First Day Of Spring!!!

Today of course is the first day of spring!!!

Some of us are feeling more Springy then others,

Some of our attempts are still up in the air, like this mantle, and my new blog layout.(I don't think I like either)

But, what I'm learning as of late, is that there are few things that are actually written in stone so to speak. Things that are unchangeable. Things that will stay constant, no matter what we do in ourselves...

Gods love for us, His gift of salvation to all.
Our marriage vows.
Our love for our peeps.
Our loyalty to family, friends...

But that mantle and this "new" blog layout, Yeah, I can change it, and probably will soon.

Enjoy your first day of Spring. Find the time today to get outside and smell it. Feel it. Soak it in. Go for a walk around the neighborhood. Say Hi to a stranger along the way and give them a big first day of spring smile!!!

Hugs from Maine

Is tha a crown on your mantle? I think the mantle looks great. The blog layount....well, we're just used to seeing everything on the left. I have everything on the right, and I do like it. Go with your gut feeling, and have a great week-end, Lisa, Hugs, Kathleen

I love your mantle.

What I like about your blog layout is that you're using the entire page.

Great work!

Lisa, I have to's always uncomfortble for change..I think that's why I dont' change too often. I get used to something one way and don't like it another..It's like moving a clock..have you ever done that.. your always looking in the old place for the clock.. hard to get use to.. take some time and wait it out.

I like the new layout and the mantle! Leave it alone for a few days and then go back to it and look at it again and see if you like it or does it need tweeking. You'll know what it needs then!

Lisa, Thanks for the reminders, You are so good at knowing what you want, you will figure it out. I have been trying to switch my layout to a three column for 2 months and can't seem to find the right way to do it!! But i am not giving up. The great thing about blogs is it doesn't cost us a thing except time to remodel and change. fun!! FUn!!
