God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

Keep vital. Are you getting old and tired? Charles Lamb said, "We grow old in our spirit long before we grow gray in our hair." I've seen so many people who exemplify the happy opposite of that: people with gray hair, or no hair at all, who never did grow gray in their spirits. Life should never grow dull or flat to us. It should never lose it's luster.
What a great message for me...going into fall then winter. I was thinking about winter coming and how I would be in the house more...not being able to work outside. Feeling the dread of finding something to do each day. Forgetting that I have so many fun things to do here at home...reading my tall pile of books saved, art work, plant care, cooking, TV shows, needlework, catching up with family and friends, my work at Church and of course blogging. Joe has little Christian notes on our fridge...to remind us of good things.I think that these little reminders help keep us vital. We read them and the message takes off in our brains and maybe those thoughts help to give us a good day.What do you do to keep vital?
