Unexpected beauty


I’m feeling a little like the woman on the right today..fever and achey…..no fish on the head…although I am thinking about salmon for the quilt for my Dad. We took a trip to the art museum last weekend and captured a few pictures, amongst chasing after small children trying to TOUCH the art……….need a new plan for the art museum.

I thought it ironic that before we made it in the museum I spyed these acorns, aren’t they cool. I hadn’t seen these before.


“Faith sees a beautiful blossom in a bulb, a lovely garden in a seed, and a giant oak in an acorn.”

 William Arthur Ward quotes (American dedicated scholar, author, editor, pastor and teacher)

  I couldn’t decide between these quotes, so you get two for the price of one.


  “A true friend knows your weaknesses but shows you your strengths; feels your fears but fortifies your faith; sees your anxieties but frees your spirit; recognizes your disabilities but emphasizes your possibilities.”

 William Arthur Ward quotes (American dedicated scholar, author, editor, pastor and teacher)

    I almost didn’t notice the fish on her head! Thought it was a stick. lol!
    Such unique acorns and I’m glad you showed us both quotes. It’s wonderful to have true friends who have the faith in us and would choose to nurture our strengths while understanding our weaknesses. 🙂
    Love your post on your dad! Can’t wait to see more of the quilt!
    Hope you’ll feel better.
