Diane, I have to make a comment about your banner. It is so appropriate for the way you write. Peaceful, hopeful, and encouraging. Dandelions are beautiful, petals blown up in the air is like sending wishes and prayers up to heaven. Even dreams and hopes.......flies up to the God who cares. That is what I feel about your banner, D. Whew...... I searched for the name of this flower, my mind slips. I don't know if they ever grow in our country.And for the place in the picture, I love to spend time there in peace..... what a vacation it would be!I read Christian blogs, because mostly now, I depend on the web.... they are free and easy to find. I just am a little sorry if there are those that only gives intro to their books.
Fhank you for your comments about the new banner. Betty's niece, Amanda Draper, is working on it for me. Still not quite right. Hopefully, she will have it finished over the weekend. Dandelions in this country are considered weeds. Most people put weed killer on their lawns so that the dandelions do not grow. I love them. No chemicals on my lawn and lots of dandelions!I had a vision for this banner for over a year. Working on it over and over. I finally found the photo but it was a square, so after I saw Betty's new banner, I asked her niece to help me with mine. She got it to be the rectangle. Just have to work on the fonts now.The title for this post: Calgon, take me away, is from a commercial on TV when I was a kid. Calgon was a bubble bath and that was the line the woman woman, who was having a stressful day, would say was, "Calgon, take me away" and then there would be a seen of her peacefully soaking in a tub full of bubbles. Just wanted to explain that to you as I know you wouldn't know the commercial.
Sorry for the typos - I don't have my reading glasses on and Blogger doesn't let you fix errors once posted. I know you forgive me! LOL.
I LOVE the new look to your blog, Diane! Blue is one of my favorite colors, and of course the thistle blowing in the wind. I've used that image on a post or two, but this one is really beautiful. I'd love to be by the beach right now... Ah, yes, calgon...
Thank you, Pam. Yes, blue is one of my favorites as well - next to yellow.Remember those commercials?I cannot wait for you to read my next post. It was written a few days ago, awaiting a creation someone was doing for me. I woke up at 3 this morning to check emails to see if it was done. It was. I've been crying, soaking in the Presence of The LORD - the gift of The LORD to me...I am blessed beyond measure!
Diane-How well I recall the commercial and have used that phrase "Calgon, take me away" so many times when everything was too stressful and emotionally draining!!! I loved the commercial and can close my eyes and see it, plain as day!!thanks for sharing this memory!Love, Martha
D-Now I see why that seems to be a beacon. It really is a tag-line of a commercials. Thanks for letting me know.
Martha, I don't know what happened to my response to you....it's disappeared...or maybe I never clicked "Publish Your Comment"...that's probably it.Anyway...Glad you liked the memory!
Your welcome, Lolita!
