Special Day of Romance,
I found four vintage images that I thought you might
 like to use when making your
Valentines for that Special Someone!!

This couple looks as though they
 are simply "Mad" for each other!

Oh, the Thrills of Young Love!!

 My Love Reveals Objects
my love reveals objects
silken butterflies
concealed in his fingers

his words
splash me with stars

night shines like lightning
under the fingers of my love

my love invents worlds where

jeweled glittering serpents live

worlds where music is the world

worlds where houses with open eyes
contemplate the dawn

my love is a mad sunflower that forgets
fragments of sun in the silence

                        --Isabel Fraire

Today is Angel Day!

Another wonderful person has
found my web site today and I 'm
so glad to have found her too!
Tracy Suzanne
 is a very precious person
with such a beautiful spirit
 and a great love for God! 
She has a Mission
that she wants to share
 with others called
"Miracle Monday"! 

What a great idea! 
Couldn't we all use a
miracle in our lives!
There is so much pain and
suffering in our world today! 
It is good to  reach out and draw
strength and encouragement
from each other when facing days
of distress and discouragement!
 Please, if you get a chance, go to
Tracy's website
and read her lovely posts !
They will inspire you to reach out
and touch someone's heart today that
 might need your loving care!
  "Big Thank You"
and free clip art goes
out to Tracy today!
I hope you enjoy the
Angels and Spring  Bouquets
that I am sending your way!

    2 Timothy 1:7

For God has not given us a
spirit of fear and timidity,
but of power, love,
and self-discipline.

Luke 1:37
For nothing is impossible with God.

Love is patient, love is kind.

It does not envy,
it does not boast,
 it is not proud.

It is not rude,
it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.

 Love does not delight in evil
but rejoices with the truth.

It always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails.

 And now these three remain
 faith, hope, and love.
      But the greatest of these is love.

     1 Corinthians 13: 4-8a, 13


I'd also like to send a
"Big Thanks" to Theresa !

 lovely vintage images
