 I had my Christmas red's up at Thanksgiving.  Earliest I had ever done that.  In January I took down the tree and the Christmas decorations but left all the splashes of red. 
 After Valentines Day I decided it was time to put the red away and bring out the yellow and celebrate Spring.  I had a Christmas Swag over the mirror for Christmas but recently found this magnolia swag at the thrift store and thought it would be a nice change over the mirror in the dinning area.
 It already is looking brighter.  I love the shadow on the wall from the kitchen window.  My watercolor on the wall is my "Apple Blossom" which works very nicely with the spring color theme.
 The little ivy was transferred from red pot to yellow.
This corner by my stove is used so often.  I have to have soft butter and use it for cooking, so my butter dish had a permanent spot, along with the little blue crock ~ kosher salt, and the white crock, raw sugar.  Changed my red tea kettle for the yellow.  Also have a black one.  Can't have too many tea kettles.

Front and back of my little Powershot SD 750 ~ Done with colored pencils and black sharpie.

The challenge this week was "Fill in the Blank" and that blank was a rectangle.  So many things come in the shape of a rectangle, but my little Cannon SD 750 camera was laying on my desk.. so 'walla'...the perfect rectangle at my finger tips.
So smile... I'm going to take your picture.

To see what everyone else came up with just click on the Scribble Picnic Badge on my sidebar.

And remember this....Don't be SQUARE... Be a RECTANGLE.

Studying!  We are doing a study of the Minor Prophets in my Tuesday morning Women's Bible Study.  You know those little books in the middle of the Bible that get passed over more often that not.  "Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Johan, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi.  (Trying saying those names fast three times...haha)

When I study I like to use different commentaries and see what some of the Bible Scholars have to say, but mostly, I try to see how these books can be applied to my life in today's society.

It's amazing that each of these books share two things.  A warning, because the people of God had turned away and become worshiper of idols and doing evil in the sight of the Lord.  But after the warning, there is always a plea for repentance and forgiveness and blessing.

How true for our society today.  So much evil and corruption.  so much violence and pain.  So many warnings....The question, will we heed them.  Where does it start...with me.  I pray let me be a light in the darkness, a breath of fresh air in a stale and stagnate world, a ray of hope because I know the end of the story.  Do you?

 Romans 15:30  "I urge you, brothers, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit to join me in my struggle by praying to God for me."

Thank You, Father, for the fellowship of the Spirit in the body of Christ.  Thank You that when we come to You in prayer we are joined to one another.  How comforting it is to know that, even when I am separated physically from my brothers and sisters in Christ, I am never alone as long as I am in their prayers.  Thank You for praying friends.  I love You.  Amen

Several years ago, I painted this Valentine Card for my dearest.  It is rather "Mushy" with all those lumpuious lips, however the message is side was even mushier..but that's private..HaHaHa.  It was the first thing I thought of when I saw the theme for Valentines Day. 

But if that not mushy about a Valentine bowl of "MUSH"

Hoping you get some "mush" from the one you love this Valentines Day.
