What if

Jesus walked into your church?

Would He feel welcomed?
Would He sense reverence?
Would He be pleased with the message?
Would He join in the singing?
Would He find people serving others?
Would He drink coffee?
Would He hear complaining?
Would He see joy?
Would He feel unity?
Would He be happy to see people of all ages?
Would He be dazzled by the show?
Would He be impressed with the lights?
Would He enjoy the performance?

Would He even be noticed?

junk mail
junk food
junk pile
junk shop
junk bonds
junk yard
discarded but useful materials
having superficial appeal but lacking substance
something meaningless or unbelievable
possessions, your stuff
a Chinese sailing vessel
one's man's junk is another man's treasure
junk in the trunk
God don't make junk
in a dream it symbolizes things that need to be let go of & discarded
a fictional planet in the Transformers universe

Everyone has junk in their life. The kind that is not meant to be recycled, repurposed, revisioned, reused. It's time to get rid of it.

In Hindsight~

Desks & lockers ready for pickup. I wonder how many things, how many lives, how many circumstances...would be different today if it had been allowed to die the first time?

Art Dolls

The art doll club I belong to has a display at Hardesty Library this month. My little fairy is right there for all the world to see. And there she is, top row, center!It was at this very library about 3 years ago that I saw a display like this and knew I had to learn how to do this!Silly me - I thought the dolls were made from kits, or that you purchase the bodies & make the costumes. Was I ever in for a surprise! Right down to those tiny little fingers, everything is made by the doll artists. Yes, hair, too.I love this library. I don't mind one bit paying taxes for it or racking up book fines. Browsing the library is better than going to the mall, I think. Once or twice a year, the club holds a special workshop here with a well known instructor and they are oh, so much fun!!Click here to see more pictures from the display & browse the TDD blog. Best of all, stop by the library and see the display in person. You will be charmed. By the way, they have a great selection of books on doll-making. Check it out!
