Jack the Koi

The end of August and the sky is overcast with the promise of rain. The goldfish in the pond pretend they are koi as they splash their fins in and out of the cool morning waters. When we are children it’s fun to play dress up and prance around like the princesses that our mother’s tell us we are. It’s good to watch the fish playing and remember the play times when we are transported from the chores of everyday life into a fantasy world. What is it they say? All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

Today I am thankful for my life and that each day I have the opportunity to work and play. Finding balance in life is a good thing. I'm thanking God too for the gift of His son Jesus Christ and His presence in my life.

John 3:16
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Just thought I'd drop by and see what's on the canvas today. Absolutely love the picture and the cute little description. Hope all is well in Georgia!

Thank you Joni... I'm okay tonight. A sinus infection has had me a bit down. I'll check back with you soon.

Word of the day.
