A Little Break.....

"I have to get inspired by something that touches my soul."
~Steven Tyler~
I have been sitting here looking for a little blogging inspiration and I have yet to find it. So, instead of trying to force a post to come forth, I will wait until something touches my soul. I will be taking a blogging break for the next week. I hope to come back with new and delightful things to share.

Hi Sandy, While on break maybe you'll get a chance to photograph some unique architecture in your part of the world and share when you come back. It's fun to be able to view different parts of the world from my chair! Any definitive news about whether the new grandbaby is a girl or boy?

Enjoy your break and thanks for your visits to my blog - I appreciate your friendship.

Is it catching? You may have caught it from me.

I will miss you, but understand perfectly that you need to refresh and rest and think and do.

Oh, did you decide on a procrastination project yet?

I hope your break is just the refreshment you need. We'll miss you!

Hi again! what a lovely story! i think it was leonardo da vinci who said 99% persperation, 1% inspiration?
it reminds me of this story
"a wonderful parable about a man living in a cabin in the woods who, one night, woke up to see a bright light shining in the cabin. He understood that it was God. God said to him, "There is something I want you to do."

The man inquired what it was, and God responded, "There is a big boulder in front of your cabin. I want you to go out there every day and push, and push, and push against that boulder."

The man took God's instructions seriously. Day after day for many, many weeks he pushed against that boulder. But he couldn't budge it an inch. After awhile an idea came into his head, which he understood to be the voice of the devil. "Look, you don't have to bother with this. You have done your best. You won't succeed at this. Accept that you have failed. It is useless. Then just take it easy and do the least amount of work you can."

Before the man would take that advice, however, he decided to pray. He prayed and prayed and prayed. "God, I have done what You asked me. I have been very faithful. Every day for hours I have been pushing against that rock, but I have not budged it an inch. I have failed."

Then God, with great compassion, answered. "Son, you are not a failure. I asked you to push against that rock, and you were obedient. I never asked you to move it. I asked you to push against it.

"Because you have pushed faithfully and diligently against that rock every day, notice how strong your arms have become. Your back is brown and sinewy, your legs are massive; you are in such better shape now than you were. You have learned a lot because you have been faithful and obedient."

Then God said to the man, "You have trusted me. Now I will move the rock."
a little long but so beautifully moving.
have a glorious week!!

I hope you come back with something you can hardly wait to share. I often am awear that I have become bored with myself. If those times I start reading blogs that I never have seen. It is fun, and you see new and different things.
I will be waiting for your return.... Mary
