Let The Children Come

Look at the abortion ticker on the top right side of this blog. Does it touch your heart at all

Do what you can to eradicate this terrible crime around the world. Protect the unborn.

And they brought young children to (Jesus), that He should touch them: and His disciples rebuked those that brought them.
But when Jesus saw it, He was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto Me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.

Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.

And He took them up in His arms, put His hands upon them, and blessed them.
(Mark 10:13-16)

A White Basket Of Flowers

Today we were about to throw out an old basket. I didn't have any specific use for it and it was dirty (no, I didn't want to spend time cleaning it). But then I thought "Oooh...this would make a lovely planter!"

And by late afternoon it was all done. 

Here's the basket, waiting to be worked on.
 I lined it at the bottom with plastic and punched holes in it for drainage
so it won't rot quite as quickly. Then I added a shallow layer of dirt.
On this same afternoon I bought some torenias, 2 each of 3 colors.
I placed them in the basket...

 ...then put in more dirt...

 ...spreading it evenly around them.

 Voila! Project done.
 Now for a formal photo session of my new babies...
 Dark purple/blue (is it indigo?)



 Bird's eye view.

Now where should I put it? For now, it will sit beside our
new loveseat which my DH bought for me today, an early
Valentine's Day gift. Perfect!
