Gather the Fragments!

Wow! I feel as if I'm the 
HONORED GUEST at the party!
Paint Party Friday that is! 
Hope I'm not underdressed
with just my WIPs!

I'm working on an altered book,
courtesy of some free lessons from

And for my journal for today,
a verse from the story about the 
multiplication of the loaves and fishes.

We can all be the person in the story
who gave his loaves and fishes 
to God.
When we give our time, talent,
and resources to the Lord,
anything is possible!  

And for all my friends at
I missed a post for the first time 
since I started joining in
because my family and I
(all 16 of us!)
went to Caramoan,
a remote place here in the Philippines.
We did a lot of island hopping.

None of us can compete with God's 
Here's a picture of one of the islands
we stopped at.
Its name is Bugtong and that is the boat we rode
to get there. The boat is named 
"Survivor" because the reality TV series "Survivor"
is filmed in the Caramoan Islands.
The Serbian, Israeli, French , US versions 
are filmed here because of its beauty 
and remoteness!
