The best things in life...

....are things you buy at garage sales. Oh, wait! That's not exactly how the saying goes.
I love this sign. Our youth group had a garage sale this weekend to raise money for people going on mission trips. They made $1400. The sign and the candlestick are a couple of the things I bought. The sign was painted by our youth minister's wife. She is very talented. The board came from a trip where the youth (or might have been the college group) went to help clean up after a natural disaster (tornado or hurricane). Guess I need to get the story straight. I really should get the details. I would like to write on the back of the board where it came from.
I bought these a while back at a garage sale. I think they will be great on cards or packages.
Anyone know anything about bonnets? I think this may be considered a button bonnet. I know it is not a great picture since it is just laying flat on the table. It appears to be quite old.

Today on our walk my friend and I encountered three snakes. They were sunning themselves on the trail. We had to walk around them. I was pretty creeped out. I think they may have been cottonmouths. I don't want to go back. I need to go back. Walking is good and I really love it when the weather cooperates and we can be outside. Why do the snakes have to sun themselves on our trail? I don't like worms and I certainly don't like snakes. Yuck!

{We should not test the Lord, as some of them did—and were killed by snakes. I Cor. 10:9}

Those creepy, crawly things just keep getting in your way! Just keep staying on the right track and He will direct your path.
