“The purest and most thoughtful minds are those which love color the most.” John Ruskin
there is a new beginning.
Today is Jorry’s last day at his current employer’s.
I am at peace and actually feel excited to see where things are going to go.
We will be fine. We always have been.
This is the second ending and new beginning in just two weeks time.
The first was the ending of my walk with God as I thought He was, and the beginning of my walk with Him as He intended it to be all along.
I know there will be growing pains in both my spiritual walk and in they walk that Jorry is beginning.
I am however, quite sure that the joy we have as a family will override the pain.
Just last night Jorry was telling me about a license that he needs to purchase for his business.
I woke up this morning to check my email and I had a notice from paypal.
Someone sent us exactly the amount we need to buy the license.
The purchase of that license will allow Jorry to complete his first job which will take care of the bills for the month of June.
I am confident the other months after that will be taken care of as well.
Thank you for all of your prayers and positive thoughts. We still covet them.
So here’s to new beginnings!
There will come a time when you believe everything is finished. That will be the beginning.

On this day of your life, JoAnn, I believe God wants you to know…
…that if you do not expect the unexpected you will not find it,
for it is not to be reached by search or trail.
Heraclitus said that, and he was right.
Life is delighted to bring you The Unexpected.
Are you delighted to receive it?
Indeed, belief in the coming of The Unexpected is the
genesis of hope. How can you hope for anything breathtaking or
exciting if you can only hope for the already expected? Therefore,
you must always think that anything can happen. Form your ideas
and your dreams within that framework! Remember,
God specializes in The Unexpected.

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up. ~Pablo Picasso
Today I am grateful for
enough left over yarn to knit a new soaker for Z
just to name a few.
