A special friend, Mariam, Watoto Village, Uganda

16 years old

Other special friends from Rwanda, Sri Lanka, Laos, Bolivia and Israel.

I love to read and always have one or two books on the go. Try to be in The Word as much as possible too. I really enjoy Christian fiction and loved Jan Karon's Mitford series. Was sorry to see it end. Also thought the Yada Yada books by Neta Jackson were great - the original series of 7 books. I think I've read all the Maeve Binchy and Belva Plain books, and enjoy Francine Rivers. Now I have a Kobo e-reader so am discovering a lot of new authors.

Not sure what my favorite is - love color in my life. I wear a lot of black & white, also brown & green, and brown & black together. Need to spruce up the wardrobe, but in my home I am currently into red accents in the kitchen, blue in the livingroom and pale green & pink in the bedroom! Who knows what the next change will bring.

Hmmm, what don't I like? Not much! Really enjoy Greek food as well as Indian, Thai and Japanese cuisine and almost all fish and seafood. Like to try many ethnic foods, but always look forward to an old-fashioned full-course turkey dinner! I don't eat much meat, and am a quasi-vegetarian (except for the turkey dinners, LOL!) Never met a cheesecake I didn't like! Add pizza to that too.

Well it's a long story! Maybe I'll do a blog with an outline of my life's highs and lows. I am a committed Christian and my whole life story is a testament to God's love, grace, mercy and guidance.

Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

I'm on the Prayer Team at our church and am humbled by the opportunity to pray for people and to witness the healing in their lives.

I am also a breast cancer survivor - over 7 years now!

The Garden

I live in the Garden of Eden,
Where God provides for me.
He protects me, He loves me,
And gives me everything I need.

And I live in that Garden of Old,
And God has sent His Son.
He’s my friend, my companion,
And also the lover of my soul.

Then Jesus brought His Spirit
Who does indwell in me.
So I abide in Him, and He
abides in me.

We walk through the Garden together,
And He keeps his arms around me.
Together we worship the Father and
Fellowship all three.

All of a sudden I notice that we
Are not alone.
All around me Guardian Angels
Sent from the Throne.

And, yes, there’s a snake in the Garden,
But I am taught not to dread.
Jesus gave His power,
To step on this enemy’s head!

I live in the Garden of Eden,
And this is where I choose to be,
With Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Looking after me.

This is the Kingdom of Heaven
And all is as it should be.
There is Love, Peace and Joy
And God’s Grace covering me.

I like peace and quiet most of the time and my home is very important to me. Enjoy sharing email with my friends and spend a lot of time on the computer. I have my favorite t.v. shows, but can do without t.v. (for a while anyway!) if I have to. Love spending time with friends over a meal or coffee. My church and church family are very important to me. I like sunshine, but not too hot or humid weather. I would love to have a small pet, but unfortunately that's not possible where I live right now.

The Stereoscope on a Spring Day in New Hampshire Joyful226

Hello my dear friend.

How are you doing? A little about this greeting. The background of this creation is the Church in this picture is a spring day in Keene New Hampshire. the Church was built and was Consecrated Oct.29, 1788 as a Congregational Church. It has been added onto and raised but the main structure is still the same today. In 1963 it merged with the Church of Christ it became The United Church of Christ Church. This is a spring picture in the City square of Keene NH I took the picture.

The Stereoscopes are on the table and the lady is holding one along with some of their slides, was a favorite way to pass the time of day for nearly 100 years.
  In 1861 Oliver Wendell Holmes created and deliberately did not patent a handheld version, Shown in this greeting. The original stereoscope which was big and expensive, dates from the 1850s, all consisted of two prismatic lenses and a wooden stand to hold the stereo card. This type, above, of stereoscope remained in production for a century and there are still companies making them in limited production currently.

I admit I have one. Well I have three but only brought one with me to NH. I have a bunch of cards that can take you in 3-D around the world and to the Worlds Fairs and all kinds of places. Some cards were hand tinted most were black and white.They are still the most amazing 3D I have ever seen.
  When I was a little girl I use to sit with my Grandparents in their home and Grandma would get out the viewers (you could adjust them to you see them perfectly by sliding the card holder forward or backward)and stacks and stacks of cards all sorted in specially designed drawers just for the stereoscope slides. The great thing about the viewers was there was no need for glasses to view them. When I was with my grandparents we would read all the good information on the back of the card, slide it into the holder and view it and you were transported into a different world and time. We could take a trip around the world right from the dining room's table, or see the Worlds Fairs or old fashioned Christmases and so much more It was great. Oh my I still love my stereoscope! (which belonged to my grandparents). I have also introduced my grandchildren to the thrill of real 3-D nothing has ever come close to it in viewability and clarity as the stereoscope.

The Viewmaster is alright but not nearly as clear or as good as these and the stereoscope doesn't mess up like the View Master does. 
 There are those that have done a rather good job of trying to create other viewers some you still have to wear glasses so you can see 3-D but still they pale in comparison to the Stereoscope. by Connie Hull

May you have a wonderful day and if you ever get a chance look for one of these believe it or not they are still made to some degree today. They are still a fascinating  way to view the world and go back in time..   Love and hugs Connie
