the internet again. I just love doing this and seeing what’s out there.

Today, being Saturday Scavenger Photo Hunt, I found the coolest website that features pictures of Virginia…from a different part of the state. We live in the Shenandoah Valley in the mountains and I found someone who lives down near Williamsburg and posts her pictures here at Deep Red Style. Go check out her pics for a different perspective of our state.

AND THEN, I found this place called GlassGiant where you can do all kinds of fun stuff with pictures~and other things. This is one of my favorite photos of Hubby and Grammy’s Girl’s hands. So I created this:

Now I’m feeling:

Early Valentine’s

This came in an email and I thought it was sooooo fantastic, I just had to share.

Your Devine Valentine by Holley Gerth

A Valentine may play a love song for you
but God sings you the sweetest love song in the universe.

The Lord your God…will rejoice over you with gladness,
He will keep you quiet with his love, He will rejoice over
You with singing. Zeph. 3:17

A Valentine may give you flowers,
but God sent you the most beautiful rose of all, Jesus.

I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.
Song of Solomon 2:1

A Valentine may take you out to dinner,
but God has invited you to the most amazing feast ever given.

Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper
of the Lamb! Rev. 19:9

A Valentine may bring you chocolate,
but God provides you with something even sweeter, His Word.

How sweet are your words to my taste,
sweeter than honey to my mouth! Psm. 119:103

A Valentine may be far away,
but God is always with you.

I am with you always. Matt. 28:20

A Valentine may give you something,
but God has given you everything.

God gives us richly all things to enjoy. 1 Tim. 6:17

A Valentine may love you for a lifetime,
but God loved you before you were born and will
love you for all eternity!

Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love…
with lovingkindness I have drawn you. Jer. 31:3

AND, I wanted to let you know about something else I just discovered. Overwhelmed With Joy! is hosting a Favorite Ingredients Friday on CHOCOLATE recipes this Friday, Feb. 9 If you love chocolate, why not participate too. I’ve got a great recipe for a Valentine’s Day treat.

Today, while browsing again, I came across this hysterical post from Lazy Daisy that will make you laugh for sure~especially if you are…oh say…50ish.

You’ve heard about the 2007 Hidden Treasure Blog Awards for writing excellence sponsored by Everyday Mommy. Check it out here or on my sidebar. Nominations begin on February 1 which is only 8 days from now.

And, of course, you’ve heard about the Ultimate Blog Party where you can get your blog noticed. This one is sponsored by 5 Minutes for Mom and begins March 2. Go check it out…fun and PRIZES…some really good ones too.

BUT…have you heard about Performancing? If not, please go check this one out. It is one of the best online tools I’ve found for blogging. In fact, I’m using it right now. It’s like a word processing program that, when started, comes up on the bottom half of your screen while you are surfing or blogging or whatever. I actually left the above links open in my browser while typing this entry! If you are anything like me, I forget to copy a link address or forget the exact name of a blog. With this program, the blog or website is on top of my window. Once I’ve finished my post, I’ll send it to publish to this blog. It features many of the same utilities your blog editor does. Sometimes I’m not very good at explaining things well, so go check it out. It’s pretty amazing.
