Winter's Sojourn

I am making the most of winter's sojourn.
 











Enjoying some warm chili and












a loaf of homemade bread.












Painting and sketching...














and visiting with all of you dear friends!

Have a blessed day.

"Be very careful then, how you live - not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity..."
Ephesians 5:15-16 (NIV).

  1. You only wrote one or two lines, but it was perfect today! "Making the most of winter's sojourn..." I have been feeling cooped up and cold for the past week, and very tired of snow and winter in general. But you've reminded me that there are special moments to be had as well. I like that you drew your cat today, it's a sweet pose and has a very peaceful soothing feel to the drawing. I think I'll follow your example for the rest of the day!

  3. What a wonderful word in Ephesians 5 you have given! I needed to hear that.....I have always learned to be content in everything (as the Bible says) but this winter a little antsy! The Lord knows just what we need~~~Blessings to you and that homemade bread and chili hits the spot! Roxie

  7. Debbie, I love your sketch and the photos. I just realized, thanks to your lovely post, that the reason I'm feeling so disoriented right now is because I'm not getting the normal quiet time that I treasure in the winter, along with not doing all the things I normally do in winter...baking, making huge pots of soup, etc. This winter is the strangest I can remember, I just heard on the news that it's supposed to get much colder in the center and eastern part of the country...you, and your fur babies, stay safe and warm!

    Blessings,

    Victoria

  21. Your winter sojourn looks so cozy! I'm cooking sloppy joes in our slow cooker today, and I need to encourage my husband to pull out the bread machine--he uses it more than I do, and there are few things more delicious than homemade bread.
