Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. ~Philippians 4:8~

Filling In The Gaps

I'm constantly finding new and interesting things on the internet. Just found out I can earn some pennies merely by using Twitter. I'm not greedy, so a dollar earned here and there I feel is a good thing. I think that finding an honest way to make a little revenue is nothing to be ashamed of. I don't let it take over my life, I merely make use of the tools at hand whilst doing what I come online to do anyway. If I'm going to search, I will use Google, but will also use Swagbucks for a chance to increase my gift card stash. If I'm going to Tweet, I might as well take a moment to tweet for a sponsor. It's all about taking an extra minute or two and then just letting the income build up. It will be a slow process perhaps, but I'm not in a hurry, so it's ok. I guess I want to feel that as a housewife I can contribute a little to the budget, even if it's not a lot. So for now at least, I'm enjoying doing these little tasks. Very soon, I won't be able to be much on the computer, but for now, I'll have a little fun. I expect I'll make a post when I'm on the other side of the ordeal, and I can fill in all the gaps and holes I've left behind from not blogging consistently. Please just humor me. Someone once said that life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're going to get. As long as it's fun, and especially if it includes some chocolate, it's all good. This journey we're on is like being on an airplane. You have to wait for the end of the ride, cause you can't just get up and jump out a window. You sit there patiently and quietly (well, maybe not so quietly) trying to find things to occupy your mind and your time. The trick is to make sure those 'things' are good and positive and worthwhile. All along you hope that better things await you when the ride/trip does finally end.

Oh my! I'm just full of metaphors today, aren't I? Well, I haven't blogged in a while, but I will say that I've been keeping myself busy working on creating the neatest little tags and greeting cards. Still haven't gotten my sewing inspiration back, but I have faith it will all come back to me when I'm in a better state of mind. I seriously want to post pictures of my little projects, but I've been too lazy to take pictures. I will surely do so soon. Until next time, have a little faith.

Of Things That Touch My Heart

Earlier, I happened upon an article in the newspaper that I knew I simply had to follow up and try to find the video. It wasn't front page news, just a small article about a Jewish Holocaust survivor who after 63 years was able to visit the Auschwitz death camp where he had been a prisoner. The wonderful thing about the story is the fact that he was able to go there again with his Grandchildren! And to dance upon the soil which had been the victor of his nightmares, no doubt. I was touched deeply at this fine example of the triumph of the human spirit.The music selected for this video is perfect-the better to depict what it is to be a true survivor. I viewed the video with tears running down my face, because I fully comprehend the significance of this victory dance. I could sense and feel the mixture of joy and sorrow- a bittersweet illustration of being able to still smile and laugh and dance after all the pain endured. I cannot even begin to imagine being able to look back at the horror which he lived in the flesh, with such strength and dignity. I hope the video goes viral and millions are able to see it. We must never forget.
