I love these little colonial girls. Their clothing is so authentic - pure 18th-century stuff. Even back then girls had way more fun dressing than little boys, although often you often couldn't tell who was who as boys usually wore girlish attire till graduating to more manly breeches. Check out the straw hat and hat pin! Clever way to keep that pretty ribbon in place.
I've spent the weekend working on book 3 while running kids places, fighting a cold, making a huge pot of spaghetti, and walking in the heat wave we're having. It's been the warmest January on record here with some recent days hovering around 60 degrees! Kentucky weather:)
My schedule is getting a bit sweeter with a visit from my Kentucky momma on the horizon. February and March look fun as I'll be guest blogging over at Cathy Bryant's Word Vessel and Seekerville. I promise to post the links when the time comes so you can visit if you like. For now I'm thinking up discussion questions for book clubs for Courting Morrow Little and reading galleys for an author who has asked for endorsements. Never dull here:)
Most importantly, I've been trying to meditate on verses regarding the heart. Since Myrna commented on a particularly moving Scripture in my last post, I've tried to commit it to memory. Here are some translations of Proverbs 4:23:
Above all else guard your heart for it is the treasure of the kingdom.
Keep thy heart with all diligence for out of it are the issues of life. KJV
Keep vigilant watch over your heart; that's where life starts. The Message Bible
Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life. NASB
Do you have a verse that is especially meaningful to you? I'd love for you to share it here.
