My Home on the Gulf
The news came today that tar balls have begun to heavily litter the beaches of Pensacola. For those who love our natural environment around the Gulf of Mexico as much as I do, this news is extremely sad. My heart aches for those who've lost jobs and their livelihoods because of this mess. I'm posting two pictures taken at a local state park on the Gulf back in May. These pictures are of two common birds that live and roost on our shores. Because of the oil spill, these great birds are in danger of losing their homes and livelihoods too.
My hope and prayer is that this oil mess can be cleaned up soon and that God's great plan includes a way for nature to continue to be resilient. I'm looking forward to the coast being able to bounce back in order for the balance to be restored to this beautiful and important resource.
Thank you for putting up with my ramblings. I have a picture of a wedding cakethat I'll try and post tomorrow.
By the way . . . congrats to the U.S. soccer team for their victory in the World Cup today. Woohoo!
I like scrapbooking, cardmaking, sewing, and scuba diving. My life revolves around my God, family, close friends, and my work. Because I have a life outside of my work and home, I don't always post as regularly as I should because life gets in the way. I deeply appreciate anyone that comes this way and I hope that you will pop in for a visit every now and then. Cheers and happy crafting!

Your fairy is called Fire Elffilter
She is a cheerful sprite.
She lives where fireflies mate and breed.
She is only seen on midsummer's eve.
Her dresses glow with fiery colours. She has delicate green wings like a cicada.
