The Skies Were Blue Today

The sky is the daily bread of the eyes.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

The sky was blue today,
I wanted to go out and play












I took my good camera with me but forgot the memory card in my computer!
Thank goodness for phone cameras.

I snapped these few pics on the way to meet a friend I haven't seen for long.
We exchanged Christmas gifts. Yes, you read that right.
We don't get together so often but we pray for one another a lot.
She gave me a wonderful book on alternative health remedies.  She also gave me a pretty glass bird which had a mottled blue colour inside.
I will try to take a picture and add it here later. The gifts were perfect.




I gave her a few hand knitted dishcloths in her favourite colour (variegated yarn in red)
and a personal alarm device.  The latter she can can use when she is travelling alone at night from her ministry at the old folks home.

  3. It's the little puffs of white cloud that make the sky interesting.

  12. Beautiful blue skies! And how special that the blue bird contains the color of the sky! Your gift and story reminds me of this verse,

    All good gifts are from above, coming down from the Father of heavenly lights... from James 1:17

    Blessings and Love♡
