Stained Glass Christmas Tree

It was another pajama craft morning. Treyton wanted to make a Christmas tree. So here's what we did. I cut out a tree from green paper. Then I cut a variety of sized circles throughout the tree.
Then I traced the circles with glue.
And then Treyton had at it! He took the cut up tissue paper and placed them all over his tree.
Here's the underside of his tapestry. It sort of remindes me of God's will for our lives. It may look crazy and messy at times, but we don't see how all the mess works together to create beauty.
From another angle, it's beautiful. Just as God sees the whole picture, not just the underside.
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." (Rom 8:28)

Blast From the Past

In high school I was a part of the elite dance team called the Bravettes. Facebook just formed a group, and I took this picture from my first year of high school. I am in the back row, 3rd from the right next to the blonde girl. I spent more hours with these girls than my own family, friends, or schoolwork combined! Our "season" was from June until Feb each year. We were always practicing, performing, or competing. Ah, the memories.
