This is a Leap Year so we get an extra day: 29 days in February. As I read somewhere this morning - maybe you did, too - we should make a point to put it to especially good use:
Give thanks for 29 things.
Smile 29 times (an hour).
Walk an extra 29 minutes.
Junk 29 useless or toxic things in the closets and cupboards.
Spend 29 minutes doing something special you've intended awhile.
Don't make your To Do list 29 items long, just for a break for today.
Read for 29 more minutes.
Call someone and let her talk to you for 29 minutes.
Read Psalm 29, and Proverbs 29.
Go to bed 29 minutes earlier.
I've got half that list checked and am trying for a few more before the day is done.
Mary, this is for you. I did another sketch of your little Sweetie. Because I was working on colorful colors today, I decided to draw this new face this time in non-standard colors. This is done in five colored pencils, three blues and two purples. It still, I think, gives the effect of warm and cool tones. What do you think?
|It is actually brighter than this, but the weather today is awful and the light is gone.|
Watch for information about a contest in March for Lent. Another one will follow, D.v., for Easter.
