Greetings and Holy kisses!!!
I'm so excited to show you something that took my absolute breath awayyyYYyyY!
Remember awhile back, I participated in Tiffany's; of Shabby Scraps, "Show me your Form Party? ~ I had so much fun playing along, and "Urina Mariah,"- KEEPER OF THE POTTING SHED, loves to show off a little... showing "her" Unique form!
One day, I turned on my blog, and "someone" used Urina's photo to sign my blog?* I clicked on it and it was from Artful Blogging, and they said they were interested in using her picture in their magazine! Talk about a JOLT of "WhooOOOHoOoOo!" ~I actually panicked though because they left no address? My friend Heidi, finally found their address and sent it to me. ~So all was well.!~ Couple weeks after that, Tiffany emailed everyone and asked for their home addy's because Artful Blogging had contacted her and wanted everyone's addresses so they'd have the ones they would use in their magazine! My hopes were rising, yet there was no promises,* so... I just waited and waited some more, and prayed! LOL
Then one day, I walked to my mailbox, and when I opened it, there was a magazine in there, that was wrapped... ~ I pulled it out and the wrapper said ARTFUL BLOGGING! Ohmigosh... Ohmigosh.... is it true? Could it be..???? I nearly hyperventilated walking, jogging, wogging... and then running... all the way to the shop. I went inside, and Trent was there... thank goodness... I'd have someone to share my joy with!! I sat down by him and opened the magazine.. being careful to save the wrapper because .... for heaven's sakes... it's ARTFUL BLOGGING... I WAS DEFINITELY GOING TO SAVE THEIR WRAPPER! LOL
This is the cover... so you can run out and find a copy if you like! I'm not positive it's out "yet," but you'll have to go see. Opening the mag, ........................................................................and
on page ..............................
Page 58.... there she is!!! The Contessa Urina Mariah.... whooHoOOoOhhoOOOoOo! When my eyes took this all in... I jumped uP and gave a SHOUT!!! Then giggled, and giggled some more!!!
Trent just watched me with a smile ear to ear. ;) AHHHHHHHH... how SWEET it felt, and feels!
Whodathought? Ya just never know... what God has in store for us!!! On the front side of my page is Heidi's manny: Spreckles! Heidi, of Everyday Cookies, and I actually "share" a page! I just can't get over it! She's on the front, and I'm on the back! WhooHoOo I told her I always knew we were "on the same page." We really have been, ~ do you remember Heidi and I met because she saw my manny's photo and the the verse I have " Won't you come into my garden, I want my roses to meet you." Heidi saw that and remember how she sent me one of her beautiful signs she makes with that very verse on it! She blessed my socks off and it was ALL over this very picture and the verse. And now, she and I are both in Arful blogging together! ---- Who knows what tomorrow will bring?!!! ............ My cup just overflows!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Urina Mariah.... is so happy! She's the Keeper of the shabby olde potting shed and now a GLAMOUR GIRL!!! She's really very humble, so I don't think she'll turn into a manny snob. In fact, just today she stood out in the warm sun and looked after things at the shed. Life is good.
God is good.
So if you ever feel like things are just "ho hum?" Think twice. Because God does marvelous things. He has purpose in everything. Even Urina Mariah being in Artful Blogging. Something will come of it... that's much bigger than she or I. " and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?"
Soli Deo Gloria,
