Hymn of Promise

In the bulb there is a flower; in the seed, an apple tree; in cocoons, a hidden promise; butterflies will soon be free! In the cold and snow of winter there's a spring that waits to be, unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.

There's a song in every silence, seeking word and melody; there's a dawn in every darkness, bringing hope to you and me. From the past will come the future; what it holds, a mystery, unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.

In our end is our beginning; in our time, infinity; in our doubt there is believing; in our life, eternity. In our death, a resurrection; at the last, a victory, unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see. ~~ words & music by Natalie Sleeth, 1986 United Methodist Hymnal

Look for me in the funny pages!

Well Ladies...I received an email last night from a lady at Diane magazine wanting to confirm the information they were going to publish in the June issue! I am just guessing that this means I'm gonna be published in the Body Love section of the June issue of Diane Magazine! Aren't I so special!!! LOL


  1. Hey Girlfriend...

    Ohhh my...Congratulations, my friend!!! How exciting and what an honor!!! Of course, when you get the issue with your lovely self in it...you will blog on it, won't you? I'd love to see it!!! I do remember reading one of your first blog posts about this...I'm just so very happy for you, Sweetie!!! Congratulations!!!

    I'm so glad that you stopped by this morning to take a peek at my ebay ironstone bargain! I know...I just couldn't believe it and kept wondering if the seller was someone less than honest...know what I mean? Hehe! I'm always shopping ebay for transferware because I collect the red! It can get pretty expensive...more than I'm willing to spend!

    Well before I forget...I just wanted to tell you that I enjoyed your "Foodie Friday" post, that ham & bean soup looked delicious and I love, love, love cornbread so I'm going to try that recipe! Thanks so much for sharing it!
