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

A Super Model is Born!

I mention in my profile that I work at Curves. If you don't know, Curves is a great workout place especially designed for women! Well, last spring the people who put out Diane magazine, which is the official Curves magazine, came to our neck of the woods for a casting call. And now guess what?! I'm going downtown tomorrow to do a photo shoot for the magazine! Our manager just got back from New York City (as they say in the commercials) where they shot her pics for the cover!! If I make the magazine I'll be in the very back under a section called Body Love. It's a section that focuses on what women like about their bodies. Trust me it wasn't my rear end that's for sure! So I know you want to know... what I loved about my body, (mostly out of the process of elimination) was my arms! No they're not skinny but because of working out at Curves they ain't too flabby!! and they come in handy when you want to give someone a big hug when they need it! Now my challenge to you is to hear what you love about your body and why! Don't be shy ladies, keep it clean, and be proud! God gave you every bit!


  1. Oh Laura Lu! I am so excited for you! I go to Curves and, of course, get Diane magazine! Please let us know which issue so I can look for you!! And which part I like about my body??? My nose! lol Have a great weekend!...Debbie

  2. Wow! That is so neat! Hmmm, I will have to think long and hard on this one...I have to agree with Debbie, my nose is kinda cute. : ) And I like my eyes and hair. Most of the time, anyway.

    I will tell my husband that you're gonna be famous!

  3. Congratulations Laura! So exciting! I almost "know" a super model! Hmmm, my favorite part of my body has to be my mouth, because I can use it to eat AND talk! laurie

  4. Well they know how to pick em, me thinks *winks* I have to tell ya I have some pretty good feet...I do fabulous toe cleavage! Lol! Vanna

  5. Great post, and congratulations on being a super model! How exciting. Hope the photo shoot went great :) I like my arms, too, because I go to aerobics four times a week and we use little weights and it really helps with defining those muscles :)

  6. Hi Lauralu...cute post. I'm happy with my nose...now my hips...that's another story! LOL

  7. Hi Laura, I'm back. After looking at your gorgeous tassels, I want to make some too! I've been noticing other gals in Blogland going to town making these. I have a question, how do you get the little eyelet hook in the object if it's not made of wood. I have some little porcelain like roosters, but wouldn't know how to attach the hooking ribbon. If it's a secret, that's okay. I was just wondering.
    Thanks Dear One,
    Shelia ;)
