An Illumination

Let there be light...


To fill our days with industry


and our nights with interest.


To communicate with those near


and far.
 

Let there be light to see the world through each other's eyes,


and to guide us along this intriguing path of life.
  

"May it be a light to you in dark places, when all other lights go out." ~J.R.R. Tolkien
 

A special thanks to Marcia at The Shop Around the Corner for inviting us to her White-Themed Party and inspiring us to illuminate our lives.

Dearest Jess, Nel and my wonderful Sheri,

This was a beautiful post and I was unable to attend. I spent an entire week away from the computer, entertaining an old friend who came all the way from Texas to stay with me. Light is a wonderful thing to share, especially in the close company of friends. HAPPY DAY! Anita

NEL IS GETTING MARRIED SOON! OMGOODNESS soon she will be smiling and feeling like the princess I know she is!!! HAVE A BLAST finding just the right jewelry for her wedding ensemble!

THANK YOU DEAR FRIEND for visiting today! We are having a HOT ONE TOO, but with bright blue skies and puffy clouds. I SO missed the Christmas in July party and all of YOU. There more fun to be had, that is for sure!

Enjoy this gorgeous day! Anita
