Shhhh. Listen.

Do you hear that sound?


I think that's what you've been hearing at my blog the past few months.... the sounds of silence broken only occasionally by a surprise post here and there.

Well, I'm still trying to work out the discipline of fitting blog-time back into my schedule, and I do appreciate those of you who still pop by to see me! I think I'll get there eventually...

For some reason, the month of January is usually a bit difficult for me. My job is always extremely busy in January, so I feel like I work a lot. And, also, I think it's the let-down after the busy holiday season of spending time with friends and loved ones. The combination usually results in me struggling with being emotional (negatively) and having to work at not being "down."

As you know by now, I love "happening upon" God's little reminders of His amazing love for and thoughts of me. And in January, it's extra special to find them.

Tonight I made a quick stop at Costco (one of my very favorite stores!!) to pick up a couple of photos I had ordered. When I went to get back in my car, I discovered this delightful little message right next to my car door...

...a shimmery silvery message of love...
Thanks, God, for remembering me today...
Thank You, my Father, for reminding me...
...note: the circle around the heart is from my flashlight as I was taking the photo...


  1. This is a great photo and message.

  2. What a tender reminder during such times, hang in there, He cares.

  3. That is too cool. So nice to "see" you here on this day. You're a dear soul.

  4. Sharilyn,
    I hope you get this comment. I loved how you said that "crickets" are the only sound you hear at your blog. Boy, can I relate. I pulled up my blog--the first time in a over a month--and decided I'd better get to it. You are one of the two--yes two!!!--people who have commented on my blog ( So, I thought it only fitting to come to yours. I'll post one if you will. :-)

  5. ok, gwenn... tag--you're it!! : )

  6. I've heard crickets over at my blog too. I guess it is contagious. I hear what you are saying and am trying too to get myself in gear...I don't know what my problem is but I can't seem to get motivated to do anything! Ugh!
    But I love this post and the next one as well. I'm amazed at how you see these things everywhere! Too cool!


I'm so glad you've stopped by! I love hearing from you and can't wait to read your comments! Let me know what's on your mind and your heart today...
