I love the colors of Christmas: red and green. Just for fun I’m going to pick some pictures from my photo gallery, pictures from nature that blend these two colors. I’ve gone through my photo albums and picked pictures with these colors. I’ll be writing some stories about those pictures this month. It will be something fun and different.
The following is the picture that got me thinking in this direction. A memory from this past summer, with record-setting heat that gave me just a few tomatoes. The plant grew big as a mountain, but there wasn’t much fruit to enjoy.
This will do for now. They have done some changes on the site where I blog and to upload these picture took me forever. I know! I shouldn’t say “forever” because that is a very long time! It seemed forever!
I’ll have to figure out the new system, but it’s late and my brain isn’t up to that now. It needs to rest. I’ve been working on my weekly story and tomorrow I’ll give it the final touches. It’s about a girl who won a Bible in a Q&A contest. I used to have those contest with my kids in Sunday school. And that’s what inspired me to write.
Have you ever won a contest?
I won a contest once in Canada. We had to leave for Peru. The teacher promised to send me the prize, but it never arrived. Maybe she did send it and it got lost in the mail. I was ten at the time. In my ten-year-old heart I always wondered why I never got my prize. I’ve gotten over it by now!
Lesson learned to pass on. Never promise a kid something you are not planning to keep. I hope I can keep the promise I’m making about writing stories based on my Christmas color pictures.
Tomorrow is a new day. I’ll hope it will be bright and happy.
