leap day tattoo day

I wrote the above blurb this morning before I left the house for the day fully expecting to come home “inked”.  BUT…...

 tattoo update.jpg This drawing of the actual tattoo I will be getting is all that happened tonight.  I got to the tattoo shop at 4:25pm a little later than I had said, and the shop was so full of people and the scheduling there is very loose I would say, so I didn’t really have time, and I didn’t want them to rush things so I am waiting until Wednesday the 6th of March.   Which I just realized is significant because that would be the day that in 1982, I decided to do my best to live my life the way Jesus would want me to and not the way I thought was best.  Now granted, I am not so sure that I have done very good at my end of the deal, but He has done pretty good, and this tattoo is to remind me that He calls me His beloved child, and that He will always provide for my needs, so I am actually very happy about the delay in timing, although earlier in the evening I wasn’t very happy about it.  All is better now. 

Also I thought I would help plug my friend Mark Lipinski and his new line of fabric coming out this year.  It is called Califon and here is a glimpse of them.  I didn’t ask Mark’s permission, but I am sure he won’t mind the plug.  I sure wouldn’t.  Here are some samples from his sneak peek on his blog:

Anyway this is the last post for February 2008.   Tomorrow is March.  The frogs are already croaking in the woods and waters near our home.  Linda and I are so excited to hear the frogs each spring.  They are great at announcing the wonderous season approaching
