Two 4 Tuesday

In Alzheimers, Matthew, Shelburne Museum, Two 4 Tuesday on August 31, 2010 at 2:21 pm

This is a hand-made wall hanging, in honor of the maker’s family member who suffered from Alzheimer’s; being one of many displayed at the Shelburne Museum during the months of May through October.

Walking in and being surrounded by such heart-pouring art really touched me. As I reviewed each piece, tears flowed from my eyes. My faith assures me that those who knew The Lord while their memory’s were strong, continue to know Him on the inside as they live with this disease; whether or not we (on the outside) are able to see or understand. I trust Him in that ♥

Matthew 5:8 reminds us…”God blesses those whose hearts are pure, for they will see God.”

Two 4Tuesday

In Art and Paintings, Shelburne Museum, Two 4 Tuesday on August 24, 2010 at 11:15 am

With this week’s theme, I chose to display “History” as my contribution. Impressed by the unbreakable bond that we share with those gone before us, the proof of life once existing and the unique ways of living; we realize how fragile it all can be.

My family went to the Shelburne Museum last weekend, a place that we often go, but always find more to catch out attention; things that were there, that we’ve not seen once before. Full of life, of history, unbreakable and fragile.

Found, here in Vermont, as workers were going to tear apart a building….these old circus posters were fixed underneath the siding, onto the original structure of the building. Again, an unbreakable piece of history…yet so fragile to keep. Restorers worked hard at keeping what they could of the old posters and a few can be found on the walls of the Circus building here.

Meet My Friend

In other bloggers, Shelburne Museum on August 23, 2010 at 1:56 pm

She’s a beautiful woman who has encouraged me time and again through the years of knowing her. We met, originally, through our local MOPS group (I think)…maybe it was church or another mutual friend. Oh well, who cares how we met.

A fellow-ess writer, she just began blogging and I know that many will find her words encouraging as she writes from her heart. Do pay her a visit, will you?

Captured at The Shelburne Museum, she was taken from the bow of a late 19th century American Ship, known to be crafted by Charles A.L. Sampson

Forgive all of the noise in this photo, I really don’t like to use my flash.

In 1 Samuel, Giraffes, listening, Shelburne Museum on August 22, 2010 at 2:27 am

I’m exhausted tonight with thoughts of a wonderful week we’ve had. Wanting to share it all, wanting to dance with words but the words are tripping and my eyes are getting glossy….

Church in the morning, helping to share the message of Samuel (when he first hears from God) with the preschooler’s. I love that bit of history…I just love that story. “Samuel.”….and he runs to Eli. You know the story, right? If not, you can read about it in 1 Samuel 3:1-10

God has heard; that’s the meaning of the name Samuel.

So, I share with you this photo that I took today. We went to the Shelburne Museum; a place that always allows you to go back in time, put yourself into a place of history and where you see something new every time you visit.

As I look at these giraffe’s, I see their heads held high, as if they were listening intently. Aren’t they beautiful? They’re made of wood and were used on a carousel once upon a time.

† The LORD came and stood there, calling as at the other times, “Samuel! Samuel!” Then Samuel said, “Speak, for your servant is listening.”
