I Love It!

I trust that you all have noticed the recent changes to my blog.

OOH! I'm so excited! I feel official now! :)

My friend Chandy did all of the design work for me, seemingly overnight!

I love it! Don't you love it?!?!?!?

When she first sent the design to me for review, I loved the look of it, but was initially thinking that I'd use photographs of my own Bible, and such.

Yet, I couldn't get my act together to get that done. :) See my post on great intentions.

And, I just kept thinking about the picture of the wheat, and the Word...and found it pretty cool that our leadership development group is going through the study on Ruth right now...and that gleaning and sowing and reaping are all top of mind for me at this very moment.

So, I called her and said, "Let's go with it. I love it, and I just need to trust that."

And WHAAAAAAALAAAA- it was done by that night!

Thank you so much, Chandy! It's so pretty! I love it, I love it, I love it!

Thank you!

P.S. I even sent her an email last night to ask her if she'd like to make some money designing for others, and this was her sweet reply....

Nah... I don't need to make any more money. But I would be happy to make blog headers for anyone who would like one :) Perhaps if someone was compelled to render payment for my silly little services, they could just make a gift to Compassion or something...

I love this very much. It got the message across - I acutally stared at it for a bit trying to determine if indeed that was your own Bible. In the end, it didn't matter.

Good job!

It's perfect for your blog! It's inspired me to update my blog. Maybe I'll do that this weekend.. I've been meaning to update it for ages. I'm still using the generic template from blogger...
