This & That ~ and some Freebies

Restlessness and impatience change nothing
except our peace and joy.
Peace does not dwell in outward things,
but in the heart prepared to wait trustfully
and quietly on Him who has all things
safely in His hands.
Elisabeth Elliot
Hello friends.  I have a little of this and that to share with you today.  I have a new facebook cover I've made for you.  Free for personal use or sharing.  Hope you enjoy it.  If you don't have facebook, the graphic can be used in other ways.

Megan from Lilac & Lavender is a digital artist who offers beautiful freebies on her blog. She recently used one of my graphics to make some freebies for you. One of them is shown below.   You can click on the picture below for more freebies like this one.  You'll love what you find.  Thanks Megan, these are a beauty. 

Compliments of Megan from Lilac & Lavender

My friend Mary has four little ones who have been quite ill with asthma, respiratory illness, and RSV.  In particular her infant Micah is very ill at this time with RSV.  Please pray for this little baby, his sisters, mom Mary, and this whole household.  Your prayers are greatly appreciated. 

If you're interested in my sprained ankle update you can read below, if not you can skip past the pictures and on to the next paragraph.  For those who don't know, I took a bad fall last week on the ice an sprained my ankle.  I'm still unable to bear weight without the air boot/cast but I can see some progress being made each day.    You can read more about it here:  Thanks for the Blessings I worked it into a Scripture Thursday Devotion.  Here's a couple of pictures from my week.

I had an incident recently where one of my personal family photos was pinned.  The person who had pinned it wasn't responding to my messages.  I was able to have it removed by Pinterest.  I quickly learned how to protect those photos I didn't want pinned, by inserting a simple HTML code the photo.  Please take my advice and put the code in at the time you insert the picture, otherwise you'll be looking through code for a long time trying to figure out where the picture is.   If interested in a brief tutorial on how to do this, click on the image in this paragraph, or click **here**.

That's all for now, I'll close with a few vintage Easter postcards from my collection.  You can click on each image for the largest size, right click and save to your computer.
