Hard to believe that it was only weeks ago that I was here.

And I took this picture.

In case you're wondering, it's called a geodesic sphere. At night it's both grand and beautiful.

I was mesmerized by the beauty, variety and saturation of the reflected color. Then I wondered how well I reflect my Savior's Light. Surely the light of the gospel outshines this sphere. Does Christ appear marred and dull when bounced off my selfish flesh or do I submit my life and will to Him, allowing the world a glimpse of His glory?

It really made me think.

Geodesic spheres always do that to me.

Coffee, anyone?

Every once in a while I get bit by a bug.

Once bitten, I must create something. Anything. I must find a worthy project and attack it until it is complete. Or at least until something else catches my fancy.

Strange, I know. Anyhow, my most recent welt found me enthralled with the Nester's beautiful coffee filter wreath. Not only does she know how to create, but she also displays her finds and creations beautifully.

I then had to make a wreath. I gathered my supplies, one being my nemesis the glue gun, and got to work.

Several blisters and a host of coffee filters later, voila!

I gave it to my dear friend, Megan for Christmas. Then I made sure I had supplies to make another one for myself. Now if I could get around using the glue gun all would be well.

It's not difficult, just time-consuming. Go ahead, give it a try. I'm sure you won't burn yourself as much as I did.

P.S. No coffee was consumed in making this project.
