Happy Heart Day

Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Love does not demand it's own way. Love is not irritable, and keeps no record of when it has been wronged. It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out.

Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful and endures through every circumstance.

There are three things that will endure - faith, hope, and love - and the greatest of these is love.

Have you ever been to my house?
I have this funky glass-topped twig table in my front entrance. Four to five times a year I change the look of it, depending on the season.

Currently tis the season of love:

I thought I'd share what I learnt on Friday night, using valentine images... These first two photos were taken using the automatic setting and a flash. No thinking required.

Then I switched over to the creative mode and took a photo, (below) not checking to see what the white balance setting was. Turns out it was still on "bright sunlight" from Saturday's shoot at the farm.

And finally, acknowledging that the lighting in my front entry is tungsten, I switched the setting and voila ...

In keeping with the love theme I've got going here today, I plan on finishing up book # 34 tonight:

I googled the title, hoping to download the image from the 'net, but apparently it's not all that well-known a book. So Max is modeling it for me. I picked it up last week, with the intention of giving it to Rachel the next time I see her. But after I read three of the chapters at random I got hooked and now I'm reading it cover to cover.
It's a collection of twenty six true stories from Candian writers - each one honest, personal and moving. I heart this book. (It's available from Costco, if you're interested.)
Three things I'm thankful for:
1. Drew helped me wash my truck late this afternoon.
2. When I came into the house, Max asked, "Can I help you make supper?"
3. I'm thankful for the methodical way Clint troubleshoots. When I told him the speakers on my computer weren't working, he considered all the possibilities then one at a time, ruled out the obvious ones and disovered the problem. Then fixed it.
Peace and love to you this day,
