In 2008, I made a trip to Tanzania. While I was there, I met a Great Man of God, who devoted his life to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone he met. He was in need of a building and I promised to do what I could to help. Knitting for Tanzania is my attempt to help him build a church building. All profits from sales of my knits go directly to help with his building project.

Last week I found $100.00 that Stan had given me for Christmas and I had tucked it away and forgotten about it until I was organizing a drawer. $100.00 later, most of my pots are planted. I have enough flowers to do one or two more pots but now it is raining so I will have to wait for the sun to return once more.
Since we have a postage stamp yard, most of my flower gardening is done in pots and I usually have about 30 interspersed throughout my yard and hanging from my fence. I think so far I have 12 done. One real treat was when I found the two pots of fuchsia I had left out all winter had survived. My wisteria is fat with buds and my favorite azalea is nearing bloom. Yes, I definitely love Spring and its promise of new and continuing life.

These are some pictures I took when Stan and I went to San Diego last month. I though I had posted them, but I was wrong:(
I shot this one directly into the sun on purpose. I wanted to silhouette the woman as she walked down the beach.
As I sat on the beach looking to the west, waiting for the sun to dip down below the horizon, I looked behind me on the hill. I saw this Palm tree with the moon directly above it.
I am thinking waiting for the sun to set, was well worth it.
