At the Feast of Belshazzar and a thousand of his lords,
While they drank from golden vessels, as the Book of Truth records,
In the night as they reveled in the royal palace hall,
They were seized with consternation-'twas the Hand upon the wall!

See the brave captive, Daniel, as he stood before the throng,
And rebuked the haughty monarch for his might deeds of wrong;
As he read out the writing-'twas the doom of one and all,
For the kingdom now was finished-said the Hand upon the wall!

See the faith, zeal and courage, that would dare to do the right,
Which the spirit gave to Daniel-this the secret of his might;
In his home in Judea, or a captive in the hall,
He understood the writing of his God upon the wall!

So our deeds are recorded-there's a Hand that's writing now:
Sinner, give your heart to Jesus, to His royal mandates bow;
For the day is approaching-it must come to one and all,
When the sinner's condemnation will be written on the wall!

'Tis the Hand of God on the wall! 'Tis the Hand of God on the wall!
Shall the record be "Found santing1" or shall it be "found trusting"
While the Hand is writing on the wall?

Free Form Watch Band

A while back Seti and I use to sit in her shop and bead together once a week. Oh what a lovely time we had. I learned so much from her. This watch band is free form peyote stitch I believe. All I know I had a blast making up this watch band.

This day we celebrate Memorial Day
let us all keep in mind the men and ladies who serve this country not be forgotten.
May they always be in our thoughts n prayers.
May God Bliss the USA

There's a graveyard near the White House
Where the Unknown Soldier lies,
And the flowers there are sprinkled
With the tears from mother's eyes.

I stood there not so long ago
With roses for the brave,
And suddenly I heard a voice
Speak from out the grave:

"I am the Unknown Soldier,"
The spirit voice began,
"And I think I have the right
To ask some questions man to man.

"Are my buddies taken care of?
Was their victory so sweet?
Is that big reward you offered
Selling pencils on the street?

"Did they really win the freedom
They battled to achieve?
Do you still respect that Croix de Guerre
Above that empty sleeve?

"Does a gold star in the window
Now mean anything at all?
I wonder how my old girl feels
When she hears a bugle call.

"And that baby who sang
'Hello, Central, give me no man's land'-
Can they replace her daddy
With a military band?

"I wonder if the profiteers
Have satisfied their greed?
I wonder if a soldier's mother
Ever is in need?

"I wonder if the kings, who planned it all
Are really satisfied?
They played their game of checkers
And eleven million died.

"I am the Unknown Soldier
And maybe I died in vain,
But if I were alive and my country called,
I'd do it all over again."
Billy Rose

This Poem is special to me and so true.
I pray that our Leaders of this Great Nation the USA
take into consideration the lives it cost on the decision
they make on behalf of the USA interest.

I am so thankful that we have men and ladies when call to duty
go and serve this great country of ours.

If it wasn't for these individuals we would not have the freedom we have today!
Thank you!


Baby Clay Sculpture

Can you imagine being so tiny. Well these chubby fingers of mine had a heck of a time sculpting this precious little bundle. I finally got smart starting using some tools that I bought and design myself. Boy are sculpting tools pricey. This was actually an online class a few years back that I took. I like taking online classes when I'm learning a new technique this way I can ask questions.

Side View look at those ears oh so tiny

Back View oh so precious!

Another side view of this precious clay baby.

If you have not tried your hand in sculpting I encourage you to do so. I was amaze at my first turn out I plan to keep sculpting and doing my own thing.
