The good news, though, my car is safely home again from the shop--hallelujah! She's thirteen years old, my little Kia, and I was worried her transmission was trying to quit on us. Turned out to be a brake rotor catching--all fixed and they even flushed and refilled the tranny fluid for us, just to be on the safe side, and less than $125 later--she's good as new!! How sweet is that?? I love my car. I love seeing it parked out front in the driveway even more. Yay!!
So I finished the week's Zendala Dare yesterday. Not sure if I really like it or not...If I look quick, I do like it, but if I look too long, it causes the eye to struggle between the delicateness of Paradox against the stronger, bold graphic patterns of the circles, and it feels harsh to me:
Then, the Diva's Challenge this week is String Theory, using String 3, and I'll be honest-I'm cheating here...I'm just not feeling the strings lately. I'm much happier letting things develop more freestyle. Though, I do have a 'thought' for an answer to this challenge, I did this one a couple months back using String 3 and figured I'd share it just in case I don't get to work on the idea that's floating round in my head...I started something in my Tangle a Day calendar that I don't want to rush, so I may not get to the string thing in time for the cut off...

And the morning's prayer:
In everything you do today, may your spirit be one of eager expectation and patient trust.
Eagerly expect your Father to return any minute, but patiently trust Him to do what is right.
“Our homeland is in heaven, and we are waiting for our Savior,
the Lord Jesus Christ, to come from heaven.”
