A day filled with smiles and whimsy, bright colors and happiness and beauty!   When I sit back and think of God's gift in giving us the ability to create... it makes me smile.  Our verse for today was Matthew 5:14... " You are here to be light, bringing out the God colors in this world."

And that is exactly what these girls did... they brought out the God colors in this world... and it was....

beautiful!  More God -colors to come tomorrow!  See you then!
