Okay, a pound

On Thursday morning, I got a hankerin' for some chocolate covered pretzels. When I told the candy counter (she who counts the candy, not that which displays the candy) what I wanted, she asked me, "How much?" I stammered for a second... I mean... I'm not really that familiar with the pounds to pretzels ratio. Sensing my dilemma, she grabbed a bag and said, "This is a pound." Gratefully, I said, "Okay, I'll have a pound then." (Here's Mikey and Todd sharing in the spoils)

As I was paying, she felt to explain (or maybe I asked) why they carry pre-weighed bags of their stuff: Women's conference is coming up, and all the ladies feel like they have to have a pound of this chocolate and a pound of that... just to help the fudge go down.

So, I'm taking upon myself the assignment to photograph the candy counter during women's conference... last year it was a complete mess.

And here's a picture I took this last week. I feel like it needs some words written on it... what should it say?

The picture is beautiful. When I say it I thought, "surprise!"

LOVE the picture! There's something so hopeful about it.

It's interesting, because at first glance, I saw the picture and thought it was a picture of the fall. Then I realized that it was actually a picture of spring, and I wondered how much I think that I'm headed into a bleak winter when, in fact, spring has already arrived. Hope is powerful. Maybe we just hope for the flowers, no matter the season, and trust that we'll find them.

*done being all serious and philosophical. What has gotten into me?!?!?*

Another caption for you picture:

"For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: But the aword of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you."

1 Peter 1:25
