But godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment.  For we have brought nothing into the world, so we cannot take anything out of it either. 
 I Timothy 6:5-7

This post on Ten Reasons for Contentment is so rich.  Read the comments, too - they are also rich.

While I am working on a real post...

...I want to share a link.  I have a beautimous* picture as wallpaper on my desktop, shared from a blog of someone 'way more artistic and creative than I, and generous, too!  I love having the little handdrawn calendar in the corner.  Can I stand to let it go next week to switch to her November desktop?  For some reason, I cannot link to single posts on her blog.  The October 17 and 18 posts are the ones, but her whole blog delights me.  Check it out!

* Yes, beautimous is a real word.  My Daddy said so.

Going on more Picniks

Are you tired of reading about picnik yet?  

Yes, I know picnic is spelled without that "k," but our picnics are Picniks!  I love using picnik to edit pictures. 

Now Earthgirl is using Picnik, too.  She edited many of her own birthday party pictures, and had a ball.

Ideas for using Picnik in the classroom.

Happy Friday! offers a load of business and personal printables, from timesheets and invoices to family trees and recipe cards, to mazes and play money. I wish I had seen this printable Western Bookmark last summer during our Western theme Vacation Bible School.  The paper section alone is just cool -  music paper, penmanship paper, knitting graph paper, Yahtzee scorecards...  Did you know there was polar graph paper?

I have noted this graph paper generator before.   Stop me before I start generating graph paper again!

Do you have a source for cool printables?
