Change

I found myself wandering alone through Hallmark this weekend.  I found lots of things.  Things that were pretty.  Things that I wanted.  Things that were expensive.  I came away with a few clearance items for my girls and a new key chain.  But, something I saw that I did not get made an impact on me.  It was a little…

Consuming Fire

Interesting factoid from my glass class on Saturday.  The glass you see, even as you read this on your screen, is glass that is actually in its frozen state.  Think about it…that glass you are looking at, can you bend it, mold it or shape it?  Nope.  Nada.  Never.  In order to melt glass, it has to be heated to…
