Look for the Masterpiece

Have you ever noticed the variety of colors combined to form a thing of beauty? A rainbow, a stained glass window, a bouquet, a garden of spring flowers, the mountains in the fall, a sunrise, a sunset, a mixed fruit salad, even a roll of life savers. My mother had a collection of stained glass.… Continue reading Look for the Masterpiece
