Your future is illuminated by
Your loving hands

I look past dust all the time because this is an old house and I could dust twice a day with it still returning. Perhaps if I dust with more love?

This is wonderful.

Love the pics on your cover strip!

Dust allows light to "show off"...and light counts each single little mite.

I wonder if flying dusts ever run into one another (before they settle somewhere, that is...)

I LOVE short, write lonnng..
