God's handiwork is all around us. I like to think of God as the Master Artist and the sky as His canvas. While the beauty of God's creation -- an awesome sunset, an unusual cloud formation, a pretty rainbow - can be captured by a painting or photograph, many of God's blessings, such as a cool breeze in summer or the sound of children's laughter, can only be shared by words. I've tried to capture moments in time and put them together in a "story scrapbook." Daddy was a great story teller (at least I thought so), and I'm sure that his stories influenced me to want to share my own. And since Mama's scrumptious fried apple pies are legendary with our family, the title "Apple Pie Memories - Stories to Share" just seemed to fit.
