New Art Surprise Blessing

To my enormous pleasure, Polk Museum of Art now offers free admission to everyone all the time. Super excited as the museum is across from the library we frequent. And we are super excited to have access without yet another financial drain. Praise God for such blessings! We will go often and I will get back to my oil painting I have missed so much. Yay!!!!❤

Poetry

Poetry warms your mind by the fire.

It is words transformed into art.

And tickling the mind with thoughts so profound

Is just as important as words bright and round.

And the sun seems to tickle the pen as one writes

Poetry meaning so much or so light,

And dancing on tables is paper and pen

And words of expression or meaning or friend.

And keeping one company, poetry does

So keep poems coming and continue art, love.❤

Reading Minds

As I read, I glimpse the mind of the author. I see their heart, read their mind, know a little of their innerness. Writing is an artistic expression of who we are and only really good artist writers can convey their story as they convey another. It is fantastic and I confess reading is one of my greatest joys. And the Bible is my favorite book because the Author/God tells His whole story through many other authors at various times in history and assembled it and thus revealed His mind and will and heart, so epic. This is my favorite way to get to know artistic person, no matter who they are or what their story. Everyone has a lesson to share, a beautiful mind to read. Bliss!❤

Despite Opposition 

Despite opposition, we walk on.

Despite opposition, we pray.

Despite opposition, we prolong

The life given to us by grace.

Despite opposition, we muster faith,

We fight on our knees with head bowed.

Despite opposition, we press on

Focused and awaiting a crown.

Despite opposition, with head held high

We know we are stronger than they

Who oppose and divide, the takers of life

And we know God is still the most great.

Quilt is Finished

Here is our finished family heirloom quilt. I finished the last hand-stitch during my technology fast and had to wait to tell you. This quilt means much to me personally because it is our story and every stitch was made by hand with love. The center is the story of Jesus Christ, and He is the center of my life. So I am covered by Christ symbolically as I am covered by Him spiritually. I have slept like a baby and it makes me happy to look at. Praise God! ❤ ❤ ❤
