Got Flowers? -Paint Party Friday

This is a drawing of my lovely middle daughter. She is as beautiful inside, as she is on the outside.   I love my children so dearly I often draw them from memory.  Such was the case here.

I haven't seen them in awhile and I miss them something fierce.  I have such wonderful children...A blessed Mom am I! :D

Happy Paint Party Friday dear ones!  Thank you for dropping by--your visits always bring a smile to my heart.

The Pit -Paint Party Friday

Because of lack of time this week, I am re-posting this drawing I created years ago.  This piece is a favorite and carries a lot of deep meaning for me, especially now because in this journey, I realize am just now emerging from the depths of depression. 

Corrie Ten Boom, survivor of the prison war camps of Nazi Germany wrote of her experiences in a book called The Hiding Place. She said, "There is no pit so deep that God is not deeper still."
The first time I read this amazing woman's book, I was profoundly moved. Confronting death, starvation, disease, and the worst kind of cruelty from her fellow human beings--in the face of absolute, abject hopelessness--Corrie Ten Boom's faith grew.
Remembering her wise words fills my heart with wonder and hope.

Thank you for dropping by, dear Friends.  Your visits make me smile--your comments are a delight to my heart.  Happy Paint Party Friday!

Star Baby Lullaby -Paint Party Friday

Before my niece was born over 11 years ago, I drew this picture as a shower gift for her Mom.  My sweet Sis still has it! 

I am posting the drawing today in honor of another niece, my sweet Melissa, who only a few minutes ago, gave birth to a beautiful little baby boy!

I am so proud of her!  I hope you are all having a wonderful day.  I know I am! 

Blessings and peace to all of you dear ones.  Thank you for dropping by--your visits are such a joy.  Happy Paint Party Friday!
