I'm feeling so blessed cuz God has given be the love of so many things, and expressing myself in my paintings is one. Sometimes satan gets hold of us when we are feeling down because of so many reasons, me it pain....but we have the Armor of God's word to keep us out of satan's grasp, right? That's why I feel so blessed!! Going to sleep with HIM on my mind, and waking to thanking HIM for another day, and praying with thanksgiving throughout the day keeps my mind and heart on my Heavenly Father! How could I not feel blessed, do you feel that way?
Now I want to share a couple new painting I've done recently...painting old barns gives me such joy...I think in the future I'm going to take photos of local barns and old houses and do research on them to share after finishing the paintings.......

How about you all, have you had snow yet? I've been painting some and making some darling little Christmas Angel earrings to give at Church...actually will list some in my Etsy shop as well for just $3.00 a pair.
Wishing everyone a wonderful day and a blessed week...for those in the way of this next storm, I pray you will be save and kept warm!!!

I did very well selling not only jewelry, but some paintings and knitted scarves. I just want to say, Prayer is so Powerful....for the past 3 wks things have been almost to a stand still at my hubby's shop, but God does always provide for our needs...I made enough to get our groceries for the week...Praise be to God...
Here are a couple photos of the sale...
This young girl is awesome, and her love for God is most important to her!!!

I have many scriptures from the Bible I love, but the one my friend, Nancy Williamson from "Footprints from the Potter's Home" My sweet sister, Mary went to one of their awesome retreats several years ago...and at the end we all sat around the big bondfire after the sun went down...what an awesome feeling came over me that night...I could feel God's presence and knew these girls were being used my HIM. I was given a scripture from them that I really needed...because of things in my past it really spoke to my heart...made me realize that the past must be delt with then left there..in the past...oh we never forget, but we need to put those "bad" feelings about ourselves behind us to leave room for all the things God has for us in the future...I totally believe I have and am so very thankful~~~ this scripture I've shared before, but am going to do so again...for it's as much a part of me as the Lord's Prayer!! This was on my lips as I was put to sleep for my surgery....and I woke with them in my Heart!!!
Peace I leave with you,
my peace I give unto you:
not as the world giveth,
give I unto you.
Let not your heart be troubled,
neither let it be afraid.
this is for everyone who believes Jesus died on the Cross at Calvary for all our Sins. Putting all that is written in the Bible into practice in your lives as you try to be more like HIM....one day our Lord will come again and I honestly pray it's in my time...what a glorious sighting that would be...I pray that those who have heard the truth, but haven't accepted HIM as their Lord and Saviour make that decision now, accept that free gift!
Look what an awesome place for a Retreat!!!

A little about me!
Am married to a great guy and we've raised 5 of his and my children...they have blessed us with 14 grandchildren. My passion is creating all forms of art, and handmade jewelry. On the side I still make some bouquets for weddings and enjoy playing with our 3 pugs. Living in the mountains gives us such a sense of freedom as we are on 5 acres filled with tall old trees surrounding our little home...we have all kinds of wildlife visiting us daily!!!
