Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. ~ 1 Peter 4:10

Rainy Day Musings

It is a cold, rainy day here in north Texas. I'm enjoying it, even though I'm missing the beautiful 80 degree weather we've had the last several days. I don't know what it is about the rain, but it makes me want to cozy up inside, get some things done around the house and be creative! Perfect for sipping Hot Chocolate as well...one of my faves! :) Next week is Spring Break and I do hope we are back to spring-like weather again by then.

I'm still sorting through "stuff" in my new studio area. I can't wait until I finish organizing. Most everything is put away; it is little odds and ends that I need to find homes for or just get rid of. I'm trying to purge a lot...simplify!!! I also have a lot of "memorabilia" from years past up until now that I need to sort through and find a better way to organize and store. Someday I hope to include most of it in my scrapbooks, but it is too much to think that will happen anytime soon. It will definitely be a process! Anyway, I can't wait to take pics when I'm all finished. What a big job it has been, but so totally worth it.

Here are two newly finished pieces. They are both on 8" x 8" canvas, mixed media with collage, acrylic paint, and painting crayons.

This is "My Strength", inspired by Psalm 43:2, that no matter what we face God is there for us to cling to.
This is "Waiting in Hope", reminding us that even though we sometimes have to wait on God, He is always there supporting us through everything.
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Thanks so much for stopping by!! :)

Hi! I stumbled onto your blog from Faith Folk, and I realized we live in the same area. I'm in Garland (Dallas). I love your art!

Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog! It's such a great feeling when we can make even a little difference. Like Emily Dickinson said, "If I can stop one heart from breaking...I shall not live in vain." It seems like we have a lot in common. I think I'll have to keep stopping by your blog. :)
