About Me

I love creating art. I love the Creator! And through that love, I find a little slice of heaven on earth and I give Him all the glory! It's a great adventure and I'm excited to see what's around the bend! Come join me, won't you?

I picked sunflowers this weekend... and it was worth the sneezing and blowing nose a mild allergy reaction caused me in doing so!  I put the fresh-picked sunflowers on our patio table, and this little silk and couched tablerunner underneath.  Love the color-combo.  Big surprise, huh. 
 The sunflowers remind me of a song we love to sing in our Women's Tres Dias Weekends.  "Shine, Jesus, Shine."

"Lord, the light of your Love is shining, 
In the midst of the darkness shining,
Jesus, Light of the world shine upon us,
Set us free by the truth You now bring us,
Shine on me, shine on me."

"As we gaze at your kingly brightness,
So our faces display Your likeness.
Ever changing from glory to glory,
Mirrored here, may our lives tell your story,
shine on me, shine on me."

John 8:12 "I am the Light of the World."

I'm grateful to all of you out there in blog land.  
Thank you for reading my blog!  
Have a great week!
And... SHINE!

In the last few years, I have learned how important it is to tell people how much we value them..NOW, not later....and it's been on my mind this morning. Reading your sign off just reinforces me stream of thought this morning. Best wishes to you this morning, too.

Oh Leslie the sunflowers are just beautiful, your new camera is just wonderful. I agree with Lori only God could make something that pretty.
Have a great day !

Ooh how nice!
BTW, since you mentioned allergies, you can get seeds for pollen-free sunflowers now. No pollen in yer nose or on the tableclothes... Though the way God made them is pretty hard to top!

I'm working on a sunflower quilt right now. I've got some sunflowers planted just outside my sewing room window. You should see all the birds on them right now. It's a wonder I get any sewing done with all the beauty outside the window. And I went to the yarn shop to get some pretties for more FM couching!
