Welcome to my small spot in the universe.
Through pictures and a few words, I hope to communicate to others the blessings we receive, even in the smallest every day things around us.
God is good!

Cards and Sunflowers

A sunflower card.
Made from a paper napkin.

Sunflowers from Summer's garden.
No matter if they are printed on paper, or real...
Sunflowers are special.  
They bring joy to the beholder!
Have a blessed day!

Red roses for you.
Happy Valentine's Day!

Winter Beauty

The sun is shining on the bare branches of the tree across the road.
Against our beautiful Carolina blue sky.
The Lord sends beauty to His creation, even on these cold winter days.

Blessing Jar

Decorative painting is the best hobby I have ever had.
 It blesses my soul.
When life gets hard, it seems I can pick up my brush, and for a short while,
 go to Another Place.
Where things are so much better!
This is an old Ball canning jar., with pink roses.
It has a slot in the lid to write down blessings when they occur, and one day when we are feeling low, get them out and read them again.
And realize that God never leaves us alone.

Wishing for all a blessed day...filled with sunshine, blessings, and beautiful roses!
