Praying Hands

Just wanted to share a recent drawing that I did. Believe it or not, I drew this upside down. I find it quite puzzling that I can do this type of work just by turning the photo and my sketchbook upside down, but I can't do it the "normal" way. Oh well, whatever works.

Handmade Journals

First I want to thank everyone for the prayers given for my mother-in-law.  She is back at the nursing home and beginning her rehab.

Friday was my birthday and I spent the day with my daughter.  She gave me about 2 weeks to decide what I wanted to do.  It was a toss up between the Frist Center which is an Art Museum in Nashville or the Quilt Museum in Paducah Ky.  I chose Paducah.  First stop was the museum.  They had a fabulous exhibit and I was in awe of the beautiful work that was displayed.

We had lunch at a great restaurant and then strolled the streets going in and out of the speciality shops.  I found 2 wonderful handmade journals with handmade papers.  It was the best day ever.

Prayers Again

On July 14th I wrote a post asking for prayers for my mother in law.  Well, I'm here again asking for more prayers.  She had a partial foot amputation and we have been going for treatments since.  Unfortunately she is not healing and she is having a below the knee amputation today.  We are praying that this one will heal and she will regain her strength.  Thank you for remembering her.  Have a blessed day.
