Today I am joining the ladies over at studio JRU
sharing whats been going on in my studio.
(oh how I look forward to sharing on Friday!)
Since we live in NW Florida
Fall hasnt arrived in full force yet.
This morning I did wake to the sound of birds singing -
husband opened the windows. A new cool front.
Tuesday mornings I attend a Bible study,
We are reading "One thousand gifts" by Ann Voskamp.
We left with a project-
find God around us and photograph it.
A vine of heart shaped leaves bright yellow hanging down with a background of green.
It made me think of the many flowers and vines with heart shaped leaves......
Like God visibly showing us love through nature.
My artist eyes and heart sang with the thought of it!
We have two kinds of wild vines in our area with heart-shaped leaves,
then you add Scuppernog vines,
morning glories, moonflowers.
I saw them all day as we ran errands.
"God Valentines" all day.
I am knitting a prayer shawl.
Filled with love and prayers
to wrap around a dear lady going through a hard time.
It has falling leaves in the lacework.
And Ive been painting on these.
I was thrifting last weekend and stumbled on these SOLID
round back windsor chairs.
A little elbow grease, primer/paint-all in one
6 chairs for $50$15 in paint and sandpaper-Not bad.
(I also bought a $5 rocking chair for little G that needs the same treatment!)
Since I am also blogging about Down Syndrome Awareness this month,
Id like to add a thought,
My parents were so concerned that adding a little one
with that extra chromosome
would change our lifestyle, for the worst.
I can assure you,
I am just as busy now with the things that I love, enjoy
as I was before lil G, maybe even more-so
because I am so thrilled at seeing how love
really can make a difference.
I can make a difference!
If you have time and havent read it yet,
take a peek at yesterdays post.
if you still have some time
Go take a peek at "whats in my studio"
if youd like to see some creative hearts at work.
Praying God sends you plenty of valentines this weekend...
Under His wings,
