My dad took this picture in 1965 on a visit to his sister Dorothy's home in Erie, Pennsylvania
That's my brother Doug giving me a smooch!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DOUG!!! xo xo
Happy Mother's Day in heaven, Mom!
Doug, please give Mom a BIG HUG for me!! :-)
After Evan's recent fall on the ice, Mac's bedside manner is just what the doctor ordered.
Nothing better than a little black bunny to help with Evan's knee recovery!
When I was working for a ministry, making a very low income in the early 1990s, my brother Doug stepped in as an art benefactor, offering me hundreds of dollars to buy art supplies to continue painting in my free time. Extremely generous and kind-hearted, don't you think?? I took him up on his offer, and asked him what I could paint for him. He said, “Something blue for my living room.” I came up with an angular pastel blues combo using fabric paints-- it was a disaster that neither of us liked, lol. I didn't know what else to do, and this blue painting was forgotten... Doug passed away in 2012, but his birthday was yesterday, June 26. He would have been 57. I made this with Doug in mind. “Blue Fire for Doug”. Have you ever created something with a loved one in mind?

Took a photo of Mom from her Fredonia State Teachers College Graduation in 1960 and gave it paintinerly effect! My father took this photo of Mom before they were married. Dad was 26, Mom 21.
Easter 1964, Mom with my two brothers and me in her belly. :-) This is how I picture Mom in heaven now-- beautiful, laughing, and free! As I was baking yesterday and coloring Easter eggs (things we did together) I pictured Mom baking with Maxine, Evan's mom, who he describes as a "queen of desserts", LOL. Sounds heavenly!
Blessed Passover and Happy Resurrection Sunday!
Our pastor shared President Trump's proclamation during this morning's service. I say, "AMEN!"
Praying you and your family experience God's supernatural grace, peace, protection, and health during this difficult time
I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence.
In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration;
but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]!
For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and
have conquered it for you.] John 16:33 AMPC
