EXCITING CHANGES TO COME!!!

Dick and I have made some big changes for the year to come!! We are downsizing to free us up to do the things we have always wanted to do ..... that is.... free to travel, spend more time together, follow His lead for new adventures, no more retail store after 27 years, more time with kids, but still MORE ART and probably some sewing classes for girls ..... that is a dream right now ..... but the ART won't stop, it will be here on the blog as soon as we finish remodeling our NEW/OLD smaller home about 20 miles away. SO STAY TUNED ... we'll be having a big sale and beautiful house and property SALE in the SUMMER!! MORE FREEDOM ON IT'S WAY!!! WooHoo!!! And THANKS for all your support the last twenty seven years in my shop!!!

SEEK MY FACE...

It has been so hot outside and the drought is something we can't control. We humans are so used to controlling every aspect of our lives that we can ... but there are some things we can't control. I found this scripture while doodling and drawing old fabric scraps and watching the children play BLISSFULLY with no worries. "Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose trust is the Lord. For he will be like a tree planted by the water, that extends it's roots by a stream and will not fear when the heat comes; but it's leaves will be green, and it will not be anxious in a year of drought, nor cease to yield fruit." Jeremiah 17:7,8. I just thought it was something to give us thoughts of the HOPE if we SEEK HIS FACE....a quote in my devotional on the 6th. I hope you have a BLESSED day and REST in HIS ARMS of CARE. ......and I hope you get to paint !!!

Love the color combination in this artwork.

I'm finding that to trust Him I am having to do a battle in my mind against worry; to replace those negative thoughts with positive self-talk and remembering what He has done for me in the past. He is so worthy of our trust.

That is such a beautiful scripture He gave you, and so appropriate for your season there.

sherry,
Good evening, friend. After reading your post, I was reminded of an old gospel song we used to sing as kids or maybe when my kids were kids :) haha who knows. Funny thing, my spirit has been trying to recall it - off and on for weeks. All I could remember was the chorus.

tonight, I goggled it til I found it. I wanted to share it with you. Maybe you've heard it. Maybe not.

Johnny Cash sang it . - so did Elvis. If you haven't heard it - you can listen on Youtube. It'll be going through my head for days now :)

Thanks for the nudge. Bless you. Have you seen any of your mocking bird babys flying around?

Hugs,
Patrina <")>><

"I shall not be moved" by Larry Stallings

Jesus is my Savior, I shall not be moved;

In His love and favor, I shall not be moved,

Just like a tree that's planted by the waters,

Lord, I shall not be moved.

In my Christ abiding, I shall not be moved;

In His love I'm hiding, I shall not be moved,

Just like a tree that's planted by the waters,

Lord, I shall not be moved.

If I trust Him ever, I shall not be moved;

He will fail me never, I shall not be moved,

Just like a tree that's planted by the waters,

Lord, I shall not be moved.

On His word I'm feeding, I shall not be moved;

He's the One that's leading, I shall not be moved,

Just like a tree that's planted by the waters,

Lord, I shall not be moved.

Chorus
I shall not be, I shall not be moved;
I shall not be, I shall not be moved;
Just like a tree that's planted by the waters,
Lord, I shall not be moved.
