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!!!

"He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said... Come see the place where he was lying..."  It is all written in

Matthew Chapter 28.  The children and I made a Grace Garden in a wide planter.... they picked plants, and gathered some stones for a path plus larger stones for the tomb where Jesus was laid after the Crucifixion. It also had a larger stone over the entrance which was then rolled away.... then the empty tomb with just the cloth ..... because He has RISEN!!  The children loved making this instead of all the Easter Egg stuff....it was so much more meaningful to them and they went to look at it everyday this week.... waiting.... Sorry my pictures aren't better, but it was dark when we took these....enjoy and have a BLESSED SUNDAY!!

Hey Lady...loved your last two posts .... I laid in bed last night thinking about the Gosnell Clinic ...the blood, then the Boston Marathon....the blood, then Christ on the cross for US...the blood He shed, which over shadows it all and can cover us in forgiveness and Salvation for eternity....your posts always keep me thinking..... thank you so much...we'll be in touch!! HUGS!!
