As I have shared in the past I often struggle with whether a painting or sketch is finished.

Wouldn't it be nice to know for certain?

This peach tree knows it is not finished until it bears fruit.

As far as my brother is concerned this chocolate cake is finished :)!

To my eye this small painting is finished.    There is nothing more I want to say.

 Not so certain about this one.  Perhaps I will set it aside and think on it a bit.

As for the little sparrow it seems to always know when the bird seed is finished and it is time to go.

Upon that thought I will say this week's post is finished and it is time for me to go also.

Hope each of you have a wonderful week.



"Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array.   By the seventh day God had finished  the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work."
Genesis 2:1-2 (NIV)

I went looking for spring yesterday.

This is what I found.

Forsythia starting to flower...

Daffodils and blue squill blooming

Virginia blue bells showing color...

someone singing a sweet tune

and lastly two friends basking in warm sunshine.

May each of you find some spring today.

God Bless

April is here!

Page from Sketchbook

Yes friends April is here!

It brought us a special gift the day after Easter.

We awoke to a lovely snowfall.

Every shrub and limb was covered.

By noon it was beginning to melt and at
4:00 P.M.  it was gone.  It was as if
it had never happened.

So yes April has arrived - she may be teasing us but she is here!

Hope everyone has a wonderful week.   BTW - this post is early - we are celebrating my Mom's birthday tomorrow.  She will be 80.

"Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.  
Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate."  Prov. 31:30-31 (NIV)

Lovely Day

It was a lovely day.   In spite of the cold wind these pussy willows bravely reached upward...

the moon peeked out in the afternoon

and the bright sunshine cast our shadows.

Hope everyone enjoyed a lovely day.    Have a blessed Holy Week!

"While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples saying, "Take and eat; this is my body."    Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying "Drink from it, all of you.   This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins."   Matt. 26: 26-28 (NIV)

Blue skies promise hope.  They lift our spirits and whisper the promise of better days ahead.

Patches of winter may linger but spring is just around the corner.

These little sweeties know it...

so does the crocus...

and snowdrop!

Take heart friends - spring is certainly on its way. 

Keep "looking up" hope will not disappoint!

"Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see."   Hebrews 11:1 (NIV)

p.s.  Thank you all your thoughts and prayers while my mother was in the hospital.   She is home and getting stronger each day.  You are all such a blessing to me.   May the God of  all hope fill each of your hearts with joy this coming week.

Hugs Debbie

Dear Friends I will be missing in action for a mom is having surgery on Monday.
Praying she will be well soon.

It may be a while before I visit you.    God willing it will not be too long.

Take care and have a blessed week.

Hugs Debbie
