and night and day after day...

Recently I was whining and complaining about all I have to deal with and asking the Lord why and why mom was being tormented in her last years and today it hit hard that our situation could be so much worse. after receiving a few prayer requests of people with serious problems that would require troubling therapy or surgery and may still lead to a painful death that could torment the person and family for days, weeks, months or longer...well, needless to say I felt pretty bad for whining about my own situation. I quickly asked God to forgive me and let me reboot.

beautiful day for help

my mind

with the world's problems:
hunger, crime, health, terrorism, disease, and so on,
I am often in a confused state of which way to turn or what to do but

Book Covers and such

I like sharing a cover from time to time. Often it is simply a mixture of what's laying around on my work space, leftovers from other work, new items and what's on my mind.
Like any other book, the cover never tells the whole story but it gives a glimpse at what's going on in its pages. My journals are sometimes image first and sometimes words and sometimes neither but they are always therapy. They give me a bit of respite at times from life's hectic times but also give me a place to let off steam, fears and worries. I need to work more on doing praise pages for all the blessings in my life. I keep a regular journal as well as a gratitude journal and much praise is found there.
Keep arting, journaling and discovering what inspires you and sparks your creativity.

a new design obsession

when you do something for a friend (copy work) you sometimes get inspired to push the design to see what you can do....this was fun!

sometimes we limit our living

we live between the lines forgetting the purpose of the lines that give us direction we may need to follow for reason of learning, fun or discovery. this piece is left over painting edges cut into interesting strips, lines drawn between and message on the lines. don't, no, never limit your possibilities.
