But then, the day before his party with some of his best buddies he got sick. He has a very bad cold, complete with runny nose, sore throat, fever and coughing. Yuck. And he’s been to see the doctor twice. He will miss at least 3 days of school. The birthday party has been rescheduled; thankfully everyone could still come.
Hoping to post more pictures of a healthy 9 year old with his friends eating cake soon!

That’s the name of my first “commissioned” piece of art. Well, not really. I am on my church’s worship committee and we are about to begin a study on deepening your relationship with God. During the planning, I had this idea for a canvas and my preachers said “Run with it!” So, here is it!
The text is just a college of words that represent our busy lives: meetings, brothers, money, job, bills, vacation, car, phone, parents, drink…. you get the idea. I typed them up in different type fonts and different sizes; some are cut and some are torn. They are on a background of red and black, distressed with a variety of stamps and stencils and markers. The plain canvas heart on the cross is Jesus who should be the center of our lives. This will be on display by the pulpit during both services this coming Sunday.
I’m really happy with how it turned out.
