More Bravery

Well, here are 2 more watercolors. The view from the window still needs some brightening up outside, but I still wanted to post it.

I can't tell you just how much better I feel these days since I've been taking care of me! I could paint all day!!! When I drive down the road, I am looking at scenery, buildings so much differently--ummm...that would be fun to paint :-)!!

Thank all of you for your prayers as I know that THEY are the real reason I was even able to begin to put attention onto myself!! You are all the best!!

In The Secret Place

"You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother's womb. Thank You for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous--and how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formedd in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. Ps 139: 13-15 (NLT).
We were in awe as we looked into what was once "utter seclusion" and saw the beautiful face of our granddaughter! This is the new 3D ultrasound. The video that was taken is in 4D.
We were amazed to see the detail of her face and parts of her body in such detail. Look forward (I hope) to a You Tube link to see the video :-).
This is either Shayla or Kyla and she is 29 wks in these pictures--due Oct 8!!!!! 10 weeks to go.

Being Brave

Well, I am doing something that I normally wouldn't do--but I am determined to regain the braveness that the past 10 years have sucked out of me. July has been full of things that I have been doing just for me--like taking a digital scrapbooking class, a beginning watercolor class, attending 2 multi day women's conferences and enrolling in Massage Envy and in Healthy Now (personal trainer, nutritionist & gym) not to mention spending a week with my precious granddaughter & daughter, X, & Fran, a very special friend! I am beginning to feel the life, joy, excitement and bravery returning to my soul.

I am posting my first watercolor from class. The edges are blurry because the original is too big for the scanner but look past that. This is a place that, Lord willing, I will visit one day. It is a farm in Tuscany! If anyone would like to contribute to this dream--I'm not proud :-)
