First, a book that I love and have read many times:
It's funny, but this book (as well as a guest speaker at church one day) influenced me to do foster care. It got me thinking about creating a loving, wholesome home for whoever needed it. Fast-forward 5 years and I now have two beautiful adopted daughters as a result of that first little thought in my brain. Interesting how God works sometimes.
Next, one of my favorite places in the world, and one of my favorite hobbies all rolled into one watercolor painting:
The Beach and Painting. I painted this from a photo I took at the Washington Coast. I don't get to the beach often, but I'm just filled with the majesty of God every time I do get there. I love the weathered driftwood and all the shadows on the sand.
Finally, for my whimsical side, this vase I painted at a pottery shop:
O.k, if you are interested in the giveaway, just leave a comment. I'll draw a name Sunday night and post the winner.
Even if you don't want this random set of objects, I hope you'll leave a comment to help me celebrate. I'm hoping to meet some readers that don't make it a habit to comment, but are still out there somewhere.
Thanks for stopping by, and here's to another year!
