PURPLE TODAY

I’d like to share again these wise words with anyone who is wrestling with where they find themselves today. These thoughts were shared by my friend Betsy, from the book, “The Red Sea Rules.” Here is a summary of what the author, Robert J. Morgan, wants to remind us during challenging times:
1) God means for us to be where we are.
2) Be more concerned for God’s glory than your relief.
3) Acknowledge the enemy but keep your focus on God.
4) Pray!
5) Stay calm and confident and let God do His work.
6) Take one day and one step at a time.
7) Look for God’s surrounding presence.
8 Trust God to deliver in His own unique way.
9) View your current crisis as a faith builder for the future.
10) Praise Him.

Jesus sent the disciples into the boat knowing that they would be caught in a severe storm. He intended that they would experience God’s glory AND His presence in and through this frightening experience . Yes, there is an enemy hard at work and his victory has been one of divisiveness in every direction. But if we keep our eyes focused on the Son. and pray – hard and often, I believe we will see He has neither forgotten nor abandoned us. He is close to the broken hearted. We can trust Him. He is faithful.

…praying for you~

My Most Recent Painting: “View of Iceland”

View of Iceland

I’ve never been to Iceland, but I felt this absolutely charming little village deserved some paintbrush time. I thought I’d share many of the options available with all of my paintings from the Gallery which links up with Fine Art America. If you click on the above link, you will have options to view any of these in person.

There are almost 300 paintings arranged in Collections and each painting is available as framed, canvas, metal, wood, acrylic, poster or tapestry prints; throw pillows, towels, blanket, duvet cover, or shower curtain; tote bag, pouch, yoga mat; cards, spiral notebook, coffee mugs, and MORE.

The paintings are arranged in Collections which include: CREATION, HOPE, ARIZONA DREAMING, CHERYL’S WATERCOLOR ART, CELEBRATING EUROPE, FURRY & FEATHERED FRIENDS, PEN & PAINTBRUSH, FLORAL FANTASIES, OCEAN BREEZES, and CHRISTMAS.

I plan to soon begin painting some of the wonderful views my husband and I saw in Breckenridge, Durango, Silverton, and Pagosa Springs, Colorado. Here is one of my husband’s incredible photographs which might show up as a painting in the future:

Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad!

Watercolor is a solitary endeavor. It captures memories and gives me something fulfilling with which to use my time. I do hope you will visit my website and do a little “time travel” among my watercolor creations. If you have a comment or question, please reach out to me.

In spite of the mayhem of the nightly news, our world is still an incredibly beautiful place. It is worth celebrating. We made so many wonderful friends and had such great conversations everywhere we went. We were both greatly encouraged by our visit to the Rocky Mountains.

Celebrating life and thanking the Lord for His amazing Creation.✨
