A Still Life

I remember my art teacher when I was 12 years old who taught me the principles of creating a still life drawing or painting. I learned that in art I could capture time and not let it pass, but keep it as a secret keepsake in this treasure chest of life. Thank you to My First Love; My Lord and Savior. For it is He who gives and creates, teaching us through this journey. I am forever grateful to see His extraordinary glory in every ordinary moment.

"...be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth" Psalm 46:10

Be still my heart

It's February. My heart is so full of many things. Nearing the final days of Winter this year closes a chapter of life you know is coming but pray for the grace to glide through. Some things just sneak up on you and He carries you through ever so faithfully. Then... there are those awaited days that you know are coming and no matter how you plan for them you can't help but ask "where did the time go?" Births, blessings, so many "firsts", kindergarten, graduations, ordinary sweet days, awards, marriages, then miracle of birth again. Full days pass where nothing seems to completely fit and you wish for more than 24 hours in a day. It has been a history in the making ... replayed, revisited, cherished in the heart with time growing more and more wonderful. Life is precious in all its changes. Along with every change let the moments be captured and stand still in time so I can hang on just a little longer to the role of mom I so naturally am.

 loyal, steadfast and strong
 loving son you are to me
always true to your word
a fine husband you will be
