Love me for who I am


I want to be allowed to be myself
To be loved for who I am
I want to be accepted, flaws and all
Despite the mistakes of my past

I want to live beyond our past
To spend our time looking forward
I want to celebrate the goodness in each other
Offering the gift of forgiveness and trust

I want the opportunity to grow
To show off the person I've become
To shine with the love that's in my heart
For you to tell me that it's enough

Numbers 15:38

The tassels dangle from the corners of the afghan
So soft and fluffy and colorful
And as I wrap the afghan around myself
Caressing the fabric of the tassel
I'm struck with a memory of God
Who said to put blue thread in the tassels
As a reminder of His commandments
So that we might turn from the promptings
And the sinful inclinations of our hearts
Denying ourselves instead and changing our ways
Becoming holy like God is holy
And so I wrap the afghan around myself
Caressing the fabric of the tassel
Feeling myself enfolded in His love
And knowing that He is near

Emerald Waters



This is another Bob Ross technique - it's my new favorite

Autum Stream



This painting took several days - not my best, but worth posting, I guess
