White ducks and PicMonkey

We have been watching these two grow....so friendly.

Playing with pic Monkey app, this photo was taken years ago, and that day was blue sky's and no rain in site. This is a fun app to play with your pictures. Unlike adobe photo, where you gotta think. I like elements and adobe, but Pic Monkey is plan old fun!

Arise, my love !


My beloved speaks to me:
"Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away;
for lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone.
The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come

I have been away for a long time. At first I was just plain sick with Fibromyalgia, and then I fell deeper in love with Jesus Christ. And I then found out about the Cloistered Heart way of living, it’s from “The Cloistered Heart” blog site. http://www.thecloisteredheart.org/. This is what she says on her opening page, I found it to be so beautiful and what I long for. Here’s what she says:
THE CLOISTERED HEART IS a way of living for God in the midst of the world. It is heart monasticism that can be embraced by married or single persons, religious or lay. It's an analogy in which our lives can be "monasteries," our hearts can live in the "enclosure" of Christ, and all things may be viewed through the will of God as through a "grille." by Nancy Shuman.
All things may be viewed through the will of God!
  Please pray for me, I’m very willing to blog again but I would love this to be bathed in prayer.I will continue to journal this blog of a woman after God.

Romans 12: 2
Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind,  that you may prove what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

Please don't just read that verse....ponder it in your heart.
Post again soon, 
Love you,

Hippie Colors

Series of Truth

Here's my new girls.
A message of truth

I'm going to stick with a series of three's. I don't know why, I just am.
For now anyway!!

All of these will be in my Etsy shop when it's open.
I wanted to make some coffee cups that made me smile in the morning,  something bright. So I'm having my paintings made up as coffee cups, desert plates....phone covers and more.
I'm still painting...just starting a new series.
love with much love!
(my nail lady gets mad at me HEHEHE)

You are looking across the street to where I live. Right outside my kitchen window,
and it's morning!
I wish you all could see the sunrises that show up here. This photo just isn't it.
Aren't they so lovely.
I'm sharing some of my morning devotions with you today. Sometimes we go through the day without stopping to pray. As His children, we have been invited to sit on Our Father's lap, falling into His tender mercies. I hope you will find this today as always.
Notes from my Journal:
" In the still of the morning I rise to greet another day. To meet God's mercy that has been given to me, all new once again...with that thought I think there is hope for the mercy of God that has been given to me, brand new every morning. I can walk with His mercy on me today, I will walk with His mercy upon me."

It is good to seek the Lord while He may be found.
Let us search and examine our ways,
and return to the Lord.

The trees sing for joy!

At the end of the day I will praise you,O Lord. For your tender mercies. For filling us with your joy!!

Thank you friends for your patience with me. I've landed back here  but  I'm still a bit wiggly.
Going to be having a give away soon....what should it be????

Much love,

Updated Library

I am always changing things around ! I am also forever finding books!!

I have more room for books and wee spots to study.

This side piece I found for $75.00 at my local resale shop, it's really a desk with two file cabinets! I really can use that.

Our family alter.
It used to be at the fireplace, but we found a quiet niche in the Library.
I think family alters are not as common as they should be. It's a wonderful meeting place in your home to pray, sing, read or just stand, sit or kneel in God's presence.
Great comfort for the whole family.

Peace and Blessings,
