Isn't it interesting how once in a while, a particularly significant and poignant time of life sneaks up on you? Have you had that happen to you? And I am finding that during this kind of time, it is crucial to put the important things first, and fit the rest of life around them. Interestingly, as I have been visiting at my son's church the last couple of Sundays, this has been the theme of their sermon series. As I type, I can envision the graphic they have had on the screen demonstrating the principle of putting first things first.
This painting that I am posting is one of a collection of small paintings that I group together to use as prayer cards. They could be used in a lot of ways, such as listing things that I want to remember to pray for, or listing Bible verses that remind me of things I am thankful for, or separating my prayer list into daily segments. Prayer lists can be especially helpful to me during hectic days. I am making some sets to offer for sale at the art fair I will be part of August 25-26 in Syracuse, IN. (If you are interested in a set of cards - each about 4" square - contact me! I can work with you on your favorite color combinations for your own set, which will sell for around $20.)
This art fair is just part of a PACKED schedule for the next while. I am having the opportunity now of putting the first,
