Winter’s End and Art

As God sends spring at winter’s end and Birds return to build again – as dark woods quicken into green beneath the kiss of April’s rain, so shall I wake one happy day and feel the pulse of life anew, looking out with fearless  eyes towards a broader brighter view – discovering forgotten dreams and happiness long denied – learning how to live again, by many sorrows purified. As new sap rises in the bough and bursts  the folded buds apart, so will hope bring forth her flowers and joy return unto my heart. -Strong

A Prayer and Art

Lord support us all the day long of this troublous life, until the shadows lengthen and the evening comes and the busy world is hushed and the fever of life is over and our work is done.

Then, of Thy great mercy grant us safe lodging, and holy rest, and peace at the last, through Jesus Christ. Amen.

Spring: Walk Softly

Walk softly on a woodland path, put each foot down with care,

for those who own this bit of world are around us everywhere.

Walk gently on a woodland path,for trespassers are we.

On land that owned by furry ones-bird butterfly and bee.

Abandoned Church Silent and Empty

Standing silent and empty.

New Painting
Title: Sacred Places – Remains of earlier times.
Theres always something intriguing and sad about abandoned places. This church stands silent and empty perhaps still waiting for the people to return.

The unattended headstones always bother me about these places.
