I am blessed with the knowledge that the Lord holds steady the hoops I have to dive through….

“Peace,” He said to me.

I know that the Lord looks after the widows, taking the place of the husband who helped with decisions and guidance of the children.  I seek guidance all the time so that I can be sure to do the right things.  I keep forgetting the promise that He will not allow me to be led astray because I do seek His guidance.  What I question about myself is why I keep watching for the Lord to break His promises, or change His mind?  He doesn’t.

My Favorite Tree at Petit Jean

tree 002

As always, the foto doesn’t do it justice.

…By small and simple things are great things brought to pass; and small means in many instances doth confound the wise.” 

Alma 37:6

This scripture had been running though my head as was drawing.  Not sure why.  Today, I had to laugh, because a small woman  confounded many men by dressing as a man to be on the ship’s crew so she would not be separated from her fiancĂ©. They named the mountain after her, Petit Jean, when she dies of an illness, and built an iron fence around her grave at the overlook.  People still lay flowers inside the fence.

Singing our song

easter cake and bagels 005

A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and sings it to you when you forget the words.

Even if it’s howling.

What I’m working on


I’m using a picture in a book for reference and am really intimidated drawing the muzzle.  The wolf is just gazing through the branches of this pine tree.

The left ear interior is darker than the right one in the photo, but something must be done to balance it out in the drawing.

I dreamed that I could fly

The other night I was having a dream that meandered  here and there as they do. I couldn’t see who was with me, but I knew someone was there.  I began floating and flying.  I turned to them and said, “You didn’t know I could fly, did you?  I do it only when people aren’t looking.”

Hmm… I wonder if the most wonderful and interesting things I do, I keep to myself?  Maybe so.

Today is a 2-fer day

My friend Dana loves sandals and wears them only when it isn’t snowing.
