Altered Art.

I put out a few of  My Valentine tags that blogging friends have given Me in ATC Trades.These three cards are from two very talented ladies....Mersades Scott and Kelley Deal.A trade We were all involved with in 2014.I still love trading ATCs and Tags, and I still have all of them from ladies around the world and never plan on getting rid of them. Through these last several Years I have really come to like having these tiny bits of hand made treasures.

I have been keeping Myself busy in My spare time by taking Tamera Laporte's mixed media art class online, Life Book 2016. I will always be grateful to Tamera because I won a free seat  in Her class.I will post some of My first attempts and then hopefully at the end of the Year I will post My final pieces....Attempts verses pieces : / I have given My painting names......
(Fearless)

(Leave it go).

(Faith) My traveling companions.

(Box of wisdom gained).These were the first four weeks of classes.I'm a beginner but there are all levels of talent in the class.It's not too late to join Us, registration goes on for a long long time. Everyone, of course, has different goals for this class, Mine is to learn to use My art to glorify My Lord.  Love and continued blessings-Denise

My journey Home

My Journey Home

                                             By now You may know I like to keep My eyes on My eternal  home. How blessed I am and all who travel to this home.

  The path to My home is narrow,Be careful as You travel.
 It will be worth it.The path has many turns and different sights to see. Some bright.... 
   Others dark.... 
but I can still see the light at the end of the tunnel
Isn't this a marvelous spot? A real earthly place in the Netherlands.How majestic. I'm wondering if this photo was enhanced for lighting and effects.I do know Heaven won't need any external enhancement.Oh I can only imagine and that's exactly what I love doing.Just imagine. Love Denise

Joy for 2016

My prayer...Blessings for You and Your Family in 2016.

We don't know where 2016 will lead Us nor what it will bring.The places We'll go,even the plans we will make may not come true.We don't know of course but We can still be sure there will be many happy surprises left in Our lives because  He loves Us, like no other love.

   
Our families yes are treasures, Our memories We May hold dear.
Our homes We have decorated and cared for through the many Years.
The Family Fun Mendhi:
Art, music or dance We appreciate,

Things We keep near to  bring Us a smile.

Is it just Me I wonder, no, because I've heard others say.....
As We get to the  Winter Years of Our lives most all things hold less of a  grip on Us.I am looking towards Eternity with an inner peace and joy.

I  feel this starting to happen in My Own life,just a slight touch of it You see but the Lord God of  all is tugging Me and preparing Me, being ever so closer to My final home.Now I sit with silence in His presence listing to His soft gentle voice telling Me all is well with My Soul in His hands."Be still and know that I am God," said the light from the light above,comes the words from His word to My heart.

*:
Happy New Year 2016- Denise

Sweet Tender Jesus,when We are stressed.

Each Christmas Season I try to keep My mind and heart light.I try to banish from My thoughts all unhappy family entanglements and happenings.Yes, this season does bring Me a lot of stress under the merriment.I have to force Myself each day to stop the fretting,to look up and out and keep My mind on Jesus.To sit at His feet and listen to what He says to Me. Sweet loving words He whispers to Me.Reassures Me of His love and reminds Me of My eternal home and how near I am to it.When I am stressed due to family matters, He is at His sweetest,most tender and understanding.Memories of growing up in a warm family where I know now as an adult, there were stressful times for My parents,I was blissful during Christmas.The memories of Christmases spent raising My four little daughters,makes Me miss those Years also.I love now at this age,looking up and out at the face I will be spending My future with, My beloved Jesus....come soon Baby Jesus. My one hope and prayer is that not one of My descendants will be left behind.If You are reading this I pray the same for You. 












A peaceful Christmas for Us all. God Bless-Denise

Sweet Winter Dreams




Merry Christmas From Me and a few of My favorite illustrators.






As quoted by the author: "Brambly Hedge is my ideal world. The way the mice live is completely natural, which is how I think life ought to be. They appreciate and use everything that grows around them. Theirs is a loving and caring society, but the mice are not just series and worth. They have FUN! Life is a series of picnics and gatherings, parties and outings.":      Sweet Winter Dreams, Hugs and Blessings-Denise.... and to name a few illustrators that .....Sponge Bob quote...   " My IMAGINATION" (not My talent) has a lot in common with....Jill Barkham, EH Shepard,Inga Moore,Molly Brett and Beverley Gooding.
One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
