A Prayer For My Family

I know I made another blog for my gripping and groaning but this is a special piece and I wanted to share it with you.

As you know our family is going thru some tough times right now...and I was at the point of giving up today...I decided to try and put my feelings down on paper thru art.

The church image I found on Collage Images Flickr spoke to me because it reminded me of home and looks so much like the church my parents were wed in..

While I still lived in WA the church I just spoke of was gutted out by a fire. I remember that day like it was yesterday. I wish you all could of seen the inside before that had happen...The most beautiful statues and stained glass windows I had ever seen! What a shame.

After I finished this piece along with my prayers...I now once more feel hopeful again! This piece at a later date will be framed an hung in our home to remind us there is always hope.

Thank You for letting me share this with you!

I know I've already commented on Flickr, but I can't get over this piece, Nancy, it's so very beautiful and moving.

Please let me know if you ever make copies of it to sell, I would love one.

I'm so glad that you are feeling more hopeful - your prayers cannot fail to be answered when they are expressed in such a glorious way.

Have a beautiful Sunday Nancy, and a wonderful week ahead...

Much Love, Hugs & Special Prayers,
Q xXx

I think my hubby is feeling better too a bit...but is still stressed about the rent and such...I think I finally made a piece of art he likes LOL

Happy day to you too and Hope your week is good as well..and where is miss jude she ok?
