I am so thankful you stopped by my field of dreams today. I have just sat here and read through all of the first page of your posts and they bless my soul so deeply, your first being the daisy's. I love daisy's. Then all of the beautiful photography of your color wheels, but the one that had me wanting to cry and drop to my knees was the dream you had of us being in white robes and it just moved me so deeply.
I have always felt that to understand the Bible we must always look to the feasts and the stories behind them because we will still celebrate them in heaven.
I will be back.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for using your beautiful gift to glorify our Father,
Blessings to you today.

Oh myy goodness Karen! You really are a talent to behold....you have so many styles and genres that are truly amazing. What a great day to start my day, here in this WINDY region....we are having HURRICANE type winds that are quite frankly, FRIGHTENING! Have a great day, Anita

Oh, I love these daisies, Karen! Your talent is such a blessing to others. I hope you know that. Just lovely.

And these were my grandmother's favorite flowers. I have a photo of her standing beside some daisies, going, "He loves me. He loves me not." And there is a write-up from the society column about a party she gave where there were "daisies, daisies" everywhere. It was a summer party, and apparently she hand painted a daisy screen. She was quite the artist and studied "china painting" in finishing school. I don't know what happened to the screen, but the orchestra sat behind it. Doesn't that sound romantic?

I'm off in a few, but I wanted to drop by and visit you first. I'm so glad I did!

XOXOXO,

Sheila :-)

Well, they say that practice makes perfect. Since you're already perfect, I'm not sure what practice does, but I do love your daisies. laurie
