Matthew: 25:35: For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.

The fabric used is of course Greenhouse Fabrics. If it's not broken "don't fix it". This fabric was purchased some time back (it is now discontinued but you can sti...

When I create many times I find I miss the hidden beauty of the abstract unless I take time to be still Psalms 46:10 and learn to use my view finder to explore what lies within the details. YOUR JOY AWAITS YOU🤗💓  Follow your heart and create guided by the Spirit.  

Psalms 46:10 Be Still and know that I am God.

This scripture has always brought me peace and time of reflection. Reflection that brings about questions that pertain to why am I doing art? Why am I creating such a thing as a Prayer Pillow?

Life is ROUGH and TOUGH! Being a follower of Jesus I don't have all the answers and my life is not without its afflictions and suffering. BUT as a follower of Jesus I have been SAVED and I live with a strong foundation of truths that come from...
