"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.

Abide painting




I think this is my favorite one so far!
Notice the signature. Mina, my "grandmother" name!!
It's better than what my son calls me, "Mother F".
All in good fun - remember my last name is Freeman. :)

I really like this one! The heart with the streaming red paint, or tears maybe. Very good piece. Your son sounds like a handful. :)

Hey Mary the boldness of this piece to me represents the boldness of which you witness to us. I love it.

Tell him if I was there I would put him on the "naughty mat". Just joking, you hubby is blown away by some of the things my grown oldest son says to me as my hubby was of another generation of which he would NEVER say anything questionable to his ma even if fun. Another generation isn't it. xxmollye

Denise said...

So very, very beautiful. Thank you so much for the card, and wonderful love offering that my husband and I received in our mailbox today. Your kindness is really appreciated. May you be sweetly blessed. I love you.
