Vincent Van Gogh
Bulb Fields

Frank Horvat

The above photo reminds me so much of a Toulouse-Lautrec.

City or Country...
beauty is all around.

I hope you see many beautiful things today.
I'm feeling blessed and sheltered and incredibly fortunate today.
That my day can be peace filled and beautiful.
It's not fair, is it?

Lifting our hurting world up in prayer.

Encourage one another,

    Thank you for these thoughts. Yes, we are very fortunate . I pray for our Christian brothers and sisters who are suffering more than we can imagine.

      Lord have mercy on all who are oppressed, believers or not - praying that those who don't know him will follow ...

      Lord hear our prayers


  2. Yay, art! I like that Van Gogh. Never seen it.

    Grateful for our shelter, too.

      Susan, exploring the mountains in Germany just sounds lovely. Have a wonderful time and be sure to tell us a little something about it when you get back!

  4. Along with the persecuted... I'm praying for the people in St. Louis and Africa.

    Art lifts my spirits and these two pieces are inspiring. Quiet here today and enjoying simple pleasures like watching the birds splash about in our small fountain and going to the library. Blessings indeed.

    Praying for the persecuted, those living in unrest and tension filled places and those who are afraid..."for all those in any trouble, sorrow, need, sickness or any other adversity" as the Book of Common Prayer states. Lord in Your mercy, please hear our prayers. love and prayers, jep
