I've been absent for a little over a week.
I spent eight days with my aging parents.
The decisions we needed to make were heavy ones.
I returned home yesterday afternoon and today went with my husband to Winona Lake (IN)
where he attended a seminar.
I stopped at a Goodwill store before settling in at a coffee shop there.
I purchased a mug ($.50) and this watercolor ($.75).
This was the explanation enclosed with the painting...
It was very appropriate to my current situation.
There WERE hours when the effort to look up in hope seemed too much;
however, the touch of the Holy DID invite me to stand up straight.
I shall cherish this painting and consider it quite a token of God's reassuring presence.
(OK. I THINK it is a watercolor. I need to do a little more research.)
