PEACE...


I want to take a minute to wish each of you peace in the new year.



I'm finding it in being a home body this past month...sewing...playing in my art journal and spending time with those I love...and imagining our son home again.


He's in Afghanistan and I'd love your prayers for him. His last two deployments were - in my mind - not as dangerous - and it seems to be more difficult for him to find peace this time around. But he is doing well. I'll continue to believe that he will thrive.


I hope you'll keep all of those who find themselves in less than peaceful situations...in your thoughts and prayers.



Today, I read something to the effect that's the opposite of 'the straw that broke the camel's back'. It was...what if...your next thought, FINALLY, brought you to the place of ____________ that you've been yearning for. You fill in the blank with whatever it is you want. 


Peace Love and all things Groovy in 2k13!

Create Your Life,

annie!

    1. Thanks for your prayers Annie. It means a lot - to know that people I've never met are 'with me'. It makes me feel stronger. When I saw the Christmas card, I thought the background that I had prepped months ago was perfect for it...and while I don't often draw...this one was really fun to do! I love Cardinals and the scene is very peaceful to me.

  16. I'm new to your blog and am seeing a kindred spirit here:-) thoughts and prayers go to your son and I admire him so much for his service. although I don't believe war is the answer I have to admire those who are brave enough to make our country the power that it is. I will be following your blog from now on:-)

    1. Thank you Sugar Lump! (What a great nickname!!! Even if you don't go by it!!! And I don't even know if it would fit you but for some reason it just tickled me to say it). :) Anyway, I really do appreciate your beautiful compliment and more than anything your prayers for my son. He was also in Iraq during the time your son was. Maybe they know each other! I will thank him for you and please thank your son from the bottom of my heart. Don't you just love our brave boys?

    1. Thank you so much Yvonne! I loved the Christmas card scene and just had to try to duplicate it! Tickles me because I had teachers that told me I couldn't draw and until a few years ago...I believed them!!! Still getting over it though.
