 Proverbs 21:2-3
"All a mans ways seem right to him, but the Lord weighs the heart.
To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice."

Dear Father, You know my heart better than I do.  Nothing is hidden from You.  For You search every heart and understand every motive behind our thoughts.  You have shown us what You require of us ~ that we act justly and love mercy and walk humbly with You.  So I pray, "Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.  See if there is any offensive way in me and lead me in the way everlasting.  I love You.  Amen.

I praise Thee, Lord,
For cleansing me from sin.
Fulfill Thy Word,
And make me pure within.
Fill me with fire,
Where once I burned with shame.
Grant my desire
To magnify Thy Name.

"Stormy Weather" watercolor by Wanda

We have been out of town attending an Memorial Service up North where we served in a Church for many many years.  Even thought we have been retired 10 years and live out of the area, they are still "family" and loved to have Pastor Don officiate the services as loved ones pass away.

That is why my contribution for this week is a painting I did in 2007 for a set of Winter Scenes Note Cards.   We aren't as young as we used to be, and needed a few days rest to catch up.    It looks blurry...but that's just the loose watercolor to give the effect of a storm rolling in. 

Look forward to seeing all the "Storms" for the Picnic this week.  Guess we won't be having it outdoors.....haha. And then again, why not!!!!!

To see all the other storms...just click on the Scribble Picnic Badge on my sidebar.

My dearest and I are home safe and sound after our whirlwind trip of North for the Memorial Service.

Thank you for your love and prayers.  This picture was taken outside the church after the service and I thought it was a really nice picture of me and my dearest.

Busy week ahead.  Salad Luncheon and Tea Party at the Clubhouse Thursday instead of a Cooking Class this month.  Will take pictures to share.

With this season of our lives it seems we see to many friends passing away.  We got a call that one of those dear friends had passed away and they have asked my dearest to have the Memorial Service.  We are leaving this morning for a quick weekend trip up North where we served those many years.
Would appreciate your prayers for journey's mercies and for Don as he shares God's Word at the service and that we can be a comfort to the family.

I'm posting Sunday now, since we won't be home.  

Wishing all of You a Lovely God Blessed Mother's Day.

The theme for this week is "Strawberry".  I've missed the past couple of weeks and was anxious to get back in the swing of things so I will gather a basket of strawberries and meet you at the park.

Is there anything better than a juicy ripe strawberry picked right off the vine?

Of course, they make divine smoothies, salads, milkshakes and who hasn't had a box of "Sherie's Berries" chocolate covered strawberries delivered right to your door.

To check out all the other strawberries, just click on my Scribble Picnic badge on the sidebar,
