My art and writing are two channels I use to express gratitude for all the goodness in my life.  Being creative requires me to step out of my comfort zone and explore new avenues.  When I write and paint from the heart, everything makes sense.  I am grateful for the opportunity to share my joy with you.

Peace and Glad Tidings


A Christmas candle is a lovely thing; It makes no noise at all, But softly gives itself away. ~Eva Logue

The gifts are wrapped, tucked under the tree.  Cards have been sent, cookies baked, lights hung.  In our cozy little home, the spirit of Christmas has settled, wrapping us in good cheer and sweet anticipation.

I pause and reflect on the blessings of this season.  The house is quiet, husband and daughters out doing last minute shopping, and I find the stillness soothing.  I'm thankful for the {temporary} silence, for the sound of rain softly tapping against the window, the gentle glow of candle light, the holy hush that has settled.  It is enough.

May the spirit of this gentlest of seasons bring peace and glad tidings to your hearts and comfort to your souls.  Until we meet again in the new year, I send you my love.
