IT has been a day and feels almost like two days.  We had the memorial service for my fatherinlaw Ben yesterday afternoon.  It was a celebration of a life made special by the blessing God gave this man. He touched the lives of EVERYONE he met every single day of his life.

This morning we are heading to the VA cemetery for an honorary military funeral.  Terry will be presented with the flag from his father's service. This means so very much to him.  I told him last night that God has graced and blessed him with some of the same fine gifts of his father.  I am blessed to have him as my husband ( and sometimes there are times I bless him more than others!)  Stacey recited a beautiful poem for her grandfather and Terry stood and gave a wonderful tribute to his dad.

I forgot to mention that Sunday we visited at Uncle George's home and saw  John Ford Coley. He is Terry's first cousin.  We have not seen John in quite a few years.  I know you will know him if you hear his music. He sang with England Dan.  Here is John's website...CLICK HERE.  He is traveling right now with his music in the Philippines. He walks this faith every single day and believes in the touch of the Lord in everyone's life.   I believe Terry and I will plan to attend one of his concerts now that we are retired..just pick and choose where to travel to and enjoy the journey.

I am excited about going home today. It has been sooo long since we were there.  Paddy is waiting for us to be there with him.  I have so many pictures to unload and paint from and so many pictures to share.

I am praying for you this day that the Lord brings light into your life and you will see the beauty of his love.
“Be glad, O people of Zion, rejoice in the LORD your God, for he has given you the autumn rains in righteousness. He sends you abundant showers, both autumn and spring rains, as before.”- Joel 2:23

Love your colors. Just everything you do jumps off the canvas and makes one react to it. Fabulous!
