Well last night was the ball.  Everything was beautiful and both paintings did well. I did the one above and a small collage of hearts on old pages of Scripture.  We sat with Patty and Bo Pilgrim and enjoyed visiting and talking about art, painting, church, airplanes etc. I think we covered a lot of territory over dinner and dancing. I am anxious to see some of Patty's artwork.  She is five years into using oils but before did portrait painting and china painting.  The Holy Spirit was at the table last night as we shared our faith through out the evening.

The MC was Mark Scrito from ABC Affiliate in Tyler, KLTV 7 Chief Meteorologist, and he was absolutely the best part of the evening, he and his lovely wife Beth.  He did the auction with such spirit and enthusiasm and the Cypress Basin did very well at this event. It was celebrating 25 years of their existence serving the many counties in this region. This picture is of Terry and I, Beth and Mark Scrito and Vicki Fletcher.   Paul was the camera man!  



Okay so I didn't listen.  Have you ever done that??  My mother had given me a nice black skirt and top to wear last night and the top was too large through the shoulders.  I had it pinned to take it to the seamstress but when bad weather hit I didn't get it done. We had taken a quick road trip to Longview for a dress just a few days ago and I could not find anything black, which is also what Kimberly Conrad recommended.   I did find something and wore it but in the pictures..yuck.  Should have stayed with black. Every woman there OVER the age of 35 was wearing black. Well almost. Vicki wore purple and I had on a deep mauve that the light would cause it to go black or burgundy at times.  In the pictures it does not match, the skirt and top, so it is going back to the store. Positive note, it was comfortable. Negative, it didn't match.  So I didn't listen. God was telling me all week.. and I should have altered that jacket by hand and I will do that now for sure.  

Why we get so focused on things that we run off in other directions I have no idea...so it is back to listening listening listening... to those who love me and He who loves me most. 

By the way... I was visiting Laura Frantz's blog and she was writing about this other outstanding blog and I must must share it. This is one of only two that I subscribe to through email.  Check out 'A Holy Experience' as you will NOT be disappointed. 


May your Sunday be blessed and your new week full of His many Graces He has ready for you.
