Today is Kelly Pace's birthday. Enjoy the love story below.
This past weekend I was blessed with several hours of our son Morgan working with me in the studio as he painted something special for his wife Kelly for her Birthday. So today's blog will be sharing Morgan's incredible work. Morgan can paint... really paint!
When he arrived he had something in his head and immediately sought out the canvas and coated it with a strong acrylic layer. Then the oils came out. The brush became at first still and then relaxed in his hand and the spirit of the paint grew in the composition.

I really wish Morgan would paint again and sell his work. His great grandfather, Granddaddy Haskell was an artist, and between those genes and mine, he has a gift. Right now he is busy with life and
T D Ameritrade. Hoping to coax him back to the studio soon.
He and Kelly grew up in the same church, but he and her sister were the same age. Kelly was the 'tag' along sibling whenever the youth group did things. When Morgan was in his late twenties he decided he wanted my input on someone to date...and I was at church with my mom and saw Kelly with her family. She is so precious... a tiny petite blonde with a smile that lights up a room. I asked Mom when she would be graduating from high school. Mom's expression was laughter. Kelly had just graduated college and was starting her master's program at North Texas. It took about six weeks before they had their first date and if I recall correctly, Morgan took her to the Valentine's symphony at the Myerson in Dallas.
It was only a few years later in May of 2011 (I hope I have the year right), that they married.

So today is her birthday and we could not begin to tell her how much we love her. She is a beautiful part of our family.
But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if even death separates you and me.” When Naomi realized that Ruth was determined to go with her, she stopped urging her. Ruth 1: 16-18
