Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

Doodle 101 / Piano


Those of you who are following my blog, may have read that my “Mother-in love” has recently gone home to be with the Lord.

One lasting memory that we all share, is her love for music.  What a joy to watch her sit and play the piano…it never mattered that the songs were always the same, that she missed a few keys & added some extra… or that eventually (due to her arthritis) she no longer could play…She simply installed a player piano…& her songs played on…in everyone’s hearts.

When the grandkids were little, she would sit them on her lap, and teach them songs like “I can wash the dishes, I can sweep the floor, I can kiss the pretty girls behind the kitchen door.”

Later, she would thrill and grin from ear to ear just to hear them play or sing a song.

She always had a smile on her face, and a song in her heart.

I love you Mom.
