I am so excited to share my new Fishprint product. It is a large white heart Poster with a beautiful black background..with the words over the heart, “Always In Our Heart.” It can be customized by Size, Color, Name, Date, or Room to Add Name later.
Perfect for Wedding fingerprint and signature guest sign in, or Baby Showers, Anniversary, Birthdays and any occasion where you want to remember your guests.
Also, I am now hand painting the fingerprint signature tree on canvas for those who are looking for something very original. And… Hand painting matts leaving room for signatues, fingerprints, and a picture in the middle.
It’s a new season..time to do something new and out of the box. Impress your guests by ordering an “Always in Our Heart” original from me.
My gift to you is a hand painted greeting card. It is free for the asking. I love painting flowers on greeting cards and giving them away. I have enjoyed going to many places, sitting at a table with my paints and watching the smiles on people’s faces as I hand them a card. It is my honor and joy to be able to do this.
Just email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org with your address and I’ll be happy to send you one.
If you are interested in a bulk order for personal use or gifting idea for a group, charity, or ministry, we can discuss that by email or phone.
Click here to enjoy This is my son Brad’s Christmas present to me. He programed several of my painted flowers to appear as a Mahjong game. Needless to say I was blown away at his clever idea and thoughtfulness. So click on and have some fun too. This can be played on an Ipad as well as an I phone or Android.. The Android is a little slower but still works.
I realize that this has special meaning to me but several people have already said they are enjoying playing it also. So tell a friend and have some fun. It is free to play.
Thank you my son, I love you.
It’s hard to believe that April has finally arrived. We had a cold wet winter and springtime is finally here.
So many thoughts are going through my head, some old and need to be kept in the past, just like winter and yet some new, fresh and hopeful, just like spring. But there is one thought that stays with me no matter what the season, the pleasure that I feel as I paint a flower on a greeting card and then give it away. I know that seems so simple, but really, aren’t the simple things we do in life everyday, the things that make us smile?
I find it very difficult to find the words to what I am feeling inside, a fresh explosion of spring perhaps, but far beyond spring. It is a well known saying, “Nothing says ‘I love you’ more than a flower.” My prayer is that people will be touched with the love of God in a most unique way by getting a hand painted flower card.
So, here is my plan, I will hand paint a greeting card for free to anyone who will send me their address, so I then can mail it to you. It will be blank inside with its own envelope so you may pass it along to someone else if you desire. As I move along in this process, I will also make available that I could send a hand painted card with a message inside, of your choosing, to send to you or someone else, for you. The card will still remain free. I think though, to be practical on my part, I have a Donate Button available on this site for those who may want to contribute to postage.
I am also realizing that this could become very big very fast and there will be those who will want to share in this so others can receive their card. I’m not sure where it will go from here, but I won’t know unless I just step out and do it.
I have seen the smiles on people as they receive their card and I have also heard some testimonies of how God intervened for them and showed His love by this simple little gesture of kindness. After painting over 120 cards at the Home Show last fall and giving them away, I know I can do this. I am so excited to see how God is using this.
If you happen to live in Redding, California, just come into our office at 2936 Churn Creek and I’ll make sure you get a card. OR
Email me at email@example.com with your address and I’ll send you one.
Blessings and beyond,
When my ears are touched with the sounds of faith,
my eyes begin to see,
the strength of hope of His perfect plan
and love beyond degree.
Now the challenge is to recognize the sounds of faith.
In my experience, it may not be the same for all of us. Anything that causes our attention to be on God and not ourselves may be one of those sounds. I challenge you to ask the Lord to help you recognize those sounds of faith when they happen.
After listening to our pastor this morning I was reminded of how important the act of Grace is in this journey called life. I’m excited to experience this work of Grace in a new and powerful way this year. Not only God’s grace to me but grace extended from me to others because of that grace extended to me. I know that was a run on sentence, but that’s okay, it’s my blog and I just gave myself grace to do it.
I am so reminded of 11 Corinthians 6:1, a verse that the Lord reminded me of a few months ago and that is, not to take His grace in vain. I knew He was speaking to me and now I appreciate it even more. God is getting ready to do something really big. Are we prepared for what God is wanting to do in each of us? It does take a new and fresh appreciation of His grace outpoured individually and to the world.
I know I posted my poem on this way back when I started this website but I think now is the time to repost it.. It never gets old and it is universal. When I am in the market place and sharing my line of greeting cards..there is two poems that are accepted anywhere, No Fear and Great Grace. So here it is again, just a reminder of His Great Grace.
Your love is deeper than the deepest sea,
And reaches far above the sky.
Your outstretched arms,
Your nail scarred hands,
For me You came to die.
The heavens declare Your mighty works,
The earth reveals Your glory,
No greater love has touched my Heart,
The true redemption story.
Just the thought of that one drop of blood being enough to give me life and to be seen by God as righteous . I am still awed by that fact, just one drop of that pure undefiled blood, shed for me. It cost heaven everything so I could have a relationship with my Heavenly Father. There is no greater cost.
To think that God sent His son to become a child, to be tempted like we are, yet without sin, to become a man, to shed that one drop of blood for me.
I can’t help but think about Him being that baby in a manger, with all the angels proclaiming His birth, knowing the journey He would be taking, Rejoicing not only at His birth, but my redemption also.
There much rejoicing in that Bethleham sky that night, much more than we even realize. We were included in that event. That is why the angels still rejoice over us as we receive that gift of heaven, that free gift to us, that gift that cost heaven everything.
There was a time when you were small,
You could barely reach My hand,
I held you firm,
I held you strong,
And I watched you grow as time went on.
I am the “One” who holds your hand,
And I will never let you go,
I’ve promised never to leave you,
I just wanted you to know.
In this holiday season it is so easy to get lost in the crowd. Many feel the despair of loneliness gripping their hearts even among friends. I would like to say that I have never felt that but I have felt that and I believe that many others have too. I would like to point out though that the battle is in the mind. That is why it can be such a secret to those around us.
My poetry expresses so many times of the Father’s love and His heart towards us. I never get tired of writing about His care and concern for me and I love sharing His love, especially in poetry style. Seeing encouraging words in writing often can short circuit what our mind is thinking and therefore allow His Heart to touch our heart.
The reality of God holding my hand is a picture in my mind that overcomes anything. Sooo the bottom line is this. Take a moment to allow God to renew your mind with His thoughts towards you, then… do it again and again and over and over and soon, The power of the renewed mind is a lifestyle, not an event.
He promised Never to Leave us, He just wants us to know it, really know it.
