It pleases God when we use our gifts and talents to glorify God. Creative work exchanges a lack of words for a sweet fellowship of worship.

  This piece is a hand embroidery I did with a ship, palm trees, different types of flowers and leaves tied together with a knot.


  I have been in a tropical mood lately which shows in a lot of my work right now, and during the time I was sketching this piece there was many troubling events happening in America and the world.  It saddens me how divided we are as a country and as a nation, how we are unable to come together and embrace our differences with compassion, love and respect.  
"The most basic of all human needs is the need to understand and be understood. The best way to understand people is to listen to them."~Ralph Nichols
All the mixed patterns, textures and colors makes life rich, fun and interesting.  How boring would it be if they were all the same!
