Let all that you do be done in love. 1 Cor 16 (New art series)

‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’

Jeremiah 29:11

A new project series underway,  my plan is to finish in September and It will a series of twelve paintings from photos of World Vision's work in the field.  All of them will be the same size and frames as the last series.  I pray for brighter days as so many are struggling this season. so far it has been an easy choice for the photos   The completed project won’t end until September so follow me this Spring and Summer on this journey. I really hope that you enjoy this series, and learn at the same time about World Vision’s work in the field through some of the world's most amazing photography.  Half way through painting my first painting my mother passed away, she has been ill for a very long time, in a wheelchair,  with one health crisis after another. (she almost died many times)  I helped her with all that for over twenty years. 
I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.Abraham Lincoln

Let all that you do be done in love.
 1 Corinthians 16
Many of the pieces were a blessing, they were sold for hunger, displayed at events, one displayed at work for a month and inspired sponsorship.  one brought out emotions, like this lady above who sponsored a girl from India. ( I have her permission, she took video of me too).  :)  

It is true that a prayer that comes from the heart  can move mountains, it increases your faith, and brings you closer to God. Rebecca Small
Today as you pray, remember that God's timing
 is often different than ours.

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.  For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,  I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you?  When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
Matthew 25:34-40
