"Purple Posies"

These little purple "posies" are in honor of my dear courageous friend who is going through a very difficult time right now. I guess they are my "virtual bouquet." It is hard to watch people that you care about go through things you wouldn't wish on your worst enemy. But, she is doing so with grace, courage, honesty, and grit. Most importantly she is holding on to her Daddy's hand while doing so. I love this promise from Isaiah - for anyone who feels the need once in awhile to reach up and hang on to someone bigger, stronger, wiser, better, and full of love and understanding - "For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you." Isaiah 41:13 Sometimes ya just need someone to hold your hand.
God's peace!

  1. Julie, beautiful painting and beautiful scripture. Your friend is blessed to receive this bouquet and to have you as a friend. I will say a prayer for her. I was so glad to see a painting on your blog this morning—brightened my day. Have a great Memorial Day!!

  2. I like how your inspirations turn into inspirationals for others. I see the beginnings of a devotional gallery. Thanks for putting some Light and color into my morning!

  3. Carol, thanks so much for your response...and for your prayers! You are such a blessing!

    Jenny, glad it was inspirational...sometimes it feels more confessional in nature. Glad He made it Light and color! Thanks, friend!
