I am not a person who accepts anything less than doing things well - not from myself, and sadly, not from others. I am trying, at this ripe old age, to learn to draw, and paint. I have been doing oils for a while, passably, but not well. Lately, I have tried my hand at watercolors. In an effort to learn to accept myself, with all my imperfections, I am sharing some of my efforts with you today. You have to know this is not easy for me. I do not like for anyone to see my lack of ability.
But, there is a lesson for all of us here. God loves us, in spite of our imperfections. He sees beyond my pitiful efforts, all the way to the inner person who sincerely wants to do well. He knows every inch of me and accepts me as I am. He wants me to grow, and try, and learn...but He loves me where I am.

|The still life I set up and did by myself at home...|
I guess that was worthy of being written, and read, today. I hope it blesses someone.
