Today, my almost 18 year old Kitty died. He has been sick for awhile, so I knew it would be soon, but it was still such a HARD day! I had to take my children to Heritage Day at our church, as my son was in a play. We had planned to take Ninjinsky to the vet to have him "put to sleep," but when my husband returned home to pick him up, he was already gone. We feel blessed that he could die at home and not have to be poked and prodded by a vet!!! 'Jinsky was born to my husband's favorite cat in 1989. We had decided to keep him, after my nagging and begging, on our way home from our honeymoon. He was named for the infamous Russian ballet star. Unlike his namesake, he WAS not a graceful cat on his feet! He was my first "baby" and he led a long, happy life! I hope he is somewhere playing "sheet wars", indulging in cat nip and play fighting with "gone" Keeshonds!
I specialize in watercolor with pen and ink, mixed media and mail art, including art dolls. I love creating and sowing the fertile soil of my creative mind with new art techniques or subjects.
Some of my favorite subjects to paint include: Marie Antoinette, Alice in Wonderland, mermaids, fairies, mushrooms and Candy Land. I like to paint my own visions of these things.
I am a born again Christian. Fundamentalist Baptist, to be exact. I am serious about my faith, it is my life, which is why I include it here. As I believe one day, I will stand before the Lord and give an account of every word and every opportunity to share the Gospel, I present the Gospel on this page and possibly in any materials I send out. I do not do this to be obnoxious. I do it to obey my God and my faith. Please be as tolerant and understanding of my faith as you would want me to be of yours. Yes, I would like you to be saved, because I believe it is the only way to Heaven. But, I respect you as a person, no matter what decision, lifestyle or faith you may choose.
I believe the following about salvation:Becoming a Christian is simple. It only requires belief. It cannot be earned in any way. It is the free gift of God.1. Admit you are a sinner and that you need a savior. That is, YOU can do NOTHING to save yourself. Romans 3:23. Admit that God sent His son Jesus Christ to die on the cross in your place. John 3:16 and Romans 6:23. Believe that Jesus rose the third day, thus gaining the ultimate victory over death for all eternity! Romans 10:19. Ask God to forgive you and to give you new life in Christ. Repent of your sins before God and ask Him to make you a new creature in Christ Jesus. Romans 10:19. You can have peace and eternal securtiy in Christ! Romans 10:9 and Romans 10:13. If you still have doubts as to Jesus Christ and God's plan for salvation, please read the Gospel of John and the book of Romans carefully. Ask God to reveal His truth to you.
