Belated Easter Wishes and Randomness...

I just wanted to say that I hope everyone had a very Happy and, most of all, meaningful Easter! We had a very bittersweet Easter here in my area because a tornado hit just south of here on Friday. Many homes, businesses, and lives were damaged or destroyed, and, very sadly, 2 young lives were lost. On a more positive note, the community, although relatively large, has pulled together to support those who were directly affected. Our Easter services on Saturday evening and Sunday morning reminded me that despite the current events, our Savior rose from the grave and lives and we can too through Him. It was such a spirit lift to get to spend the weekend with all the 3 year old's that came to our service as well as my mom, Preston, and grandparents yesterday. Please keep the Murfreesboro community in your prayers. My fiance is a police officer there and they, along with many others, are working tirelessly to get the community back on its feet.

Below is a one of the last pictures my camera took before it decided to croak. Preston, the 2 children I keep, and my friend's 2 children were about to Easter egg hunt this past Thursday. They had a blast and so did we!



On a side note, that is why I haven't posted much here lately. The screen on my camera got cracked in Hawaii and I can't see what I am taking pictures of and now it is full and won't take any more picures until I can get a new memory card or figure out how to get some of the pictures off of it. So, I have 4 paintings that I am working on and will get some pictures posted as soon as possible.
