This was to be painted en plein air with my husband on Thursday. It was raining. I decided to stay home and paint inside. Some day I’ll have the nerve to paint outdoors again.

A place of manicured, well tended plants

A crew of master gardeners to keep it free from infection,

How lovely if humanity mimicked nature,

If hands worked together to create beauty,

Instead of raising up in violence,

If hearts moved together in harmony,

Instead of division,

If minds cared for the finished product,

Rather than acting in the moment,

If we turned back to our Creator for intervention,

Instead of relying on our own efforts,

He designed that first garden,

Full of beauty and perfection,

No ugliness, no weeds, no unworkable soil,

Pure, perfect,

Oh that those things would simply disappear,

But we must continue to wait …


About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  1. Kathy, your message and artwork remind me that the Son of God walked this earth to bear faithful witness to His Father along with a spirit of love and harmony.
