V is for Values

Season's Greetings!  Advent is a season of expectancy and preparation for the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, which is observed by many Christians prior to Christmas.  As a celebrant of the latter, I vow to keep in mind the very virtuous values addressed in Galatians 5:22-23.

I also believe that if everyone took these viable and vital words to heart, no matter what their personal beliefs, the world would be a much better place to live in.  Thank you for your visit and kind words.  Blessings!

T is for Thanksgiving 2014

Salutations!  To me, Thanksgiving is a day to watch the Macy's parade, set the Thanksgiving table-scape, share a meal with loved ones, watch the Texas' Aggies play (Gig-em!), and most importantly, praise the Lord for all the blessings that He's bestowed upon me.  This year, I am thankful for:

R Is For Romero's Art

Salutations!  Although I find time in my art studio to be rejuvenating, due to my various responsibilities, I've only been able to rejoice in writing posts about it on a bi-weekly basis.  Fortunately I had a little time today, so I respectfully present to you a relatively short post with…

Hope you enjoyed my artwork as much as I enjoyed creating it!  In closing, I leave you with a verse from the Book of Revelation 3:20, "Here I am!  I stand at the door and knock.  If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with them, and they with me."  Thank you for your visit and please leave a comment.  I find comments from my guests to be very reassuring.  Have a restful week!
