My beloved parents came for a week and we had a very good time. Mom and I took many walks on the various trails around the county and went to Ariel Foundation Park at sunset. Of course, we took Toby whenever possible, which was not all the time, because he had some mysterious malady that caused him to be unable to jump up into the truck for a few days. He is over it, but Bertha is in the shop right now. Dad and I went fishing one morning and we also went to see the train at Gambier and the two train stations in town. We also went to the Knox County Historical Museum, which was very interesting. He also kindly indulged my love of the game Battleship. LOL! Here are some photos. Unfortunately, I didn’t get photos of every place we went.
I have also been slowly getting back into my art. I think that I have been morbid in trying to glorify God in my art. I was overanalyzing and making my own life difficult. If I seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, then it must follow that I will glorify Him in all aspects of my life as well as I can as long as I am dragging this old flesh around. So, I will relax, work on my relationship with the Lord (by His grace and with His strength), and get to work on my art!
I am working on a pencil drawing and preparing for another bird picture in pastels.
“Beauty unites all things, links together flower and star, with chains more certain than those of reason. The poet, the artist, thus finds the clue which guides them in their pilgrimage throughout the world.” — Henry James Slack
