Book of Favorite Images

Well, we are starting our fourth month of unemployment. I received an email from a cousin which included something I’ve heard all my life. It had an added segment I’d never heard but is TOTALLY what we’re feeling. “Whenever God Closes One Door, He Always Opens Another, Even Though Sometimes It’s Hell in the Hallway”. We’re still in the hallway! 😦

Tuesday morning after MUCH procrastinating I FINALLY decided it was time to color again. I decided to do something I would throughly enjoy! That was to make a book of my favorite images! For Magnolia that took no thought at all. From the minute I saw “Spring Bundler” I loved her. Quite a difference of coloring from the first one I colored. 🙂 She’s here. Although, I still like the card!

If you know me at all then you know that the color peach, orange has to be involved!! I just look at it and smile!!!! It makes me happy!!

  9. Beautiful coloring Myrna! So glad you decided it was time for a little therapy. Hmmmm, the hallway! From my experience, that’s where God is doing the most work! Embrace the hallway and draw nearer. Be of good courage and fear not! Keep up the coloring and keep using orange! You do it beautifully…hugs…Barb <

  10. Myrna – I am so sorry about the stressful times you are going through. I to have been down that hallway on several occasions and each time it was like my heart was being ripped out of my chest. It would not surprise me to see that hallway again. You have a lot of friends that care Myrna. I think it is a fabulous idea to make a book using your favorite Magnolia images and this first page is wonderfully done – very pretty.
