                    It matters Not How Oft YOU kneel 
                         In attitude of Prayer so true
              Unless inside, where no man sees,
                   Your very soul is kneeling too.
                                          Mary L. O'Hara
        Today, I painted Mary kneeling as I imagine she did kneel a lot in prayer. Angels all around her I imagine and of course GABRIEL appeared to Mary, urging her to not be afraid after  Gabriel explained the role that Mary was to play in God's plan of salvation, Mary was surprised and troubled at his news. Luke 1:30 Mary responded, "How can this be, since I have no relations with a man!" Luke 1:34
       I LOVE the idea Rebecca has, to SLOW down in this hustle and bustle season, sharing a" Virgin a day!"Remembering what CHRISTMAS is all about!,the birth of JESUS!!! Please join us Rebecca's

We all have such a different approach today. Spadoman is full of encyclopedic info, you've taken a theological approach, Deb is featuring an especially pretty cemetery statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe, and I am irreverent. It's fun to visit everyone, because they'll all so different. Rebecca's, of course, is pure vintage Rebecca.

Cinda, am I detecting a new emerging style. Seems like you have been moving away from big eyes and collage and have been doing more painting. I like!!

I've always loved the phrase "Jesus is the reason for the Season". Beautiful painting Cinda, I love it. I get a new computer for Christmas and I will be back more often then. I am so excited. It has 3 GB of storage. Imagine all that I can do with it, just imagine. I am doing great at rehab and am walking much better. I hope you are continuing to be well and heal during this wonderful season. God be with you my dear Cinda....
