Mind Colors

My latest painting! I'm getting braver with paint and it is easier to paint what I feel. This was my "color" self portrait. This is a painting of my mind. lol My mom was concerned that the black heart meant something. It does not. I like the clack against the bold colors.

The post below is a great post, I don't know how to get it to be normal size but please read it anyway. :) I'm still learning everyday about writing!

Blessing Bags!

My friend Lisa Moore posted this list on her Facebook page. Whenever you pass someone who is homeless, hand them a blessing bag from you car. Let them know we see them as people. :)
hand it to them with a note of encouragement along with some scriptures including in the “blessing bag”

I thought it was a great idea so wanted to pass it along.

Put in Gallon size Ziplock bags

Items to go in the bags, such as:

Chap Stick

Packages of tissues

Toothbrush and toothpaste



Trail mix

Granola bars

Peanut butter or cheese crackers

Pack of gum

Band aids


Hand wipes

A note of encouragement with scripture

Add extras:

Coins (could be used to make a phone call to a love one, or purchase a food item)

A warm pair of socks or gloves

McDonalds gift card for warm coffee
