Important Notice!!! We are currently dealing with a serious health crisis involving David. Computer time and blogging will be taking a backseat until we can get this situation under control and, hopefully, save his leg. Please bear with us as we go through this difficult time. Thank you for any prayers that you can offer up.

Also, if you'd love to help cheer him up, please subscribe to his YouTube channel. That would really make his day! The link is at the bottom of all of my posts.

Thank you and Merry Christmas to all of you!

Gratitude Journal Challenge

What piece of art are you grateful for?
 
I don’t have enough room on this blog post to give a full answer on this one. I will start with The Calling of St. Matthew by Caravaggio.

And for The Creation of Adam by Michelangelo.

But, I am most grateful for two paintings that were a big part of my childhood. One hung over the heater in our living room and the other was in our foyer, greeting people as they came in.

In the living room was The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci.

In the foyer was The Good Shepherd. I do not know the artists' name. There are several versions of this painting. I can't get a good picture of the one that is hanging in the foyer here at McClendon Villa, but it is like the one I grew up with. Here is a version that is similar:

Thank you, Heavenly Father, for bringing great, inspirational artwork into my life from a very young age.

David is doing the challenge, too. Please visit him over at Random Thoughts and Observations. Thanks!


I learned of this journalling challenge from Vanessa over at Vanessence.
