Fall is in the Air


 It's been a family tradition to hike the "Herndon Head" in the fall.  

Our daughter and Son-in-law.  They were married in May of 2008.

We enjoy coming home to apple pie and potato soup.

This artistic creation hanging on the cellar door is something I found at the Hegins Arts and Craft Faire.
The artist who painted it started with a rusty peice of an old tin roof. She used the ridges as a guide to paint the stripes which represent our American flag.

Why one lonely star you might ask.  I like to think that the star represents God who is holding it all together in the midst of great turmoil, economic downfall and catastrophic disasters.  The rusty holes are a result of a nation who has turned it's back to God.

Removing prayer from our schools and our court rooms
has had an extremely negative effect on our Nation.

 My Christian ancestors would be surprised
 to see how much our society has changed.

This is a portion of my most recent work of art titled "If My People".

 It's purpose is to bring moral and
spiritual healing to our land.

      II Chronicles 7:14

“If my people which are called by my name

shall humble themselves

and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways

then will I hear from heaven and

will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

The painting was inspired by a letter which was written and published in the Wall Street Journal during the Great Depression of the 1930's. In that letter, the editor of the Journal said, “What this country needs to bring us out of the depression is not to build more factories, but... for men to go home early on Wednesday afternoon, hitch up the horse and buggy, get the whole family ready and go to the little white church in the grove of oak trees and attend Wednesday evening prayer meeting.”

With that letter in mind, I prayed for a week before beginning the painting, asking God to show me how to proceed. I wanted the painting to take us back to a simpler time and remind us to pray for our nation. It is my hope that you will want to display my latest work of art in your home and find a place of peace, rest and hope for the future.
