Happy Mother’s Day

I don’t usually like to post on Sundays, but today my heart is filled with so much love and happiness that I just want to share some of it with you, my online friends.

I hope your home is filled with kind words of love and loud shouts of children’s playing voices.   I hope you get slightly burnt toast, hand drawn cards from school, and paper flowers.

I hope you think on the memories of your own dear mother and forgive hers and your faults, and focus on her tender care of you.  I hope she is still around so you can give her a tender hug filled with love and gratitude.

I hope your beautiful children call you, or better yet, come by and fill your home with grandchildren crawling or running around and getting into everything.  I hope your home is filled with the music of love permeating all around you.

The words of this song have been playing through my mind all morning.  I hope you don’t mind if I share them with you–

“I see my mother kneeling with our family each day

I hear the words she whispers as she bows her head to pray

Her pleas to the Father quiet all my fears

And I am thankful- LOVE is spoken here.”

Happy Mother’s Day!

Free Word Art!

My iPad is out of memory.  It is such a bummer because I use my iPad A LOT!   Because I have the most wonderful, fantabulous, handsome husband in the world, he surprised me with an early combination Mother’s Day, birthday present- an iPad Pro!

I have been staying up into the wee hours of the morning playing and learning some of the fun things I can do on it.  A few of  my  favorite apps from my old iPad are:

  • Key Note–  I make Power Point type lessons for my Sunday school lessons, and memory books of our vacations here.  
  • Next Note-  I download my piano music here.  I have all of my church prelude music in one easy place. I have all of my sheet music with me all of the time, –AWESOMENESS!!  And since the iPad Pro is so big, now I can see it very easily:)

But my new iPad Pro favorite app is called Procreate.  It makes my Apple Pencil sing!  I have been using my crochet time in the evening to play with it. 

 So…instead of being able to show you a finished baby blanket—here are a few of the word art pictures I have been working on.  They are free for you to download and use them as you would like:) 





As you can see, I have been having too much fun and probably wasting too much time.  But it is so incredibly addictive!!

Life is definitely SWEET around my house:)  I hope you like the art and many happy blessings to you and yours!
