Visit Ephrata Pennsylvania and step back into a society of German sanctuary of Conrad Beissel.  He continued his spiritual pilgrimage here in 1732. The Ephrata Cloister is a peaceful reminder of people seeking religious freedom.  
It was a life of study, work and prayer.

A peaceful place to reflect how blessed we are

Hope your travels are safe. Di

Fall is in the air

We had a fall outdoor market and saw some beautiful items and then it rained
My booth was under two wonderful trees and the breeze was glorious. My hubby helped me and we had a nice morning. 
My banners and prayer flags fluttered their blessings into the air. We had found the vintage drying rack on our way to Philadelphia 

We really had a good time until that rain storm and then it was sunny and clear , after we packed up!
Hope your day is clear...we have a hurricane coming but should just have lots of rain in the mountains. We pray for everyone in the path. Di

I hope your day is good and you enjoy every bit of this Father's day.

 I love this song by Barbars Streisand
I believe for every drop of rain that falls
a flower grows
I believe that somewhere in the darkest night
a candle glows
I believe for every one who goes astray
someone will come
to show the way
I believe
I believe
I believe above the storm a smallest prayer
will still be heard
and I believe that someone in the great somewhere
his everyword
everytime I hear a newborn baby cry
or touch a leaf
or see a star
then I know why
I believe
When you walk
through a storm
hold your head up high
and don't be afraid
of the dark
at the end of the storm
is a golden sky
and the sweet silver song of a lark
walk on through the wind
walk on through the rain
though your dreams be tossed
and blown
walk on
walk on
with hope in your heart
and you'll never walk alone
you'll never walk alone
you'll never walk alone
Love Di

Prayer flags

My prayer is for peace
The peace that comes to all
The peace that was won by our loved ones...freedom by our veterans 
Memorial, to remember those that gave so much for us to gain everything 
May this day be set aside to gingerly remember 
Love Di

Painting Images

Creating is hard work sometimes.  I am taking an on line art class which is stretching my skills.
I was lucky to win the 2018 Paint your Heart and Soul series by Olga Furman.  Thanks Kate Thompson,, I also won a class from her!

I want to be able to take my photos and transfer my interpretation to paint.  Right now I am working with watercolor and acrylics.  I can't wait to take what I am learning and start my masterpieces!  Beautiful waterfalls, beaches and skyscapes  are abound in the Carolina's

 My favorite subjects are my beautiful grandboys!

                                           And the mountains, the colors are so beautiful!
                                                 The fog, clouds and mist fasinate me
                                        There are so many unique places to visit and capture
 Capturing a peaceful and charming setting is always a fun way to paint

These pictures were at the Biltmore.  I always enjoy going there.

What places are your favorites to create?
