HAPPY NEW YEAR ~ Thank You Friends


Dear Friends
I am blessed by so many caring a loving bloggers.
Thank you so much for your heart felt love as you shared with
me during the passing of my 96 year old gram's!

What a special time I had with my family as I was
able to fly out to Boise and attend her funeral.  She is with JESUS
we know this for sure and that makes her home going a
celebration!  We shared so many wonderful memories together
and your prayers were certainly felt.

I want to wish my followers and friends a
VERY Happy New Year. 
May your lives be blessed in 2011.

I have so much to be thankful for this past year.  God heard my
prayers and gave my hubby a job in September, PTL!!!  We celebrated
24 years of wedded bliss together in August.  Saw my only
child, graduate with honors from High School
 and now is attending University where
she is excelling there as well. 
My cup runneth over!

I hope to create and once again paint more roses.  It was very
hard to do during the past few year and I did what I could. 
 I can sense that I have destressed, let go of,
and am moving forward...
yes, and I am itching to get back to my studio and begin, once again
to create from my heart!

Come join the journey with me my sweet friends!

Blessings...Lorena

Dear Lorena,

My heart goes out to you for the loss of your beloved Gram. She's now with all her loved ones and perhaps has met my Mom by now. I pray for your sadness to soon be the joy that she is with our savior. I'm so happy to hear you were able to be with your family during her funeral.
May the Lord bless you and yours during this New Year of 2011!

Love & hugs, Sherry
