I'm so glad you've stopped by my blog! I am a Women's Minister and a former Pastor's Wife. I love finding God in my regular-everyday-stuff. I struggle with keeping up with the laundry, I love blogging, and my kids are my first line of ministry. I am recently widowed. So God and I are on a brand new journey as I try to find peace and understanding. Please grab a cup of coffee and let's get to know one another as we journey on our faith walk together.

Improved Drawings

My children LOVE to draw pictures for me; especially my 6 year old daughter.  She always has from the time she could really hold a crayon well.  She LOVES to draw pictures of our family or her friends, and now she can write their names on them as well.

I am CONSTANTLY picking up all over the house these "treasures"!  I might need a tutorial on just how many of these I need to keep - but that is a post for a whole other day!

However, I have noticed something about her pictures over the past few years.  One, they're getting better and better and two, they are getting more accurate in size proportions!  When she first started drawing pictures of people's bodies, well, the face was very pronounced but the other parts were very small.  I would love to share a cup of coffee with you and hear about the wonderful masterpieces that your 2 or 3 year-old created as well.  I'm sure it would make us smile with a great big heart as we remember those younger years.

In scripture this morning I saw an example of how we too can have a wrong estimation of what God looks like - how we draw Him wrong in our mind.

Thank you for visiting my blog yesterday, and for your sweet comment :-)

Your post got me thinking about how quickly our children grow. I too, have children who love to draw and craft, and it is a great pleasure of mine to see the progress they make.

Hope you have a lovely day,
