Soccer, Visiting, Thief and Art

Hello Friends,

Thank you so much for the encouragement I received for "getting back on the horse" in my first post in a long time!!!  Thank you especially to Don, Brenda and Linda!  Your words will stay in my heart!

The picture above was taken tonight when my daughter and her two girls stopped by for an impromptu visit after attending a Christian family concert at a farm tonight.  We had a good time taking some pictures and visiting with each other hugging and painting and just enjoying our time together.  My daughter is in her late 30's and proves you never get too hold to get some special love from dad!

This morning I went to my grandchildrens soccer games.  Four of my grandchildren were playing.  The first one I went to was my grandson's and then my middle granddaughters.  Since three of them played at the same time, I had to pick which one.  Their dad is the coach for the oldest, and their mom watched the youngest, so I got to watch my grandson.

I almost always take my little Kendell dog with me to the games.
Note she rides in the car with a seat belt, just in case!

And she always rides in style in her own stroller! 
Kendell gets lots of attention!

After the games I was invited to my son in laws family reunion which was also in the park.  They had a very big turn out and I must say they fixed some really good food!!!  My favorite was this broccoli salad!  Yum!!!

Since I will be sharing my art, I thought I'd tell you I'm into making these little ATC's which means, Art Trading Cards.  I'm trying to make some everyday.  They are a standard size of 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches.  The pictures I shared yesterday are ATC's, and here are two I made today.

This one is called "1000 Cities"

This one is called "Letters and Numbers".

While we were at the family reunion, my daughter's van was vandalized and they stole her wallet.  They had to report it to the police and report all the credit/bank cards and work ID's beside the cash stolen.  This is everyone's nightmare.  One misfortune of not locking the van, and this happened with loads of people around.  Praying for the thief to be caught and for them to be repentant of their crime.

How are you doing?  I would love to hear from you!  So happy to be back to keeping in touch!
God's blessings!  


  1. Hi Cathy, I enjoyed reading your story about your family. Such a shame you can't even trust people around a soccer game. I really like your "Art Trading Cards." I don't think I've heard of them before. Sounds interesting.

    Just wanted to say thank you again for your prayers through the Hurricane and also the personal situation of my family. It is greatly appreciated.

    1. Thank you Monna! You are welcome for all the prayers...that is what we do for friends in need!

  2. Hi Cathy, Looks like a lot of fun today and tonight. Your "D" has had quite a busy day. And every girl always likes a little attention from "Dad." It's nice that they can still enjoy some time together. Your pictures are wonderful... look forward to watching everything you're doing. And so sorry to here about the theft of the wallet. I sure hope your gkids won their games.

    We had a nice service at church today. Series Title: My Big Fat Mouth. This week's topic: Criticism. As always, a great message.

    1. Thank you BG! Sounds like that is a very interesting Series! Lessons to learn for sure!


Thank you for your comment. Have a blessed day!
