#Art #Painting "Jo and Anna"

I have hardly done any paintings this year, 
(and I sometimes wish I was a painter, and not a sales guy) 

Now, I am no good at portraits but this is an important subject for me

And I must paint 

I've only done three portraits till now, one of Jesus, another of a former colleagues three year old, and this is my third 

Truth is, they look a lot more beautiful in real life

#Pastor A good shepherd may move from one pasture to another, but he will never leave his sheep

Just thought about this and sketched this now!

♪ The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind, the answer is blowin' in the wind - Bob Dylan

 How many seas must a white dove sail 
Before she sleeps in the sand? 
Yes, and how many times can a man turn his head
Pretending he just doesn't see?

Truth is, my soul finds #rest in GOD alone. ♪ Listening to Psalm 62

 "The fields of hope in which I sow,
Are harvested in heaven ...

... Though life is but a fleeting breath,
A sigh too brief to measure,
My King has crushed the curse of death
And I am HIS forever"

♫ Love Shirley Bassey and I always imagine singing these lyrics to GOD

My favourite version of the song 

♫ The sweet love story that is older than the sea
The simple truth about the love he brings to me ...

He fills my heart with very special things
With angels songs, with wild imaginings
He fills my soul with so much love
That anywhere I go, I'm never lonely
With him along, who could be lonely
I reach for his hand, it's always there

I know it's tea time, but where did you get the cookie from?

And my GOD will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus

#Photography #Life #Truth How we perceive reflections depends on our point of view

If I only showed you the first picture below, with the brief attention span that most of us have, you may not realize that you are looking at an inverted image (upside down)

Here is the real picture


Could this be true of how we view life too?

If how we perceive the truth, and reflections of it, depends on our point of view, then are we viewing stuff upside down? 

Life as Canon and I see it

I must learn how to relax like this squirrel

#Equality Lion or lamb, every individual is equal before and under the #law ...

... and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination

What shall I wear today? #Armour ☺ Stand firm then, with the belt of #truth ...

 ... buckled around your waist, with the breatplate of rightousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes with the gospel of peace

In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit, which is the word of GOD 
- Ephesians 6:14-17

#Poetry The Leaves are Falling

The Leaves are Falling

The leaves are falling
And the squirrel and the cardinals are feeding
The flight of the geese and nature's sounds are now affirming
That 'tis time for the season in my life to be changing

When I think of tomorrow, my #hope comes from HIM who has brought me this far today

And this song comes to mind 

"O GOD our help in ages past, our hope for years to come" - Isaac Watts (1719)

A thousand ages in thy sight, are like an evening gone ...
