Goodbye 2012 ... Hello 2013


Goodbye 2012 … Hello 2013!
... 2012 taught me just how short life is, so for me for 2013 … I pray that I will be a bit more grateful, patient, brave, creative and more understanding.  I pray that I will be less judgmental and eat less pasta.  I pray that I will continue to be healthy enough.  I pray that I will continue to be warm and dry and have a roof over my head.  I pray that I will always have what I need and have the ability to work hard for what I want.  I pray for more quality time to spend with family and friends.  I pray that I can somehow make a positive difference in this world.  I pray that I do not put off the things I want to do, for another day may not come.  I pray for peace … and if these things work for you, I pray for them for you too. 
thankful for YOU and praying that your wishes come true in 2013

in remembrance of the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School

this piece started out on a legal pad
just after Thanksgiving

my first painting on an 8" wooden round paint panel

the panels are made by American Easel, llc
and are made in the U.S.A.

purchased from Dick Blick

I thought it was done on Wednesday, December 12th
after I painted 18 stars across the top.
After Friday, December 14th ... I added 2 more stars, in remembrance of the 20 bright little children that were lost that day from this earth during the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy in Connecticut. 

with my own version of the words of Luke from the Bible ...

 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace,
good will toward men. ~ Luke 2:14
King James Version (KJV)

Prayers for the Sandy Hook Elementary School Families
