Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7

  1. The artwork you have chosen for this series is amazing!! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks, Janelle. Most of it comes from Web Gallery of Art ( http://www.wga.hu/ ) a great resource for public domain art. My oldest son and I had a discussion the other day because an art history professor he had at Ohio State did her research in Dutch paintings of the Virgin Mary, a particular favorite of mine. We wondered if any one person had been the subject of so much art, even Our Lord and Savior. I'd love to audit that art history class. Maybe some day!


I appreciate your comments -- sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself!
