I’m putting this up on Veteran’s Day to thank all the veterans for their service to our country. Thank you for the freedoms that you have fought and served for, for all of us.

With this painting, I tried an animal for the first time. Also making the background in three pieces instead of all together. I’m hoping it gives a bit of interest. This is based on the donkey at our local petting park. On to the thought. . .

It is amazing to me that such a big God would want to make and have a relationship with each one of us. He made this little sphere we call home and put us on it, as well as all we would need to live here. For those of us going to heaven, eternity will not be long enough to explore all of Who God is. What an awesome God!
