My First Oil Painting

This is my first ever oil painting. I got a Bob Ross oil painting kit for Christmas and up until this point a was to afraid to use it but Saturday I decided to give it a try. I really enjoyed it. It was really messy but worth all the clean up. Bob Ross is my new hero!!!! I love my happy little trees.

My Baby Sister is now a Married Woman

On Saturday August First my baby sister Desi married Mike my very sweet now official brother (although he has been like a little brother to me for years). The wedding ceremony was beautiful I do no think they was a pair of dry eyes in the hole crowd. The reception was the party of they year!!! We had amazing food and danced the night away. Desi and Mike I am so happy for you two and I know that you will have an amazing marriage. I feel so blessed that I could be apart of your wonderful day. I would like to leave this very well know passage that was read at mine and Eddie's wedding for Desi and Mike as they start a new chapter in their lives together and for all those married people out their as a reminder of what love is........

1If I speak in the tongues[a] of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames,[b] but have not love, I gain nothing.

4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

8Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. 11When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. 12Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

13And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

1 Corinthians 13 (New International Version)

I leave you all with some Bridals of Destiny taken by my other talented sister Beckah.......

The Death of a Legend

On Tuesday August fourth 2009 I buried my dear sweet Stickers. For all of you who have no clue who Stickers is he was my tree frog I have had for almost 9 year ( it would have been nine on my birthday). Growing up I was all about frogs and all I ever wanted was to own one, well as a gift for my 18th birthday my parents gave me the money to go out and buy one. I knew Stickers was the one when the pet store helper opened the cage full of about 10 tree frogs and he jumped on me, scaring me half to death and yes I even let out a scream. And that is how he got his name even. The coolest thing about him was that he would change colors from a bright green to a dark purple. No worries I am ok. I am handling things very well.
