Starting The Holy Spirit Garden

April 22, 2011

Without my favorite helpers I started the holy spirit garden today. On Good Friday! Amanda, Nadia, and Nico are not here to help but they are in my heart. Of course I always planted the garden for my mother, Granny and so I’m sure she is sitting here somewhere observing and advising. I know she will approve!

For those of you who have not heard of the holy spirit garden you can find it in the book, “The Shack”. A great book about developing a understand of God and how bad things happen to good people. I have read the book several times and it always shares something new.

Anyway, I am also starting a painting this weekend called, : The Garden Behind The Shack”. This is another one of my flower paintings.  Look for it this weekend.

Also, check back and see the development of the garden.  Please understand I am not a gardener, but I love color … so the garden will have color.

This garden is for Josh, Amanda, Nadia, Nico, Michael, and of course Granny.

The first stage of the garden..

Oh of course reds and oranges

Another Great Day of Sailing on Lake Guntersville

April 18, 2011

I love this time of year… when everything is fresh and new. Spent the day on the water at Lake Guntersville and just a wonderful day of sailing.

The wind was perfect!

Sporting my Australian shirt and a Seattle Seahawk cap. Shortly after this photo the hat disappeared into the lake.

Cafe Berlin has a new “updated” Logo

April 7, 2011

Anya said, she would like for her logo at Cafe Berlin to take on a fresher and happier look.   A great restaurant in Huntsville, AL.

So Ann Steverson and I went to work keeping the same font but moving things around a bit and placing a new waiter in the logo.

We agreed the waiter would fit nicely into the name.  Anya was pleased!

If you havent been to Cafe Berlin stop in and check out their expanded menu.

Great place to eat and they have expanded their menu!
