Every Day Matters

 Missing in action, once again!  This time...hospital.  I was admitted late Thursday evening with some form of infection and a raging temperature.  Antibiotic IV drips, along with several other medications did help.  The white blood cell count dropped dramatically.   Then, as they rose to some normality with the help of injections there was an issue with the platelets.  A blood transfusion seems to have corrected that.  I now have a picc line fitted as taking blood was becoming an issue.  Thankfully I am now at home with the Hospital at Home Service.  This means that I am still under the care of the hospital who will provide and supervise any treatment I need.  I am so thankful.  I was looked after by some amazing people with compassion and respect but nothing beats your own home and the love that is in it.

My journey both experimenting with mixed media and my prayer book continues.  



The fun I am having, just sketching the various flowers fills me with joy.  Such simple things.


I have changed the order, mixed things up a little.  Decoupage first then sketching the outline, watercolour, ink and finally a letter stamp.  The focus of course is on the word, rejoicing and receiving Gods love.  



I am so thankful and feel blessed that we were able to fulfil our dreams of living on this beautiful Island.  The views and the beauty that I am surrounded by is spectacular, a gift from God.  As I arrived home from hospital yesterday I was given a special welcome home a incredible rainbow.


I will close for now and wish you all a bright and beautiful day.  Make every moment matter and fulfil your dreams.

See you soon.

  7. The picc line will prove a blessing eliminating a lot of pokes. No one likes pokes.

    Goodness, you have been through the wringer. So glad that you have been straightened around again and that you can be home. Home is always good!

    Love your art work and the way you focus on Scripture with it. It makes a profound statement.

    Have a good week!
