Every craft fair has a theme to me.
It might be the types of questions I get asked. (Like, “Do you have any angels?” or just the fact that people are in my booth sharing their emotions. There’s no doubt that doing craft fairs has many benefits if you’re an artist.
In this round up I reflect on some of blessings.
Yesterday we met people who were fighting terrible illnesses, who spoke of children with cancer, who talked of the pain of losing loved ones, and I pray that each of them find comfort and peace. We can all relate to these things, can't we? We have all dealt with difficult hardships and perhaps some of us are struggling right now. ____________ I know this: God sees you. He is with you. ______________ I know this because there were plenty of times I thought he wasn't, but in looking back I could see him there. It was only when he had helped me rise above the pain that I could finally see him working in my life during those times. ____________ I am thinking of this verse today and hope that it provides you comfort: ____________ Psalm 34:18 "The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit."
This painting seems to sum up today: “She loved the people God put in her path knowing they were there for a reason.” _____________ So many stories today. So many people celebrating life’s joys and also struggling with the lows. I am grateful to each person who came out, from my beautiful friend Jan to the ones I just met today. May you all be blessed. 🙏🏻
Our dogs love us! They protect us and become part of our family from the minute they walk those cute little paws through our door. ____________ Vibrant pinks and purples help tell the story in this visual poetry piece, with the words “delighted happy fondness for the family” in the center of this little doggie’s heart. _____________ https://www.cherieburbach.com/product/delighted-happy-fondness/
