I See…

If then you have been raised with Christ,  seek the things that are above, where Christ sits, at the right hand of God.  Set your mind on things above and not on things on the earth. ~ Colossians 3:1-2

When I see sunrays coming through the clouds, I get a glimpse of glory.


As I took these pictures, in the past couple of weeks, I could see and feel God’s glory in creation itself.

The week before Easter, I awoke one morning with this image in my head and began to paint.  Because of things going on in life… it has taken me awhile to get it done.  Finally finished it on Tuesday.


As I’ve studied the two verses at the beginning of the blog this week, some other verses came to me in a webinar I participated in; by Matt Tommey.

If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire and it shall be done for you.  By this My Father  is glorified , that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples. ~ John 15:7-8

So the priorities are… seek those things that are above.  Seek God.  Abide with Him, learn His words and keep them close, in your heart, your mind, and your spirit.



PS… just a reminder… there are some great gift ideas for Mother’s day on my Avon website.  Check them out.  www.youravon.com/sparham

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
