A painting for Glynnis

Glynnis had the picture and I’ve put the paint on canvas!

I met Glynnis as the superintendent of our Sundayschool. She has done this for years and is now taking a well-deserved break. We all remember the concerts she organized with our kids as the actors. Thank you, Glynnis!!

…I don’t think she would want me to write about her… : ) And not that I’m good with words anyway…

So I won’t tell you what a lovely lady she is. No, I won’t. I could tell you that she has been studying for the last how many years. And that was not as a full-time student! No, she studied while working and caring for her sons and everything woman with houses are supposed to do! Soon she will finish her masters degree. I should not tell you what a beautiful person she is, she won’t like that… But she is, on the outside and on the inside.

Glynnis, I pray for you to be the girl on the swing. Secure and filled with joy!

  1. WOW!!!!! You are painting! I absolutely love this. Whimsical, soft, and free!
    Because Glynnis wouldn’t like us talking about her, I just will tell you that it is refreshing to read about someone who is caring, studious and responsible! :) Have a great day!

    • Hi Leslie. I AM painting and that’s why my weekly sketches have stopped, but I will get to that again. Thanks for your visits! Cecily

    Hierdie is baie spesiaal, Cecily. Vir my is dit “progress” – seker nou nie in die sin van skilderwerk nie, hoewel ek dit ook darem bietjie kan raaksien – ander mense sal daaroor beter weet. Maar van die wind wil vang…, swaai oor die wêreld, en om so vol vreugde te wees met God in beheer… Dit is ‘n storie. Wat ek eien. Dankie. & Happy painting!

  3. Hi Cecily
    It is good to see you painting again. This is a lovely picture of grace. What a blessing for your friend.
    Lekker dag verder
