Beautiful blessings from God! God is good!


It's me ...Mavis said...

Why is it that little boys like drawing moustaches on their faces? My son use to do the same thing with my eyeliner pencil :)

Lady Farmer said...

Bountiful Blessings, indeed, Camille! And what awesome art by your Dad! ;~P

Jenny said...

What a beautiful picture your dad drew. I enjoyed my visit here today. Blessings...

Christa said...

The pictures are wonderful! We have so much to be thankful for when we have the Lord don't we?
Have a blessed week my friend,


Camille said...

Nadine ~ You are so right...God is Wonderful!! :)

Mavis ~ LOL...I am just so glad it was the washable felt he used and not the "sharpie"! And I told him what your boy did and warned him that my make-up is off limits! :)

Lady Farmer ~ Thank you! I suppose I always took forgranted my Dad's artistic abilities...until I was grown up. He kindly gave us this picture a few years back ~ it's the original and we are so happy to have it in our home. :)

Jenny ~ Thanks for stopping by! Your blog is such a lovely place to visit...I would love to comment there, but do understand what you are seeking to accomplish. Have a lovely day!

Christa ~ Absolutely! We have SO much to be thankful for when we have the Lord! In fact ~ to quote my Emma, "Mummy, you are blessed ~ even if you don't feel blessed, you are ~ because of the Lord!" Out of the mouths of babes...

May the Lord bless you all today!
