The first week of July we were able to fellowship with dear friends, visit the Gettysburg battlefield, and see the Civil War Museum.


After recovering from from a nasty bug, I worked on sketching and drawing the cover of the story book Bible cover.


A bit of nature keeps itself occupied on my desk while I work.  Except George.

He’s really high maintenance.


Now that I’ve finished the cover drawing for the story book Bible, I’ll be spending this next week painting, and then Emily Rose will get it ready to send to the publisher.

What gain has the worker from his toil?
I have seen the business that God has given to the children of man to be busy with.
He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart,
yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.
I perceived that there is nothing better for them than to be joyful
and to do good as long as they live;

also that everyone should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil
—this is God’s gift to man.

Ecclesiastes 3:9-13
