SCRIBBLE PICNIC ~ TREE

The Old Oak Tree ~ Christmas 2000

The word for Scribble Picnic this week is "Tree".  I've been out of town and came home to a very busy week and I remembered the Christmas Card I designed for 2000 of an old oak tree.  This is one of my favorite paintings so sharing it with you this week for "Tree".

To see all the other "Trees" just click on the Scribble Picnic Badge on my sidebar.

    1. Thank you so much Mary. I love that scene....probably why it was a favorite of my Christmas Cards. My inspiration for the tree was from an Watercolor Artist I loved. Tony Crouch.

  13. Wanda,
    That is delightful and I can see why you said it was your favourite. I love the retaining of white for the snow and the red buildings put in the colour. Lovely.
    Blessings

    BTW, the new themes are up for the week, should you want to see those.

    P.S. I would apprecaite it if you adn your hubs can make amoment to pray for my mother, Ann, who has ben given days to a few months, tops, to live. She is in a lot of pain and am had to ahve a bunch of necrotic tissue cut out of her bum from bed sore which are now not healing as well as all her leg issues. She is suffering. I am sinply praying she realease wahtever it is she has to release to God so her time is truly up and she can go and be freed form her suffering. We will be flying out there soon, I suspect. Thank you.

    1. Oh dear Michael, my heart is breaking for you and the pain you are feeling now for your mum. Don and I stopped just now and spent some time in prayer for her. Praying the Lord will ease her pain and suffering, and the angels will come and gently carry her home. We will continue holding all of you in our hearts and prayers. Love you and Alex so much.

    2. Thank you so much, I knew you would. You are like us--when we hear of a need, we stop right then and there and pray for whoever/ whatever! :)

    3. I will add my prayers also, Michael. Very sorry to hear this latest news on your Mum. I knew she wasn't doing well hence your stay in England last year. It's a tough road when our elderly parents near their time to leave this world. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Alex, and the family also.

    5. Awww... thank you. My mother slipped into unconsciousness today so I cam home to "talk" to her via videothrough my niece's phone--FIRST tiem doing that. I told her I loved her etc and she seemed to grunt through her watery chest breathing. It is close.

    6. Michael–Adding my prayers to those for your mother, and for you and your family.

    7. Michael, I'm so glad you were able to speak to your Mum via the magic of technology. When my Dad lost consciousness on his final day, we played songs we grew up with. Songs that meant something to him and, though we thought he couldn't hear us, he shed tears when we played the song "After All These Years" by Foster and Allen...one of his favourites. It was a very emotional moment for us knowing that he could hear us. I'm crying as I even write this. Just know that, while your Mum may have seemed out of it, she would have known you were 'there'.

    8. Wanda - Michael and Alex are indeed special and caring people. Blessings to you also.

    9. Serena ~ Thank you for your caring heart and precious words of encouragement to Michael and Alexandra. I'm so happy Michael was able to talk to his mum too. Blessings to you for your loving concern.

    10. Michael, I'm so thrilled you were able to speak to your mum. I'm so sure she heard your words and your love will be so precious to her even though you are miles apart. Heart to Heart..miles don't matter. You and your mum and family are in my heart and prayers. Loving you.
