Are you Up or Down?

Here is my finished canvas.
Thank you to all who gave me suggestions 
last week.
I tried covering up her arm with a shawl,
but the too small hand could still be seen 
and it bothered me.
So I just made another hand,
and used the "Shawl"
to decorate her dress!

The title of my work is Psalm 16.
"The boundary lines have
fallen for me in pleasant places.
Surely I have a delightful inheritance."

This is what is on my journal page.
St. Paul is rather harassed by his sinful ways!
"Miserable one that I am!
Who will deliver me from this mortal body?"

Sometimes we are up,
and sometimes we are down.
Some days we feel blessed, 
everything is going good,
and sometimes we feel miserable like St. Paul!

Whatever we feel, 
we should always remember 
that God is journeying with us!

  19. "Sometimes we are up,
    and sometimes we are down.
    Some days we feel blessed,

    and sometimes we feel miserable like St. Paul!"
