I'm a small animal veterinarian, in practice since 1985 with a wonderfully patient computer engineer husband. Away from the hospital I've studied drawing and painting in watercolor and acrylic. To create works of art on paper, wood or clay of my favorite creatures is a joy and a challenge. Through all my life and work, God has woven His love and called me to love Him and others with all my being. Since I fail often, sometimes mightily, I am grateful for His provision: of forgiveness through Jesus death, peace through His presence and strength from the Spirit. This year I started a journal to record events, memories and thoughts as I strive to become increasingly aware of the Father's loving work in and around me every day.
