* "Keeper of the Faith"

Today she introduced herself.  "Keeper of the Faith" she said.  When you aren't feeling strong and you think nothing is ever going to be right again, I will have enough faith for both of us.  I have light to share.  You won't get lost.  I have strength.  You can have extra whenever you need some.  I have music.  That will cheer you up.  And most of all, I have unwavering faith that everything is going to be OK.  I will hold that until you can feel it again.

I worked on her some more today.

I'm so happy when you drop by, my lovelies. Thank you for your comments.  Have a wonderful day.  

Be like the bird that, passing on her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing that she hath wings. – Victor Hugo


  1. She is soooooooooooo beautiful, Donna. Love her cape with stares and moons, and the lit candle. Her hair is great,too. I think she will be keeping you company and looking after you! Have a nice day, hugs, Valerie

  2. She is absolutely gorgeous and I love the title of it. When things get tough.......just keep the Faith and it will be okay.

  3. Donna, Donna, Donna..... seriously this is completely amazing!! I can't stop looking at her.... totally my favorite of all your work so far. She is a force to be reckoned with. And a powerful companion for you!!

  4. I like all the elements in this piece, the concept, the colors... all of it!

  5. She has popped into your life exactly when you need her.
    Notice that twinkle in her eye?
    Love, Diane

  6. You have no idea how much I needed those words and her faith today. Thank you for sending her strong spirit out into the world.

  7. See what I miss when I can't access the blogs for a couple of days. I really do like the "Keeper of the Faith." I think she will be a favorite of mine. Without faith where would we be, Donna.

    We had an ongoing conversation with our internet provider trying to get us up and running. Why is it they think we haven't attempted all of the recommended steps to fix it ourselves, asking us to do them all over again while they wait on the phone? BOTTOM LINE -- they had to send a repairman out to repair the line into our home. NOTHING WE COULD HAVE FIXED or CAUSED. So frustrating.

    TOMORROW back out in the yard.

    HOPE YOUR DAY HAS NOT BEEN AS FRUSTRATING and your "Keeper of the Faith" will help you stay on track, relaxed knowing that all will be well.
