“Asheville’s Winter Son”

At the risk of seeming narcissistic, I drew this picture of myself for my dad’s birthday.  Happy Birthday Poppy!

Last Winter Martha Jo and I went on vacation and stayed at the beautiful Grove Park Inn (click to see it) in Asheville, North Carolina (thanks again to the Arnebergs for this incredible gift!).  The Inn has a huge stone back porch that overlooks the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains.  It boasts a breath-taking view.  In the drawing I am sitting in a rocker, staring at the sun setting over the mountains, and smiling a the beauty that I see.  It was a moment of brilliant color and intricate design that filled me with wonder at our marvelous artist Christ, who spoke all of creation into existence and holds it together in the palm of His hands.  I can’t wait to someday see even more of the glories that God has made for us to behold…

“No eye has seen, and no ear has heard, and no human mind has conceived the things God has prepared for those who love him—”   (I Corinthians 2:9)
