First Spirtual Sunday post...

A picture from Heaven...
Ginger from Enchanted Cottage & Charlotte from At Home in Scottsdale came up with a such a wonderful idea... They are co-hosting a blog called Spirtual Sundays. I believe it will warm the hearts of many...

My post is about a picture painted for my husband & myself. As a wedding gift we asked my mother-in-law to paint us a picture of what she thought heaven would look like. This was her vision....

Little did we know then that she would leave this world within 5 years of giving us this beautiful wedding gift...Cancer had taken her in a short 4 month period. I love this beautiful painting~ so dear to my heart, and it is displayed in our foyer.... Today I think of her everyday & miss her dearly...
