Palindrome Girl Hannah lets us know she's not happy with some aspects of the design because of how it relates to the passage. Joe, signed on to teach not paint, announces "I'd like to try painting," and does. Getting Pat not to overdo is a constant struggle, but the girl's gotta do what -- as she said yesterday -- she was born to do. Yeah, she's paying the price bigtime today, but how can we possibly ask her not to DO art.
It's all good. I'm glad they bring something to the table.
My favorite of the day yesterday: Our neighbor John was curious about the doings in our garage (studio) the night before. (Wow, Kevin's actually cleaning the place up!) Hearing about the project, he commented that he likes to draw, too, but not things we would be interested in, like skulls and stuff. So the next day Dave invited John to design a specific piece of the mural using what he likes to do. And John's already been working on it. Couldn't get ever get John to come hear me preach because church just is NOT a place he feels comfortable -- but this he does! Terrific. [I'm not telling tales out of school here. Barb will likely read this and show John, so let me be the first to say, "John, we're glad to have you!"]
And if you're wondering how "skulls and stuff" fits with "The Lord is my shephered" from Psalm 23 -- stay tuned!

And shout outs to Pat, Joe, Dave, Hannah, and John for the obvious. Guess I'll look elsewhere for minions.
