My Hobbies

To my friends who have enquired about how my retirement is going, I wanted to share a few photos of some hobby activity that I enjoy. You will notice that I have included some pens, as I enjoy pen turning these days. I have also included some pictures of craft crosses I have made. I enjoy making them as a reminder of what Christ did for us on the cross to make the way for God’s redeeming grace in our lives. In addition, I included some pictures of some trim work that I have done in our home. I added a few pictures of a bed that I made for a spare bedroom where some of our grandsons sleep on their visits with us. I hope you will find these enjoyable to look at. I give God the praise for whatever He does through my life in retirement, just as I did when I was involved in ministry full-time for over 40 years. There are a few pictures of a wheelchair attachment, made like Cinderella’s carriage, that I made for the Make a Wish people in TN. It was for a little four year girl who is ill. I have also constructed some video lighting for making some brief videos for my teaching ministry to be posted on this site.

The painting in my logo is by an artist named Kelly O'Neill.

If you appreciate excellence in art and are captivated by works that grip your emotions and proclaim the remarkable truths of God’s Word, you will want to know more about the very compelling art piece that is part of my ministry logo.

Kelly O’Neill is a remarkable young artist who very masterfully depicts the compassion, grace, and redeeming love of Jesus Christ in her painting, “Redeemed.” No painting has so grabbed my emotions and stirred my gratitude to Christ for His redeeming love as this one. Technically unparalleled, inspired, heart-stirring, and mind captivating are words I used upon seeing it for the first time.

Getting to know Kelly and the background of her wonderful work have served as great motivators as I launch out on a new ministry path in my own life. Kelly is also the developer of my website.

I commend her and her work to you and encourage you to visit her website www.TheArtistOfLife.com
