September 15, 2012. Sketching in San Lorenzo this morning, near my son's school. There's nothing like a Saturday morning and time to sketch, especially after a busy and somewhat stressful week. We attended a charity dinner last night for a group that ministers to abused kids in third world countries. A praise band from a school in San Jose provided the music. It was a powerful time of thanking God for his love, and even though I was tired out, the music filled me with new strength and vision. God is doing great things around the world, and it is always a privilege to reach out in love in His name.
