Show & Tell Friday ~ Seattle Art

 

As of June 2017 Photobucket has blacked out all my photos that I had stored there and are holding them hostage. Hopefully I can update my photos on all the posts they have ruined, over 4000 of them.

This is a piece of art that I bought for our home away from home in California. It’s no secret that Dear and I regard our sojourn in California as temporary and the home we want to return to is in Seattle. We are trusting God in our sojourn and we have no idea how long it will be but we hope we will be able to return to Seattle again before too long. God has already taught us a lot and we will have to choose to continue to be content in what his plan and purpose is for us being here in California. In the meantime this work of art on our condo livingroom wall reminds us of our family and friends in Seattle. Dear and I will be in Seattle for Thanksgiving and then I will stay in Seattle till New Year’s Day. We are looking forward to our time there.

For more Show & Tell head on over to Kelli’s at There’s No Place Like Home.

  1. How neat to have in your “home away from home” a picture of Home! How neat to know that God always allows the detours in life – to build us and mold us.

    Happy Soujourning,
    Jane

  2. I am so grateful that we do not need to take boat trips to get to where we are ‘sojourning’ too.

    Beautiful painting. I do not know much about Seattle and California, but that harbour looks like a place in all the movies.

  3. The skyline of Seattle looks amazing! Seattle reminds me of Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan staring in “Sleepless in Seatle”. I loved that movie… ;-))

    How wonderful that you will soon be able to meet your family & friends!

    Have a great Friday!

  4. Now this art is making me want to hum the theme song from Frasier —-“Well, baby I hear the blues a’callin’ ——-tossed salad and scrambled eggs…oh my”!!

    Hope someday soon you two WILL be back in Seattle!! [Lovely city]

  5. First of all, let me wish you a happy stay. It is so soul filling to be with loved ones in places that hold dear memories for you!
    I understand your need to have asighting of your hometown at hand (in view, rather!).
    I am still looking for a map of the city where I lived in the UK, similar to the one that I had at my grandpa’s home. I’d love to have it over my desk to remind me of me youth.
    I share a work of art , too this week. You are welcome to visit.

  7. What a beautiful picture!
    I use to live in Seattle…and Kent…as a child, and just recently connected with a childhood friend from there who found me on my blog! Our family spent the weekend there this August and they went on the Space Needle for the first time. So much fun!
    I appreciated your thoughts on waiting for God’s timing. Blessings!

  8. Hi Ellen! What a wonderful picture – you know I adore the red touches in it. I will be praying with you and your dear as you are following Him for this time away from home. I hope that your holiday visit will be delightful and each day a special blessing. Love to you! Q

  9. What a beautiful picture and a great way to have a constant reminder of home.
    I wanted to tell you that I know you leave comments each week on my show and tells and when I try to return them your blog never wants to come up. Every week it seems I have the same problem so I came back to kellis place and it came up from here.
    Just wanted you to know that I am trying to comment!

  10. Beautiful picture! I have never been to Seattle, but it is always so lovely in pictures and on video, etc. I love seeing the mountain i the background.

    Gresat that you will be able to spend the holiday season at home in Seattle!

  11. That is a beautiful painting and great to have it in your other home. I’m sure you’ll get “the desire of your heart” someday to return there!
