Happy Birthday Kansas!

Today commemorates the date that my home state Kansas joined the United States.  Kansas is often underappreciated, so I am making an exception to my usual schedule to give a nod of gratitude to the place I live.

The best thing of course is the people.  For the most part they are kind and friendly and I feel blessed to rub shoulders with them.  I also feel blessed that there is space between people when I so choose!  I live near a small town with little traffic and no lines at the store, or bank…. where of course everyone knows your name.


My second favorite thing about Kansas is the sky.  It is huge!  The sunrises and sunsets are beautiful, and the stars are bright and numerous.  We have majestic displays of all kinds of cloud formations.  Below, the trees and grasslands hold their own number of treasures, with a multitude of wildlife of every kind making an occasional appearance.

To help us celebrate, I have created a coloring page… free to download, print, and use!


Have a blessed day, full of gratitude for wherever you live!

“give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thess. 5:8

  1. I look forward to your posts very day. They brighten my day.

    Do you ever do commission work? I have a pair of boots that I would like for you to paint on. I can send you a picture and if you want to do this, I can maybe leave them at Tessera Art Gallery or meet you there. I am not in a hurry. I really like how you painted your shoes.

    • Thank you Linda!

      And yes, I do commission work, but usually there is a bit of a wait. If you send me a picture ( to victoryrd@hotmail.com) I will take a look and give you a price and figure out a time frame. Then if you want to go ahead we can figure out the logistics!

      Hope you have a creativity filled week!
