Keeping Jesse’s Memory Burning

So many times I have been asked how I keep going after Jesse went to Heaven. It has been interesting to see how God has provided me with peace and an open mind to explore my creative side.  Acrylic painting, chalk art, travel photography, seasonal crafts, cooking and now candle making…they all have been wonderful outlets.

Candles are one of my favorite things.  Most every morning before I make coffee, I light a candle and read a daily calendar scripture.  Needless to say, candles are a necessity :).  This year I was inspired by our girl, Makenzie Sanford, to make my own soy candles.  It has been so fun to learn the process. Vanilla, citrus, cinnamon and most recently Jesse’s favorite cologne fragrance have been my scents of choice.

I share my handmade candles…to keep my Jesse’s memory burning.IMG_7645

    Ingrid, you never cease to amaze me on your ability to “Be”. During a wonderful conversation with my Pastor a few months ago he shared a very enlightening perspective on who we “are” as God’s creation. He said that God did not create Human Doings, He created Human Beings. He went on to say that we need to learn to “Be” and not focus so much on “Do”. Taken in the right context, I thoroughly believe he was right. YOU have mastered the “Be”. Thank you for sharing your journey of Being!!!!
