I won!!!

So I had to share this BEAUTIFUL painting and story!

Forgive me if I am random in the typing, but I get so excited and can't get all my thoughts onto "paper"! Ok, so here is the run down.....

Madi and the rest of the youth group at our church were set to take a trip down to Tiger town to go to Healing Place chruch and to Blue Bayou water park. To raise money, they raffled off tickets for a 100$ gift card or a painting done by Angel Turner Dyke ( our pastor's wife and local artist) She does awesome work and is very talented. You can check some of her work out here Anywho, so of course I bought some tickets, what mom wouldn't?! Plus I really really realllllly wanted that painting. I've been wanting some of her work for a while now. Well when the drawing was placed....guess what name was picked for the painting?!!! YEP you guessed it....ME! I was so HAPPY! I feel so blessed to have gotten that painting. It holds special meaning to me and now it hangs right over my sofa in my living room! SO hereeee it is!
