Among the amazing experiences happening this month is the HarpInWorship.org conference which is online because of the impact of the pandemic. This is a conference I have hoped to attend and this year am able to virtually.. Beautiful music, playing and much to learn in keeping heart and harp in tune to Jesus' higher purpose. I am but a sinner saved by grace. My favorite quote of the day came from Greg Buchanan I believe.. "I play the harp but I am listening for the trumpet"!
Perfect Up North weather - cool and sunny with a breeze that refreshes the soul. It is a great day to be outdoors. Just enough wind to set the harps strings to singing..

BoyneArts.org - Another 1st and check off the Bucket List!
Today was the 1st Annual Boyne Arts in the Park, a juried Art Fair/Show. I was assigned booth number 14 and had the joy of not only being in my first show with my art for sale (!) but playing and singing for them also. Within minutes of setting up my watercolor, "Sailing" was sold. That sale was my first sale outside of family who have been so supportive and encouraging with commissions and gifts. The amazing artists at this show were inspiring and their artwork absolutely beautiful. There was a glass artist, fiber artists, a doll maker, jewelry, oil, acrylic, watercolor.. The free art experiences for children and young adults really added to the days activities. Some of my favorite miniatures sold ( Lilies at Young State Park, Grapes, Sunset Park in Boyne , along with an acrylic painting "Falling". Thank you to family, friends and the BoyneArts.org artists who made the day so very special.
FolkHarpSociety.com - this weekend is the 2021 Random Acts of Harping and with the help of Bruce I was able to capture a photo. I believe it was over 90 degress farenheit..a real scorcher but no problem for my marvelous Delight by HeartlandHarps.com!
