I'm so happy for you, it goes to show, good things happen to good people. That is a cool idea painting things in rainbow pattern and a good use of leftover paint.

How wonderful for you!! It must been wonderful to have their young, joyful energy to help you get some things done around the house and garden. It makes it easier for you to go forward with things that are meaningful to you, by giving you a little boost. Praise God, indeed.

I love your photos. Your rainbow-hued butterflies are beautiful. I see those everywhere - in white, but you gave yours life. I also love the grace and form of your bottle tree. Very nice. Thanks for sharing.

How absolutely wonderful! When something good happens to you like that, doesn't it make you break down and cry out of gratitude? And how heartening to hear that teenagers are doing more than getting pregnant, getting drunk and texting on their cell phones while driving! Yes, I agree, you have been blessed. But then I imagine they have too. It is a great feeling to help someone in need and do a good job of it.

I love your rainbow pieces! Those butterflies are spectacular! And what kind of balls did you mosaic for all those cool wire thingys you painted? I can't believe they are all bowling balls! I think the rainbow colors are appropriate to match that outstanding bottle tree of yours and you sure did a wonderful job painting them so neatly. But I see you missed that cute lizard on the rocks. He is cute as can be with that rusty coloring.

Thanks for blessing us with the pictures of your wonderful creations!

I love the butterflies,I will have to give mine some of that great color! DS brought me gifts from So. Dak. & 1 is a glass ball about 6 in across inside a frame with hummingbirds in metal with hanger, will look great out back! Lizard is cute & bottle tree is beautiful! Bravo for the kids giving you a hand! Enriches both you & them!!JAN

What a heartwarming thing to read. Bless those kids (and the parents who raised them!) Its such a joy to hear about teenagers like this.
I'm so happy for you too!

Your bottle tree is absolutely wonderful. I love the shape of it. And your rainbow butterflies look great.
Wish I had your patience for painting like that.
I have zero... give me a can of spray paint and a few minutes. I'm done! LOL

hugs, Karen

Oh Nanatricia, I am so happy for you. I truly enjoyed all your garden art. I was just thinking that maybe some of these kids are needy themselves but the church and Impact is making a change in their lifes; by working with their hands and helping those in need. What a great program, here in our valley we have a program called Student Venture and they help students by teaching them to help others. God Bless these wonderful programs!
