Where I find rest....

Psalm 121
I lift up my eyes to the hills— where does my help come from?
My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip—he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
The LORD watches over you— the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.
The LORD will keep you from all harm— he will watch over your life;
the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.

At the Zoo

When I was a young child, I was always fascinated any time momma had a chance to take us to the zoo but when the circus would come to town, it would make my day complete!*grin*
I did this illustration and my daughter Gabriela, ( now 14) told me the she would write a little poem for it. I thought that it was funny how everyone *sees* differently. I had the circus in mind but Gabby saw a little boy at the zoo.
One thing she and I shared the same vision... no matter what this little boy is so fascinated by his big balloon that even the lollipop is left for second,grin.
Since as young child red has been my favorite color however; when anyone asks me what is my favorite color I answer white- because I can paint on it!*grin*
ps. below I am sharing some of my wip pictures.

Trip to Equador

This is a little different post from my normal posts. Last week My husband Mark, took me along to a fantastic trip to Equador. It was a business trip but he made sure we had enough time to see the most amazing places in Quito, Equador.

In the photo above , I am in the right side and the lady next to me is Lorena. She owns several music stores in Quito and in other nearby cities. I don't think I ever mentioned before but my husband is in the music business for the past 23 years. He has a business in Miami Fl and you can take a look here and here to see what brands he REPs. In some of these brands he is the exclusive buyer and he sells to the distributors.....

We took a teleferic ( not sure how to say in English ) to the highest point of this volcano mountain. The picture above is the last stop that we did. The teleferic is a little cart...perhaps is called skyscraper {?} ... that brought us to the place on the right of the picture. We had to walk all the way to the top and because of the altitude , there are not a lot of oxygen ... we stopped every few yards to rest , but it was all well worth it.*grin*
This was the other side of the volcano view overthe city.

The picture above was taken at the "Center of the earth". It is actually where the line of the equator is. pretty neat stuff. WOW!!!I was in the center of the earth!*grin*
If you look closely on the picture above, you can see a massive clouds. This was amazing.... these clouds comes and goes every day at the same time and pours rain in the center of a volcano on the other side of the montains.
I told Mark that I was dying to go there and that is what we did the next day.

In the picture above I was standing around the "mouth" of a volcano that has not erupt for about 200 years .... do you see the housing down there? people actually LIVES there! There is an entire community including a school. ... inside the volcano... isn't it crazy? I was fascinated with the clouds and rain... it rolled back and forth and a soft shower came upon us... it was magical and mysterious to me..

We did some shopping of course,grin. Here Mark and I were at the most famous local market.

Mark and I had breakfast everyday at the 13th floor... what a view!!!!!!!!!!

This type of trip is very tipical for Mark but not for me.... I have, for many years, preferred to stay home instead to go along because my children were young and I never liked to leave them even with my wonderful Mother in law, but now that they are other is different to me, although I miss them so much , I feel more comfortable.
The picture above is Mike Mangini and Mark. He is a famous drum player that finished his Clinic tour in Equador after visiting several other South America countries. He is endorsing Pearl Drums. I am not very familiar with these clinics but my chin dropped in seeing and hearing this guy playing .... he is AMAZING! Check it out!
I had a lot a fun and Mark wants me to go to the next trips now on.... yeah, I think I will do just that!*grin*

I hope you enjoyed the pictures.... I took so many and only choose few to post to keep it short!
Thank you for visiting me!!!*smiles*
