For today's sketch challenge - the main panel is a bit big but I needed stamp therapy today and coloring is my therapy.
I wasn't sure whether to share this, but because many who know me here were so supportive of my nephew Elijah, I thought I would share this here. Elijah fought hard over the last year after his transplant but we had to let him go Friday night. Thankfully, there was time to prepare, and several of the family were able to go to NYC to be with him and his mom and dad. His passing was peaceful and has left a tremendous impact on me. I am thankful that he no longer needs to struggle, and I am so thankful for God's work which is evident in the lives of everyone involved. God is, and all is well.

Oh, Arin, I am so very sorry to hear about little Elijah. I have thought about him and prayed for him often in the last several months. I will continue to keep you and his family in my prayers. On a lighter note, I really do love your card! It's so natural and beautiful. A wonderful tribute to Elijah.
