In his travels around the country, my husband has met some pretty special people. One of them is Lisa, who recently visited our area from Colorado and, during her stay, invited Mike and me out to dinner. Lisa is a self-described “part-time artist and college student, and sometime singer” who has “learned how to make time management an extreme sport!” Lisa forgot to mention that she is also a marvelous dinner companion. Mike and I were overwhelmed when Lisa gave us an original oil painting with gold leaf, incorporating Mike’s and my favorite Scripture passages (Genesis 1:1 and Matthew 28:18-20) and the flowers I like best (morning glories and irises).
