C. S. Lewis quotes beauty Bible vere graphics

It was when I was happiest that I longed the most. The sweetest thing in all my life has been the longing to find the place where all the beauty came from.               ~C. S. Lewis~  (click to tweet)

I will sing to the Lord a new song. His praise from the ends of the earth.           ~Isaiah 42:10~  (click to tweet)

Backstory: No photos this week. Just some graphics I’ve been playing around with. The bird didn’t come out exactly as I’d hoped, but he has a kind of retro look, doesn’t he? He reminds me of the illustrations in my books back in the 60’s. (Did he make you think of an old To Kill a Mockingbird cover?) What have you been working on lately?

As always, feel free to download & share.

Blessings, friends!

  1. Those are BEAUTIFUL! How do you create them? I have two daughters who love trying to create graphics but they only play around in Picmonkey. The messages on each of your graphics are wonderful. Thank you for sharing your talent! And I appreciate that you took the time to link up last week with me. I do hope you’ll stop by again!

  2. These are beautiful, both visuals and sentiments.

  3. I love your quotes and pictures. I have a linky at Sunday Stillness. I would love you to join the Sunday Stillness Community. I love the bird – I have been doing a series of bird pictures after taking a course in experimental watercolour. This is beautiful.
