Burs Kyrka, Gotland, Sweden


This past July, I spent 10 days in Sweden with my daughter and new grandson!  We enjoyed a full week on the island of Gotland exploring ancient ruins, Viking burial grounds and the old walled city of Visby.   Scattered across the countryside were dozens (93 still remaining) of ancient churches built primarily in the 13th Century.  

This one, just walking distance from where we were staying in the community of Burs, was my sketch for this years Christmas Card.  The steeples of each church are strategically spaced on the island so that from any place you  may be, you can see a steeple to help you find your way.  For me, the same is true today... if I'm feeling lost or confused about which direction I need to go, if I look for the steeple, I will find my way.   

Thank you all for following my blog posts... I've been a bit sporadic this past year when "life" got a bit crazy, but am excited for some new opportunities and trying out some new artsy ideas with you in 2019! 

Wishing all of you a Happy and Blessed New Year!
