I absolutely love that picture. I grew up with it also. Hope you had a good day.

Claudie said...

You won't believe this, but I have THE SAME PICTURE.
I found it at a Thrift Shop and just had to have it.
I'm not kidding when I say it's the same. Same frame and all.
WOW To know that it hangs in your computer room and has been around for many years, makes mine even more precious.
Happy Foto Friday
Love Claudie

Deborah said...

Thank you for reminding us of our 'extended' family...really not the right word...shouldn't be 'extended'...should be immediate family, shouldn't it?

wishing you a wonderful weekend!

WOW! Breathtaking and calming at the same time.

I've seen that same picture in various places over the years and it always warms my heart...thank you for sharing it!

Joy said...

That is one of the nicest renditions of Christ that I've ever seen.

Really love this artist's portrait of our Father. It captures the kindness and love in his eyes so well.

Just stopping in to say Good mornin'! How are you doing today? I'm still sitting here with my mornin' cup of coffee just tryin' to wake up...hehe!

That's my favorite picture of Jesus and the fact that it was your family's...makes it such a treasure!!!

Hey Girlfriend, I think I can make you a button for that Texas photo over at photobucket...I can put anything on it that you want and then send it back to you!!! Let me know if you want me to.

Love ya Sweetie,

Hi Ann, hope you are feeling better. I love this painting, my grandmother had the same piece in her living room for as long as I can remember. What a great idea for Family Foto Friday! Hugs, Kathy

That picture reminds me of Sunday School and Vacation Bible School!

Oh, and thanks for the Texas flag!


Penny said...

That is a lovely family favorite!

Dawn said...

I have the same picture too. I think mine is a bit smaller. I have mine hanging over my bed and it reminds me of my greatgrandmother. She had it hanging in her house as long as I can remember.

take care,

Montee said...

This is my all time favorite picture too. It is a beautiful portrait of Jesus. I think it shows all that He was and is.
