Two Sisters by Susan Macdowell Eakins circa 1879

This picture reminds me so much of me and my sister Jamie. I have the book, she is sewing. What I love about my sister is that we can be riding in the car for 20 minutes and not say a word to each other. I don't feel like I have to entertain her. But, we usually do talk, alot!
She is several years older than me, but it feels like we are the same age. When I feel down I know she will have an encouraging word for me. And I will have one for her when she needs it. God knew what he was doing when He gave us sisters, didn't He?

I don't have any sisters. I like how you describe your relationship and bond with your sister. The two of you are lucky!
I love the painting!!!

I love beauty, whether it is in nature, literature or art. And I love music... My day feels incomplete if I haven't had a chance to listen to some good music.. I also love beautiful souls, and kind hearts.

Please pray for the protection of Israel.
And for the Jewish people who live there. May God give them the strength they need to defeat their enemies.
