Pictures Of Us!
Here are some pictures of us! Enjoy!
1 - Yoko working on "Love Grows" (around May 5,'05)
2 - Ramone working on "Jujika kara" (May 29,'05)
3 - At a bagel cafe, Yoko working on a picture--But which one? (Aug.29,'06)
4 - Ramone trying to get started on "Reaching for God's Heart" (July 20,'06)
These are pictures of Yoko working on "Promise" - note her cute enjoying-it-thoroughly smile in the second picture! (Taken on January 14-15,'07)
This is a picture of Yoko & her family on New Year's Day 2008, when we told them the Japanese the name we were giving our son Timothy -- "Tsuyoshi" -- using a character from her father's name.
These are sketches I made on May 20 & June 4 ('07) of Yoko nursing Timothy.
And this is a pretty bad ink picture I did of Timothy, haha! (July 9,'07)
These are pieces I put up at Jesus Family Center's "Art Weekend" from Nov.3-4, 2007.
As you can see, Timothy was quite a charmer!
This is the second picture I did of Timothy, but maybe he didn't like it! (Nov.9,'07)
I did this picture of wanting to go deep in the ocean of God's love, and it seems like Timo wants to go deep in God's love, too! (Feb.10,'08) He knows how to rest in Mommy's love, and somehow he knows how to rest in God's love, too. Seeing Him I am filled with love and my eyes get watery, just like God's! The second picture from March 18th ('08) is a picture of that.
Actually, when I photograph pictures I usually do so by laying them on the floor in the sunlight. If Timothy is around, he of course wants to see what I'm doing! And he wants to come and touch the pictures, which of course usually stops me from being able to take the pictures, haha. I have to find ways to do it quickly or when he's asleep or in another room. However, this time I let him "touch", and he started pointing to the cross! He knows what it's all about, hey! He wants to draw, too! He wants to draw close to You, Jesus!
Yoko was writing something and Timo wanted to try... so it turned into his first "art", which alas I have not photographed. But I dare say he enjoyed it. Hehe. And suddenly I am melted in God's love as I realize that Timothy was partaking in His joy of creation! See this link to read some thoughts on this picture from March 22,'08.
