mother-in-law

Every Sunday I drive my mother-in-law to Church. I sit with her and often want to sketch her because of her interesting gnarled features. Rather like gazing for a long time at an old weathered gnarled tree. She would hate to hear me say this. Fortunately she doesn't see my blog.
Today's Scripture lesson was from the Gospel of Mark 1:29. 29 As soon as they left the synagogue, they went with James and John to the home of Simon and Andrew. 30 Simon’s mother-in-law was in bed with a fever, and they immediately told Jesus about her. 31 So he went to her, took her hand and helped her up. The fever left her and she began to wait on them. A tiny detail in a much larger story about Jesus healing the mother-in-law of someone he was visiting. And then she got up from her bed and began to cook food for them!
 Put this in my sketching in church category on my Sketchbook for Android app.
