Guess that LDS Temple #093
Enjoy this original pencil sketch by Bekalyn Craig.  This sketch on an 8" x 10" canvas was created as the roots for a gratitude painting for a thoughtful and kind lady from Texas.

San Antonio Texas LDS Temple
Enjoy this original drawing by Bekalyn Craig of the San Antonio Texas LDS Temple.  This dynamic sketch is an homage to the temple I visited while having my first family reunion in Texas.  We also saw the Alamo and ate Texas BBQ.  This drawing was created with a #2 pencil on an 8" x 10" canvas.

If you would like to visit this House of God, the address is 20080 Stone Oak Pkwy, San Antonio, TX 78258.

Cuddly Canines
Enjoy this original painting by Bekalyn Craig in acrylics on an 8" x 10" canvas of a snapshot provided by Bonnie Silvester.  These cuddly Italian greyhounds are well loved.

The Hague Netherlands LDS Temple
Enjoy this original painting by Bekalyn Craig.  Painted in brilliant acrylics paints on a 8" x 10" canvas, this glowing temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints stands pointing to heaven.  The reference photo was provided by Carol Grimes.

If you would like to visit this temple, the address is Osijlaan 2, 2722 CV Zoetermeer, Netherlands.

The tulips depicted in the painting are from the artist's garden.

The other day I received this letter in the mail: 
"Dear Bekalyn,
    What a surprise to receive such a beautiful and thoughtful gift from you.  The painting of the Bolivia Temple really touched our hearts and will be a treasure for us.  Thank you so much for your kindness and for thinking of us.

                With kind regards,
                 Elder and Sister Zwick & family"

It all started a few weeks ago when we were in the crazy business of moving out of our home.  I was reluctant to box up my paintings as they could be damaged in the moving process.  I showed to remaining temple paintings to some missionaries visiting for dinner.  Elder Ward mentioned that he knew Elder Zwick's address. My Cochabamba, Bolivia LDS Temple painting is one of my favorites and I wanted to send it to a good home.  I had no phone number for Elder Zwick or his family, so going on faith, I mailed out the painting sans introduction.  I hoped it wouldn't be taken as a bomb or something like that and prayed the painting would be safe.  I sent the package to "The Zwick Family" in hopes that it would be welcomed.

We sold our home and through numerous failed contracts landed in the basement of our relatives while still desperately house hunting.  Several days after moving in, I received this letter in the mail.  It brightened my spirits and touched my heart.  Little had I thought that sending out a gift into the world would bring hope back to my heart.  God gives us miracles when we dare to follow His inspiration.

PS
Please pray for us to find and get the right home before Christmas, if it is God's will.  Thank you and God bless you!   Bekalyn
