(not about skill -all about the message)
I felt in my heart to do it in text --like phone text as a message to this generation that God wants to communicate with us.
In my mind I was emphasizing the word "call" but I heard the Lord say concentrate on the word "Answer" -- Everybody calls on their god but I am the God that answers. (Answers in the original text means He sings, He testifies , He responds and He dwells with us which is cool in itself --knowest not mean secrets /mysteries he wants to tell us)
I started to paint in the background and I was thinking angels. But I heard the Lord say "Great cloud of witnesses" which is the heros of the Bible that have died and now cheer us on in the heavenlies. The great cloud of witness also are the ones who have prayed and have documented answers to prayer. Daniel in the Lion's den, the Red sea parting, David & Goliath, the fire of God igniting the altar of Baal when they called down fire and Baal didn't answer....the list goes on and on...and I have some of my own to tell should anyone ask.
Our God answers~ just call Him.

...I say to God be the Glory!

Blessed be your name... in a land that is plentiful - where your streams of abundance flow...blessed be your name. Blessed be your name... when I'm found in the desert place...though I walk through the desert place...blessed be your name.
Every blessing you pour out I'll turn back to praise when the darkeness closes in Lord ... still I will say blessed be your name
Blessed be your name - when the sun shining down on me -- when the worlds all as it should be Blessed be your name - Blessed be your name on the road marked with suffering when there's pain in the offering blessed be your name.
I started a painting piece and felt inspired to change to this one. (A specific song for a specific person) That song speaks to me about remembering God in the good times and the bad. This song speaks to me about trusting that He has all things in control and will work all things to the good. ...He gives and takes away -- my heart will choose to say "Lord Blessed be your name"
Sometimes when there is affluence we forget God but today I thank you Lord for the doors that you have opened and for the ones you have closed also....

The outcome was this painting. It represents God speaking the world as we know it into existence--bringing order out of chaos.
I had been studying the word "firmament" which means a visible arch in the sky and the root word portrays God as an artist ...so I was considering God as an artist. When God created the Heavens and the earth like when deep calls unto deep ...His spirit calling out to our spirit ...Its Him wanting to know us.
In April - I went to Pelican Narrows and at the ladies meeting they sprung it on me that I was to share - one lady said the only thing the Lord was giving her was Genisis 1:1 ... so it fit so well. God is good
I'm always fascinated with train art.
It gets my mind wandering ...where did the train come from ...where was it stopped long enough for someone to do a painting? Did the artist paint it on the run or after dark. (Who ever even thought of paining on a train anyway) I ponder --what was the artist thinking and what was their message to the world - my favorite so far is this one "If you are reading this- You should probably leave" I'm presented with a challenge as an artist --- if I had 15 minutes and a can of spray paint ---what would my message be?

I took this picture on a September evening and what I love about it is the mood.
A warm harvest day turned into a cool harvest evening with the hum of the grasshoppers and crickets. The sun was setting and the full moon was beginning to glow.
The work for the day had come to a halt and everything was completely still.

I'm still sorting out which path of life I am to be on -- the usual status quo or the one less traveled. I want my life to be impacting and to make a difference to the world in a significant way.
Which road will truly bring success, satisfaction and peace to my heart? God what is your plan for me?
Then, with a second glance, I noticed the one less traveled has a cross down the very center of it - so perhaps my question is already answered ...

I was so excited when we got to the town - I walked and prayed looking up at the sky for a sign. As short while later - God did as he promised "He showed up" and gave us evidence in the form of a rainbow. It was breathtaking! Every colour was precise - and I have never witnessed a perfect double rainbow that touched the ground. It felt as though if I had walked a few more feet I would be in the centre of it -What an absolutely humbling experience - that God would visit us in such a dynamic way!

Honestly that situation totally touched my heart - isn't it cool that God with cross our paths and we both left encouraged.

Today - I met a lady from Africa that has just moved here. She has six children and a husband. Moved here from the Congo - speaks some of the same language I learned and we just bonded so well. (She had me at the mention of 6 african children)
What are the chances that I would meet an African lady --- in my small town? I wasn't going to walk but changed my mind at the last minute and we met. How cool is that?
I have been looking deeper into the scripture"He orders our steps". It has a really interesting meaning. The word orders means: He prepares the way
and that He will walk with us as a companion every step of the way. The word order also can be used to request things.... like when we stand at fast food counter and someone else places our order "They'll have this and this and this".
I think it would be safe to say that Jesus orders what we will need for the journey, sets things in place and interweaves peoples paths for a divine purpose. For a person with trust issues like my self -- I find this scripture so reassuring.

On a recent shift, a group came in and were singing songs of every type. They concluded with a few hymns. I was explaining to one of my favorite residents that the last two songs were about Jesus.
She said "Awe - He's a nice guy - Isn't he!"
