Every now and then I have to post something other than my art.  This is about the most wonderful Artist.  It’s about a movie about the most wonderful Artist.  Read on, and God Bless You.

 

Has anybody seen the movie, The Perfect Gift by Jefferson Moore.  I watched it this morning at 2 am on TBN.

I couldn’t sleep, again.  For different reasons.  Personal family life is being strained, again, different day but the same reason, and I find myself desperately wanting to isolate myself.  I don’t want to be around people, any people and I don’t want to be responsible for anyone, no one.  I don’t want to make any decisions, not for myself or for anyone else.

When I get like this all I can do is close my eyes and say His name.  Jesus.  Jesus. Jesus…

I don’t know what to pray, or what to pray for.  I hurt, I don’t like where I am at and I just want to be back in His arms.  Jesus, Jesus, Jesus…

So when I couldn’t go back to sleep, I got up, went downstairs, started the coffee and turned the tv on.  My normal stop is Fox News, but not tonight.  I knew I needed something, I needed God.  I turned to TBN and there He was, well, His representation that is.

The Perfect Gift was just what I needed.  Everything I feel about Christmas and decorating and the stress of giving gifts no one can afford melted away as I watched this movie.  And I cried at the last scene.  The little girl saying good-bye, as she hugs Him.  In His arms.

All I have to do is close my eyes.

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus…

Hey everyone!

Go and check out Finestra Decorative Hardware website and blog.  I’m in there!  Amy was so nice as to include me in their blog.  Thank you Amy!

Also I am working on a commission canvas for a new friend I recently met in Community Bible Study.  She blessed me with the opportunity to paint something very dear to her heart.  The Jordan River in this picture with an amazing rainbow. The finished piece will look a little different as she has asked me to add some wonderful elements.  You will have to wait and see it finished, I am not spoiling the surprise!  Here is the photo I am going by and the first layer of oil on the canvas.  I will post as the painting progresses.

Yes, I know it doesn’t look like much now, but just watch over the next several days…

Also I am finishing up two pieces of furniture.  Can’t wait for the finish product on these babies.

Hard at work!  You know I hadn’t planned the finish like this but once I started I saw something really cool to do to this table.  Wait and see!

And finally, the next new oil painting in the works. You can see it come to life.  This is Pawleys Creek here in SC. No worries, I’ll show you when I am done!

Okay for some reason it won’t post my picture.  How odd!  Everything else did.  Well, I will show you in another post.  It’s late and I must get up early in the morning.

Good night world.

God Bless You All!
