A Prayer ForThe Weary…

I am hopeful that with the New Year there will be much new business.  And although it hasn’t been really busy, I have managed to stay very busy be about the Lord’s business and a little artwork as well.  Here is what I have worked on…

My Carleysense site has a new look and I learned a lot about Photoshop during this process.  I have discovered I really like Photoshop.  I can see how I could become a Photoshop junkie if not careful!

I also learned how to hook up my video camera up as a webcam, upload to imovie, edit (just learning that so there is a big learning curve) and post on my site.

I have opened a Zazzle Store and love this site!  I have had, well should I say; God has put on my heart, these great artistic ideas to spread His Word.  I love shirts with a message and I have had great fun creating them.  Check them out and get yours!
Help spread His Word…

Then I got a call from my dear friend Terry…

Asking me to join her and help on another, my 2nd her first…

Once again we were pushed to our limits, worn out, sleep deprived, slightly food deprived (our own fault) and in the end had huge smiles on our faces and pleased that we got to be a part of something so much bigger than ourselves.

And then, the excitement of that whole trip wore down,I had a small job re-doing a fireplace mantel. Of course I was so tired I forgot before pictures, so just enjoy these after picks!

So there you have it!  January almost wrapped up. I’m working on other things and I post them when it’s time! See you back here soon!

God Bless You and Pass it ON!

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…

I find myself today, and the day before, well, and the day before, needing desperately to be in my Fathers lap.  It is here where I find refuge, safety, love and the renewing power to continue to move forward in a world that seems to pull out all stops to keep me stuck. Thank You Lord for your unending, unconditional love, compassion, grace and mercy.  I love You, and I need You.
