The Winds Of Changes Are Blowing Over Here...

My mini 'Art Journal'
I am full of anxiety over some news I recieved yesterday...I can't say what it is yet...but I felt I needed to document this moment somehow...all I know is if it is God's will then it will be or be not!  Regardless if this situation turns out to be or not...no matter what there is definately some BIG changes coming around the corner for us either way...the difference is when!  Soooo...the BIG changes may come very soon or they may happen later...the changes will be happy moments, challenges I'm sure but filled with love...at least that's what I'm believing!!  I'm not trying to sound secretive...it's just that I need to be sure of what's going to happen before I say anything more...I am filled with HOPE and looking up to my Lord with all my FAITH in HIM to lead and guide me & my husband through this next road on our journey of life...

Creating Courage...

A bit of reflecting here...

I've been struggling lately with my creative process for my painting...at first I thought it may be just my 'distraction' thing but then I realized that sometimes I look at the work I've begun and I'm afraid of messing up my pretty backgrounds which leaves me with a lot of unfinished art.  So my new goal is to be more courageous with my artwork...especially since my artwork is a part of who I am and what I do...it's a very important thing for me!

I also need to be courageous about revealing myself in my art...not holding back...I'm known for that to people who really know me and what I'm capable of...I have a tendency to think small which the Lord reveals to me through my own nephews and nieces telling me how awesome my artwork is or how great my creations are and how I could be a famous artist!  It is an amazing thing to hear these words from them...to know that they believe in me more than I had believed in myself...they push me to keep on going...
to create with courage!

On the way to *OVERFLOW*!!

Sooo...I've been working on stuff...as usual...and as I look around my home, my life...I realize that alot of my things around me are 'incomplete'...I'm usually an optimistic gal and like to view it all as glass half full but for some reason...that's not working for me right now!

I can see very clearly that all the projects and goals I have; spiritually, personally, homely, artistically...are 3/4's full but the 1/4 needs to be established...for some reason...I am not satisfied with 3/4...I want my glass to be *OVERFLOWING*!!

This is very new to me and leaves me feeling a little anxious...but I KNOW...DEEPLY KNOW...that this is from GOD!  I pray everyday and night for him to lead me...show me what I need to do...he knows my dreams and goals...everything I do and do not do...rights or wrongs...and loves me still...so I know that he is leading me to dream BIGGER!

Everytime I pray for him to lead me to a place where I can feel I am successful with my art...my life...I hear him saying to me to 'BE READY!'

Right now...I am just trying to take this new view in...and make the decisions I need to make to be ready for the state of *OVERFLOW* that I know my Lord is bringing me to...
