I am now

I am now

I am now. here present my spirit reaches for my truer self
I am not in control My God goes before me and plans my day I surrender it all to Him.
All I can do is point to His Glory All things I do is through Him.
Why would I want to control? Why limit the greatness He has in store with human thought? Anything I have ever prayed for….asked for….. has either been blown away in comparison to my wishes or opened a new door by closing one. He doesn't use my plans. He has bigger ones.

inspired by scripture and my supernatural God!
Ephesians 3:20 " Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us…"
Deuteronomy 31:8 "The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

Latest work

I have been painting every day lately. Getting in the studio is sometimes tough. Maybe the desire wanes. Maybe I'm a bit lazy. But once I fill my water cup and sit down at my painting table, it starts. Not always does it come easy. In which case I make lots of silly scribbles with lots and lots of colored pencils. I really love the faber castell brand. They are a bit more sturdy. The lead is harder. thank you scribbles for allowing me to feel like a kid again and for giving me an outlet for not knowing what the heck to do. It is a start!

I met You

I met you in the silent dusk
your voice only the crickets
your garments on the horizon
beginning in blue, then to lavender,
and then easing so carefully to pink.

I saw you again for the first time.
You reveal yourself in subtlety.
The moon glorifies you....
waking again
praising you in light

You are the birds' song
singing just for me.
You are the tenderness of a deer...
gazing with wonder straight to my soul.

Rebirth I am born again. "Bathed in Heavenly Light"

Bella Grace Blog hop

I'm so thrilled to be a part of the Bella Grace blog hop….

Bella Grace is a new publication from Stampington. This image-rich book is a peek into the lives of artists. It goes beyond the behind-the-scenes. To me, it's more about the spirit of creating. What drives us to create. The why's. Then takes you there….nestled into a backpack for a view upon a mountaintop. It makes you want to travel to these places. To spend time with the artist over coffee. And I think that's just what you'll do with Bella Grace. She certainly lives up to her name.

One Sunday I wrote and painted this. I hope it inspires you to lay out among the stars. ponder the smallness yet vastness that is You…..

I am Rooted in His love.
my story holds everything
through spirit I embrace Grace.

I am a light.
A shared light with the one that came before me
I am here to point to His Glory
To cherish what is so freely given.

To be still
to lay with the stars as one
to hold and acknowledge
that I am all God…
