THE TIME I ALMOST ….

  1. So the skywatch photo was in sync with the painting shape and vibe – that was cool.
    And then the purple and blue colors in the post had a nice unified vibe (cool
    Colors) – even the purple on the doors fit so well –

    And as for the story – the writing itself was clear. Now this is just my opinion and just disregard if this is you.
    The different color font was a tiny distraction from the flow / I once had someone tell me that with a post and I thought “too bad” but then I have been to posts that do various colors and I saw what they meant. When we read a lot we like the same unified text – and yours here was only a few uses of different colors – for impact – but I kept wondering if it was a live link – and it did distract. So I was told to just use a bold heading or let your readers get the impact on their own. And at least you did not add a lot of different sizes – I find that to be very distracting –

    And the use of the word “chicken” was also colloquial – fine for a blog post – of course! But I had to think back to what that meant (coward – passive) and as is the case with such words – they can be culture sensitive and we define them so differently. Well it was easy to see what you meant in the context of what you wrote – but wanted to share that. It also just did not seem like a grown up word! Ha – but that is biased

    Content and experience
    The experience is a beautiful testimony to his God works – and spooky cool at times! The girl can sell her jewel and the way it tied in. And then getting her permission was the cherry on top!
    To god be the glory because there are no mistakes – it is all
    Interconnected – and so often it is NOT even really about us. Well
    It always is because god loves us so much and gives us the desires of our heart- and all that – but as an ambassador and advocate we are often strategically placed –
    And your not knowing what to paint and letting Him lead – oh what a cool share!

  2. Hi jesh! Thanks for bringing me to this post! I did enjoy it and it reminds me that boogers need to do this more. I sometimes will go to bush boy and make sure he drops by a certain post and so I have done it – or I link the author in a mention and that usually brings them by! And so seriously – thanks for inviting me over to read this! Such a cool experience – and be right back with my second part of the comment –

  3. What a great story! I know we shouldn’t be surprised, but our humanness is always amazed when we see how the dots are finally connected! God is always working for us 🙂 Thank you so very much for making My Corner of the World a success!

  6. I loved reading about God speaking into your life like this, using your gift to speak to another. He is so good and He speaks to each of us in ways that are unique to each of us. Thanks for showing me another unique and wondrous way He has of using individuals through the gifts and talents He has given us. Sometimes we put Him into a box and think He can only speak in one way; but that’s not so. I loved this story.

    1. Thank you so much, Michelle! If want Him to keep His inspiration close, I know I need to follow his promptings. But my logic sometimes gets in the way! In this case – for sure! Looking back, the stress Samantha was in, was more important to him, than the appropriate subject for the conference, which was about music:):) After reading your comment, I am especially grateful, He brought me you on your way!

    1. I saved this one for a special occasion, and this fits so much what I went through – and almost failed the test! Will come back later for my comment on your Tuscan doors:)

  8. Jesh, I love everything about this post, but most of all that God worked in such a wonderful and mysterious way in all these lives. Thanks for sharing this praise. It was just what I needed this morning (not that there’s anything terrible going on, but a reminder of His love and power is never amiss!)

    Blessings!

    1. Thank you Janet! If you knew what a difficult time I had to post this story. Not only was this humbling to my own process as an artist, but I KNEW I had to share this. Had to figure out how to do this, since I did not have “Samantha’s” consent!! I don’t know why she changed her mind (the postscript went on during the music was playing, and this conversation was not more than 2 minutes), but I’m glad she did! Thank you, for your comment confirmed my struggle to post was not for nothing:):) Blessings:)
