I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Out of step, but in His grip!
This she art canvas was the result of at least 3 do-overs...I lost count (made her several weeks back). I had the time, but wasn't in the best of moods, but wanted to to "work" so I kept starting over. Different day new layer, I mean the paint on this piece is thick! Even in this final version, my gal has some serious fashion issues-ha! Have you ever worked hard on something or found great joy in discovering new truth or been excited over a bargain find only to find that you are the only one who sees it that way? Feeling just one step out of pace in my surroundings would probably sum up the last couple of years for me. Maybe that is why I made her dress look like a bad 80's throwback....or maybe I just have bad taste!! Either way I like her just the way she is flaws and all....praise God He loves me that way too. I am also deeply blessed by the love of a devoted husband and son--who knew I was having a tough day yesterday and held my hand to pray for me. I tear up even as I type that--what joy he brings his mama's heart. Sometimes it is good not to fit in because THAT is better than any kind of worldly affirmation and I would take that any day of the week over external success. It is a good reminder for me to keep living coram deo--before the face of God. Thanks for stopping by!
