Josh Gilbert, music minister of God




Last night I went to a concert at the coffeehouse 

our Church, The River Room Church, and was so 

blessed by the Holy Spirit ministering to people. 

This was a portal straight to the heart of Our Father.



I want to share it with you.

A Birthday Surprise!


Mark Eulo preached this morning at church, started off playing "Sweet Sweet Surrender" by John Denver. Hit me straight in the heart, funny how God uses the stranges things to get my attention of all things: a John Denver song!!!

A Supernatural Find!

Back in the mid 2000's I was getting ready for an art show, set some pictures down on my table and when I came back to get them they were gone! Whhhaaattttt? 

Get ready for this, yesterday I was looking in a closet in the guest room for something and in picking up some curtains a bag slipped and started to fall. Inside were the four pictures and several others that were all matted! How did they get in that closet? And when? Being as I have straightened out that closet several times since then, so has the hubby!

Many things are a happening!

The best news first:

I saw the Oncologist Tuesday, August 9, and after 5 years I am cancer free and only have to see him once in the next year! And if everything is still fine I won’t have to see him again! Woo Woo!  (I am flat sick of seeing Drs on a constant basis!)

Another good thing:

I joined a group called Virginia Art with a Heart. We participate in shows and donate 10% of our sales to the Non-Profit we are helping at any show we hold.

I was in a show on July 24 “Jolly July.” It was a Christmas in July show and was being held for a Non-Profit that helps blind/deaf people. There was a ‘Signing Santa’, live music, a short play, artists, and food. We were told to decorate and dress Christmassy so in my usual fashion I dressed like an elf including ears!


And here are some pictures of my table:

1 Sketch, 1 WIP

For the past week my hubby has been out of town due to work and I've been feeling it. One day I got the idea to draw a picture of Jesus so I found a picture online for inspiration and over the count of four days I created 2 different pictures from the same inspiration.


The first picture ended up looking like a guy I knew growing up (he was my best friends brother and was like a brother to me) and that brought up many good memories.


 


The second picture I am still working on but being as I love showing Work-In-Progresses I'm going to show you.


27 May 2016

I sooooo love this!!!!!

It amazes me what new things are created for artists to use! I love it!

She is finished! And she has a name!

As I was working on creating the grass yesterday her name came to me: “Aengeal!” That is Irish for Angel, love the Irish, of course I’m partial because I am of Irish descent.

When I was a child I always prayed:
“Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom God’s love commits me here. Ever this day, be at my side, to rule and guide. Amen.”

Of course since then I know it is God that rules and guides me but He does commit angels to help us and protect us as we go through our days and nights.

I just finished her and here she is!

WIP: latest Update

The latest WIP of my angel.

Sorry I haven't posted in a few day, went camping and had other things pop up. I've colored a night sky in around the stars and have been creating clouds with highlights.

WIP: Angel Update

Didn't like the way the background turned out so I have erased as much of it as I can and now I will do my best to change it.

God's love is precious!





Isn't it funny how a certain place can touch your heart and spirit and just a glimpse of a picture can take you back. Such beauty surrounded me, the woods, the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, the wild flowers, the lakes not far away, the waterfalls just outside of Dolgeville, NY, fields of crops, cows and horses grazing in the fields alongside the roads I use to drive, the little giggling cricks, the loud East Canada Creek, I soooo miss it all!



 This song reminds me of the time I spent at Pinecrest Bible Training Center.

Chemtrails

Look up in the sky and notice the weird lines that crisscross it. We are told they are contrails which are normal ice crystals that form when planes hit a certain level in the sky. But, contrails dissipate within seconds to a minute. What you are seeing these days are what are known as chemtrails, we are being sprayed, without our permission mind you, with a mixture of chemicals and poisons. These white lines that are emmitted from the planes do not disappear, they stay, expand, form clouds, fill the sky, and the chemicals eventually fill our airspace which we breathe, taking in these poisons and cause unknown illnesses (such as what is now called chemtrail flu), land on the ground and kill trees and plants, etc.

(My experience with an unknown illness:
Last year I got real sick and the Dr said he had no clue what it was: sorta like bronchitis but he claimed it was viral even though I could taste infection. After a few weeks he then put me on antibiotics and it went away. Got it 4 times last year, no clue what it was. Now he has told me if I feel it coming on call him and he will issue antibiotics because that is the only thing that has been helping. 

When this thing hits, it hits quick and hard. Back in the beginning of the year we had a day where it was 61 degrees out so I went outside for a few minutes. Later I went back out to bring in the trash barrels and 15 minutes later as I sat at my desk I suddenly started coughing which got worse by the moment. called the Dr and he he called in an Rx. I looked at the sky and it was crisscrossed with chemo trails made and being made. They now have named it chemtrail flu.
Here are some pictures from my front yard the other day:

Check out youtube for more on chemtrails and the illnesses it causes. I will post some here.)

Living Water

This is actually a spiritual message... we are made up mostly of water and the thoughts we think have a great impact on our bodies. This is a message that we all need to learn and remember. Jesus said He is the Living Water... the more we think on and learn of Him the more we are healed of our sins and our illnesses. This is what the Lord is showing me.

Hardship Creativity

This weekend I am preparing for a medical 'proceedure' to be had on Monday.  The meds I am taking are disrupting my system!  The good thing about a hardship is that it sometimes  causes me to be creative which is exactly what happened today. A pretty little angel came to my mind and I sat down, picked up a pencil, and began to draw. She doesn't have a name yet but I am sure she will whisper it to me when the time is right.

 Do realize even my sketches are signed and copywritten therefore if anyone uses my art without written permission, they will be procescuted to the full extent of the law.

The Christian Holy Week

I have always loved the Holy Week of Easter because they always show some of my favorite movies even though some aren’t about The Death and Resurrection of Christ. This week I watched a movie called “Jesus” and am in the process of watching “Jesus of Nazareth.” It is always a blessing to watch the Word of God.

This week the Church I attend, “The River Room Church” in Virginia Beach, Va, had Communion, and  an Easter potluckdinner on Friday and then Sunday morning we had a Resurrection breakfast, then headed straight into Church Service. We were so blessed to have a couple speaking who work together to bring forth the message. Jacquiline Maples went to study at a Messianic Bible School in Israel and had such insight into the celebration and her husband,Richard, besides leading the Worship service,  also had a great message. It is wonderful to see them work together to bring forth the Word.

Though I have been a Born Again Christian since the 1970’s, every so often I fall into hard times as many of us do. I received a Word from the Lord that “God is wooing me.” I really needed that word right now because I am going through a hard time.

Thank you Father for your word!

Black and White Sketches. Updating so keep an eye here!

Just in the mood to do some black and white sketches so I inked in the last sketch. I will add them as I do them. Tell me what you think.  






12 March 2016

Sketch from a picture I found online.

After all that I had to do: pool workout, getting some groceries, etc, I came home and did a search for a face to use for sketching. I like to find a photo that I like and then make a sketch with no intention of making the sketch actually look like the person, the purpose is to sketch and get use to the different postitions of the face or the postions. Below is a sketch I did late yesterday afternoon. Hope you like it!

Oh, the paper is actually an off white color but the sky reflected blue on it.
:D

New Angel Sketch

I am in need of sketching some angels in my style of drawing. I learned a lot of things in the Art class I took and they are good, now I need to try and add it all to my art style.  I am hoping that with doing a bunch of sketching the new info will help my art get better. Let’s pray so!

 Do realize even my sketches are signed and copywritten therefore if anyone uses my art without written permission, they will be procescuted to the full extent of the law.

Taking a view of my life.

 I've just been watching "The Walton's" (my absolutely favorite show of all times!) and "Little House on the Prairie" and have realized I don't think I would have made a very good Pioneer woman like Caroline in "Little House" but I've always identified with Olivia on "The Walton's" and feel like I lived my life similiarly to hers. (I watched one episode yesterday where she took a painting class.... I just finished taking an Art Class - something I haven't done in decades literally!.

I remember when I was growing up I loved the Victorian Era and even the Pioneer Era. I've always loved long dresses and long curly hair, making everything by hand, decorating my house with home made items.... and in some ways I lived that kind of life.

When I graduated high school I had absolutely no direction in my life. I loved drawing and writing and making things but had no idea how I could make money from my interests. I worked but wasn't making any money to speak of. I went to college some but still didn't know what I wanted to do and ended up dropping out. I eventually got married and had two sons. We were not financially stable and so I actually ended up making most everything that I decorated our house with: quilts, curtains, wooden country decorative items, stools, shaker clock, pillows, crocheted afghans, crocheted lamp shades, crocheted lace collars, and all kinds of things. It was actually very satisfying. There were some times that I was able to sell some of the things I made by hand and that felt great! And there were times when I actually worked a job outside the house once the boys went to school. I worked at Rose's Dept. Store as a clerk, worked at a Photography Studio fixing pictures, worked at a Florist and clerk at an open air florist in a Mall, and did sell country crafts at parties.

It was satisfying in many ways but there were things about it I didn't like, all the things I didn't like to do when I was growing up: housework, babysitting, couldn't cook... were all the things I ended up doing when I grew up. And though my boys are grown and out on their own I still don't like doing housework, cooking though I must admit I am pretty good at it now.

 I ended up divorced and got remarried. I worked for the first five years of our marriage, lost my job, then got sick with Fibromyalgia. My husband, Burton, had always thought that I should do something with my art and so we printed up some cards and I went store to store selling my art as cards. I had my cards in lots of stores in my hometown and in some places in North Carolina plus was selling online. Had to stop because I had Breast Cancer and had to go through chemo and radiation and then recooperate.

I have been trying to figure out how to restart the business, my poor brain is killing me from all the thinking. Now I am beginning to formulate what I have to do. I am thinking of doing an online group funding to get the money to get the business started on and on the ground running! I'll let you know when I get it started!



06 March 2016

Thursday night I went to the last Art Sketch class. I enjoyed this one because we were actually drawing people. Here are the sketches I made. Oh, the one of the skull was from a couple of weeks ago.

Rose is finished finally!

It took a while but I just now finished this feisty little angel! Now I can start a new one!

Another Angel Update

The more I work on this gal, the more she looks fiesty!


Look at her face! Definitely fiesty!

Then came 2nd Chapter of Acts and other Christian Musicians!

Then I was introduced to Christian music that helped change my life:

2nd Chapter of Acts, Matthew Ward, Annie Herring, Keith Green, Tom Howard, Randy Matthews and more....




















Some of these videos are live videos from the 70's and are not of the best quality but the message is what is the important thing. The message brings life, joy, happiness, peace....  open your heart and let the Holy Spirit come in and speak to you.


 






























Sick and Melancholic but happy, too.

Yesterday I came down with bronchitis. Today I got up feeling a little melancholic, turned on my laptop and the first thing I saw was a picture of Cat Stevens with a video of him singing my favorite song of his: "How can I tell you ."  Instant tears. Cat Stevens and John Denver, though they didn't know it, held my hands through some really hard times in my life. So today we will have a series of concerts and songs to my two favorite musical comforters.

Feeling old today.

I am 59, not ashamed to claim it but there are times when that number really bothers me because I realize that I have not accomplished anything I wanted to. Growing up I wanted to be an actress/actor, did a few plays and loved doing them, I’ve performed in Community theaters, school plays, Christian plays, but I really wanted to do movies and TV… that never happened.
I wanted to be a singer. Had some problems with that one. I love to sing and depending on who you talk to I can sing good or so so. I sang a lot when I was in choir at churches and then leading song services at some churches and at Bible School. I haven’t been going to a church that had song services that there was an availability for someone like me. Sooooo having not exercized my voice hardly at all, I can confidently say my voice is not good.
I wanted to be a writer. I have written poetry and did have one published. I have written stories, participated in Nanowrimo for a few years, and I still have several stories I keep attempting to work on. There was a time I was working on some stories and someone took my ex aside and said he shouldn’t let me write because I could end up living in a fantasy world… well, if that person wouldn’t be in my fantasy world I would love it!
3dccd-journaling2bcopy
I wanted to be an artist. I spent a lot of time in my bedroom growing up and drew like crazy! In my teens I use to draw pictures from the teen magazines and did really well! I didn’t really get back into artwork until around 1999, I had gotten married, had two gorgeous sons, was a stay at home Mom and occassionally worked part time jobs to help with the finances. During those years I only created cards for friends and family. After a divorce I began to draw again while working temp jobs (had to have something to do) and soon I was drawing all the time. I got married in 1999 and my new husband said I should do something with it so when I lost my permanent job 5 years later, we got 10 different pictures created into pictures and began to sell them in stores in Norfolk where I live, in NC, and online. Sometimes it was hard to get out because I had Fibromyalgia but I did what I could. Then in 2010 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, closed my biz, had surgery, went through Chemo, and Radiation.
Well, I am a 5 year Survivor and ready to get back to work. I’ve been doing artwork a lot but I really really really want to find an Artist Rep who could do all the bizness side of it all… I don’t have that great a biz mind and my “rememberer” doesn’t want to work all that well at times.
So I haven’t accomplished much of what I wanted to as a youngster but I am still attempting, but that 59 year number reminds me I am no spring chicken…

Cat photobombed me!

Got me some basal cell cancer on my forehead and last week had a Moh's proceedure to remove it. Got 8 stitches and then my eyes swelled up like when I went through chemo. Well, it is very hard to wash your hair when you have 8 stitches on your forehead so it gets greasy. Last night I took some selfies to post around to encourage peeps to use sunscreen but the pictures were way bad so I erased them.... all but one... my cat photobombed me! She is looking at me and saying "Hankdag, what happened to you?"
