I prayed my heart out!

Sometimes I feel heavy burdens on me. They hold me down and keep me from pushing myself forward. Heavy obstacles and fears that well up inside my heart when I have goals to complete and challenges to meet. Fears that make me question if I can do it or not.

The questions turn into realites when they come to me. They create doubts that hurt my spirit and turn into an inability to complete tasks at hand. I know through God I can over come these things.

So today I prayed my heart out and placed every fear and insecurity in Gods hands and asked him to remove them so I can do what i am called to do in this life. When I did this it felt good. Energy surged through my body and I was ready to start. Fear is a burden that will incapacitate us and hold us back from our potential. It creates doubt and a burden that turns to depression and finally a belief that that we can't do something. We have to believe we can over come fear and believe we can be better than we are and most of all believe we can actually be what it is we desire.

Most of all we have to believe in the power of God and the courage he puts in each and every one of us so we can over come our burdens and never look back.

I don't want to look back. Today I move forward with courage and strength because in God all things are possible.


Matthew 11:28-29 (New International Version)

28"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

So Tired (will edit this later)

It is my first day back since the convention And I am exhausted. i am so glad I took a flight instead of the bus or train because I would have still been on the road getting home even at this moment. I slept until like 3pm I was so tired and now I am about to get back to drawing. I have a lot of quick sketches to get done so I want to get on the ball and knock them out.

Thanks to everyone that stopped y the table and that took time to view both me and Sherry's work. Also thanks to those that bought sketch books and prints and sketches at the table. Special thanks to Tom Andress! It was a very special surprise to get to meet him and speak with him at the convention. he has been a long time supporter of both me and Sherry. It was a great honor.

I met so many great artists and talked to so many wonderful people. I also learned a great deal about my work and my audience by being able to have so many people come by and look at my stuff.

Thanks to everyone that helped to get me to this convention by purchasing my work through commissions and on ebay! This has all been a great blessing.

I still have some sketch books left and many prints as well I will be making those available soon to whoever wants them.

God Bless you all!
