KD, Janet fish and plastic wrap

My painting class.. fun but ohhhh so busy. Tons and tons of work.. we were shown some works by an artist the other night and I just thought her work was insanely detailed and inspirational. Her name is Janet fish , you can google her.. or go to www.janetfish.net or www.artnet.com/artist/6229/janet-fish.html

I am absolutely blown away by how detailed she paints.. I can't even think of how much TIme she spends on each piece. The way she paints plastic wrap!!

I love love LOVE art.. i don't think I could go a day without it.. and im finding lately that the most random things can be really inspiring and beautiful.

Yesterday, in one of my classes we were shown a series of videos. One was of a dance group who used nudity in their work and normally this kind of thing would turn me off.. but i was so inspired at how talented and how much time was put into what they were doing. It was men and women of different races..all so talented and got up on stage to tell a story.. mostly of strength and their beliefs. It was so encouraging and fun to watch how passionate they were.   It made me want to go out and take a dance class....( just probobly not one that would be involved in dis-robing). haha

Keep your life free from the love of money and be content wih what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you. So we say wih confidence, "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?"[Hebrews 13:5-6

I was especially drawn to this scripture this morning while reading and wanted to share it. Those words.. "NEVER WILL I LEAVE YOU.. and NEVER WILL I FORSAKE YOU".  

God has promised us this.. it's so reassuring to read and remember that he is there for us reguardless.. he knows what we struggle with  and knows what's going on in our lives and all we have to do is believe he will ultimately provide for us.    Why should we ever have to be afraid? Fear is not from God.

With what is going on today in the world and our economy-everyone feeling the stress from money, I believe these are good verses to cling to.. and remember.

One more thing to touch on.. KD this is for you.   The LORD is our strength.  Through HIM we are able to do all things. Luke 18 verse 27.. "What is impossible for people Is possible with God."  Rely on him, you can't do everything on your own.

Love,

Lauren
