Time to Sit Back and Unwind!
"Sista's Deeply Rooted"
We made it through a long winter and a bashful spring. I am getting ready for my out door art festivals. Starting with the Easton Art Affair, June 21-23, 2013. I have a few other projects coming up but I am really excited about this one. Easton is the perfect spot to see some wonderful art and while you are strolling along you can stop at one of the many great restaurants for a nice glass of wine. Please say a toast to me as I live in my purpose. Stop by my booth, say hello, unwind and see some of my new work. I have been BUZY.
I am watching Oprah Winfrey's master class. I am always so inspired by her and by all that she has overcome in her life. Most folks aren't aware of her troubled childhood. She is like many of us, a rare pearl which started as a mere grain of sand and through the crush of many challenges has gracefully morphed into this brilliant luminous pearl.
Oprah said she was unwanted as a child and her purpose today, because of this experience is to make people feel wanted, understood, and validated. This is powerful stuff. Each one of us is here for a reason and a purpose. The important life lesson is for us to identify and live within the blessing of our purpose. To continue the journey and assignment God planned for us long ago.
This is the life I am trying to lead. I am living within God's promise and though it might not make sense to many of you, this is the path I have chosen. I have had the big job title, the big house, nice cars and closets full of clothes and still have felt empty. Today, I am on the best and scariest journey of my life. I am obedient to my soul. I have now learned that "less, is truly more." I was the proverbial "Bag Lady" that Erica Badu sung about, "dragging all that stuff like that" but no more. I and streamlining and already feeling lighter. I am cleaning out closets and giving away those things that no longer serve me. My mind is clearing, my soul is rejoicing and my creativity is soaring. Don't get me wrong, I still get scared, but I am truly walking by faith, not by sight.
My intention is to continue to be a positive example of God's sweet grace for my dear family and friends. Living my life within my purpose, a life filled with vibrant color and unadulterated creativity. Bringing (contributing) beautiful and thought provoking works of art to this world in my own flavor.
Won't you also commit to finding and living your purpose. The world would be so much better if we all did.
Please come see me up at Easton June 21-23, 2013 and keep checking back to hear some of my other events and adventures in walking by faith, not by sight.
I have also updated my website, please visit www.blindfaithfineart.com If you're on Pinterest, pin me. Facebook, like me and Twitter, follow me and if you see me on the street, please simply connect with me, even if its just an. approving smile. I am buoyed by your positive energy.
Life is a blank canvas, fill it with the color of you!
Peace and blessings and Have a Wonderful Summer
