Glass Globs

Thom's working night and day. I've had a lot of alone time and have been spending it improving the talents I have. Recently I've been on a huge glass excursion in my little studio. Making pendants, bead sets, buttons, etc. On the side, I mostly paint naked women. I just love the curves of their bodies, so fun to paint. While in my studio yesterday I thought I would try to make a naked woman out of glass. I did succeed and now all I want to do is make more. The whole time I heard my puny husband crackin wise jokes like, "somebody's got fire up their butt". He's the worst at jokes, but it makes him, him. I have them for sale on my etsy account if you would like to purchase one. I can make it into a necklace for you if you would like as well.

New Piano Beginnings

When I was a kid my Aunt Ester would come over and teach me how to play out of that old hymnal that of course had the smell of an old library. Yellow pages and all.

Years later I decided to try piano again, with Sister Sandy. Hmm. . . God really does rest her soul these days no doubt. Forgive me Sandy, hated her teachings. I never had any fun with that.

Now fifteen years later I find myself with a weighted keyboard, 88 keys, sitting in my husband's "band room". What should be the dinning room of my quaint home. Monday I took my hands to that thing, and decided I'd try a third time. It's the charm right?

I'm loving it. Hands hurt to type now. If they're going to hurt, I'd rather them hurt from playing music.

Signing off for tonight to get back to those sounds.

a dream

I had a dream last week that I want to post. I feel like it represents the body of the church right now in America.

We were all running down a hallway together. Narrow, much like the road we are to run. God was pouring out buckets upon us and the water rushed across our feet as we ran. We rejoiced so much in the fresh water, crystal clear. Rejoiced for it because we were quenched, so thirsty. Myself and few other people had colors flowing out of their fingers, colors we don't have here. Like glo sticks. Colors streaking all over the walls. I loved it. Beautiful and so happy.

Then a small argument broke out amongst three people. And two things happened. One, it slowed down everyone else b/c they had to run around them. And two, everyone ran on without them. They would have to catch up. They didn't keep in the momentum.

Keep your relationships on guard. Don't let arguments linger. We're all running this together. Stay in the water, stay in the color, the rejoicing, praise, and happiness. Let's do this together people.
