More Buttons!

The first painting in the buttons series is well on its way to being done. My fingers are so very sore as I still have yet to sew all of the massive amount of buttons on the 1st part of the series. I am in the midst of preparing 2 more canvases for the series and every time I blink another idea of one to add pops up. It's amazing...never have I been so on fire about the things that I am creating and I do indeed thank JESUS!

I ended up taking out the camera yesterday and shooting the buttons that you see (color scheme for the next piece). I still have a lot of learning to do with that camera...I really do. The more I shoot, the more I will learn. As a matter of fact, I have been asked to do a shoot for a family function of a friend in the fall. I will be well prepared for the event.

So, today as I sat in church, there was some wonderful words of wisdom spewed from the mouth of the servant of God. The topic was Exchanging a Title for a Towel. It was thought provoking and made me think of my personal walk and if I was indeed doing the things that I needed to do for God with the right heart. Do I have a performance driven faith? Am I a servant unto God that works and expects Him to do because I am faithful in duty unto Him? Do I understand that God has a will that will always supersedes my level of faith?

All of the questions made me think of another segment to add as I close out my blogs. A little something to get you all thinking. This will be the first one. I pray you all enjoy!

Pearls of Wisdom:
Whomever you love or fall in love with will have a stench indeed. If someone is going to love you, they have to put up with your stench. True love says, "I am going to love you in spite of your stench".

Are you dealing with someones stench today? If so, take time to appreciate each others funk. Remember, what is funky to one man, smells oh so rosy to another!

Be blessed!

Absolutely charming! I can't wait to see the finished product(s)

Hhmm I love your stench analogy very much. It gives things a whole other smell (smile)

Thanks lovebabz! Yeah, I am kind of souped to see the finished product too. I get more and more exited daily. I will keep everyone posted.

Yeah...sometimes love can get smelly, but not smelly enough to do without altogether!
