An exciting delivery this morning - this framed Scott Scheidly print is too good for words! One for the personal collection...!
Thanks, Lauren! I totally agree! Plus I love the idea that art can be ctaered on the side of a building, under the cover of darkness, and then revealed in the light of day kind of like when museums change their exhibits overnight! Very cool, indeed.
Well, since we are being honest here May I cefsons to you that when A Deeper Story first launched, I was more than a little bit jealous? Ha! It’s true. I looked at the contributor list and saw this AMAZING group of people whom I love and admire and I didn’t want to feel jealous because I wasn’t included, but there it was. Also, sadness. I couldn’t even read it for the first few weeks because it made me sad. For myself. I’m mature like that.But then God helped me get over myself a little bit (a lot) and the sadness lifted and the jealousy became an eye-rolling memory.And THEN the timing was right and who knows? the Spirit moved in you to ask me and I slipped in to that list and it means so, so, so much to me. Same thing with the book I’m working on. Girl, do you know how long we shopped that thing around? Do you know the rejection? The disillusionment and disappointment? Gah, talk about sadness. And then we just shelved the whole thing and I surrendered it, but still every time I read of a new book deal that too, too familiar pang of hurt, rejection, sadness, and envy. It was never more than a breath away. But two YEARS after we shelved it, God saw fit to bring it to publication. Such mystery.What am I even trying to say here? That I relate to your words on so many levels and we could sit and talk for hours about this, I think. (Preferably in front of your cozy fireplace, coffee in hand.) God has gifted and empowered you to do Kingdom work where you are the tricky thing is He prefers it to be played out on His calendar. His timing, I will never understand it. But there is surrender in knowing I don’t have to understand. He has been good to me in walking me through the days of hurt and disappointment, hugging me close as I would hold close one of my own children, giving me a squeeze and whispering in my ear, I know, baby. I know. I am so proud to know you, to call you friend, and to be part of the incredible work that you engineer. That IS gifting and I pray you will know that your work is changing lives.
