I will cheer you on.

May 14, 2014






Some of what you make will make you annoyed.

It will be  inadequate.

It will not be what you want.

It will make you question if you have any business going after your dreams.

Recipes will flop.

Paintings will look like crap… I mean absolute crap…ask me how I know.

You may have to sand the guitar body so many times you wonder if there will be any wood left.

You will sit at a desk and stare at lined paper and end with just doodles…

blank screens will stare back where your book is supposed to appear

people will poison the well and stomp off from your friendly little communities

You will have to re write a song so many times… sigh.

depending on what you are going after… somethings will die… again, ask me how I know.

All those things are easier.. .. than the people.

There will  be people who will tell you that you are wasting your time… or who do you think you arewhat do you know about that…. that is so stupidwhat a waste of timecan you make a living at that?

and then… there is your self…. and you know you are your worst critic…. I don’t need to repeat the lies that you tell yourself… you actually recite them in your sleep.



I will cheer you on.

I want to tell you right now that what you are doing is one of the most important things I have ever seen.

The way you are going at your dream inspires me.

The way you are stumbling and falling and getting back up brings tears to my jaded cynical eyes.

The way you answer the call of a Creator in your life… gives me hope in what I am trying.

So I will cheer you on.

I want you to get there.

I want you to have those unique moments with a Creator… because those are yours… but I want to hear about them.

I want to laugh with you.

I want to cry with you.

I want to cheer you on.

Because if we all just stand up and flip the finger to the voices that scream and steal from us... if we all do this together ….

we will bring heaven into eye shot of others.

we will  constantly be pursuing moments with a King… we will be seeking His wisdom and His understanding to make these creations great!

and they will be great.

we just need to weed through the not so great… practice pieces… finding out what we like and what we don’t.

But even in the practice … He is there.. He is here.  He has been waiting for you to find the courage to walk out the dreams He put in your heart… a compass  pointing right to Him.

where you are going.. where we are going is so great ,the moments with a Creator so humongous and life changing  that  no amount of fear should intimidate you.

    Oh please oh please!! Had an appointment set to meet with the printer and little missy started having seizures again. The Dr has been sent four videos since our ER visit on Good Friday and a sleep study was done, and we have heard nothing. These spells are awful and now don’t appear to be seizures but more of a startle spell. I just can’t leave the house until noon. (Spells are worst in the morning and the printer said mornings are best for them) I’ve been trying to get up the courage to call the printer but, well, the voices of not good enough and not having enough money to even start. So what do I do? Organize my closet. Paint the back of my kitchen cabinets. Anything but just taking another step forward. I can feel my face turn bright pink and hot as I type this out, tears in my eyes, heart beating fast. I just realized last night that I had my running shoes on. Again.
    I’ve been praying for someone to help me figure out how to do this. Make a plan. It has to be possible. I just don’t have business know- how. I know God has the answers. Thank you for a timely post.

      anna you are awesome…
      I fully believe you can do this. I do.. and I am not just blowing smoke at cha. You have amazing strength that can bring children into an understnading that other people can’t even dream of … that is strength. You have gone further and harder than most ever do. You are an amazing creative thinker. You have to be! Youhave raised healhty wonderful children and then you started again… everyday you wake up and think of ways to stimulate and encourage that girl of yours to not just survive but to thrive… you may be one of the most creative people I know. So I know that it is in you.
      It is in you to creatively think how to solve this.
      IT is in you on how to convince someone to work on your time schedule.
      IT is in you to creatively think how to make it happen.
      Please don’t negate what you do with the kitchen cabinets and organizing your closet… because are just you being creatively busy… you are built for it… hard wired for it… so you while you paint I don’t doubt for a moment you are planning and figuring out how to make this happen.
      You are amazing and Iam inspired by who He has created you to be.

    Tears. Thank you. Possibly not running, just processing. Being quiet and prayerful. These are positive ways to look at what I naturally do. I get overwhelmed and step back to look at the big picture and just wait it out. I trust God has an answer. He blessed me with this talent, and with this special little one. He knows my heart, I want this to work so that when we are no longer able to care for her, my art could.
    Thank you for the pep talk and the prayers. It’s all perspective.
