Notes of Faith N the Garden - Confident


Well it's almost August again. Well it's almost time for most children to go back to school. Well that old apple tree is full of red and green apples again. Well that crape myrtle is back to sprinkling soft hot pink confetti all over the yard again. Well, well, well ... is there a pattern here, do I here a rhythm or a beat. I have experienced some heart changing events over the last few days which have blessed my spirit in a unique and special way. For such a long time, I thought there was something wrong with me, mainly because everyone I knew told me so ... you're too sensitive ... too emotional ... you love too deeply. Now that my children are older ... they watch for the swelling of the nose before the flood of tears, when someone or something touches my heart. There it is again the abundance of tears, tears for the children who know hunger as a friend. I've been weeping for them for so many years and now thur the most amazing power of the Holy Spirit, I may have some answers for my tears. What have I said yes to, I don't really know, but the list goes something like this. Build a website for a church in Africa ... Create a photo book - Kenya Water Ministry and I met this woman earlier this year. I'm saying yes to Africa. Cape Town or Kenya. Yes, to the tears of yesterday. No to the fears of today. Yes, I'm emotional, yes, I love deeply, yes, I'm too sensitive. Yes, I can CRY you a river. For some time now, I've know ... without one single doubt ... there ain't nothing wrong with me and my tears. Humbly Confident

  $5 Inspired Studios Magazine is here! Inspirations come and Inspirations go, then inspirations linger in our spirit, untouchable, by the outside world and we press on. Others call us crazy, but we press on. We ourselves, understand it not ... but we press on. Inspired Studios Magazine; shares stories of pressing on in our visions, that none can see.  I have a theory, about GOD, abundance and the gift of inspiration, it goes something like this ... GOD passes out inspiration, like Santa throwing candy at a Christmas Parade. Some children run, and grab the sweet stuff, eat it, before a parent can say no. Some, stand on the sidewalk wishing, they had the courage to step off the curb and grab it. And, then, there are the children, who quietly grab, themselves some candy, slip it, into their pockets, planning to unwrap it later, when they can  enjoy it's sweetness, it's flavor and it's bite. A Facebook post  this past Spring, led me to Seth Godin's post about the fut
