Trapper's Cabin: Project 13 (dedicated to Pastor Hill)

 PAINTING:  

      I AM BACK WITH BOB!  THIS IS MINE, BUT ONE OF HIS.  LET ME THINK.....DID I LEARN ANY NEW STUFF ON THIS ONE?  YES...YES I DID.  THE WATER TECHNIQUE THAT MAKES IT LOOK LIKE LIGHT SHINING ON IT.  I USED A DEEPER BLUE ON THE FAR ENDS OF THE CANVAS AND PULLED IT TOWARD THE MIDDLE, BUT LEFT THE CANVAS WHITE IN THE MIDDLE.  THEN, WHEN I BLENDED, IT PULLED A LIGHTER BLUE THROUGH THE MIDDLE, BUT DIDN'T COVER UP THE WHITE.  I LIKE THIS TECHNIQUE ALOT.  I FEEL LIKE MY TREES ARE NOT HAPPY LITTLE TREES YET.  THEY ARE NOT IN ANY DEEP DEPRESSION OR ANYTHING, BUT NOT ALL THE WAY HAPPY, SO I AM GOING TO HAVE TO TRY HARDER TO FOLLOW BOB ON THOSE. 

 

 

PRAYER: 

     ONE OF THE PEOPLE WHO HELPED TEACH ME TO PRAY WAS PASTOR HILL.  HE WAS A SPIRITUAL FATHER TO ME.  HE TOUCHED COUNTLESS LIVES. WORDS WILL NOT EVEN BEGIN TO DESCRIBE ALL THE WAYS THAT HE POURED IN OUR LIVES.  I PICKED THIS PICTURE TO PAINT FOR A REASON. 

 

     PASTOR HILL AND PASTOR DEBBIE USED TO BE OUR SINGLE'S LEADERS.  WE WOULD GO ON SINGLES RETREATS.  ONE YEAR WE WENT TO ASHEVILLE, NC.  (THAT IS WHAT THIS PIC REMINDS ME OF).  SO, AFTER WE HAVE HAD A FEW OF OUR SESSIONS, WE DECIDE TO GO DOWNTOWN TO A FESTIVAL.  WE ARE ALL IN A GROUP WALKING AND TALKING AND PASTOR HILL JUST HAPPENED TO BE CLOSEST TO ME AND MY FRIENDS.  I DON'T KNOW WHAT WE WERE WERE TALKING ABOUT WHEN

 

                                                           WHAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

 

I DOUBLED OVER NOT SURE WHAT IN THE WORLD JUST HAPPENED.  THE FIRST FACE I SAW WAS PASTOR HILL'S AND HE JUST HAD A LOOK OF "DO I LAUGH OR DOES SHE NEED HELP OR WHAT IN THE WORLD JUST HAPPENED?"  CALL ME GRACE.....I HAD JUST RUN SMACK DAB INTO A PARKING METER WITH THE MIDDLE OF MY BODY.  BIZARRE.  WHEN I REALIZED I WASN'T HURT, I STARTED LAUGHING.  I DON'T THINK PASTOR HILL EVER LAUGHED.  HE ASKED ME IF I WAS OKAY AND JUST SHOOK HIS HEAD, AND CHUCKLED A LITTLE.

 

     I WAS 27 WHEN I MET HIM.  20 YEARS AGO.  HE KNEW ME AS A SINGLE MOM. HE GUIDED ME IN THAT PROCESS.

 

          (DON'T PLAY HOUSE AND YOU WON'T HAVE TO PLAY DIVORCE). 

          (BEING SINGLE DOES NOT MEAN YOU ARE 1/2 OF A PERSON.)

 

     HE GUIDED ME IN PURCHASING MY FIRST HOME. 

 

          (NOW, DON'T FALL IN LOVE WITH THE FIRST HOUSE YOU SEE).   

 

     HE GUIDED ME THROUGH RELATIONSHIPS, PRE-MARRIAGE COUNSELING, AND  TWO MORE KIDS.

 

          (NOW, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO DOWN THE ROAD WHEN YOU HAVE              A  DISAGREEMENT AND HE DOESN'T DO WHAT YOU WANT HIM TO DO?)

 

    HE TAUGHT ME ABOUT FAITH AND PRAYER AND  STANDING ON THE WORD.  EVEN AFTER WE MOVED AWAY, I KNEW THAT IF I TEXTED HIM OR CALLED HIM TO BE PRAYING FOR SOMETHING AND STANDING ON THE WORD....HE WOULD.  I WILL MISS HIM AND ALL OF HIS WISDOM, BUT I AM SO THANKFUL THAT HE WAS A PART OF OUR LIVES AND ALWAYS WILL BE.
