A story ...

Good morning!
   I will get the word/poem on real soon but first I want to share with you this story ...

There was an artist ... she drew beautiful pictures ...
she sold a few here and there but mostly people just passed her art by.
One day a man came up to her and said how much is this beautiful drawing?
She replied, so weary of rejection, "How much is it worth to you?"
He smiled the sweetest smile and got out his check book and wrote out a check for an enormous
amount!  She asked him, "why so much?" and he said, "you have been faithful to not remove your art long enough for me to see it ... I knew the amount I'd give for the drawing that God showed me in my heart ... I have known for years that I'd see it one day and what I'd pay for it!   We had a destiny ... we had a common goal ...  we believed and saw it come to pass!!!"

Don't ever give up ... God has a plan!!!

Hope God encouraged you with that as much as He did me!!!
Love you sooo much xo


  1. I had just brushed my teeth and I heard this story in my heart ... like I hear the poems ... I knew I was to share it ... like I do the poems!
    Love you all! xo

    1. Sorry for the run-on sentences and lack of taking time to do it right!
      I'm use to poetry ;) xo

  2. The Lord showed the man what he would one day do.
    Maybe the man was poor all those years ago but by what the Lord showed him - he knew one day he'd be wealthy!
    The woman had a need ... she was using her gifts and selling what she had ... day after day and year after year she kept believing.
    In one moment in time the two met ... they both had a need ... God had the supply for each!
    The man needed a vision ... so did the woman.
    Would the man have been able to give what the woman needed without a vision? Would the woman have been able to not give up without a vision?

  3. I wonder who this was for ... God told me to share it! Who has a vision? I'd love to hear about it!
    Love you all ... sweet sleep xo

  4. That's such a cool story!! I always have to have a vision on the inside before I can paint, draw or even really take a good picture! Without it I have no confidence in what I'm doing. :)

    1. I sooo understand that! You and Andrea have a wonderful vision right now!
      Love 4ever, mommy xo

  5. That is a beautiful story! Wish it was talking about me:) I love you!

    1. I think it's talking about all of us! Don't let go of what God puts in our hearts ... we won't!!!
      Someone else's miracle could have to do with us! God works through us!!! I just heard a Bible teaching on that ... Confirmation!!!
      I know we won't stop ...
      Love 4ever, mommy xo

  6. I want to be used of God to bless others in all the ways the Lord wants to flow through me! Having a word for a weary one along the way, to give as the Lord leads ... to be the vessel of blessing others when I see a need! Money is needful on earth and God is our Source ... when we have need of money for something how does God get it to us? Doesn't He use another person? It has always been that way for me ... employers, parents, friends and family, a creative idea ... someone buying something from me ...
    When the Lord moves me to give - I am SO aware that He uses people to get money to those in need. We are truly Blessed to be a blessing! The story is so encouraging to me ... I want to be the one that bought the art! I want to refresh the weary one along the way :) It is more blessed to give than receive! We can't out give God! He gets it back to us ... more than we gave! Then we get to do it again with Him ... a river, not a stagnant pool. To understand is joy!!! I love you all so very, very much!!! xo
