One thing is for sure, life is messy but God can still inspire us and re-purpose us. God is more than just HOPE, he is our ALL!
You might have stopped by looking for music. I still have my music on the music page but... a few year ago my life (over night) became that messy I was talking about in the title and I had to take a hiatus, only to find myself not heading back on the road. I was completely lost. My then husband of 30 years moved me to a new state because of a job opportunity, found himself still unhappy and took off to another state and left me in Georgia. In the middle of all that I had to have a major surgery that left me with no muscle strength to regain my vocals. It has taken me 6 years to figure out my purpose. Divorced, alone in a new state feeling like God possible planted me in, scared and questioning almost everything I was confused but I wasn't bitter! I was wrapped in a lot of emotions but not bitterness. Why am I placing this on my front page you might be asking? Well, it's because I found my new purpose. After 6 long years in the wilderness I believe God has finally redirected my life, re-purposed me and gave me a new vision with just the slightest change. He has moved me from music to painting. Keeping me in the arts.
Who would have known that to even be possible with my life? The only answer to that is God. He has placed me in a new ministry direction I hope you all will wrap yourself into and help me help other women. Let me introduce you all to my new "Painted Praize" site for my art, designed with a purpose. A portion of the money I receive goes back into a fund to help divorced women who's husbands have abandoned them, stopped supporting them and have left them to fend for themself. These women have very little resources and many of them have been left in their 50's. I want to help them through Painted Praize. I hope this will excite you to know that every purchase helps women here in the USA to get through some of their biggest hurdles. I have big plans and only God can open the doors and create the opportunities. So far...he has blessed this mission. I can't wait to see what he has in store! Please come along and let's make this happen! But, for now please watch for new art to be displayed. You will see a blend of an old site with a new site design. Music will stay but added with be new art pieces along with a new bright future of Hope, Joy and much Peace!
