Faithful Forty: Day 36

Northern New Mexico

Did you know Jesus Christ has a wonderful sense of humor?

While on their recent visit, my nieces encouraged me to share my dreams about Jesus. I needed to check my gut on this. I know I’m not the only who has dreams about Jesus, and the prince of darkness.

I’m focusing on the most recent dream I had about Jesus: I was outside. The sun was brilliant. To my left, as I looked up to the sky, I saw a cloud with amazing rainbow-like colors. An angel appeared to cradle a woman in distress. Just as I began to sharpen my focus on the scene, my attention was drawn to activity in front of me, up toward the sky. The angel and woman to the left disappeared.

Jesus’ face came into view. I had been holding a camera. At this point, Jesus smiled, and began posing for a picture, well, several. As He turned His face left and right, tilting His chin slightly up and down, I started snapping away. His smile contagious, I started smiling too. His brown hair fell in soft waves above his shoulders. His mustache and beard perfectly trimmed.

I couldn’t believe my eyes. The dream as much as I can remember, ends there. The next morning, a feeling of peace and happiness permeated my being; setting me free for a time, of burdens, worriess, and fear.

I’m hoping sharing this dream will bring you peace and solace. If Jesus can smile through earthly disaster in all its forms, can’t we too? Maybe, just for awhile?

Many blessings, Sandi 🙏🏼

Art inspires inner fires

I’m not an artist. But these are extraordinary times, that call for extreme measures. Peace of mind; a way for me to express beauty, oftentimes through stress, confusion, and other emotional rollercoasters to varying degrees – led me to divine doodling. My doodling during work meetings, phone calls, and what seemed like boredom, actually led me to feeling inner peace, thereby creating images that capture my moods, emotions, chaos, and a slew of other deep stuff.

O’vehlu: Journey to God. What does this mean exactly? How does it tie in, doodling and the divine? Our individual journeys, lead us to the most sacred of spaces; in our mind, bodies, and souls.

Why am I sharing this?

  • Why not?
  • You don’t have to be an artist to channel creativity, your own divinity through art, or in this case doodling.
  • Would love to explore and hear about others’ experience through creative arts; including all other mediums in the arts.

I look forward to sharing this form of art, because doodling doesn’t require any kind of specialty in the arts. No academic degrees required!

Many blessings,

Sandi
