Pottery is the craft, but the Glazing is my Art.
I've been working on a 90 day, Beth Moore Bible Story about Paul since 2010. Spastic as that may seem, I have really enjoyed the study. It is like an old friend I visit occasionally. One particular lesson talked about writing my story on what Christ means to me.
She wrote how in 4 simple steps the process can be done. This is my summation of what she said.
A Blessed Life - Living Proof
My earliest memory was when I was 8 years old. I was touched by God through the Holy Spirit at a Camp Meeting during the altar call. Being young and naive, I didn't know what it was, but I remember the feeling. My whole body tingled. It was a personal experience which confused me greatly. I did not know how to share my feelings.
When I was 17, I was in a car wreck. Spent 33 days in the hospital semi-conscious. My mom & dad fretted over me, not knowing the outcome. I recovered with only slight imperfections; but my mind would take longer to heal. I graduated HS, went on to college never missing a beat. But my mind was physically damaged. My emotions were all over the place. Spent 4 quick years in college. Received my degree, but I did not attend my college graduation ceremony. Too much pomp and circumstance.
Moved away from my parents, struck out on my own. Spent 2 years away, 1 failed marriage and came home. Fast-forward 2 more years, met Steve, my husband. God said he was the one. Moved away from my parents again, but this time I had a protector. Trials & tribulation still show up, we persevered.
Now 30+ years later, we are still loving each other. Living a life where I notice the Hand of God working daily.
