THE PICTURE

 

“Good morning world. Yesterday I told you that I was going to paint a real picture of the story that I am continuing to write on my blog. Then being on the fence about the ending.... I requested that you waited to see the picture.


I also asked you "is there something missing in your picture of life?"


Then following after my letters foot steps,

as I left you with that missing thought...

I actually painted the picture!

 

Accordingly thinking about many delightful sights that remind me of summertime as that picture came to my mind....I have always loved seeing life as,


a story we are living.


I also appreciate seeing  life as a picture that we are all painting. 


So thinking about writing, painting, and having sight while not being blind, I have to say I love seeing the things of summertime  that come to mind, as they also come to life.


Yes I adore seeing things in my world as they light up my smile. 

 

Therefore opening and closing many doors being a lover of life I still love  many things as time is going by.


So naturally 

being an author of books, 

I love writing stories. 


Also being a professional artist of the impressionist kind…..

trying to capture life on canvas also in words….and design 

I additionally love painting. 

 

Well I kind of love painting. 


Saying that to me 

just like living life,

I have found and still am finding today… that predicting the outcome of the future, while loving, writing, and painting is  stressful and overwhelming!


Happily, however at the end of the day trusting the Lord to lead my way, I always love the way the story and the painting 

turn out.

 

Accordingly wanting to see how the story needs to be illustrated....

yesterday I actually took out my paints of both pigment and letters….

And holding brush in hand 

I painted you a nice picture 

that I am going to call....

“Summertime.”

 

Then using the colors playing around in my mind, as I am thinking more about  summertime the story started coming to life.


But as I was painting my picture of life, 

I realize that everyday no matter how old

I get or how hard I try

I can not get away from the past that made me laugh and sigh.


Subsequently all of my summer memories seem to take me back in time to the river and lake where I grew up 

happily screaming at the top of my lungs, dreaming, and scheming! 

 

So being an artist of life…. 

I love my memories of the river, rocks, and lake where I spent my days that focused on special summer times. 

 

Therefore opening up summers door once more thinking about more things that I adore, 

today I still love seeing the sights of a winding river running along its way, and the waves playing in the moonlight. 

 

Yes I still love the funny scary scene where children’s knees are knocking as they are contemplating  jumping off the high dive. 

 

I also still love seeing the little creatures in the wakes swimming bravely by me, trying not to catch an unkind predators eye. 

 

And I still love seeing the fish as they glide by delighting my sight. 

 

Yes indeed, while painting my picture of life with so many colors and memories, 

there are many good times that come to my mind when I welcome in 

“Summertime!” 

 

And today those sights are still favorites of mine as I see children running, also sneezing, and wheezing, 

as they are climbing cotton wood trees 

playing peek-a-boo in the green leaves, 

while watching the blue sky hanging above them in the white clouds breeze.


Yes there will forever be great glee for me, as I still enjoy a bright yellow sun, while smelling the red roses as a rainbow 

glides over the home kissed canvas. 


Absolutely loving many things

I similarly love the colors of memories and good times that I am painting . 

 

Yes indeed to me "Summertime" is quite a delightful Picture to be seen. 

 

And in my mind’s eye none of those sites will ever go away, 

because they are all a part of summer time today! 

 

But then I started thinking …

Okay wait a minute 

somethings missing!


Yes I am sure that one very important  color is not there!

 

Yes those bright sights and colors are sublime…


BUT 

there is a subdued often over looked color that needs to be added…

every time! 


Because my absolute most favorite thing to see during summertime for any reason during any season is not mentioned in the picture!

 

And in saying that, 

since my picture that I am really painting 

needs a few more touches here or there (and time to dry)

today I am again going to leave you contemplating what I am saying, and Why!?


I will also leave you wondering 

what I am painting.


So that means you have one more day to figure out, what could be missing in your borrowed time....

before I revel the final nice finished picture tomorrow and tell you what the Devine story is all about!” Joslin Fitzgerald

 

Thank you for reading my blog please know that you have just been prayed for( as I am also asking that you are praying for me. ) In that prayer please additionally know that every word I am writing is Spirit sent in its heavenly direction leading you to....

 

Your Prayer of Salvation

 

Dear Jesus, I know I have done bad things in the past, and that I have done bad things today, and that I will continue to do bad things tomorrow as I am going along my way.  Yes that makes me a sinner, just like everyone else in the world every day, with all of the bad things I am doing and saying.

 

So, because I am a sinner I know I need a Savior....

 

Therefore my sins and my unhappiness are why I have come to you today, as I am silently praying, because I want to be eternally happy, and I need to be forever saved.

 

In saying that Jesus, I believe that you were born on Christmas Day.  I believe Jesus, that you lived a perfect life that is written down in the Bible to teach me what is wrong, and show me what is right. And I believe Jesus, in your love for me that you died on the Cross to save me from all of my sins day and night. Yes Jesus I believe you died, and defeated the grave as you arose from the dead on the third day. Yes I believe you are Alive forevermore and that you are living inside my heart and soul eternally night and day!

 

Thus in believing Jesus, you are the Son of God I am asking for your forgiveness for all my sins that I know, and those I do not know that I have committed, including the ones that I will continue to daily wallow in, as I claim in Your Eternal scriptural promise in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit that I am now going to heaven.

 

Yes I claim in my new faith this very Minute that I am saved, because you died for me on the Cross, and in your arising on the third day, I know I  will not go to my endless grave. In that statement that just saved my life Thank you Jesus, I am now whole since the Holy Spirit lives within my soul!

 

Therefore in this prayer I believe that I am born again into heavens sight, and in your Biblical Promise of salvation written in the scriptures I have received everlasting life! Thus as I am asking you to change my blind darkness to guiding light you are forever my Savior, Jesus Christ.

 

Amen

 

Absolutely I pray that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your eternal guiding light, and your Savior today. I know I may never meet you here on earth as we are roaming, but if you truly prayed your prayer, to Jesus requesting forgiveness of your sins, and asking for your salvation you are right now this second saved. And I will see you when we go Away back home!
