The Holy Spirit inspired me to begin sketching an American Indian woman sitting on top of a mountain, witnessing and pondering the rising of the sun, as the moon prepared for its departure to make way for a new day. As I picked up a paintbrush for the first time, I felt God's hand guiding me...reassuring me....creating with me and through me. After I had completed the painting, the instructor finally made her way over to me and declared, " You never needed my help at all...you already know how to paint!" I laughed to myself. I knew that it was the hand of God that taught me to paint that day. He did not give me a "perfect" gift, however. For if He always gave us our gifts fully perfected, we would have no reason to practice, to cultivate, and to master our talents and abilities. What He did give me was a perfect annointing, and a perfect seed bursting with potential and promise, just as many of you have been given. By the time I had walked out to the parking lot with my newly created oil painting, I realized that my life had changed. By His love and grace, my Heavenly Father had given me a perfect BEGINNING, from which MyJunkyTrunk would be born. For years this painting had been untitled...but in January of 2010, the Holy Spirit impressed upon me to entitle it, "Beginning". Quite naturally, I think that suits it perfectly!!!
