Illustrated Inspiration

Mercy Me, Rain

If you ask me what my FAVORITE thing to do is...
I will tell you that I love listening to my music and creating for my Creator.
This is how i imagine Heaven. 
I see it as a place where we listen to the angels sing and work with a joyful heart for our Father.
Only in Heaven I will have a wider variety of colors on my palette. 
I could sit for an eternity outside in pretty weather, listening to J.J. Heller, Mercy Me, or Kari Jobe. 
Music drives me to inspiration. I linger on the words and let them settle into my spirit, then they leak through my fingers to my pencils and onto paper.

My wonderful Hubby, Shannon Seaton, passed away 4 months ago.
I have been going through stages of emotions like a roller coaster.
This past week has been the worst! I just feel so alone and useless and as though I have nothing to look forward to. Everyone keeps telling me, "Live in the Moment!", but my moment is lonely. So, that makes me lonelier. I work all day doing art with middle schoolers, come home to my two wonderful but needy little girls, looking forward to night time alone after I struggle to get them to bed... then sit in bed wishing I had a companion to talk to. 
I have noticed if I am just sitting around idle worrying about my future and what I cannot control, 
I fall in a deep pit of selfishness, insecurity, and fear. 
God is lovingly keeping me in suspense of what my future holds, but I know it is going to be good. 
I just have to wait on His perfect timing for my dreams. 
But I can't stand sitting still! I need to move! 

So, a great friend noticed me in a pit and told me that i really need to find something positive to do. 
I told her about all of these cool inspirational posters on Pinterest that I look at to cheer up.

One of them said, 
"Life is like riding a Bicycle. In order to keep your balance you must keep moving"

It's contagious!
This was created by Jessica from Volume Twenty Five, 
it is exactly what I needed!
I need to move! Or else I will fall because of lack of balance. 
Just cause I am waiting on Him doesn't mean I have to 
SO, i listen to my music, record the words that speak to me and create! 
Here it is...
What I do while I wait.

Illustrated Bible Verses

Maisy, my 6 year old daughter's illustration

My Illustration and Interpretation of 
Exodus 14:14
My Illustration of 1 Thessalonians 5:15

"A Happy Heart makes the Face Cheerful".
Proverbs 15:13

Just a thought about how Fatih is believeing in what we cannot see,
and that Faith the size of a tiny mustard seed can move mountains.
We look to what our eyes see and believe, but it is really what our heart sees that lasts.
For it is what we cannot see that will be eternal!
Wind moves the Mill...
