I am going to leave this artwork extra big because you have to look for something hidden in the heart. This is a very special God moment, God planned story. Prepare to get chills, because when we built this house in the subdivision, God was there.
I created this piece for one of my super clients, Amy, who is becoming a good friend. She has adopted 5 kids and this was to celebrate them, and she wanted to give this piece to another friend, Holly, who is also adopting. Amy originally planned to give it to Holly later, but decided to give her the print a couple weeks ago over breakfast –coincidentally the same day I was having lunch with Amy and our mutual friend Kerri.
Amy gives Holly the piece and she loves it, (of course). But Holly is especially touched that I included her last name in the artwork. Amy was confused…I didn’t write McDermott anywhere, she hadn’t even told me the names. But what God knew, and what Holly noticed, is that the name of the book’s character is, you guessed it. McDermott. Can you find it? It is everywhere.
The book that I randomly picked up at a garage sale, the pages I randomly ripped up, the pieces I randomly glued and did or did not overlap, all were not so random. That is way too much to be a coincidence. This is a God moment, God wink. God Plan. God is good. All the time. Moment. He was with me, so He could be right up close and send a super cool message to Holly that HE is there.
Of course I was floored when Amy shared this story with me. I got all teary eyed. And I knew. God is using me. He is using me to build a subdivision. This custom home was a model home kind of awesomeness, welcome to the neighborhood, super discount (can’t beat free love and grace), all the bells and whistles and upgrades kind of house.
I think I will keep painting. I think God has a purpose for me and this art, what do you think? Who knows we might have to annex some surrounding towns. 🙂
So how about you? Has my art prompted any God moments for you? Please share them with me, and our little community here!
