Paid in Full (Poem)
Imagine it as if it was happening today
The hour was dawning in which it would be His last day
Jesus, took 3 of His disciples and went out to pray
As the death He'd prophesied was but a short time away
He began to be filled with sorrow and became deeply distressed
"My soul is exceedingly sorrowful even to death.."
So strong was his distress that blood expelled as He sweat
Three times He asked them to stay awake and pray but three times they slept.
"Are you still sleeping and resting? Behold the hour is at hand,
And the Son of Man is being betrayed into sinners' hands.
Rise, let us be going. See My betrayer is at hand"
The betrayer Judas arrives and with a kiss hands over the Son of Man
Through unjust trials He pushed right on through
Never denying who He was as King of the Jews
They mocked and jeered and their blood lust grew
Crucify Him! They shouted, though His innocence was proved
Tortured, humiliated, battered and bruised
He knew the cup He'd drink from was to save me and you

Commandant, we're heading toward something bigger than anything I've seen.

Now, then, er you were telling us about this invincible Alliance of yours?

The past few days I've had the absolute Joy of dealing with a 'Professional' CG artist in a FB Group, who seems to have issues with watermarks on artwork. To 'prove' his point he took my most recent render, posted, to the group and removed the watermark. He then reposted the altered image in the comments under my original post to (in my eyes) boast about doing it. He doesn't think he did anything wrong and took offense that I called him out about it...
This has since degraded into him throwing thinly veiled insults at me. Yeah... real professional.
I do this for fun. If you like what I do that's fine, if you don't that's fine too... Just leave me be.
