Personal Quote: Before the mountains were brought forth, I AM...
it's always interesting to see the range of responses to different deviations.  how several people can always find something different in the same image is such an amazing thing.  some of my submissions that i consider relatively unassuming can garner the most overwhelming responses, while others that might hold high personal value for me can go almost unobserved.  i suppose there's a lesson there somewhere; something like "the first shall be last, and the last shall be first."  like how the most remarkable object in all history - the sovereign creator of the universe in human form - was to be found in a dirty barn on the outskirts of an unimportant town.

God has always taken pleasure in making the smallest, the weakest and and most unlikely the instruments of accomplishment.  and when you think about it, what better proof of divine power than to take the unusable and accomplish the impossible?

Hey, How have you been lately?

Listen I’m trying to raise some awareness, so if you
can, take a peek at my latest journal entries.


GOD bless you now and always.

Are you gonna start coming around this place more often? ;)
outwardlyupward Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2011
well... apparently not! :)

truly, i'm not around the scene much anymore -- pulling up da these days is almost an accident, and depending on which compy i'm at it could be one of a couple user accounts, so i don't always catch everything (quickly, anyway).

i still chew on the occasional idea, and i still check out my watches, but honestly after dealing with computers all day the inspiration dies. maybe one day the worm will turn again...

Your gallery is awesome. I always find it encouraging to find somebody else at dA who has no fear of letting everyone know that they're a Christian. God bless you, my friend! :hug:
