Sunday Twist of Terra Cotta Pots

Ya know, I was glad today was Sunday. Why? Because I got to go go back to the House of the Lord. I needed a Word from Pastor Rickie Rush of the Inspiring Body of Christ Church. Yes, I needed to know how good wants me to have my desires of the heart. I want people to look at me and see His light. Yes, all of that. However, as Pastor Rush says, we may not have that pain tolerance level to handle what He's got for us. Any other time I would think, "Well, yes I do!" *****
Alas, I think of the painted and decoupage terra cotta pot I showed my friend yesterday. I wanted Her opinion. I do believe she was being kind.****Blessing ain't hit my painted and decoupage terra cotta pot scene yet.****Nope. My pot was UGLY. I'm not saying that to get attention. Nope. It was UGLY. I'd just spot you the "GLY" and my goodness. My vision for the pots, hasn't quite made it to "what is" yet. The focus of the pot, was overshadowed by the accessories (aka tissue paper) I plastered on the pot. Oh my goodness. I'm amazed how Mod Podge transforms anything. I do admit I'm having fun messing with it. However, I'm not feelin' that good to share my pot's unattractive to you. Don't want you to turn to stone. ****I want my terra cotta pot to be terrific and pretty and I want to like it before I share it with others. My friend yesterday says, "Be patient. Art is difficult." ****Once again, I remember the C's and D's I mustered to get in junior high art class. I tell you what, once I get these pots ready for human consumption, I'm going to send one to my junior high art teacher. Yep. She found me on Facebook. It will be a surprise to her. Maybe I can redeem myself and maybe get up a "B".

****Pain tolerance level indeed.
