Picture Tubes: Angels

Figurines and my own

Thought for today:
Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it. ~ Hebrews 13:2

My collection of angels were quite challenging. Most of them I gathered from the cemetery. Hey, beggars can’t be choosers when it comes to using free images. Besides, I like a challenge and I love re-creating sculptures. If you are familiar with creating your own picture tubes, then you know the process of erasing the background and cleaning up the rough edges that the eraser tool leaves behind. I do that by using the soften tool. Then comes my favorite part: adding color and texture. Like I said, these angels were challenging. The angel on the swing (027) got deleted six times before I was finally satisfied with her!

So, I'm sitting here trying to figure out how to describe myself to you, and these are the words jumping up and down in my heart: I'm just a simple human being living in a complicated, messed-up world. I speak my mind. I love hard. My feelings run deep. When push comes to shove, I stand my ground. Sometimes I push back. Sometimes I walk away. I've surfed the crashing waves of life that threatened to destroy me only to make me stronger. I bear the scars of emotional rape, sadness, and depression. I've walked the golden streets of churches and religion only to be disappointed time and time again. And as a result, it's taken me seventy-five years to get where I'm sitting today; a sinner saved by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ. I fell at the cross. I repented of my sins, and Jesus saved and washed me clean. I still fall flat on my face. I still get dirty as a pig in a mudhole. And Jesus still picks me up, dries my tears, forgives me again and again, and continues walking close beside me. No one has ever loved me like that. And no one ever will.
