Co-Creating by Akiane child artist
This is a favorite painting of mine that Akiane painted. I read an interview with her several years ago. I had not honored my gift of the ablility to paint. But when I read her words and saw the value that She and God put on the gift of artistic Talent I realized that I was blessed and needed to take my gift seriously too. I had the opportunity to meet her and tell her how much she blessed me.
I feel that one has to honor ones gift, no matter where it comes from.
A lot of our feeling about where that gift comes from is based in our nurture and upbringing...we can only relate to what we have been taught.
A wonderful and brave subject Deirdra.....it is always good to open a dialog...not everyone will agree :)
Thank you for this special post and dvd. One can find God with eyes wide open and ears that will listen...need no projection in "uglyness" and commonness.
And Deidra, you are special too, because to packed several great toppics in these posts, that made me respond. And that, my friend, while dancers, like I was, have less words and don't speak easily. Blogging is a fine and artfull medium I have come to think should one spent some time of quality together.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
I have to share this with my friends!
What a precious gift, not just her talent, but her faith and obedience in using it. I am primarily a writer, and have struggled my whole life with giving that ability over to God. This is so inspiring and convicting. Thank you.
