A Weary Illusion

water color by Candace Huffmaster

The past is a weary illusion
The future is a colorful delusion
And each second passes as mysteriously as the wind.

It is dark until light
Things are calm till there’s chaos
And running from life’s storms is quiet vain.

When we stand, we still move
When we lie down, there’s no rest
Even in sleep we exhaust our own thoughts.

If we did not make our self
And we cannot withhold death
How in this world can we ever escape fear?

There is peace, this I know
And I am not afraid to have hope
Nor to believe there is something more to life.

For if now is all I am
Then my life is nearing end
And there is little in the now that can uphold more.

But if yesterday’s still alive
And tomorrow already formed
Then these moments will continue on and so will I.

Though I age, I've always been
Though I die, I still remain
It is then that I will see and fully comprehend.

For if I knew now what was to be
Why in the world would I have peace
For my soul would want to obtain the finer form.

So for now I’ll enjoy my life
And I will live to fulfill my time
And in time, my time will merge with all history.

But then once your days complete
You too will pass through space
And emerge as the highest creature you’re designed to be

So believe beyond this day
Care about the things that you don’t see
And believe in Providence ~ the Sovereign Deity.

Near and Dear

So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord--who is the Spirit--makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.
NLT 2 Corinthians 3:18

Through the eyes of my window
The magnificent view I see
All life through my Savior
It now about Him, not me
He's gracious each morning
His mercy I hold dear
My lips praise Him joyously
No matter what the day brings
See what He tells you....
His deep secrets are truth...
With no veil before us
Thou vast lands sprawl before us
With rugged terrain and debris
Do not fear the heights of mountains
Clearly see the steps and proceed
To Him these are not obstacles
His hand firmly planted the seeds
His breath can blow objects over
His tears can flood all things
They wash away all matter
And his anger can burn nations down
His life will raise what's glorious
And then all things will bow down
I know I'm small and insignificant
But in His eyes I'm near and dear
My God, How I really adore you
I'm so proud to be called your own
Though some cannot seem to find you
and others can't hear what I do
I know that you're real and present
For your hand alone changed my form
That is my proof and your burden....
What then is left for me to defend?
For you alone are MY defender
And I'm proud to call Jesus my own
~ Candace Huffmaster

Think on these things ladies (and men ;) and we will be digging through God's word to see what HE sees.

Till we meet again ~

Auld Lange Syne by Robert Burns

Auld Lange Syne

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to min’?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days o’ lang syne?
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!

We twa hae run about the braes,
And pu’t the gowans fine;
But we’ve wander’d mony a weary foot,
Sin’ auld lang syne.

We twa hae paidl’t i’ the burn,
Frae mornin’ sun till dine:
But seas between us braid hae roar’d,
Sin’ auld lang syne.

And here’s a hand, my trusty fiere,
And gie’s a hand o’ thine;
And we’ll take a right guid willie-waught,
For auld lang syne.

And surely ye’ll be your pint-stowp,
And surely I’ll be mine;
And we’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!

This is What I See

Art is an experience
That's yet to be seen
A creation within a creator
.....the emotions holding on
The sounds....the smells.....
How it will feel................

The mind may experience……
But the physical still longs
To merge with the spirit
To fill out its flesh
To escape the thought of creation
To embrace its Zoe life
To breathe among the living
To exhale and bring delight

 A real life…not a memory
Now others eyes may see
The God who is the image
And we, His vision in 3D

 Create ….you’re not an image
Join the pixels, give them shape
Shine the lights upon them
Give them music, let them form
See the body moving.....
Smell the fragrance...Hear the praise
All for the Love of our Father
Who created so much to give

No artist has my fullness
You each have…..must give away
In freedom to what is lacking
That’s where what I see is made
There is liberty where I am standing
Come outside …see something great!
Too large for walls to contain me
Too magnificent for one man’ praise
Too much for one person to accomplish
Too wonderful for any man to miss

That’s what I see… your eyes perceive?

The Houses We Build

We were speaking in group today about our moments and how they are fleeting.  We know that reality is a split second and we discussed the things we build.  Lastly we spoke of the house with many rooms which God has built for us.  I will be sending the overview of group in a bit, but I promised each of you I would send this  - and I am faithful to my word as far as it depends on me ;)

My love to each of you - when you have done all to stand....stand, give God something to find when He shows up to bring His best to you.

If it is My word, it will be through all known time
No doubt shall change what is; what is known is what shall be
Faith is found by understanding; knowledge comes and will pass away
Those who are My children, stand sure on My firm ground

Reality's within this moment; not the moments fading away
All yesterdays built tomorrow; the today which fades away
What man perceives My reality, even claims to understand
Within minds which I created, given limits of what I Am
Wisdom is not among those, who lavish on themselves
Who squander and belittle the majesty of My will
In My mind all things are possible, through Me all things complete
By this all things are accomplished; unto them all things will be

Oil Painting
Candace Huffmaster

Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who acts on behalf of those who wait for him. Isaiah 64:4

Some days seem long. Even longer are the days we are waiting for things to change. During such times God’s faithfulness has always encouraged me.  As I would sit with Him, read, relate and pray, He would give me strength.  Time and again, He walked me through circumstances proving that I did not need to pray for things or people to be different to be at peace. His largest concern was that I accept his gifts and believe I needed Him more than anything I could hear, see, touch or smell, in order to could keep my peace.

Without some of those, seemingly, immovable obstacles I would not have experienced the depths of His faithfulness.  Without those deep experiences, I would not have had the stamina to rise above the challenges.  Through these challenges my eyesight expanded, and I received insight.  As my vision corrected my perceptions of situations and people were no longer distorted by fear, but perfected in love. 

I’m sure there are obstacles down my road.  But, in Him I trust I will see these object as they are, opportunities: to see better, view greater expanses and envision new things which alone would be beyond my comprehension.

Opportunity is God's Divine Design

Watercolor Title: Opportunity
By: Candace Huffmaster

Hebrews 11: 14, 15    Those who say such things make it clear that they are looking for their own country.  If they had been thinking about the country that they had left, they could have found a way to go back.
God created all things: He perceived, He conceived and believed; He establishes their goodness and set them in place.  He opened up all time with opportunities and allows us to choose which we’ll take. 
In the beginning, God set Adam in place giving him the opportunity to live or die.  We are told to choose who we will follow and He lovingly asks us to choose to live.  Only man is involved with taking hold of these opportunities.  Man then chooses a spiritual ally to propel it into reality; either spirit is willing to receive this opportunity in order that it may live in the space of your moments.  Which will you merge with?
Think about this: Sin is crouching, we are told, waiting to seize the opportunity to live in us.  When we live in sin, it is no longer God’s divine design living but Satan’s distortion in its place.  When we die with Christ to sin, the Holy Spirit is resurrecting God divine designs for our life.
Today, in each moment, I pray that we seize His opportunities and merge with the power of His truth.  Plant His eternal words within and around us, not letting evil conquer us, but conquering evil with His Goodness!
