Okay....so I have been trying to get over the "passing" of my poor little white, Albino hamster "Socrates" when something AMAZING happened the day after he died. I was searching the web for videos about "animals going to Heaven" and found a very good one to watch. It indeed gave me hope that my hamster "Socrates" was in Heaven! BUT........THE STORY DOES NOT END THERE! After I watched the video about "animals going to Heaven" I went to pick my mother up from the hospital. I turned on the CAR RADIO and the STEREO, which had not been working for MONTHS, started to work and the first song that played was "HEAVEN" sung by Bryon Adams! I really, truely believe that this was a DIVINE SIGN from God and my hamster Socrates that he was alright and in Heaven!
Busy day yesterday and very tired day of rest today. Went to the mall and Movies yesterday! Saw "Les Miserables" and then looked through the clothes racks at the mall! Very tired today from all of that! Staying up tonight to work on art & read my new book! Our "handyman" came to do work at our house and thought my oil paintings in my studio were fantastic! Love the compliments! Working to create new work while working on the older, larger oil paintings as well. Hope to post some new pics soon!
A VERY STRANGE SERIES OF EVENTS (SPIRITUAL) TAKING PLACE TODAY! First off, I planned to drive into New Brunswick today. Before I left, I was gathering some spare change for the parking meters. I was trying to grab some quarters and unexpectantly grabbed a gold-toned coin with an "ANGEL" on it instead! Okay, very strange considering I had recently had a dream about an "ANGEL" that inspired one of my art drawings! Well, it does not stop there! After I was finished doing what I had to do in New Brunswick, I went down the road and was ready to turn off. Suddenly I saw right smack in front of me, a bookstore! Well, I had wanted to get a particular "ART" book about "DIVINELY INSPIRED ART", but was not able to find a store around where I lived that had it and did not know that there was a bookstore at this location! I also happened to have a gift card that I had been carrying around for about six years that I had not used and thought it was useless! I not only managed to get the book, but got it for free with the gift card! Also, strangely enough, there was a PARTICULAR BOOK that was in a movie about ANGELS on display out in the open in front of me! I truely believe that the "ANGEL COIN", "DRIVING UNEXPECTANTLY TO A BOOKSTORE", "THE ART BOOK THAT I BOUGHT", "THE BOOK FROM A MOVIE ABOUT ANGELS", AND "THE RECENT DREAM I HAD ABOUT AN ANGEL THAT INSPIRED ONE OF MY DRAWINGS", were all a related series of events divinely inspired in the direction of my art!
HAPPY NEW YEARS DAY TO EVERYBODY!!!! I will be going out with relatives for a New Years Day Dinner tonight! They are having a bunch of "TV MARATHONS" on TV that I love! "Twighlight Zone", "The Honeymooners", "The Odd Couple"....MY FAVORITES!!! I will be watching them today and after dinner tonight! Yesterday I set up my LARGE frames and canvases for paintings that I am working on. In addition, I will also start some smaller oil paintings that will be done much quicker that I can post on my Website more frequently! I have tons of ideas of beautiful art to create! I will enjoy using my new easel for the smaller paintings, although the easel I have can hold canvases up to about 63" I think. I am very excited about my art in the coming year!
