“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” ― Eleanor Roosevelt, This is My Story

 Last night when I could not sleep, I was up journaling. I stopped to look something up on the internet and this quote jumped out at me and I wrote it down.  Little did I think a second thought that it would pop up on my search screen this morning when looking for quotes on wisdom. Twice in 12 hours.  At midnight, I was searching for a personal look at how you be bold with God's light and love in your life, and do it with humility.  God did not create us to be fearful or to feel afraid to live our lives.  He created each of us to shine with his light using our gifts.  More on my next journal on this. 

My dad taught me in my teens, the world was simply not about me. The "I" was not important. It hurt my feelings at the time. I was seventeen and in my first semester of college and I had written home about all that was happening.  His correction stayed with me in my conversations with others as well as my writing notes or letters.  Not sure about journals.

This painting was created in May 2010 and appeared in American Art Collector.  It was purchased within days of the magazine's release by a collector in Oklahoma. . Seems to me the dance and interaction between these three horses is amazing. If I had to identify with one of them, I would be in the back.  Where would you be?  I am a strong person, but have never desired the limelight.  As a teacher in my spirit, I am a nurturer and I want to see my students bloom and be happy and satisfied with their journeys.   

 "and he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills—" Exodus 35:31
