One amazing story was of a poem I wrote at retreat called “Pencil-vania.” I didn’t know who it was for, but I felt it was for someone connected to Pennsylvania. I asked the people around me if anyone was from Pennsylvania. No one was, but one woman piped up that her roommate speaks Pennsylvania Dutch. “Is she from Pennsylvania?” I asked. “No, but she used to be Amish,” the woman answered. “What?! That’s amazing!” I laughed – because the poem was about God bringing someone from a place of black and white and grey to a place of color – from pencil to colors! hahaha! This woman left a world where people wore a lot of black and white and thought in a lot of black and white! Suddenly, she saw her roommate and called her over. The woman read the poem and was really astounded by the accuracy of the poem and very encouraged by the reminder of what God is doing in her life right now. It was a beautiful moment. And that is the kind of artistic encouragement I love sharing with people through poems. It’s really fun and powerful.

I relish being part of illuminating the real identity of people and places. I have had really encouraging feedback from those I’ve written poems for and I’m delighted to see more people know more clearly who they are and to be cheered into greatness by Holy-Spirit-kissed poetry! Wonderful! haha!

I’m selling my photographs online! yippee!

Yesterday I was going through thousands of photos I’ve taken and I was compelled to listen to Arabic worship music. That’s just how wonderfully nostalgic these windows into memories make me. It’s really quite lovely. I do hope it pulls others in between the sandwich of God’s eyelashes, to see the Middle East through His eyes.

Furthermore, my summer is, at this point, devoted to writing a book about Bethlehem (more on that in a future post). And thus, selling photos is an income source for me. So, THANK YOU for sowing into my life. And THANK YOU for loving people all over the world by placing their faces and places in your home.

31 photos are up now, more to come. Bon apetit to your eyes.
