We are all pieces of light, broken into a thousand colors, more scintillating than a rainbow. We see one another through colored glasses. We hold our hands up to shield our eyes from what is too bright. We make beauty, we bring forth the light that is within us, we shine light into our darkest places and share our pain with others that together we may heal, become one again in the light of the One who made us all, different, unique, special, and treasured. We reach out to know we are not alone, to empathize with those who are suffering, to shine our light in this crazy, lost, angry and hurting world, that others may find their own light, and we may all one-day find our way home together. With love to my fellow artists and watchers, and as always, please enjoy the beautiful music at the end. REVAMP This world needs color   -Debra

The Sky fell yesterday as I was
Picking up the pieces from the Day Before--
("Now did this Cloud come from left of the Sun or Right?
And where does the Sun in Fragments lie?  
Never-mind," said I,
and threw them in my Bucket to sort last night.)
"Hear me, Sisters, Brothers, my pleas do not Scorn--
I wandered for hours Yester-Morn,
Viewing Dreams that had Shattered and fallen a-shred,
Broken Panes for my bloodied feet to tread.
Then boldly, 'I will Set it Right!' cried I,
None of you can or would, thought I."
Day became Eve while I tried to Restore
What was lost the Day Before,
And that was When--
It began to Rain Again.
"O Mercy, God," said i, "Never could I keep
One Crust from You, No Good Thing Save
Which from Your Hand came, nor these!"
And sadly went i abed, only then to weep.
Morning came again, This Morn, and
Here I yet Stand, bucket in Hand,
To ra

Thanks for the words of appreciation!  I've been doing Journal Features since Nov 2014. It's gotten easier since I made a folder to save up ones that go together, sort of like a table for puzzle pieces.  When I get up to 30 or 31 works, I start the feature. I never know what I'll type and I frequently don't know the title or the song I will use in advance. I just let myself be inspired by whatever themes were going on around the world or in my life, and keep it uplifting as much as possible.  This being said, right after the election I posted in my journal the Faith Hill song Cry Just A Little For Me www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcGntd… to express my deep disappointment and pain in how the election turned out.  And while it was truth, and a beautiful song, and some people did share their disappointment and shock with me, ultimately I took it off, so as not to break the chain of artist features, and to not let this account be about me, and politics, but the light that beauty, encouragement, hope, Christ's truth, community, and generosity, bring into the world.  So every journal is basically around these themes, but I try to keep it inclusive, not driving anyone away by being too Christian, just giving testimony in my daily actions.

This reminds me of Galatians 6:2, in bearing with one another's burdens so that we may fulfill the Law of Christ. Good words, my friend.
