Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

Greetings everyone! I hope you all have had a wonderful Christmas and are having a great new year. Even though I am not into making new years resolutions as such, the new year is a great time to reflect on where you have been and where you are going. It is a time to thank the Lord for past blessings and for challenges as well, as those are sent to increase our dependence upon Him. It is also fine to use the new year as a time to evaluate and set goals, or to change direction if needed. Making a "resolution" involves a promise, a guarantee, which is broken the first time you mess up or deviate from it. I like the idea of setting goals. And as believers in Christ we are told to
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. 6 In all
your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6

and to

"Commit your works to the LORD And your plans will be established" Proverbs 16:3

Therefore, the focus is not on you, but on the Lord.

On that note, one of my goals is to update this blog more often. January and Febuary are typically painfully slow months for party caricature gigs, but I am starting some new pieces to build my portfolio. I'll post progress reports on those as I work on them. Untill next time!!
