{Pearly Gates....?}

Please forgive me, I am a graphic artist/web designer and think visually. To add to this mix, I have a very logical/intellectual thinking side to go with it. I am very down the middle in right and left brain workings which can be quite entertaining to people, I am certain. Top that with a dry wit and funky sense of humor and well, this made me smile and think..., what if? Forgive me, but I laughed out-loud and was quite tickled with this thought.  It came to mind when I saw this picture. I thought in the past of people talking about their ideas to entering into the pearly gates. I am certain anyone that loves God and desires heaven, well, has their own version of what heaven looks like. In running across this image it made me wonder if this above is what God sees from the opposite view! OH MY! Just a "What If?" for your day to strike your thoughts and smile. I have to believe if this is his view, he smiles as he thinks..."Here come my sweet, lost, ruffled up and matted babies with some of you wee ones a little more matted up than others. I love it that they are hearkened to my whisper to draw near to me and I can't wait to see them too.". He then smiles smiles big, leans down and gathers us up and holds us close.

Just something to think about.

I'd rather think in terms of being his child or a princess in his courts, a woman of integrity that sought wisdom and courage. A woman of big faith who made wise choices in life, loved his people with great and gentle smiles and followed his whisper and hear, "Well done my good and faithful servant.". We are written in the good word as if lost sheep in the bible...., I am just sayin. :) Either way, I pray at the end of my days I am welcomed by him and his placing me on this earth in the first place will be worth his effort. One can pray!

There is sunshine out my office window!!!!!!! I am loving this.

I hope your day is filled with sunshine and smiles too!

Thanks for your nice comment!!!
I shall try to at least put some writing in english on my blog, for you! :-)
The pictures today shows bits from my kitchen, and the feet belongs to my 4-year old daughter.
My photographs of my kitchen has just been in a seven-page spread in the Norwegian interior magazine; Vakre Hjem & Interior. So today I was just listing where I have bought the different items in the kitchen.

You are showing a great photo! Love it. Beeing a graphic designer myself, I can relate to your story.

Ha a great and wonderful day! :-)

You are sooo clever. Just adorable. My brother is a graphic artist as well. He designs a lot of the labels, etc. for Jones soda. tomorrow night we will be headed to an art show he's having. His work is a little different; edgy. diekotomy.com
