My Inspiration: The Creator

Sometimes I go outside, and stand in my yard, and look around me and say to myself, "How can I stand how good God is to me??" When I drive down the road, and see a hawk cross the highway, or if I take a walk with my honey and see three different kinds of fern along the side of the path, when I sit by the lake and look up just in time tosee the bass jump out of the water to grab that wonderful dragon fly! Have you ever gone scuba diving? I've been blessed severaltimes to scuba in the Caribbean. Oh! My! Golly! The sea turtles! The parrot fish! The sting rays!

What a privilege it is to live in this world and be able to share it, and sense it and love it! I mean, I live in New Jersey and Ishare my homestead with Beavers! Foxes! Deer! Red Headed Woodpeckers! Coyotes! Skunks! Great Blue Herons! Screech Owls! Snapping Turtles! Great Horned Owls! Box Turtles! Painted Turtles! Buzzards! Luna Moths! Wood Ducks! All on 16 acres. That is a miracle!

My Creator continually shows me things that totally amaze me. That's why I say, "Life is just so full of cool stuff!" Thank you, God!

My nane is Judy and I've been a christian for more than 3/4 of my life. I believe in redemption through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, that God, the Spirit lives in me and gives me the power to do His will and to live a joyful life. I have a Godly husband, a grown son and daughter. I live on a farm with 3 goats, 2 chickens, 2 horses, a cat, a dog and a python. I am an artist and a singer. I was a full time stay at home mom, the hardest job you'll ever love! I have two handmade shops on Etsy. Leaning on the Promises (Hand Painted Walking Canes) and Beaver Creek Pottery and an Etsy shop for selling Vintage and Antiques. Jersey Pine Pickers I post about my relationship with God, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, about the things He teaches me, delights me with and how He uses me.
