So far I seem to be failing miserably at posting regurlarly and thereby communicating like i planned, even if to myself. Also, i had said that i would communicate in pictures and here i am using words. (chris throws up his hands, "whats wrong with me?" he says.)

I have found myself enduring a tough year that has been hard to explain on many levels and in that have learned of Grace and direction but still often find myself asking for those things still. I cant say that the hardness of the year has ended but I am looking at what gifts and oppurtunites are here now and looking forward to what oppurtunities come with each new day or decision.

drawing is one of those gifts and I do mean gifts as in from GOD so praise Him. I hope to be doing more drawing with purpose. there are things that i have been able to work on and with His grace and me not being a lazy punk (im learning about that too) i pray they get done and find an audience and do something good...

for now here is a sketch of 3 boys I have had the pleasure of knowing since 1998, though they have changed since then. from the left: Sacremento Salinas, Cj Robinson and 'Danruff' Phelps. hopefully you will see more of them ...if you know the song he's whistling, then we can be friends......

Toy Story 3

haha. the coloring might be off here on my face....oh well..

I dont really know what to put here except to say that i saw Toy Story 3 and it was everything I wanted Toy Story 3 to be. There were great laughs and great moments of drama and fear, all from animated characters who you CARE for. I am convinced that there is more drama and emotion for adults and teens in this film than for children and I hope it gets nominated for an academy award for best picture and continues Pixar's tradition of presenting animation as much more than a way to make kid's movies. Toy story 3, the entire Toy story series is essential viewing, period.

Also, I want to add, that as a Christian, there were great little moments that spoke to me, reminding me that I should trust God no matter if he has me "in college or in the attic". also, that He truly "will never give up on you" and that I belong to Him. things i really need to hear right now.

The whole reality of life changing: friends going away, locations changing and feeling uncertain where you will end up is very real to me and I think that it one of the aspects that I related to most from the film. life is hard.

it was a great film and there was a great after film conversation with my friend luis that topped it off.

to quote Andy in the film, "Thanks guys....."

thats a pencil in the cartoon version of me's mouth by the way - it doesnt look like one to me..

i want to try and post here because I cant seem to express myself well on those little facebook blurbs. also, the wall overwhelms me. maybe man just wansn't meant to know what his acquaintances are doing every minute of the day.

Im thinking maybe God has me to express myself in drawings and pictures instead of words. If i had a therapist I think he would tell me that I need an outlet so Ill pretend like I do and try this.

i love Jesus and even better and more reliable still, HE LOVES ME. He says and does great things that i tend to forget or look past so I hope to express those things.

i love to draw and it has been too long since I have found myslef consistent in my gift. i get many funny ( sometimes maybe funny only to me) ideas in my head and I end up saying them to myself and i dont want to keep indulging in that habit. Plus I want to see my gift used for good, that good being the Glory of God and the edification of people. Also, it should be to make others laugh and be informed and not just to make myself look cool, more on that later.

today I saw a great movie and had a great comfort from God. (more on those later too) i hope a communication and an outlet can begin... maybe even a community of posters.....

then maybe I wont have to go ahead and see that therapist after all....

God truly bless....
