I know I have started at least eight times to write down what I want to accomplish with my artwork. Every time I thought I was on the right track, I would write something, rewrite it at least four times, and then discard it. So here I am again, and I think I’m at last headed in the direction He has chosen for me.
I’ve mentioned to several of my friends and family that Christianity, our way of life, is constantly being attacked from all sides and I'm tired of it. Our faith is taking a hit and in my opinion we aren’t doing much about it. Consequently, I decided to do something very simple to remind us to stand up to these non-believers and if nothing else, make them understand . . . we’re not going away.
A quick story: About a lifetime ago I was a young man risking everything to build my own private little empire. I took ridiculous risks, went way out on a limb and eventually lost money, friends, reputation, my name, and eventually my marriage. I was too busy to notice what was happening to me, and now I know God was trying to speak to me but again I was too caught up in myself to listen. Anyway, all I had left was a large government calendar, a red and blue pencil, and a ball point pen. With those three items, God saved my life, gave me a new direction, and here I am now trying to use what He gave me to help spread the word about His incredible love for us all.
So, here’s what I want to do and if you like the idea, please join us and tell your friends and family: I can print a minimum of 100 11”x17” posters using my designs for $295 which includes shipping and handling by the printer. The funds will come from individuals and businesses who share my goal of handing out free posters to youth groups, church groups, home-schooled kids, any organization which is helping bring kids to Christ.
The donor of the funds can name the organization or church or leave it up to us to make sure it goes to the right places. All I want to do is take a bright, colorful, positive poster and give it to some young person to help them remember to stand up and be counted as we strive to save our faith from those who would love to make Jesus Christ go away.
All I want you to know is that I am dedicating what time I have left on God’s little orb to make sure His Son’s life will forever be remembered.
May God be with you and yours, and please tell a friend.
