One of my favorite words is sojourner. To me it reminds me I have a home, but for now am wandering that which is not mine. I, personally, take great comfort in not being at home here on this earth.
As do I....it's a joy to me that I don't have to get involved in the affairs of this world, but need only have the full armor of God on for the spiritual battles that God assigns to me.

"No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier." 2Tim. 2:4
Agreed with you completely regarding this. My hubby says: For the Christian: This earth is the closest we will ever get to hell. But, for the non-Christian, this earth is the closest he will ever get to heaven.

I love that saying, LG! I'd never heard but I agree whole-heartedly! Tell Gary I'm stealing that one.... :D

I raise my arms in praise to my Abba, Father God, Jesus Christ Savior, and Holy Spirit, Comforter and guide. One and only God, in 3 persons, eternal, ever loving, full of grace and mercy, yet the God of justice, who will not allow sinful man to mock him. In the end, every knee will bow to Him. What an absolute blessing it is to come on this secular thread, and commune with sisters and brothers.

Creal, my heart cries for the evil that is being done on every continent during this time. Thank you for the reminder that "We the People of the USA" are not the only ones suffering. The atrocities are world wide. We continue to sit in the lap of luxury. But the emotional distress as we see our freedoms stripped away, and as we witness reports of hundreds of thousands of people being harmed by the jab can bring us to a state of deep depression if we don't keep our eyes on our Savior. I find myself wondering how many of my family will survive this holocaust by needle.

MB, thank you for sharing your prayer need. I will pray for you, and for your boss and other co workers. May the Holy Spirit work in her life to convict her of her deep need. Every heart has a hole that only Jesus can fill. May her life struggles bring her to the realization that she CAN'T fill that hole with anything other than Jesus. I want to share one of my past work struggles with you. Many years ago, when my children were young, I worked part time at the hospital. The charge nurse had young children of her own. She was brutal towards me. She knew I was a believer. Not a single shift went by without her attacking me, calling me a weak person, a slacker, and lots of other jabs because I refused to work full time. When I quit that job to go work in the school system so I could be MORE available to my children, she confessed to me, "I've always been envious of you because you have chosen a life style that meets your family's needs." So, I urge you.... continue to live your life for Jesus. In so doing, you are sowing seeds. You may NEVER see the harvest. BUT, know this: your boss is not the only one who is watching your walk.

Grandma, Thank you for sharing that scripture. One of my favorite passages: John 1: 1-12. I love how that passage meshes so very well with the creation account. In these first 3 verses of Genesis, we have the trinity:

1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. (Father God)

2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. (Holy Spirit)

3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. (the Word: Jesus)

The WORD was spoken, and all of creation came into existence.
Thank you. The word of God will never return void, even if we don’t get to see it in this lifetime. I pray that your boss turned her heart to Christ because of you. May she stand behind you in heaven!

Whether she chooses Jesus, or not... I can state that I've sowed the seeds. It's freeing indeed to know that we don't own the outcome. She still crosses my mind, now and then, even though it's been decades. And, when that happens, I know the Holy Spirit is prompting me to pray for her.

Creal, if I was going to do an air brushed design, I would do: either an empty cross, perhaps with a crown of thorns, or an open cave. Could do the same thing, with the light effect. While angels are nice, I think the "angel" message does not tell the "needful" story.
It's version 1, cheap jacket, proof of concept. Yes you can air brush fabric and even over the zipper as long as you protect the steel part of the zipper from paint. Designs/scenes will be all one of a kind.

The next question... Do you think there is a business model for Spiritual themed air bushed outer wear?

Jesus is Lord and Christ 🙏❤️🇺🇸
