Humility and the artist

Many years ago I had a commission to do a silk pillow with soft pastel colors covering the whole pillow with soft textured pink, yellow, light blue and  light purple stitches.
After working on this piece a few weeks it was finished.  I was thinking to myself it came out pretty good!
It was the end of the day and the sun was just beginning to set for the day. 

So I packaged it up really nice for my client and went out side to get the mail, and the whole sky was filled with soft little colorful clouds of pink, yellow, light blue orange, magenta and purples almost like these tiny stitches. From one end of the sky to the other.

Blown away by the display I thought to myself even our greatest achievements in life is nothing compared to the glory of God to come.

That was many years ago and I will always remember that pillow filled sky, it is a sweet reminder that God is interested in all that we do on earth and that he is with the artist and the craftsman.

A lesson in humility by a wonderful and glorious God.
