It's so nice seeing you post art again. 😊 Also I love your Blue Exorcist art. I just got into the show myself. Rin's my fave.

AHH! HAPPY YOU DO REALLY!
I barely draw rn for myself, it’s the one of the reasons why I’m not active here.
Also Pokemon GO is eating my time a lot, and meeting with all my friends etc…

Thank you!!

Lots of love  💖

“When I was in my senior year of high school I lived away from my family, I couldn’t stand my school life. I used to bottle everything up, never telling others when I’m having a hard time, but this time was different. I called my father crying and complaining, asking him if I had to do this; I told him it was way too hard. I thought my father would just pat me on the back and tell me to try harder.”
“So what did he say instead?”
“He told me if you’d rather not do it then you don’t have to and just come back home. It was so strange to hear him say that; it made me instead want to try harder at school and endure my situation.”

“전 고3때 제가 가족과 떨어져서 학교를 다녔는데 학교 생활을 견디는 게 너무 힘들었어요. 원래 다른 사람들에게 힘들다는 소리는 잘 안 하는 편이었는데, 아빠에게 전화를 해서 왜 이걸 시켰냐고, 너무 너무 힘들다고 울면서 하소연을 했어요. 근데 전 아빠가 잘 해보자고 다독일 줄 알았어요.”
“그러면 뭐라고 하셨나요?”
“오히려 하고 싶지 않으면 안 해도 된다며, 집으로 돌아오라고 하시더라고요. 근데 이상하게 그 말을 들으니까 더 잘 해서 학교에서 버티고 싶더라고요.”

The origins of this character are kind of obscure. Some have interpreted older forms as a person (the ク-esque portion) being held in place (indicated by the third stroke), which gave the meaning “stay in one place,” and consequently “last a long time.”

High Profile Besties Make Film Together

So cool that BFFs Tatiana von Furstenberg (Diane’s daughter) and Francesca Gregorini (Ringo Starr’s stepdaughter) wrote and directed their first film together.  The film, “Tanner Hall,” reflects on their own adolescent experiences in boarding school, and their friendship. I can imagine that such a project would test even the strongest friendship. In this interview they talk about that challenge:

Von Furstenberg: “Francesca and I have very different work styles. She’s very slow and thorough in combing through things, and I tend to just trust my judgment on the first throw up.”

Gregorini: “The editing process is the final word. It’s your last chance to put together your movie. Deciding on takes was grating after a while.”

Q: Do you think you will direct together again?

Gregorini: “I’m the eternal optimist and I want to say yes. However I can guarantee you that we’re both going to do a separate film each after this. We may come on to produce the other person’s film because we’re such an amazing support system for each other.”

Thick and thin.

It's Only Temporary...

Our Troubles (“Light Affliction”) should not diminish our faith or disillusion us. We should realize that there is a purpose in our suffering. Problems and Human Limitations have several benefits:

(1). They remind us of Christ’s suffering for us…

(2). They keep us from pride…

(3). They cause us to look beyond this brief LIFE

(4).They prove our FAITH to others…

(5). They give God the opportunity to demonstrate his POWER.

See your trouble as opportunities! At times life looks “Temporary out of Order”. Don’t be dismay by what (what’s obviously in front of you) you SEE: Be encouraged by what you don’t SEE. Your latter shall be GREATER….this is Temporary!

2 Corinthians 4:18 (New King James Version)

18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

“It’s not always Easy, but we know it’s Necessary”

Until you visit again, be encouraged and blessed!
