The Season of Lent... of Gratitude, Giving back and Growing closer to God

Hi Friends!  Okay, so I have been a little neglectful of My Third Act lately... have you missed me?  I've been putting a little more time and energy into my art blog.   I've always concentrated on pen and ink home sketches, but lately, I've been intrigued by watercolor and have been antsy to try and capture some special places. 

The season of Lent is a time of reflection,...for Gratitude, Giving Back and Growing closer to God... the three things that are my primary focus for this blog.  So, I thought I'd share with you a sneak peak of my next post. My second in a series of who-knows-how-many, continuing through Easter Sunday. 
I hope you'll join me there...  


Luke 5:11

Then Jesus said to Simon, "Don't be afraid; from now on you will fish for people." So they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything and followed him. 

I recently read "Twelve Ordinary Men" by John MacArthur.  It's a great book about the call and ministry of Jesus' apostles.  Twelve regular guys, people like you and me, from various walks of life, chosen to carry on the name of Jesus Christ.  Not the richest or smartest men in their community, and not the ones with celebrity status or best known.... just twelve guys who believed in Christ and were willing to walk away from their livelihoods, and their families to be His hands and His feet going forward.  
So I must ask myself... I'm just an average person, leading a pretty ordinary life...what can I do to advance His Kingdom?
