Dr. Stanko: This is great wisdom and you are a great encourager. I want to thank you for the influence you have had in my life. In 1997, after retiring from a 30 year career as art teacher and after returning from our first mission trip, my wife and I attended a missions conference at Joseph Garlington's church in Wilkinsburg where I was blessed by your teaching. I bought a video of it which was a great encouragement and guide as I wrestled with resuming an art career I had surrendered some 20 years earlier. God spoke to me through you and He has been blessing and using my fine art career. Currently one of my pieces is on display at the Westmoreland Museum of American Art in their Juried Biennial show. If interested, you can see some of my work at www.jimickart.com Thanks again and God bless you. Dan Jimick


FINE!!! I hear you Lord! No more excuses! This is a very hard thing to swallow, along with the Paying attention article. I few minutes ago I was re-working my CV for the 137th time to apply for jobs again because I felt to go into what I think I know in my heart to go into full time - Writing - will never succeed. I came upstairs to get info on PC to include on CV. A friend who subscribes to this blog had send me these articles and I read them, along with an email I never open from a business directly (I get these everyday but never open them) but just now I did and it was talking about being creative. Although it had hint of new age, it was very good and wondered as I read if it was comfirming what I sensed as I worked on my CV before I came to the PC, but ignored, that I should not be doing what I am doing applyign for jobs where I am going to be miserable but okay financially, and loosing focus of where I believe God is leading me to - all because of fear of failure and comparison and yep, perfectionism too. So when I read this article as a third one in the last ten minutes, I knew God was talking to me and I need to continue writing like He has asked me to. Thank you for the challenge ... I think ...
