I went to a yard sale this morning where an artist was selling some of his pottery and after viewing his work I thought to myself ,"I should'a been an artist". Then he said that he and his partner had too much stuff to get rid of. I said , "yeah, it's the American way" and then I thanked him for letting me look at his things.
(There's no point in arguing anymore. I try to share the love of Christ that's my only goal now. This battle has been lost.)
Then at the next sale I came across another artist ( I should'a been an artist) where an old woman was selling a terrible painting that had been torn away from it's frame ,yet the poor dear who painted it refused to sell the frame separately. I told her that I understood and that I was fine with that. Then she said that I would have to buy the painting with the frame and that she would need $150.00 dollars for it because she's in an "art club" and that's how much "art club" paintings go for. (I should'a been an "art club" member) I patted her shoulder and thanked her for letting me look around at her things and then I told her that I didn't have that much cash with me (never do) and that I would have to practice some self control and let the painting go even though at times I struggle with self control and as I walked to my car I though to myself. I also live in a pretend world that's odd and outta touch with reality. Thank's be to God.
