My Journey

I am thankful....
I have seen pain come into my life, cause hurt and destruction… and sometimes I have wondered “where were you God”  I have asked question in the mist of my afflictions, looking for answers without a response…and I even doubted God’s mercy for  an instant…
But then I learned that in life everything comes to us for a purpose and I also learned that everything comes together for the best… and that the last will be much better that the first…is part of his purpose and everything will be fine… my God has always been with me, His world has not failed me..My trust rest solemnly on him… God has blessed me beyond compare, he has surrounded me with wonderful people… and with love that is hard to even describe with words… and for that I am thankful...
Seven keys of imagination…
Here I am again writing my heart out, for all to see… my journey lately has been anything but smooth, it has actually been a very bumpy ride with dead ends and countless illegal u-turns, but I have survived! The skyscraper competition is going quiet well, but we are approaching the end “there is tiny light at the end of the tunnel, it is rapidly becoming bigger and brighter as we ramble to it”. I feel as if  I am trying to fit an elephant into a tutu, this task is anything but simple… yet I know that I was born for such a time as this!  I often pray for divine wisdom to find the answers that I am seeking and for strength to endure them.  Sometimes I don’t feel like praying at all!! But I know that God is still listening to my heart, because he said “before you call, I will answer you.  While you still speak I will hear, my ears are turn to the cry of my chosen ones”.  When I see the consuming fire of a kiln burning fiercely the impurities of the clay, so heartless that the dark color of the clay fades into the flames and the vessel turns a clear white, "pure as a new born baby".  When I’m in the presence of this miracle surrounded by the inverosimil of my frustrations, , I am brought to tears.  Do you see the paradox?  Is it just me or is it getting hot in here?  Knowing that life is but a breath, that the sun comes out after the rain and that in our imagination where everything is possible, allowable and legal, elephants wear tutus!  In the world of Jasmine Collins there are seven keys that open millions of doors, I call them my seven keys of imagination… they are: Reading, Writing, Drawing, Sculpting, Dancing, Singing and Creating… these seven keys are normal things that children do every day and oftentimes all day, but we adults often forget to use… these little things are the salt in the fire that will bring up in us the most beautiful shining colors, after the fire has seized…
