***I added the second stage oh my stairway painting to the bottom of this post. I would like to keep this post I wrote this morning up for a few days until I come up with a new name for my blog page. Since I am spending my days mostly painting right now, i will just continue to add the painting in the different stages of completion to this same post, allowing you all a glimpse into a painters soul and the stages of painting. :)***

I added the second stage oh my stairway painting to the bottom of this post.

When first reading this saying in the picture above, it stood out for me. I know it was meant that I not only see these words, but that I should focus on them. It resounded deep with in my soul and spirit. It is exactly the thoughts that have been going on in my mind of late. I know that God is working in my life. This message seems to be something he wants me to remember.

I have been making a lot of changes in my life. Changes that have been good ones, and ones that others have noticed. My paintings have taken a progressive step forward. My home life is becoming more peaceful. I am more self assured and aware in who I am, and what I should be doing. Bad habits are being broken, and purpose is taking place firmly within my soul.

Now with that being said, I think it is time for another change. Right here on my blog.

Long ago I gave myself the name Mysti. I chose the name because I felt I was walking through a mist unsure of where i was going. Things were so unclear to me. There was mystery in the sense I had no clue who I was, or if I would make it to the next day even. I also loved angels. (still do for that matter) The wings were very mystical looking in most of the pictures I saw. I combined Mist with Mystery and Mystical and came up with the name "Mysti".

It is time to change the name of my blog. I no longer feel it fits me. My path now is full of light, and I am sure of where I will end up. I feel a strong sense in who I have become and who I am now.

I would love to see if any of my blogger friends or those who read my blog but do not leave comments might be able to help me come up with a new name for my Blog title? (the ones who read, but do not comment I will chat with them personally, either via im or phone.)

I need my blog to not only reflect my art, but also my spiritual side and the lady I have now become.

I had a few thoughts. I am still gnawing on them. Maybe you all will come up with something perfectly me. :)

Soulful colors?

Spiritual brush strokes?

The Colors of my spirit?

" The Colors of my spirit " I think might be a good choice, but i still would like to see what you all come up with.

Hugs and Blessings

Oh my gosh!!!! I love Spiritual brush strokes... It brings to my minds eye of God sitting at a large palette brushing each day of our lives onto this beautiful white canvas....... Tender brush strokes as He colors in our lives!!!!!!!! You go girl.. I love reading your blog...

I think I like 'Spiritual Brush Strokes' a place of Understanding & Light, or something with the word 'Light' in it, since its a painter term and a term of following Christ.

What a fun thing to do, to change as improvement.:)

Also, the painting is shaping up nicely. I like what you told me, and I can see, the worn path to Heaven from many feet.

I look forward to seeing the rest of it.:)

I love "Spiritual Brush Strokes"!!
it not only speaks of your painting ability..but also of your spiritual walk and growth in your Christian faith...
I also am loving the progression of your painting...
I am proud of the fact that you are now confident enough in your faith to want to change the name of your blog to reflect that faith...
(and I am proud to call you friend)

Here's a new one: Following (or Follower of) the Light.

As a painter term and follower of Christ.

Here's what my dictionary said about 'follow': go or come after (a person or thing proceeding ahead)2. go along (a route, path, etc) ...4. take as a guide or leader.

and so forth.

Just more thoughts.
