In the middle of February this year, I got notice that my 'Starbucks' piece got into Society of Illustrator(SI) 2010 Student Scholarship Exhibition. Today(May 7th) is the Opening day for the show, but I am here, at MCV hospital Emergency room in Richmond with my roommate. She has been had stomachache and tooth pain, and has thrown up several times since last night.
It's my third time I couldn't go to the SI exhibition this year. first time I was in Korea, second time it was very awful snowstorm all over east cost, I lost my transportation (also safety issue). This time, I missed my bus and my roommate is sick. (My roommate and I went bus station in the morning, but the direction I got was wrong, far from bus station, we went private land, faced to dead end sign.
I surrendered GOD again saying wow.. Ok GOD, if you want to stop me you can definitely stop me. I am sorry I put my will before your will. I accepted it and I thank you.
What I am saying is that GOD wants me to focus him only not on this secular world. Specially now I am training to go mission trip in this summer, I need to only focus him more than any other time in my life. however I rationalized my thought that I am going there not for my good for his good, I need to meet art directors to get a job, so I can do GOD's work. So I pestered him to let me go saying I won't loose my focus on you. But as a result, God stoped me, and I am glad he did. I wasn't 100% sure he said I can go also felt uncomfortable little bit. GOD is good. he makes all together for my good. I thank that I got wrong direction so I missed bus. if I didn't, I wasn't able to sit here, emergency room next by my roommate Nina, who is going through several complicated exams, and complaining of pain in her abdomen every 30 minutes.
Please pray for Nina, her physical body pain also her spirit. and pray for the people who will see my piece at the SI exhibition in New York tonight. I drew little cross again like I did on my Kitchen piece.finally please pray for our mission trip, I will post the detail about the mission soon.
Thank you all so much,
