Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. (Ephesians 4:29) 

We struggle with self image when we compare ourselves to "celebrities." We get depressed when we look at our circumstances and try to figure out how we are going to overcome them on our own. We forget that we are created perfectly, exactly the way God wanted us to be. We were created full of purpose and in the image of God. We all need to encourage each other and lift each other up with our words. Once people realize that GOD cares about them more than other people care about them they can realize the importance of praising GOD. One important way to praise GOD is to care for other people, His creations, and lift them up with our words. Just never forget that GOD always remains at the top of the praise ladder, no one else ever gets that spot. 

Are you still reading this? OK.

Yes, I am a Christian.

No, I don't think I'm better than you.

Yes, I think God has a sense of humor.

No, I don't think I'm funny. It took a while, but when I was a kid I realized that when my mom asked me "Do you think you're funny?" the correct answer was "no ma'am".

I just want to encourage people. You can print my art for free anytime. I often leave art on the street and in public places for random people to find, because Hey! Free art rocks! 

BREVKi ~ What's up with the little "i"? The little "i" comes from this verse:
John 3:30 He must become greater; I must become less.

* The reason I smile. 
I am a believer and follower of Jesus Christ. So let's just get it all out there. I do not claim to have it all figured out and I do not believe that I am any better than any other human on earth. My faith in Jesus gives me hope for a spectacular eternal life that leaves this life looking pretty sad. I do not wish to offend anyone with this, quite the opposite. I wish that everyone had the kind of joy and hope I have. I think that it would be offensive to others if I were to keep this hope hidden and to myself and not share it. 

* my art
Buy it or not I don't really care. You can google BREVKi any time, find my blog, and print any image you want for free. I give you permission to do that right now. What I really want is for you to have joy. And that is where Jesus comes in for me. My art reflects my joy that I receive with my faith. I can't seperate my faith from the rest of my life. This is me and this is why I can smile. 

Remember, play nice, love one another, God bless us, we need it.
