What’s Behind My Curtain?

Curtain: Scribble Picnic Art Cooperative

Today the prompt is “curtain”. It’s funny as I had a vision the other day of a curtain partway open. Inside were my activities and they were looking at me – asking me “what’s going on?”

I think the dream or vision was showing me that I have all of these things on the go and is this to continue or am I to choose one over the others? Or drop them all?

This summer is an experiment in asking God to help me find my way.

Besides my life as a wife, mother and grandmother; friend; Board member of a charity etc. I love to paint, create, podcast and write.

This last week was wonderful and I spent the entire week with kids and grandkids. I ran a Vacation Bible school in the mornings and played with kids in the afternoons. It was a fun week. But now it’s back to reality. I actually podcasted about my week and it will be available next Tuesday on Hope Stream Radio.

But what about me?

The curtain represents life to me. (tweet this)

What’s opening up for me? Where is God leading me? What choices will there be?

There could be other things behind the curtain that I haven’t come across yet. That’s what is so exciting about life. We never know what will be next. I like that.

I would hate to have everything planned out so that there were no surprises. Some will be good; some not so good. But my faith keeps me focussed on God and watching and waiting for what’s next.

What’s behind your curtain?

Are you letting us see your true self? Or are you hiding in the wings? Can you be brave and try something new?

Do you have dreams and visions?

One vision I had was to help those who are abused. Here was that vision.

Another vision was to start a charity in our town. The charity is called HASP. Here is that vision.

A VISION

A Vision

by Ramona Furst

“How do you do it?” asked my darling civil engineering husband.

“Get that pattern from the paper onto those tiny squares in the material? You haven’t been cross stitching for, well, twenty-five years or so. Pretty ambitious Amish pattern to use after such a long time away from it. How long will it take?”

As he waited for me to answer, I thought to myself, How do YOU do it? Figuring out all the designs, loads, calculations; meeting standards and codes, that in due time will somehow materialize into highways and bridges?


Experience builds in us the belief that what seems impossible to comprehend by others, and at times even to us – ridiculous and somewhat overwhelming – can and will get done.

My project, your project, those visions and goals God’s called us to do with our lives often seem unbelievable. Praying that like Abraham we will believe God when we don’t know the wheres, don’t know the hows and don’t know whys of all our questions and for our next steps in life.

“For still the vision awaits its appointed time…” (Habakkuk 2:2EST)
