You are welcome, Gracie :) I have resized it to a slightly different dimension here (this was the first time I had made something 6x9, and I thought it looked too long :eek:), as well as made a few other minor changes :D

I crashed my browser trying to do touchups :eek:

I have made more minor changes. When my browser crashed, I lost the
ability to edit the layers that had accumulated since yesterday afternoon :p

So I lost a few things (like the poinsettias behind the cross).

Still, I better stop now :D

Thank you, Angela :D I always considered this a gift from the Spirit of the universe (in those days I was spiritual, not religious, and not Christian). Most of our work is digital now. I have started designing templates to use for Scriptures and prayers here; the one I have been working on today is up to layer 1904 :eek: LOLOLOL What is one of your favorite Scriptures, Angela? I will put it on my current template-in-the-making, and post it for you :)
Thanks, but I don't have one , yet. Sorry :(

What was the job of my dreams? As a kid, I wanted to be a vet like my Dad. That faded away during my teens. I wanted to study law, history or political sience and become a full time politician. That was the first desire God removed from me when I got saved. He spared both me and world for agony by doing that. I would have been terrible at it. Then I wanted to be a musician. I studied at the Norwegian State Academy to become a professional bassoonist. I dreamt of playing in one of the major orchestras. I played as a freelancer, chambermusic and in orchestra and even as a soloist. I also taught bassoon and conducted windbands. Due to my muscular dystrophy that dream and profession is crushed once and for all. Although I always tried to honor God with my playing, I really wanted the glory for myself.

One thing I never wanted to be was a teacher (like my mum). And that is what I have become! And I love it. The job I never wanted for myself turned out to be a true blessing and I could never thought I would love a job so much as I do. I get more and more challenges and it becomes more and more fun. I have my dream job. I just didn't dream it.
Such an interesting story about your career, with (I presume) a happy ending :eek: !

I have had alot of dream jobs. I have been a pro card player, model manager, the guy who can get you backstage at concerts, game developer, and even tried other things. I can say these are the worst, most stressful, head banging jobs you will ever experience. Avoid dream jobs at all costs. Some of my favorite jobs I had was door knocking with magazines, security guard, and handing out flyers. These jobs were fun and I was always happy.

I feel sorry for your experience :( . But it depends on the person, the dream job and the person's choice.
Your experience is not everyone else's. No offence.

Still, glad you enjoyed that particular job :) .Maybe you are more into simpler tasks than personal and hard ones.
With this, I don't want to imply you aren't a hardworker! Because you demonstrate the opposite.

I enjoy hard tasks as well. My point was that dreams are not always what they seem to be and sometimes are dreams are not always what we think. And dream jobs are still jobs like every other when you actually start. Its a path that you strive for and suffer make sacrifices. Many thing its the easy way out but its quiet the opposite. I am still working at one of those dream jobs.
