i am a show stealer.
I was crushed. Not because I don't expect this type of thing to happen in the arts and crafts world- especially when I freely post images of my work on social media sites- no, I am fully aware of how much is copied online. I was crushed because this was a close friend, one who has always supported my pursuit of art, but also, one who has seen my art in real life, not just on social media sites.
It hurt so much to see my friend take credit for an image that mirrored mine, mostly, I just felt betrayed...
but, then as I sat there processing , trying to figure out how I should respond, it hit me like a ton of bricks...don't we do the same thing to God? don't we always steal his show?
He gives us time, energy, and talents. He works through us and in the end we take all the glory. Funny. I am only given the ability to create because of my Creator in me. I am but dust without Him.
