Debra B's Special Thanksgiving
On this day of thanksgiving, I would like to write a little about the blessings that the amazing Lord God has recently given to me. This experience has led to my painting, “Pepe Le Putois”. Going back to 1994 while working in a large accounting firm in
I awoke from the surgery legally blind. Though many would be devastated by this, I praise the Lord. HE allowed me enough vision to still read print, do photography and especially paint. The best way to describe how I see would be as if I were looking through a tiny opening of a straw. I would have to see with the Lord God’s powerful grace.

A dream come true
In September I experienced another miracle of God, HIS preserving grace. As I stepped outside in the early morning to dump my trash in the dumpster, I was hit with the smell that was like 10 skunks, very strong! This walkway was well lit and as I near the dumpster, I heard “drop it! drop it! Move back inside!” “There is a bear on the otherside”. I yelled back a very loud thank you, for the warning. This was enough to scare the bear and he ran away. Warning signs are still up on the dumpster today. There has even been a bear found in there since, even though these are supposedly ‘bear proof’ dumpsters! I used this experience by painting my humourous painting, “Pepe Le Putois”. It was in the telling of this story with Ral, that she encouraged me to post here, along with God’s mercy, power and grace. I pray this post will give hope to others. I pray you will thank the Lord for your blessings, small or large.
