Day 500 – Angels & games

Sunday, July 9th 2017

Wow! Day 500. Not stopping yet though! Never gonna.

Today was good. I went to church, and I since the topic of angels were on my mind a lot lately, I had an idea of what to draw; two ideas, actually. One was two people, one possibly happily talking or helping someone with pale coloured angel wings. The idea was off one of my favourite verses : “Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels.” (Hebrews 13:2 – New King James Version). Meaning, the drawing would represent someone helping or happily talking, and in better words, entertaining a stranger, which is actually an angel in disguise. The pale wings would hopefully give an invisible to the other person effect. However, my dad later pointed out most angels don’t actually have wings, and not really the ones that would be disguised, except for one was, but forgot which, so I don’t know what I’m going to do to represent the angel. I know I’m going to have the verse written underneath, but I will have to find another trait instead of the wings.

The other idea, was when I was a kid, I remember opening my eyes in bed to a slightly hairy and caucasian hand with a pure white sleeve belonging to a robe, right in front of my face at the edge of my bed, as if there was a man standing there. He disappeared a second after and I didn’t know whether it was a dream, or an actual angel. I know even less now, cause I have had a few occurences lately where I have sort of short illusions when I just woke up, as if I had a sort of dream as I was awake. But either way, I love how angels look out for us, and the idea of an angel looking out for me as a kid while sleeping is really sweet, so I want to portray that moment, where as a kid, an angel stands at the edge of my bed while I’m sleeping.

Other than that, I spent time with staff playing Necropolis. It’s a pretty fun game, although it’s a shame you only have one character and one world to play on. If you want to make a new one, you have to erase your old one.

I also went on the server a little and then after supper, played a tiny bit of For The King, as well as watched an episode of Supernatural.

Going to bed now, since it’s almost 10pm, and I have to wake up at 5:20am to go back to my job that pays well, but feels like torture sometimes.

That’s all for today.
