I look back on 2021, and Wow! We have truly been blessed. Although we didn’t make it in to two film festivals, we did get in to two other ones, with more on the way quite possibly this year. The Content21 Film Festival that my script was nominated for, “Best Feature Screenplay, ” opened up huge doors for us on FilmFreeway. I was such a newbie. I had no idea how it all worked. But thankfully, by entering the Content21 Film Festival in Texas, I had to get my feet wet and start to learn the process.

This morning, I was thinking about how God is a “today” or a “now” God. Our Fiscal Sponsor, Carole Dean of From the Heart Productions wrote a book titled “The Art of Manifesting.” (For more information) please see FTH’s website: www.fromtheheartproductions.com. I also just today, came across a wonderful article on the Kenneth Copeland website: https://blog.kcm.org/why-its-time-to-pick-a-date/ about picking a date, and manifesting. “Picking a date stirs up your faith. It puts pressure on your faith to perform, to expect and to receive. Think about July 4th. We celebrate on that day, but that isn’t the date when America actually acquired independence. That was the day the Founding Fathers declared independence. They picked a date. The manifestation came later, but the declaration set their faith in motion to receive.” A lot of what is in this article is what Carole Dean has been teaching me for years.
So, let’s discuss further. Declare/d is defined as: formally announce. Manifestation is defined as: “evidence of, clear or obvious, clearly seen.” The Bible states in Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Bishop Herbert Bailey in the above article also stated, “Picking a date calls your faith higher!” It is scary to declare, “This time next year we will be in production.” But none the less, I am putting my faith out there, believing for Father God to manifest all we need to do so. He has already started to. I love the saying by Mark Twain, “Why not go out on a limb? That’s where all the fruit is.”
So, by late October/November 2022, when the fall leaves are at their peak and full of color, we will be in production! Thank You, Jesus!
I can instantly see how declaring something has already put me in that state of mind, of being in production by this time next year. I just need to keep my faith strong, to uphold up my declaration that it is happening a year from now. I am actually very happy with this timing, because it is the time I set to learn my skating program with Cathy. I decided not to push it, so as not to hurt myself, or to give a bad performance. I am also journaling our progress: https://thememoirsofsummerray.com/juliana-as-summers-skating-double/.
I feel like we have crossed over huge hurdles this past year in 2021. Although it was one of great obstacles with my getting so sick from the Covid19 vaccines, breaking my wrist and rib, it has also been one of great success for us and for that, I am truly thankful.
Also, the Summer Ray book series, are now available in hardback. To view the books please visit: https://thememoirsofsummerray.com/the-summer-ray-book-series/
I am now in the process of working on the props needed. I know we can reduce our budget by making things, via donations, or going to thrift and antique stores. It’s actually a lot of much needed fun. The Bible also states in James 2:17, “Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.” (KJV). The (NIV) version’s translation states, “In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.” I love the “accompanied by action.” So, that is what we are doing. We are accompanying our faith with action that we are going into production this time next year! If you would like to donate, all donations via From the Heart are tax deductible.
