sorry no gnome on youtube

hi folks, this past week i posted a photo of a gnome i had carved,, and below is the reason i removed it from facebook,,   have a great week , arleen

posted on facebook
hi folks,,  as i was attempting to make another sitting project this week of a santa, it ended up missing the tassel,, lol and thought i will make my first gnome,, today i regret it,, i decided to remove the photo ,,,,   why,, well as many of you know i am a person of faith,, as soon as i finished it i didn't feel right about it,, after some prayerful time, and chatting with another christian friend about it,, i came to the conclusion that i cant make a video of it,,  after some study about the history of gnomes, i know now why i and that uneasy feeling about it,,  i realize that many of you have no problem carving and creating these, that is fine ,   my faith is a personal journey not anyone elses, and so are my personal convictions,,

 and i got more likes on this picture of the gnome then of anything i ever carved,,  which baffled me,, thinking this might be a great to carve to sell as well,,  but the uneasy feeling never left me ,,,  but many of you like gnomes,  and i am sure there are other sites that can teach you how to make them,, i am sorry that i will not be able to do it ,i always will follow what feel the lord leads me to do,,  and this is one of those times,,  i know many of you will not understand this, some will ,,  we all come from different backgrounds, faiths, and customs, and i am happy that you choose to be a part of my carving world and thanks for your support ,,,, at the end of the day it really comes down to one thing,, did i live me life to what my faith teaches,,  and did i honor him,,  and tonight as i sign off ,, yes i am honoring the one that saved me ... keep carving ,, arleen
