Do you find yourself restless? Feeling uncomfortable? Right now I do because I don’t feel comfortable where I’m at. It’s like shedding of my skin and now renewing myself to the next level. The question when it first starts is, what is going on? Why am I getting kind of crabby and am disjointed in my thinking? My thoughts go all over the place. Why am I doing what I’m doing? I wear myself out. What is eating me? Finally I realize what the matter is. I’m GROWING!!
So many times I want to “figure” out what to do next in my art career. I’ve done that through the years and I’ve had some “success”. The thing is, it isn’t as satisfying as following the path that God puts me on. It maybe slow but it is the surer path to peace and joy. I chose a tougher path because It helps me grow more in love and maturity. I have met the most wonderful people on this path and I am very grateful because it isn’t about things but relationships. I don’t have to “figure” out just Go His Way.
It’s amazing how the commercials are more joyful around this time of year. It’s good will to all men and women no matter what. That is what the relationship to God and Christ is all about. It isn’t about religion but the walk we do each and every day. That understanding is what we are called to do for others as we do for ourselves. Yes the religious get caught up on the do’s and don’ts but God wants us to see more in each individual.
We all have troubles that is the human quotient but how we handle those troubles with humility and great attitude. So as the Holy Spirit reminds me ” Get your big girl pants on” and tackle each day with joy the rest will make each much easier. So I’m sending joy to you and me!
November 7th 2015, Their was an outpouring of love and appreciation going on. Fred and Gail Tieken had their first opening of their art gallery and invited 44 (plus Fred) artists to show their work called AZ45. It was a magical evening. The work that was put into this opening was amazing!! It was like a premiere. They had Kleig lights, caterers, valet parking and a wonderful jazz group. It was fun to mix with so many young artists that I had never met and getting to see their work. They also had a professional photographer taking pictures. The weather was just right and under the stars it couldn’t be more perfect. What a gift you gave us all Fred and Gail. Thank you.
Sometimes I get into my head and do too much thinking in pursuit of what? Do you do that too? It is a futile exercise.
Wondering what SHOULD I do next. I need to be quiet and listen for the answer instead of trying to figure it out. Letting the Holy Spirit guide me. I’m much more willing to listen because with age hopefully comes wisdom. So what am I in pursuit of now? I’ll let you know. Let me know what you are in pursuit for.
This summer has been a blessing even with some minor physical problems. It caused me to really listen to the Holy Spirit and be quiet. I am content more so than I’ve ever been. I’m playing with paints and the images are coming out so differently than the plainly abstract that I usually do. I don’t question it I’m just playing with paint and not questioning it. Aspen trees I just love so here are 2. They range in price.
