So I was saying, I need to refresh and find more humor in life. The artworks I had scheduled this week are hands. And that works perfectly. I can see God reaching out and holding me. Guiding me. Reaching out to others. Trying to help others.
This song has been stuck in my head. I have many friends going through some really, really tough stuff. Please take a second and listen to this:
He has got us. We never leave His hands. He is leading us.
Right now He is taking me by the hand and leading me to refresh.
I made a HUGE decision last week. I am going to take a YEAR LONG Sabbatical from volunteering. I am going to say NO. Crazy for me I know.
I am going to refresh myself. I am going to refresh my family. I am going to help refresh some of my friends. I am going to rest in his steadfast love and faithfulness. I am going to focus on art. I am going to use my art to do a lot of that refreshing. I can use it as a service.
But I am not volunteering.
I am going to hold others in my hands and show them love, faith, humor, and refreshment. I am going to make humor a big part of that. I am going to smile even more. I am going to laugh even more. I am going to infuse my art with all of that.
My hubby is crazy excited about this. He is not sure I can do it. But we are both sure hoping that I can. 🙂
