I love it when a plan comes together. I knew I was saving all of these artworks until now for a reason. I love when I create something because it touches me that day, but then I look back at them and can put them together like puzzle pieces. It helps me feel safe in God’s plan.
He knew I was going to need this renewal time. Summer usually is my retreat–I escape to family farms in Iowa, and to Michigan or Ohio. This summer, circumstances with schedules are not allowing for the travel–and maybe that is good. God knew I was going to need my own home to be my retreat. He wants me to renew right here. He was waiting for ME to wait for His word. All of these changes in my diet would be crazy hard traveling. I would never stick with it.
God, I have heard you. I am listening. I am ready for your renewal. You are my place of quiet retreat.
How about you? Are you doing any renewing this summer?
