Light and love. Spread that stuff thick. Like peanut butter. That has become my mantra for this year. And I thought I was going to focus on either “enough” or “surrender”. God is so funny like that!
I just finished this art for this little week long series on houses. I sketched it last fall, but then it just sat there, no color, no words. Bleh. So I painted it, as bright as I could. I added all the flowers, and the birds, and the little doodad details. And then I saw something about spread love everywhere on Pinterest–and I thought of this little drawing. Of a village. With variety. A place with a lot of understanding, trust, big and little things, knowledge, treasures. Light. and Love. And Kindness. You know–knowledge, understanding, all that jazz. 🙂
This is what I want my world to look like I decided. Happiness and love bouncing around. Closeness. Joy, even amongst the hills and valleys. A place where there are similarities, but no cookie cutters. A place where kindness, light and love are spread THICK, or at least where I can spread it thickly.
Now, in this little piece, I can kind of see Greenfield, Iowa where I was born and where my parents live again. Hmmm. And my aunt made a keen observation–maybe I long for a 3 story house with an art studio on the top level lined with windows so I can see out on all God’s love and light. Hmmm. Perhaps someday.
Learned a lot about myself this week. Did you learn anything?
