Can I just say this one thing quickly? –I love this painting. I came across it when I was looking through an online art gallery of a new faith inspired creative community called, “His Kingdom Come” that I just joined. When I saw it, the inspiration hit. That’s how this little playful poem was born. I shared it with Shonna and she asked if she could digitally put it into her painting and I agreed (of course). For the past little while I’ve been wanting to get artsy, and I especially love mixed media and whimsical art. With the encouragement of people like Lorrie, I’ve decided to go ahead and seek out ways to do this. To my great delight (happy dance here) Shonna is working on starting up some classes for beginners (which I am). Yeah!

So, I always like to leave a little question (or two or four) here for readers. Do you ever get into a playful mood? What do you like to play when this mood strikes? There’s a little child within each of us, don’t you think?

Songs, Spiritual

Wholeness


Wholeness

Last week I posted a poem called, “Words, Mind, Emotions“, and shared how sometimes I find it difficult to calm my mind. I read something today that just hit me: “The world is so complex and over stimulating that you can easily lose your sense of direction“. Do you find this to be true? I do.

I began writing the above recently. It’s a song and a prayer. When I get flustered, confused, worried, etc, I come to my secret place and meet with my creator, and He seems to have a special way of just breathing peace and new life into my heart. As if He’s saying, “I know you don’t understand it all. I know that the world bombards you, screaming their ideas and thoughts. My child, you will never understand it all. Rest in me and know that I have everything under control.”

Now that’s comforting. I wouldn’t change it for the world.

How about you? Do you find this world to be complex and over stimulating? Do you ever feel like you lose your sense of direction? What do you do about it?
