The Pastel Palette Method

Monday and trying to grab a few hours in the studio for art's sake

Hi All,

Today was Monday. My 9-5 was alright. It gives me lots of time to think about the direction of my life and my career. I am a visual person so the sights of the gray skies and the women dressed n earth colors are still in my mind from my walk. Each day, on my lunch break, I walk and pray, listening to the NIV version of the Bible on my iPad. Its my quiet time with God. Its a lunch date I never want to break.

Seeking God's will for my life is my biggest question each afternoon. Something God will whisper parts of His plan for me, in that still small voice. If you think I am crazy, then try and spend time with God, meditating on His Word. You will find out as well.

I am a painter and my hands are like a thoroughbred horse stuck in the stable. My hands are made to create and when they are not...they cramp up. I cramp up spiritually. I am not special. We all have our spiritual gifts that are bestowed upon us , undeservedly. Some of us can cook the most exquisite meals while others may have the gift of music; still others are talented film makers. Maybe these gifts are God's way of helping us get through the storms of life? Before I go to bed this evening, I am going to do something that feeds the gift that God has given. I hope you do as well.

Here is a beautiful song by one of today's most talented song writers, Matraca Berg.
