Making My First Art Journal
I'm making my first art journal ever.
I don't even have to show anyone...
it's all mine.
equally as fun and inspiring fun, is to peek into the journals of so many talented artists/bloggers/friends and see their hearts and style and talent poured out on paper.
I'm still feeling wiped out by the holidays. really feeling the january blahs. so hardto give myself a swift kick in the pants...and I'm wondering if I'll ever find balance... or is this ebb and flow just a part of life.
I get so caught up in a my art and paint and paper... that I exhaust myself and my family and relationships and responsibilities suffer... laundry threatens to eat us alive...
I know this.
I already know this in my brain.
why is it so hard to do?
at 2:30 in the morning.
i just want to go
is to be.
and get filled up.
so that i have something to give
the people I love.
I went back to Oswald Chambers in My Utmost today.
It made me so happy.
Such wisdom and truth:
Am I as spontaneously kind to God as I used to be,
or am I only expecting God to be kind to me?
...There is no joy in the soul that has forgotten what God prizes.
Off to journal...
