I start late morning
with a blank slate
and essential oils blend motivate, the encouraging blend
2 cups of coffee later
a painting is half way done
doubt has come and gone and been ignored
perseverance painted layer by layer
my strokes move with music
then with silence
and it's the end of afternoon now
So I will break
take time to move away from the focused work
eat dinner and play board games with family
return later with fresh eyes and renewed patience.
Monday I cleaned bathrooms and vacuumed floors
Tuesday I met with girlfriends and went to the pool
Wednesday I sketched and painted a custom order
Tomorrow I will paint and pack (for a weekend trip).
Little glimpses of life
Whatever your glimpses look like;
I pray God's gentle presence meets you and strengthens you in the mundane and the magical.
