Get Back To It!
I have been greatly inspired by some fantastic artists in cyber world lately...inspired so much so that I have gotten out my pencils and my watercolours, and I am reacquainting myself with them. It is refreshing and comforting to draw again...I am not even sure why it was that I stopped. Anyhow, I know that there are many people who have stopped a hobby for whatever reason, laid it aside thinking that they will get back to it and never do. Well...I would like to encourage you to get back to it!
Whatever it was that filled your soul with peace, that you could completely give yourself over to, that activity that gave you a sense of satisfaction, perhaps it was carving, painting, collecting bugs, writing, decorating, singing, knitting, repairing, archery, volunteering...whatever it is that stirs you...don't hold back...get back to it! You may not be the best at it...it does not matter. What matters is that you enjoy it. Commit to taking at least 30 minutes a day to your lost love. If you cannot do that then try 1 hour uninterrupted one day a week (to start). Not enough hours in the day you say? That's a lie. It is all about priority. You make time to do many things in the day...begin to include this into your schedule also...it can be done and it will do you good. Ask God to be a part of whatever you are doing and work with Him...you may be surprised at what develops...Now, get back to it! And enjoy!
Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus. ~John 21:4
Who believes in you? Who do you believe in? I have always had trouble with this phrase. I mean, what does it mean to "believe"...
I didn't think much of it when it happened, but it did and here I am. What was it that led up to this event? I can barely recall. It doe...
Life. I see it everyday in the mechanical sense. People living life. The good, the bad, and ...neither...people just living. ...
