The Wonder of It All

 

“Ask the animals, and they will teach you. Ask the birds of the sky, and they will tell you. Speak to the earth, and it will instruct you. Let the fish of the sea speak to you. They all know that the Lord has done this. For the life of every living thing is in his hand.”
Job 12:7-10
There is no lack of wonders; only a lack of wonder.

I admit it. I am lost in the wonder of it all. Well, maybe not lost, but having a very good time wandering around. Writing my memoir, exploring watercolor; keeping focus on my spiritual path; learning from masters; taking a new step everyday.

It feels wonderful to enter into 2020 knowing I have completed a manuscript for my memoir, Journey Girl, Steps in Secrets and Sanctuary. 

I feel a wonderful release to come to the watercolor paper and putting some shapes, lines, texture, and color on it to see what together, the paper and I, can co-create.

It is breathtaking to be really looking into the God-created nature around me and right under my feet. I can write about or create an image of what is the handiwork of the Great Artist who made all. I can deepen my spiritual center by Lectio Divina, and listening to the written word given us. I can make a Quest Circle and enter the traveling community on-line to process, through art, what is my daily reality.

I can breath easily and freely.

 

It is stabalizing to me to have a room dedicated to the work and the wonder of words and art.

I am so thankful to all those who have helped me find and explore the wonders of this literary and artfilled path;  Janet Conner, JoAnn Deck, Cat Caracelo, Angela Fehr, Carla Sonheim, Mary Gilkerson, Christine Valters Paintner,  Karen and Robert Gifford, Betty Lue Lieber and Robert Walton,  Catherine Anderson, Diana Marra,  Anita Lehman, to name the ones I am most connected to. There are others.

It is a wonderful start to 2020.
