Can you say in one word what is important to you?
Can you say in one word what is important to you? I am trying to say in one word what this blog is about. Why I write, who I write for. What I write about.
If I could only tell you one message what would it be?
Today I wrote and started to draw a little booklet to give to you. A book telling you, “You Are An Artist.” Or maybe, “Everyone is an artist.” But, you are not everyone, you are you. Or maybe the book would be, “You can draw.” Because I hear every day in the grocery story, walking in the neighborhood and in the coffee shop, “I can’t draw.”
You can draw.
And I would yell back, “You can. You can. You can.”
I have been thinking about writing this book for you for the past eighteen months. That is long enough to have made two babies, and I can’t make up my mind what to title the book.
I wanted to write the book, illustrate it, and finish it today, but there was life with children, and two dogs and four cats and seven litter boxes. And, how did I think I could finish the book in one day when it has taken me almost two years to decide on a title?
My one word about what I talk about would be art. Cat? No, maybe it is hope. No, maybe it is grace. Seven litter boxes? No, maybe it is about burning the cauliflower again. This morning is the second day in a row that I burned the pot dry trying to steam cauliflower for breakfast.
Why do I write?
Do I write so I don’t have to wash the dirty pots? Do I write to avoid doing laundry? Do I write to keep me too busy to rearrange the living room furniture? Do I write to avoid cleaning the seven litter boxes?
I write to remind you that you are enough.
You are valuable and loved by a big God. God made you special and he loves you very much.
One word. hmmm I need at least seven.
What is your one word. What is important to you?
