Monday was day one for a new online class with Mystele .... and I was ready to go with my little canvas smeared with paint. It's an excersize called "pulled" or "found" art where you randomly smear paint on a canvas , let it dry and then return to see what you see to begin the story in the canvas, which I did on Sunday night. Monday came with a call from Elizama, and I needed to go spend the day with her to advise and encourage her in her life's events. She is one of my kids ... and as we talked, laughed, prayed and cried ....watching her tenderly nurse and care for her baby brought the situation into focus with so much hope for her future with her little family. ANYWAY, I came back home that evening and decided to try and focus on my art class and take a look at my little smeared canvas ..... and there she was in the canvas!! The class is called "Story Telling" ..... so here is my story of the day with Elizama. Sometimes we just have to relax in our art to see what is there waiting for us. The scripture on the leaf, randomly picked from a pile of leaves I had cut out for a collage, said " Be patient with those weak in the faith." It was prophetic! The map signifies..."Where will they go?" The answered prayer for the story is that they have found a place to live, and want to have Bible Studies at their home every week, which Trini has agreed happily and faithfully to do! Trini, Maxi and their family are awesome!! ENJOY THE PROCESS!! BLESSINGS TO YOU ALL!
