This weekend Aaron gave me time to myself.....much needed alone time. It was my Birthday Saturday and I told him that I wanted time to myself as my gift - and I got it! I didn't even know what I would do. Usually when I have a minute to myself I blog. Or edit photos. Or work on shop things. Or read. I didn't want to do any of that.
During these past few weeks I have been frustrated. Frustrated with Tariku. Frustrated with Lydia and Asher. Frustrated with Aaron. Frustrated with God. But, mostly frustrated with myself. I needed to do something to release all that yuck into something. And I don't run.
Some paints caught my eye shortly after Aaron left with the kids. So I painted. Worshiping Jesus at the same time. As I painted a lot of tension came pouring out and a lot of that frustration turned into beauty. Turns out painting is good for my soul.
So with all kids napping miraculously at the same time right now I am going to paint again. And pray as I go.
Not sure what will happen with my new hobby.... maybe someday they will end up here.
