Me Time

I love this week. It's like starting back to school for grown-ups. Tomorrow our Beth Moore bible study starts. We are doing A Woman's Heart, God's Dwelling Place.
And then on Friday, the watercolor class I've been taking for about a year starts up. God sent me the class at the peak of depression over my second son's problems. It was the only place I could put him out of my mind and do something for me. Since then, my son has moved out and we painted his room and made it a guest room. I moved my easel in there and now I sit and work on class projects in front of the window he used to throw his bedsheets out and climbed down into the night to do who knows what. I've framed and hung my first successful watercolor in this room, along with photos of my children from through the years. Once, I grieved each time I stepped into the chaos that was my son's room. Now, I feel comforted by God here, surrounded by physical reminders of His love and provision for me.

What a blessing to have an expression for your emotions. I'm always so envious of people who can paint, draw, sketch.

Can't wait to hear more about your Bible Study. I think "A Woman's Heart, God's Dwelling Place" is one of the studies I haven't done/led. So, you'll have to keep me posted!! Wish we had a group doing one here right now.

Is that your water color? It's gorgeous! "We begin A Woman's Heart..." next week. Can't wait!

Thanks for your prayers, Kathy. I'm here in Southern, IL with my parents now. The funeral is tomorrow.
