My friend Jean is visiting for the weekend, and we intend to GOOF OFF, big time. For us, that means catching up on each other’s busy lives, drinking wine, eating Mexican food, making art, and attending a special art workshop at a local art supply store–and doing lots and lots of laughing. Sometimes a little crying, too, and definitely some praying, since Jean is a Lutheran pastor.
Our lovely summer weather has returned–I love these bright and sun-spangled days. Then again, ALL days are precious, aren’t they? These, my friends, are the good ole days we will someday look back on and remember with nostalgia. Let’s make them count, by enjoying them, and by understanding that any beautiful piece of art must have shadows as well as splashes of bright color. I believe that, to God, our lives literally are works of art.
ENJOY your Friday, and the weekend to follow. I’ll be tweeting pictures from the art class and posting them here and on Facebook–how nice to think that, in a way, you’ll all be there, too, joining in the fun.
God loves you. He thinks you’re beautiful.
And so do I.
