And wonders of His love...
And wonders, and wonders of His love.
This hymn is ringing through my head so I pick up my journal and pen to record this thought. Much the same as I have done the past two and a half years. Something comes to my head and I record it. It began as a game I played with myself. At first I recorded a word or two at time, as they came to me in snippets. I would set my paper down and click my pen closed and as soon I had dropped my pen another inspiring phrase would come to mind. I called the game “painting titles” as they sounded much the same as the phrases I had been using to title my paintings for the past several years. Soon I realized that I had over eight hundred painting titles. “What fun,” I thought “that’s a lot of paintings.” But I did not ever consider quitting the game and so I filled journal after journal this way, filling a page here and there with a body of ever growing wisdom that seemed to just come my way.
And so began the year of 2011 with my continued journaling but somewhere along the way it became clear to me that the wisdom and inspiration I was writing was coming from someone with a much higher and clearer perspective. No, I was not scared; I was comforted for each message was so gentle and loving. And then one day I knew that what I was writing was meant for me but as well meant for you. God had found a listening ear and a willing heart and writing His word as given was to be my part.
