Welcome to the weekend. It’s finally starting to get nice around these parts, so if all things go well I might be able to do some glass sculptures.
I’ve been in a funk this week, in part because I’ve got a lot of changes coming my way. Life is full of change, of course, but sometimes it feels like it all happens at once. I’m doing a lot of praying (for patience, trust) and I’ve been feeling plenty of thankfulness in addition to the tears that have come my way. It’s been one of those kind of weeks, where you’re knocked off your feet by the changing landscape and also the kindness of friends and family.
It makes you happy for the goodness in the world, and in challenging times it can be rough to see where the goodness really is, but it’s there, waiting for you to slow down, turn around, and embrace it.
In times like this, being creative really helps put things in perspective. What a good time to take a look at some artsy blogging links.
