The link this week is open from Sunday January 7 – Wednesday Jan. 10 at 7pm, Pacific time.
Curious how everyone is doing:) Really we want to know: the beautiful, the ugly, or the experience. Your photos last week were gorgeous!
Am still getting settled into the New Year, because we had some impromptu small parties after that.
Two little things to remind you
One: whatever meme/challenge I come up with, if you are unsure, the post ALWAYS starts with the name of that challenge. Example: ALL SEASONS – small beginnings.
Two: remember: one photo -per week, -per blog
For you, who also love art, CLICK on the current post for Weekend Journal Page
of Jan 5. The entrances of Dec. 8 were excellent.
Can’t wait to see your next project/progress!
The next one will be on Feb. 9, the Friday before Valentine’s Day
Small beginnings in 2018
Coffee and Quiche I called it, to make a small beginning to something I have been postponing and finding reasons not to do it.
Reasons, such as “I haven’t made quiche in 9 years” (which was true) and
“I need three of me and all the clinical skills I’ve gathered to make any difference (again, true) for the people I need to invite …”
“So, it’s too hard “(untrue, because I had not given it even a try)
“and therefore not worth it “(who am I to judge that??)
Ugh, so I knew my answer, and so I took the step on Christmas morning!
Left, German Stollen (Christmas bread with Marzipan) and on the right home made quiche with bacon and Cheddar Gruyere cheese. The food was a hit:)
A small beginning in the realm of art is always easier, because it’s so deeply imbedded in my DNA.
For some time, I have been thinking about the lack of teaching children and teens about the Creator. Most of them know him as the God of the universe, and the savior, but have no idea what it means in daily life that he is also the Creator. How can they know when they are 12, and never heard about it?
When some children (from 5 years on up) and teens came over between Christmas and New Year, I had prepared a sheet with short descriptions of the paintings, one of the things adults commented on, is most helpful. Also, they needed to answer 7 questions to get a candle. The questions made it easier to engage (and I could point them in the right direction:):))
These small beginnings do not take away that it still maybe a long time before you’ll hear about a step to the next level. I realize, it’s like when starting to renovating this castle … it may take years till it’s completely restored!
A small beginning was my challenge I took up this new year. Do you have one?
