I am joining Kathleen at Faded Charm today for White Wednesday, please join in the fun...
I am in my studio today,
as I have been for over a week now but not creating or having fun.
I have been tearing apart and sorting and putting things in bins.
I am moving out of the studio at the Gallery.
It has been fun but I have not been there enough to justify the cost.
As you may know I have a studio in my back yard, it was even featured in Where Women Create a year ago.
But since closing the shop it has been used for storage.
It is a mess!
I have been strung out
I have had one busy year and I just have not had any time to simplify my life, it is full of clutter and unfinished business. So I set aside this time to re-group and organize.
But as life would have it, I need to be out of town this weekend and be out of the studio too.
So what would have been a good plan turned into stress and frustration. I have been working in heat and humidity, so I haven't been as productive as I would like and I am fighting against time.
Somewhere between things going wrong, such as putting a double tent up to put all my stuff in from the studio, so I could paint and reorganize and waking up to it being a crumpled mess from storms and not being able to move things because of a bad shoulder...
I lost my joy.
I started looking at the problems and trying to muddle through on my own strength and all I got were pins and needles... headaches!
And then the light finally went on in my head...
Give it up and give it all to your Lord. Stop trying and let him handle it. This is not a new concept for me, but sometimes I get so head strong in what I have in front of me that everything else gets out of proportion...
am I the only one that is so head strong?
I have to tell you the minute I did this, things started falling into place. I felt like I had gotten the winning ticket.
My son dropped by out of the blue and fixed the tent as good as it could be... (it is now a single) but it did the trick. I made headway in packing and today my son and son in law came and moved me out of my space.
All of it done in an evening, which I thought was going to take days.
Today I am grateful for such wonderful children and for the lesson I have been taught this week by my Heavenly Father.
I am also grateful for you...
