With the new year quickly approaching, I thought I would list a few of my favorite things from 2010 -
1. My younger daughter is just recently mature enough to play well with my older daughter. (I hear angels singing in the background - ahhhhhhh!)
2. I discovered fashion blogs.
3. I had the opportunity to create artwork to hang on the walls of my church.
Creating this artwork was the first time I really used my artistic gifts in a significant way. I felt like I was participating in something bigger than myself. This experience showed me that art can be "soul" significant. Brian Godawa points out in his book Word Pictures that the first person mentioned in the Bible as being filled with the spirit of God was an artist! He also states, "Roughly 30 percent of the Bible is rational propositional truth and laws, while 70 percent of the Bible is story, vision, symbol, and narrative - that is, image."
