and jumped on an idea to rework the piece onto canvas with paint. I don't love it, but I don't hate it either. I have faith and hope that as I experiment with taking a doodle and making it something else, it will all bloom.
Hope is necessary. It is what keeps me going, in art, in life, really, in everything.
Little did I know, as I worked on this piece called HOPE Saturday morning, we would receive the devastating news in regards to our church family.
My first instinct, as it was for many, was to reach out to those I know and ask what we could do without stopping to think and know that all we can do is pray. My heart aches for Kay as a mother. My heart breaks for Pastor Rick as our pastor and my heart is broken for Matthew as he battled so long and so hard with his illness.
HOPE, that is what we all need. We must share HOPE, practice HOPE and remind others that HOPE is a necessary part of our life. We must,must, must look through to the future with HOPE and never ever give up.
