Sunday spiritual seconds part II
Today I'm thankful for answered prayers...I guess I mean answered prayers in which I am grateful for the outcomes. I can specifically think of two. I loved clay and was very frustrated last year at how hard throwing was and having to relearn it on an electric wheel (with the wheel going the different way)...but I kept with it and now am excited that I am able to make some of the things I dreamed about making.
I'm also very thankful for my friends. I prayed for good neighbors and new friends and feel my new friends are more wonderful than I could've even imagined! Yes, if you're reading this I mean YOU!!! (Well, unless I don't know you and you're a stalker or something.)And if you're not reading this, it's okay...I know you have a busy life.
I've heard people making a prayer journal before and writing down their requests and how God answered them...It sounds like a good idea. I just might get around to it some day.
What prayers have been answered with unexpected outcomes in your life lately? What are you praying for? May I pray for them with you?
Visit Yosemite or, oh heck, visit every national park in the U.S.
A really good pot is in the details. --Doug Casebeer at the Ceramics Workshop in Jamaica '10
There's only one way to grow while making art: take risks and allow yourself to make a lot of bad work, then look at it. I consider what is working well, what missed the mark or confused the reading, what needs to be adjusted on the next one. --Linda Arbuckle in The Penland Book of Ceramics
All great actions have been simple, and all great pictures are. --Ralph Waldo Emerson
