Goodbye August, Goodbye Summer!

Another month has gone without a trace, can You make time pass a little slower oh Lord?!

I have many things in mind that I wanted to do, but the plans require long term dedication, I’m a bit afraid to even start.  I’ve been planning on an extended vacation back to Canada this Fall, it’s been more than 6 years since my last visit, really hope to meet and catch up with some old friends.  Perhaps it will also be a good time for me to take a little break, reflect on life, think more thoroughly before executing my plans with persistent dedication.

May my plans align with God’s purpose in me. ??

In his heart a man plans his coarse, but the Lord determines his steps. (Prv 16:9)

Creative Monday

Finished my Chinese calligraphy practice early today.  Spent a little time picking up watercolor afterwards.  I haven’t done any serious watercolor painting since started taking calligraphy classes more than a year ago.

I’m considering to join a watercolor contest that’s closing end of month (just 2 days left  ?).  I know full well that my watercolor skill is far from being competition worthy, but the competition is for Canada, and I really hope to contribute to the 150th anniversary celebration of my home and native land.  Let’s see if I can come up with something that’s not too humiliating to enter the contest in the next two days…

Lost and Found

IMG_4683Had been worrying all night that I may have dropped my keys on the street yesterday.  There was nothing I could do until the next morning and I knew worrying wouldn’t help the matter one bit.  Prayed, helped a little, but still didn’t sleep too well throughout the night.

I can’t describe how happy I was finding the keys in the studio today!  This song had been ringing in my head all day “… I once was lost, but now I’m found… how sweet the sound…”

I also recall the biblical story of the prodigal son and how happy his father was seeing him return home after wasting all his money.  And there’s also the story of the shepherd who left his 99 sheep in the pen and then go out to search for that one lost sheep.  How happy he was when he found it!  Finding my keys today helped me understand a little better of how God must feel when we leave our sinful lives behind and return to Him.
