Goodbye First .5 of 2017

Another quarter’s gone and the first half of 2017 passed.  What have I done with the time that God had entrusted me with?

For the last couple of months, I had finally met up with all the friends I promised to meet and catch-up with during CNY.  I planned to meet them earlier, but my uncle’s passing away in March pulled me into a withdrawal state for at least a month.  Feeling much better now, but I don’t think I’m entirely out of that state of mind yet. 

Work has been stalled for many months for me now, my uncle’s passing away made me realized what I’ve been trying to establish in the studio seemed rather meaningless.  I felt a bit lost.

I resorted to reading books, watching movies, and indulging in art (daily calligraphy and portraiture practice) as a way of healing the soul and finding my way out.  I also managed to keep up with my daily spiritual devotion with God over this period, for I know I’m nothing without Him. 

After the 2nd quarter of 2017, I think I’m more or less healed from the lost of my uncle.  I’m also more clear of God’s purpose in me.  It’s about time for me to leave the state of withdrawal behind and actively start life new again!  Oh God, please let me continue to humbly walk with You daily, to act justly, to love mercy, and to use the gifts You have given me to serve others as a faithful steward of Your grace in its various forms.
