It's been over 5 years since I completed this series of art, titled You are Here, and had my first solo exhibit. It's tough to hear myself talk (anyone else have that experience?), but I love looking back at this season that was not so long ago and be reminded of how blessed I truly am. I remember the value of enjoying each and every season of life, pressing in, and celebrating even in the mundane tasks we all have to do. Now I have two teenagers and an 8 year old, working full time in an amazing job, and still creating. I've gone through many highs and lows, but the truth remains, God is with me, no matter how I feel. The Spirit continues to remind me when I forget or want to give up.
Wherever you are in your life, remember to be fully present, experiencing the joy and pain of each moment.
Here's a video my cool husband put together to capture the process and series:
