It's been a very, very frustrating day. Actually, that's not true. I'm tired and being a bit overly dramatic. But I am just frustrated in general. Frustrated enough, in fact, that the fact that I can't figure out why the photo I just tried to upload is vertical instead of horizontal just figures and I'm going to leave it. But, oh well. The point is, I'm really frustrated and feeling really sorry for myself, but with children's church songs stuck in my head. The ones I sang, not the ones my daughter sings. I decided wanted to color. And when I got my crayons out, I drew the songs. And the drawing is nice. It's a pretty picture that reminds me that "Happiness is to be forgiven, living the life that you've been given." and "I just thank you Father for making me, Me."
Yes, things are not falling into place like I wish they would. But apparently God has a reason for that. I'm not sure what it is, but the overriding message of my day has been that God is my happiness. That's what I need to hold on to and remember.
And by the way- I forgot just how amazing oil crayons are. I first played with them at camp when I was 14, bought myself a set 3 years ago and have made, counting tonight- 4 drawings. Which means I'm averaging one a year. But I learned to paint last week and I colored this week. I think I might be an artist.
