grand-rapids-snow.jpgToday is the kind of day you want to stay indoors, snuggle under a blanket, and drink hot cocoa.  The clouds are so thick … the light even at noon is pretty dim.  Most people hate this kind of weather, but personally, I love it.  The world becomes quiet, as if in a moment of prayer.

 It makes me want to pray.  To be still in the presence of God.  To be aware of the presence of God.

I am feeling a calling to paint, to finish the prayer painting that I am working on, and to begin a new piece … possibly a large one.  I don’t know what will happen next, only that I am starting to miss my easel and am itching to get back to moving paint around.
