I enjoy the sculpting involved with
writing. Sometimes, adding to it. Normally, my posts don't consume my time. It worked out that way with that post. And I had lots of fun.
There was a Renaissance artist who did the same thing. One painting he worked on his entire life. For more than thirty years. He took with him when he worked in other countries. He slept with it. He enjoyed the process---constantly tinkering with this work painted on wood. We know it as the "Mona Lisa."
No way am I in Leonardo's league. Heck no. But if he could re-work on a project, and he was as gifted as he was, I figured I could too, since I am hugely less gifted. The joy of working on a project, though, was mine the past five days.
1. I am balancing my life. It allows me to hear God's voice, while in the midst of a busy schedule.
2. I am living by priorities, not letting the urgent to overrule the important. I like the order it provides and the increasing effectiveness of my efforts.
3. I met with friends tonight, the first time in several weeks, as I had been following my local baseball team for several weeks. It won the championship, the World Series, last Wednesday.
4. I am thankful for exercising discipline. A vision without execution is a delusion.
How About You?
What are your three gratitudes for today? I'd love hearing from you.
