Go ahead....TALK TO JESUS!!!!
Living in our pine forest doesn't afford itself to much direct sunshine....except on the North side of the house right off the garage! My little spot at 9A isn't much but it does the job!!! I got my 30iu of VitD and reset my circadian clock!
As an artist, my soul (mind) hears, sees, feels things most miss out on. I notice all the detail in the tiniest flower or in the fluff of the clouds!!! Do you see it???
I started a painting yesterday and wasn't sure where it was going....sometimes one of my favorite kind. I wet the entire paper (ARCHES) and started dropping color. I kept my color ways to 4 colors; yellow, blue, green, pink.
I dropped wet in wet and I love the bloom created!
I didn't want to overwork it. After about an hour I felt like it was finished. Of course nothing is reflected the same in a photograph...especially an Android phone photo! Oh well. I'm really the only one who has to hear, feel, see and accept what He creates through me! I always paint to some kind of worship music whether soaking or loud fall on my face worship. Tears enhance a painting!
This song brings me to tears. I hope to be that Nana! I didn't have anyone in my life who spoke Jesus to me. He saved me. I love Him. He loves me!!!
Go ahead....TALK TO JESUS!!!!
Friends and Family ask us, "So what's your normal routine look like now that you're retired?"
We laugh and say, "It looks pretty much the same everyday. Slow & Boring! We get up whenever we wake up. We sit and drink coffee, chat, listen to worship, listen to Bible teaching...whatever moves us and we do this usually for 2 hours!"
Laughter erupts...usually from us.
Then I (Diane) make the bed, wash up any dishes laying around, throw in some laundry: sheets on Saturday, towels on Tuesday and clothes when the hamper is full or work jeans are piled in the garage. Then I go out in my studio and meet with God some more. I usually put on a teaching or some soaking music and sit quietly, in silence.
(It's a disciple I've learned...being quiet. It's only in the quiet can I hear from God. He speaks to me in pictures and usually I see something and then I hear Him. Most recently I've been transferred...yes, I was in heaven and He downloaded a song to me....I was the most surprised of all. That's for another day. Paul talks about it. John talks about it. I'm not going to worry whether you believe me or not. I'm not your judge. Since moving and actually spending much quality time with my Lord, His Spirit has taken over, His gifts have grown in me and He has been revealing truth to me at great speeds and depths. I believe Ephesians 1:17-18 "...that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you...He STILL speaks to man or woman! )
My diet for the past 1.5 years has been Carnivore/Ketovorish. :) It works! My brain is fueled by healthy fats. I eat 0 or a few carbs in the form or my protein bread or cheese, etc. But no refined or unrefined grains, sugars, etc. I don't consume a lot of veg anymore. They just don't like me.
Above is my faux "Chick-fil-A" sandwich. SO good. Actually just about everything I put in the form of sammie is SO good. I don't know why, but I love eating with my hands! Makes everything taste better.
I know I'm trying to catch up with so much since I've been negligent in my blog since moving to Texas. I thought writing about routines might help me squeeze it in first thing when I come out to the studio....but that's only if I've already spent time studying the Word of God.
I'll tell you about this painting in the next few days or so. I don't know if I'll post daily....as you can see we really do lead a very boring....yawn....yawn some more....life in retirement. It's JUST the way we like it!!! Life can get way too interesting.
You can look forward to my food! My healing from MS! My inspired art! My Bible studies. My journey in life here in the Piney Woods of Texas.
