The Art of Life
Photobucket I'm so glad you're here! "The Art of Life" is where I share my journey as an artist & Momma. It's a place where I hope to encourage other women that they are artists too. In this small little space I seek to share, document, and be reminded of God's wonderful grace, all around us. ....And I would be so happy to have you journey alongside me! So grab a cup of coffee and linger for a while. I hope you leave feeling refreshed. Photobucket

When I Let it Go.....

~~There's a song by a group called "Sierra" and the words have been stuck in my head for years. It's strange how some songs can do that.
Many mornings I've woke up with the words running through my mind.
For a long time I thought that it was there because of the catchy tune (or maybe the fact that my husband and I listened to the album quite a lot when we were expecting our own "Sierra.")
Only now, years later, are they truly sinking in deep.

~~My nature is to want control. I like life to be predictable, manageable,
held tight in the palm of my hand.

~~For so long I fought the idea of letting go.
Doesn't letting go mean giving up?
Giving up our hopes?
Giving up our dreams?

 ~~Oh, but now I see!
When our palms are closed tight we can't receive the numerous blessings our Loving God wants to give.
And they are everywhere!
He takes our small little dreams and makes them bigger. Opens our eyes wider.
Fills with grace.

"I meditate on all your works and consider what Your hands have done.
I spread out my hands to You;
My soul thirsts for you like a parched land." Ps 143:5-6

Thank You Lord, for Grace.

(If you would like to listen to the song, you can hear it here: "Let it Go."

Thanks Kasie,
I love your blog - I am also an artist and a writer, but these past 5years I have been doing my Masters in Christian Studies, between that and family, church life and all - not much time to create. Art blogs have kept me breathing, journaling, designing... I need to get back to my own neglected blog. I am so encouraged by your post and all the links you provide! Thanks for encourage my soul!
