I Can Only Imagine...

Verse of the day: "With all humility & gentleness, with patience, bear with one another in love." (Ephesians 4:2). Today I would like to pack my suitcase with bikinis, sunscreen, a good fiction read, and fly to a tropical beach. Not to escape life but just to relax on the white sanded beach and float on the green water. I think that's what cold weather does to me. I feel like a clown today 'cause my pants feel too big and too short. Oh well, at least they are warm.

We did an art exercise today in draw at least 3 shapes (circle, oval, triangle, square, rectangle, etc.), shade in the areas between the lines, and give the shapes a voice. For example, "I'm a red oval and I feel..." the feelings come out of the shapes position related to the other shapes. The next step is you pick out the shape you like the best and on a clean sheet of paper draw it again amplified. This time adding any details to complete the image...then title it and discuss. It was neat to hear what drawings were created from free drawing and imagery! I love stuff like this and I know it is not always effective for group therapy but such fun to observe what creations are made.

me on the phone at work!
I'm traveling to Roanoke, VA this weekend with  my parents and family friend to sing at my friend Angela's mom's memorial service. I'm singing the song "I Can Only Imagine." As I've been practicing the song in the car the words have reminded me once life in light of eternity. "I can only imagine what it will be like when I walk by your side...I can only imagine when the day comes and I find myself standing in the sun. Surrounded by your glory what will my heart feel? Will I dance for you Jesus or in awe of you be still? Will I stand in your presence, to my knees will I fall? Will I sing hallelujah will I be able to speak at all? I can only imagine!" Hope your Friday is blessed and restful for you!
