October 21, 2017: “Today brought a day of healing, moment by moment, be-ing in Christ. I went to my studio, plugged in my twinkle lights (which somehow always make my heart glow), and made art.
Abiding… that’s what I was doing today. My safe place was not my studio. It wasn’t even in my art-making or the twinkle lights. It was behind the door, through the keyhole, inside the Holy of Holies where Christ dwells in me.
And how exhilarating to know that even when my mind, heart, and soul are not abiding, my spirit, the Holy of Holies in me, is always abiding because Jesus is there, always there. But oh, how painful life can be when I don’t focus on His face, be in that place where Christ dwells, always calling me to just be… abide.
