I have a story to tell but not just yet. There are new things going on over here that I am dying to tell you about and have consumed my time but I want to wait just a little bit longer. Hang in there with me. I have more pages from the Windows to my World class that I want to share and hopefully will in the next few days. I got a little behind and will need to do some catching up because my next class starts April 4th and once that starts I won't be able to do both. Can it even be that March is almost over?

Art is the desire of a man to express himself,
to record the reactions of his personality
to the world he lives in.
I myself no longer live, but Christ lives in me.
So I live my life in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God,
who loved me and gave himself for me.

Other than a few pencil marks that I added after snapping a photo, I think this one is done.
With the hunt for a house on the brain there are also lessons to be learned. Letting go of expectations. Expectations of how fast this process should take has been a hard one. I really wanted to pull up to the fast food line, order my house, and walk away with keys and new possibilities. Instead, there has been a lot of waiting, not knowing what is going on, disappointment, hoping, more waiting, more disappointment, prayer, tears and then realizing that I can't control this process and I need to let go and let God prepare the way in His will and His way. And that is on a daily basis. So many emotions flying around learning to wait and learning to let go and learning to enjoy life in the waiting not just enduring life. I love the song by Audrey Assad, "Everything is Yours".
When all the world is blossoming
When everything around is bursting into life
And I don't have to strain to hear the beat of Your heart
When all the world is under fire
and the skies are threatening to thunder and rain
And I am overcome by fears that I can't see
If everything is Yours
Everything is Yours
If everything is Yours
I'm letting it go
No it was never mine to hold
No, never mine
Maybe it will eventually sink in and I won't have to remind myself to let go so often. The blessings in all of it are the friends who rally around and pray and share the load and dream with me and the constant hand of the Lord that holds mine and tells me He is there. What a journey this is and will be.
