the glorious mundane.

"To be brutally honest, it doesn’t really matter what place you find yourself in right now. Your part is to bring Him glory-whether eating a sandwich on a lunch break, drinking coffee at 12:04 a.m. so you can stay awake to study, or watching your four-month-old take a nap."

--Francis Chan

welcome, autumn.

It's busy here. Lots of doctor appointments...but good things are happening, slowly, finally. The boy is settling into second grade just fine and making lots of new friends. The husband and I spend morning's together before he leaves for work, and then it's time for cleaning or painting or yoga or a walk. I wore my new boots today and didn't break a sweat. If I ever have a daughter, I might just name her Autumn.

The Four Elements.

I woke this morning feeling intolerant of everything, and I knew the reason was that I haven't created anything spontaneous in quite a while. I had found this wonderful board out for the trash, and knew I wanted to do something especially eye-catching with it. So here it is, "The Four Elements". My only struggle is how to finished it--clear lacquer maybe? Have any thoughts my friends?
