Greetings to you all. I’ve been out of the loop from the WP world for quite a while. So much change in life has been going on these days…it’s astounding.
I recently updated my About Me page and thought I would include a portion of the update in this post. In case you were wondering what’s been going on on my side of the world these days… So much change is all I can to say. Coming from a person who likes change (but with structure and stability along with it)… lately there has been a lot of change in my life and it has been very difficult going through it.
Well, I’m still currently living in the Midwest. The weather is beautiful these days. Much rain has poured down this Spring which has allowed a lot of the greens and foliage to blossom beautifully. I was away in California for a what seemed like a long visit but being back to my home state was so refreshing. They’re having a really serious drought out there. I mean, it is really bad. With water restrictions and all. I got to play around with the pups and hens and everyone is doing okay. There were a lot of events going on while I was there- weddings, birthdays, graduations, and other ceremonies. Being back in California felt so good. I missed the California feel, the city life, the California county life. Yes, I say California country life because the country life there is so much more different than the country life in the rural mid-West. Lets just say, the cowboys in California like huevos rancheros for breakfast just as much as they like biscuits and gravy. And their idea of going on vacation is going to Puerto Vallarta Mexico. They’re just more spontaneous and outgoing in that way for some reason. But I do have to say though I was glad to stay in the West Coast for a while and lavish under that California sun with my California [peeps] ;), I missed Missouri.. It now has a part of me, to such an extent I can’t describe. Well, Sometimes I see this blog as a diary, a journal, but I know it’s not. It’s almost too easy to expose too much…so for yours sake, and mine, I’ll just keep at it that.:)
This is what I’ve been up to lately:
I travelled three days on train this week and these are some pics…gliding by beautiful New Mexico and Colorado.
Though life doesn’t always turn out like we plan, all we can try to do is make the best of it. I wasn’t happy travelling through a train for three days, but I focused on what was positive about it. The gorgeous views.
Grace, blessings and peace y’all! ;)
Here is my ABOUT page update, I really have been enjoying the song in that video below (it’s from HIllsong and was such a blessing to me & one song I tend to keep on replay):
Below is my old About Me page that I had written when I first created this blog. I thought it was time to update considering so many years have past since then, and I am no longer an art student, nor am I living in California. Though so many things have changed in my life (it really is completely different), one thing has not changed, and that is that I’m still a faithful and firm believer in the Lord Jesus Christ.
I haven’t blogged in quiet a while or as much as I used to. Life changed courses for me and I found myself going through a life process that I have never experienced before. It’s amazing how life can change course and completely change ones life around. I guess these are called “life experiences”. Well, I still like the hobbies and crafts that I’ve always have. Like sewing, embroidering, baking, nature walks, hikes, traveling, exploring, and so on. I think art will always be part of who I am. I like diversity and experiencing different cultures, and I embrace change just so long as it’s positive change. Positive change to me are contributions in helping and supporting efforts to improve our natural environments, such as: rain forests, protected national parks, and wild life habitats…reducing pollutions in our environment, World peace, Humanitarian efforts, supporting the Organic community (farmers, growers, producers suppliers), and supporting and standing with the Christian community. All these things are so meaningful to me and they’re what make my world complete- Christ, nature, people, culture, the arts, reaching out and helping others. Living a balanced and full life is such a blessing, but it’s sometimes so difficult to maintain without getting off track once in a while. I have learned that regardless of what life brings around- Just do what you can to be happy. Sit out under the wide open sky…under the stars at night, caress the petals of a flower and smell it, and admire its beauty. Sit under a tree and enjoy its shade while feeling the breeze flow through your hair, upon your skin. Let your fingers play with the water in the river, and appreciate the rain for it makes our world green. The simple things, I feel, are the most special.
Well, that’s all about I can write for now. I should mention that I am no longer living in California but in the Mid West, and I’ll try to write and post and stay in touch with you all as often as I can. (The song below is just something I thought I’d share. To open up a little…life has been a storm lately. I have been going through a process of learning to forgive (like the bible mentions forgiving even the vilest of offenders). And healing from things that I’ve gone through have been a bit difficult, but I know it’s possible with the grace of God. I’ve taken many long drives down quiet calm peaceful country roads recently just to get a way and clear my mind…and several times I found myself tuning into this song…it really describes my experience. Hope you all enjoy.
Peace & take care
