As mere mortals we think we can handle anything that comes our way. Then God steps in and turns our lives upside down and our mortal mind takes a sudden u-turn! Yet when mere mortals give us advice we are quick to take their wisdom at face value! When God does the same thing we are quick to question his wisdom? The reason? God looks at the big picture that is your life while mere mortal brains can only see the here and now!
Through the years when school districts look at ways to cut spending near the top of those cuts are programs for the arts. Which is backwards to say the least. While the claim is made that (while trying to make sound monetary decisions) the cutting of school art classes will make students more well rounded. Think about that for a second. It makes no sense at all. In school district budgets there are plenty of places to cut but art classes should not be one of them!
Cold weather it took you long enough to show up but you finally did and we are so glad you did. It has been so mild that the plants were getting confused. Now all of those little buggies and their larvae don’t like it but we all must make sacrifices!
I grew up in a major northern city where the arts where a very prominent part of it. My mother to her credit showed myself and my siblings all forms of art and music and then let us decide which ones we liked. Mine have always been art and symphonies with a little bit of big bands thrown in there. Well when I moved 300 miles away that all changed and those things got pushed aside for over the next 20 plus years. Then something totally unexpected happen. While walking a mall several weeks back I noticed a woman who had some of the most beautiful paintings I have ever seen. I would love to show all of you some of her work but I have not gotten her permission to do so and I would never want to disrespect her in that way. At some point I might ask her for her permission? She is so very talented anything I can do to help her I will. I don’t know why this is happening but all I know that there is something deep inside that say’s for me to trust this woman so I will.
