A way to survive the empty nest and a "cracked "relationship with a fun daily challenge of new experiences, reflections, sources, and some biblical guidance. I hope this blog which offers a fun journey to survive by trying something new, either vicariously or by doing, will result in a survival tool kit to replace the past familiar doing, giving, and/or incorporating the interest of your child or your long gone love interest, with some new self interest(s).
It was a night to “express
myself” as EverythingI Need to Know I Learned
From a Little Golden Book recommends. I don’t have much drawing or painting ability.
The stick man has always been my friend,
nevertheless, I gave it a try at a “"Paint Nite Party"at a local restaurant.
This was a fun way to try to paint and more importantly a good
reason to get together with my friend from my college days. My friend and I must think alike since we did note
deviate much from the instructors example. If fact, we now both have the “same
picture” hanging in our home. I guess we are left sided brain thinking girls.
It was interesting to witness the transformation and the creativity of the other painters. I am no Picasso but I was surprised how well the picture turned out. We decided to try it again but to have the wine
before we start next time.
Don't copy the behavior and customs of the word, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will know what God wants you to do, and you will know how good and pleasing and perfect his will really is. (Roman 12:2)
