Since I was old enough to pick up a crayon I have LOVED all things art. And, like most young girls, this is all I wanted as a child, to grow up and make a living as an artist. Somewhere after the 8th grade, those dreams were put out of my mind. I feel like this happens to so many of us. And I propose it is the reason that Bible journaling has become so very popular.
We got our crayons back.
We were created by a creative Father, in His image. And no matter what your craft, be it paint, letter and word, or accounting, to produce something that expresses who we are and what we love is life-giving. Furthermore, the world associates certain branches of creativity as less than. The myth of the starving artist can be debunked, simply by the size of my butt. I am not starving. Granted, my art is only just now starting to pay all the bills, but my dreams were not forgotten by my Creator.
