    You have a talent in drawing people into your conversation and paintings. Your writings are thought provoking and inspiring, hence I signed up for one of your online courses, Dream. Love. Paint. and so far even though it seems to be taking me more time to get started, I am hanging on to every post, video, inspiration from other students to find that nudge for me to get started. My dream has always involved art, loved it as a child when I won my first finger painting ribbon in first grade! When it came time to choose my career, I was torn between the medical field and art. I chose nursing as college was close to home and have been a nurse now for 23 years. Still inside, I LOVE art and want to continue to pursue my passion! My dream out loud is to pursue art as passionately as my time allows (in between continuing education in nursing and full time work) to see where the journey takes me. I already feel blessed to have started this painting journey!ReplyCancel

    Thank you for the beautiful and helpful journal entry for today! One dream that is in the forefront at this moment is to learn the basics of watercolor. I feel like I’m spinning my wheels a bit as I am trying to learn on my own. I will try to relax and enjoy the spin!ReplyCancel

    While my dream/prayer has isn’t about painting, it would definitely affect my painting, and it is a return to good health. So, I’m saying it out loud and putting it here in black and white, with hope it will come to be. I’m also looking forward to your new surprise, Dreama.ReplyCancel

    Dear Dreama,
    What a beautiful name Dreama♡ One meaning is “joyful music” and it seems perfect to describe your paintings. They are so lively that you can almost hear joyful music!
    My given name is JoEllen. I have decided to use that name to sign my future paintings. My dream is to become a happy painter developing my basic knowledge into something inspiring. I am crazy for your upcoming class in September♡
    I have been anticipating your class for months. My husband has built me a “She Shed” just for me to realize my dream to paint. I have sold my wedding dress lately to get the money for the class. I have set up my easel and paints in my new “HAPPY PLACE” near a window that overlooks a marina.
    I am so excited about your class and pray I will be chosen as one of your students. Your paintings and writings move me♡

Come drink from my well.

It is full at the moment.

Next year may bring rains, it may be dry—we share the abundance we have as we have it and no one goes without.

    Mom has come to stay with us. She is fond of telling everyone I told her she couldn’t stay by herself anymore. We are in the throws of making space safe for her and a place to sleep for us in our 1100 sq ft home. My art corner seems to be disappearing and my days are in sheet rock mudding activities when I get a chance. My calling seems to be floating somewhere in a cloud.

    It was so uplifting to read your blog this morning. Always timely. I guess calling changes. I pray God fills me with joy and the opportunity to serve him and be creative during this period of my life. Thanks ever so much.

    Thank you for the quiet contemplation.ReplyCancel

    BTW – How is ED?ReplyCancel

  • rejane - July 29, 2017 - 12:12 pm

    Oh, dear Dreama,
    I have so many other “things” calling me! And they are not just “calling”. They are screaming!
    This rat race is taking the best of me… It’s the call of duty, it’s our health that needs attention, all these doctor’s appointments… It’s all the implications from our job, the trips, and I could go on and on.
    My poor page on facebook has been outdated for a few months now. I haven’t painted anything else, and I can’t do water color, … yet. Oh, well. Part of life, even though may times my desire is to say, ‘Stop the world! I want to paint!’
    (And while writing this, the smoke alarm went off — I let the spaghetti burn!)ReplyCancel

    • Julie - August 8, 2017 - 11:00 am

      I love this! “Stop the World! I want to paint!” Just know that many of us out here are often too busy also to follow our passion but our calling right now might just be that caregiver role or the pot of spaghetti or even that desk job that pays the bills.ReplyCancel

    Your reflection is appreciated. The empty bottle of wine even more so because it means, I hope, you enjoyed the rosé in a beautiful setting. hahaReplyCancel

  • Cynthia Jennings - July 29, 2017 - 7:16 am

    I love this post on answering to our own calling! It is serendipitous that I should open your email and read it this morning. I am reading The Alchemist right now and have been pondering the topic. This book is wonderful way to explore realising your dreams and the meanings and directions of our lives. Thank you for saying that there is no need to feel guilty about not following other people’s callings. That makes so much sense, but I never thought it that way.ReplyCancel

I had so much pleasure in painting this Tuscan scene.
The painting was left behind.

The experience was not.

The pleasure is in the moment, in the painting, in the journey.
“It is good to have an end to journey toward;  but it is the journey that matters, in the end”
