I am also digging working with the wonderful group of women at the Thursday afternoon ceramics class at the First Baptist Church. We spend 3-4 hours per week exploring our creative muse and comforting one another with fellowship, encouragement and spiritual support. This is another reconnection for me to a life long past.
My path in life has meandered here and there, but at my core my only desire has been to live life in love and peace within a partnership of love. I have always wanted to have my home be a place of love and beauty with creativity at the center. We are getting there together while also freely expressing our independent creativity. So the house is full of art projects under construction and the aroma of fresh homemade meals simmering on the stove blended with the scent of oil paint and cinnamon potpouri in an autumn colored leaf shaped bowl.
I have long searched for a home, and now have one. It isn’t what I always dreamed, but it ticks off all the boxes anyway. I am content with my life here and now. I know there are past trials still to overcome and who knows what future is awaiting us, but here and now I have serenity.
