This past week has been a hectic one -again! At least my hubby is on the mend and back to work. At school we are busily preparing for our Christmas concert - singing 4 multicultural songs about light and peace.
I am trying to finish Christmas cards - got out half of them today. The past few weeks put my agenda for Christmas way out of whack. Oh well - at least the rest of the cards should be mailed by Christmas!
I haven't even started my baking yet - which in some ways is good as I would probably have been eating too many by now.
Art this past week was limited to viewing rather than actually doing.
I won 2 giveaways this past week for which I am extremely grateful and excited.
1. The book "The 12 Secrets of Highly Successful Women" by Gail McMeekin", a giveaway hosted by Jamie Ridler.
I loved Gail's first book and I know I will love this one. A big Thanks to Jamie and Gail!
2. A planner pad from Glenda Myles, of "Myles Ahead", who is hosting a wonderful "planning for 2012" workshop over 4 weeks. I am loving it!
The Artist's Way
Today is the last check-in. We have now finished the book, with this last chapter. Chapter 12 is very encouraging.
Several quotes really struck me:
"Creativity requires faith."
"Each of us has an inner dream that we can unfold if we will just have the courage to admit it. And the faith to trust our own admissions."
"Our truest dreams for ourselves is always God's will for us."
"There is a path for each of us. When we are on the right path, we have a surefootedness."
I love the idea of the God Jar and placing all our doubts, fears, worries into it. Then we can truthfully say - "God's got it".
I now will have to reread the book and complete many of the tasks I skimmed over. This will be a 2012 task. I also intend to do a much better job of the morning papers as I reread this book.
It has been a very worthwhile journey through the book with such a supportive group of people. Thank you to all of them who have made this a wonderful journey of discovery.
