I am fascinated by Curtis Wiklund's project (below) to publish the drawings he makes every day of the year about his family or his environment and daily life. They are simple drawings, full of tenderness and humour...
I was having a quiet time, while working. I was thanking God for the work and life I have right now. I said, “I’m so happy right now”. I felt him grinning, like I do when I see my sons happy. There was music playing at my desk, and suddenly in my head, it was like I could see God slow dancing with me. I dance with my kids a lot, but seeing myself with God, especially slow dancing… was kind of shaking. I think he might’ve given me that image, and I couldn’t stop smiling while I was watching it. After I felt the need to scribble down some version of it. It was like nothing gave him more joy than knowing I’m having so much fun. The Drawings of Curtis Wiklund
For context, this morning I was completely alone, writing code for a website I’m working on, while listening to music. Nerdy, right?
Lesson for us all: Don’t judge yourself for what makes you happy or fills your spirit. He designed you. For me, an introverted moment this morning, solving real problems with the brain he gave me, and feeling thankful for my family in the house next door, made me feel alive. He loves watching you be exactly how he made you to be. Rest, knowing you are allowed to be you.
