I love Saturday mornings. They are usually always laid back and relaxing. This morning I had breakfast with my friend Laura (check out her new blog, www.sewlaura.blogspot.com) and we had a great time talking about our dreams and where we want to be one day. We always end up talking about...staying at home and taking care of our husbands and homes. So we brought our notebooks and talked about our creative ideas to make money and stay at home. It's a start, right?
It was a lovely time with a good friend. I'm thankful for friends who believe in me, who believe in themselves and the gifts that God has given them. We really can be everything we were created to be. I was encouraged this morning. I can pursue my dreams. I'm tired of sitting back and watching everyone else so what I have in my heart to do. I want to be fulfilled in every area of my life.
My hope and dream is to someday have my own art studio. One side will be a gallery to sell art and the other side will be a classroom to teach and have fun painting and creating things. I want to teach young children how to draw or paint because it might change their lives forever. They might find what they are passionate about in one of my classes and if not, hopefully they had fun!
I want my gallery to be filled with art pieces painted by me and also donated by other artists who want to give towards missions. We could have one organization or family that we would give proceeds to help them. Missions has always been in my heart, a major passion of mine but I didn't feel like I was going to be a full-time missionary. This is a way to give to others.
I am excited about this new journey or really this old journey I'm on. I'm thankful that God gives us something new along the road. I know this is kind of a random post but that's me :) I hope whoever reads this has a wonderful day!!!
