I am writing this morning, as I do most days, and wondering about what you, my readers, are up to.
With that in mind, I thought I'd share a little of what I am working on today. Keep in mind, this is a rough draft, a part of one of the books I plan to publish this year. It's not been swiped at by the red pen, yet.
Madison had finally adjusted her sleep schedule so she was up earlier in the day. She was thrilled to use her new-found free time to work on the paintings she was planning to display at the hotel, but that was more like playing, a hobby. What gave her the most pleasure was stripping old paint and stain from pieces of discarded furniture and giving them new life. She drew her brows together as she sanded layers of grime and old stain from the top of a corner table. She imagined how the walnut stain followed by varnish would make the piece perfect. If only it was this easy to get rid of the past layers of ick in my life, she thought. Her Saturday conversation with Victoria came to mind as she worked. Something about what Victoria said, how God was already working in Madison’s life, struck her as odd. The beautiful wood grain of the table appeared as she sanded, and she felt an artistic thrill, a sense of new life.
What are you up to today?
Let me know if there is anything you would like me to share here!
Blessings and love,
