But here's the thing: I am more of a visual person. Edward Hopper, one of my all time favorite artists, said it best, "If I could say it in words there would be no reason to paint."
I'm reminded even in the scope of my own family, that God has made us each unique: There are those that jump right in and speak without thinking, and on the other end of the spectrum, those who prefer to roll an idea around in her mind a bit before putting voice to it. And then there are those amazing family members who have such a way with words that it is indeed an art form.
It's pretty incredible that He put us all together. We balance each other, but we also shape each other. After eight years of competitive speech and debate, my kids have "shaped" me quite a bit.
I'm not saying that I'll abandon this blog. But I am confessing that I am much more comfortable at an easel than a computer. Put a paintbrush in my hand and I'll show you worlds I could never dream of telling you about. I am happy, thankful and blessed that God made me the way He did; although the blessing of "speaking" with you through this blog has had a zillion lovely moments. Thanks for listening!
