The Spirituality of Painting
This week of painting has been therapeutic for me. Itâ€™s given me a physical way to work out my emotions and inner stresses, and the house looks a whole lot better too.
I tend to carry emotional stresses in my body a bit to much, its just how Iâ€™m made. So this week of physical workouts has been great for me. Itâ€™s actually one of the parts of pastoral work that I donâ€™t like â€“ that itâ€™s not very physical. I appreciate working hard, even physically, when things get accomplished. I donâ€™t appreciate it when itâ€™s just for exercises sake.
And the painting has given me lots of time to pray, so I have been praying, for many of you, and our kids, and our future. Itâ€™s been good that way, really nice.
But tonight is the first time Iâ€™ve seen a computer all week, so Iâ€™ve been trying to catch up on some emails.
I think I have to go put the curtains back up in our bed room, so we can get to bed. Iâ€™m tired.
