An Old Love.

Lately, I have been aching to reunite with an old love.

Especially while I am trapped indoors on cold winter days, I long to curl up next to a fire with a hot cup of tea and rekindle an old flame:

aren't they enticing?

But the excuses are many. The time is short. The interference is at an all time high.
and I miss this quiet love that has been mine since I was 8.

To rekindle this love has been on my list of New Year's Resolutions for 5 years now. And I have picked up my brushes a time or two... But not nearly enough..........

I miss this old love. It is a part of me. Maybe this year........

9 friends had a thing or two to say...:

Oh how wonderful to have such a talent! Use it girl! You're obviously very artistic in nature. That comes through in everything I see on your posts. Pick up those brushes!

i DID know that you were that talented and i will say it again, God gave you a gift my friend. I need to send you the link to my friend Deann's blog. She started a ministry at our church that encourages you to use your God given creative gifts as an act of worship AND a way of bringing yourself closer to him. Perhaps you need to look at it that way and it will be able to help shuffle the priorities...not easy done I know, but perhaps HE is calling you to do it more than just a desire you think YOU have within you. Just a thought:)
