There are so many things I want to try to create. Some are completely full of artistic freedom... I have a stack of canvases sitting beside my painting table just waiting for the ideas to be put into color. I'm not running short of ideas. I have a sermon journal/sketchbook full. I also have sewing orders that need to be completed as fast as my little arthritic fingers can move.

Then I look at blogs like this one and I am inspired at Lisa Leonard's http://www.lisaleonardonline.com/blog/diy/diy-dishtowels time management skills. She has a successful jewelry business, looks adorable, and continues to create for her personal space. Plus, she has a family who she talks about and the challenges that come with her story. How does she do it? I wonder if she feels totally frazzled in real life but pulls it all together for the blog. I want to make some of these dishtowels for our new house...in my spare time.

I have one statement that is on my mind... pray without ceasing. I may not have figured out how to manage my time in the way that I want or with the discipline that is needed but I am thrilled that I am overflowing with the gift of creativity. I've held it at bay for 20 years and I know I am moving towards living the life God called me to live at this place in time... even if it is a bit chaotic, unbalanced, and messy (just like this blog post).
