6"x6" Acrylic on Cradled Wood
I always thought that retirement would bring solitude and lots of days sitting in the swing with my hubby. I left the classroom of 29 years of chaos, thinking that swinging would be nice. Can I just say that swinging now has a whole new meaning? It's meant swinging doors, a house full of loved ones, sometimes swinging from the rafters, and a few of those dreamed about swinging times. We've felt pain and emotional healing to be followed by love, and then more pain. Thank God for Jesus! I don't know how people do it without Jesus! I keep hearing the song, "Through it all, through it all...my eyes are on you (Jesus)....Wow. He brings joy in the morning, doesn't He? He brings healing to the broken, and makes all things new. I've discovered that life can really throw you some punches, but if your feet are on solid ground, you can find peace in little places among the chaos. Eventually, it will all even out, and be okay. What about you? Are you in one of those storms of life? Do you have your eyes on Jesus? He is the only way.
By the way...my hubby just hung a new swing for me out in the back yard! Those swinging days are coming!
