I’m still flying high from the Art and Faith exhibit opening on Sunday. The day thrilled me, surprised me, taught me Godly lessons, and reminded me that love conquers all.
I wish I could tell you that I am the type of person that doesn’t carry gobs of worry with her like a security blanket, but we all have things to work on and this is (just one of) mine. Not just worry, but during events like this those years and years of being told I was not good enough, slapped, and critized as a toddler and child all manifest on days like this. They show their ugly faces and there are times when I slip and believe their lies.
Sunday morning was like that. I had the panic of what if no one comes, what if no one buys anything, what if everyone hates the art, what if people are rude or mean….
What if what if what if….
So I prayed and prayed and got through it, and as the opening started I was overwhelmed with the people there and grateful for the buyers and annoyed with myself for slipping into negative thinking. And then, I prayed through all that as well.
That’s always the answer, you know. No matter the issue or question.
For those of you who couldn’t make it, here’s a quick video and some pictures from the day.
And some pics…
