Praying in Color



I just started reading Praying in Color. You know what surprised me? I love it. I love how it's written, and the design of the book. Mostly, though, I am finding I love praying in color. It focuses me, and combines joy with prayer.

"When I draw as a way to enter prayer, I get to delight in my prayer and to feel God's delight that I am making an effort to pray. Prayer can be the heavy labor of my heart and mind where I am the foreman of a job site. Or prayer can be my joy and freedom, the place where I get to play in the presence of my Creator; where I get a taste of the 'glorious liberty of being a child of God.'" ~Sybil MacBeth

Hi Anne! I have to say, I love your blog! It's so sincere and awe-inspiring. I love the connectedness (is that a word?) you see in the small things every day. I'm a big believer in the small things. They always seem to matter most. Can't wait to read more! HUGS!
