"This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin." 1 John 1:5-7
Some days you think you should not have even gotten out of bed. Things do not go the way you thought they should. Violence interrupts life when you are least prepared for it. Somehow life consists of pain and sorrow along with the joys and love. Innocent people suffer and die. Today's violence and injustices seem immeasurable worse than in past generations.
What can you do to make changes in your story as your story will affect the story and lives of others. It has to start in our hearts and our homes. Surrounding ourselves with others that care and believe and want to make a difference just enforces the good that can grow and flourish in one community, than one county, than one state and one nation.... One Nation Under God.
When I am teaching art to my students, I encourage them to tell their story in their own way through their artwork. No one produces the same story as we are all unique. Where we are bound together is by our priorities, our compassion and our beliefs.
Do you know what yours are?
