I still plan on sharing more photos from my parents' visit here from Africa (via South Korea), but not today.
You see, this past weekend, the art pastor at our church preached an incredible sermon on the value and importance of art, of the creative process, of producing works of excellence ... because our God is a Creator God. He quoted from C.S. Lewis, showed a clip from Pixar's "Up," referenced composers and painters who are world-renown. I was brought to tears twice, and although I am quite the weeper, I don't often cry in church during the sermon. In fact, I don't remember tearing up in church much at all in the past six years.
If you have a half hour or so to spare, please go and have a listen. It will be worth your time.
That said, I wanted to share the following photos with you, taken a little over a month ago. I was inspired by my college roommate, who does gracious living amazingly well, especially with two little boys.
|A little hesitant at first, because this was the first time he has painted anywhere other than at the table.|
|Those are several sheets of packing paper (from our move to Texas), taped together. :)|
|Getting into the spirit of things...|
|The paper has been forgotten.|
|Woohoo! What fun!|
|Cleaning up after himself, singing, "Keen up, keen up..."|
