I am incredibly thankful today for opportunities that have recently presented themselves.
Eek! I’m so excited about what I am about to reveal!
I adore painting. I don’t think anything else gives me such satisfaction as painting. But I have NO knowledge on the subject. I’m pretty much stuck to simple little things; every once in awhile I get a grand idea of what I would like to paint, but when I try my hand at it, I become very disillusioned with the fact that what I had envisioned and what came to be were in reality two very different things. So I give it up for months; relegate the paints and the brushes to the back of the closet.
However! Just recently I received the pamphlet of Adult Education classes in the area, and one class nearly made me squeal out loud. It’s a painting class with an emphasis on constructing “large Maine landscapes”. Be Still My Heart! I think it was meant just for me! The thing is, I really think I have it in me to paint well. I’ve just needed the knowledge to be able to get there. Here’s to a new adventure…
Also, one other opportunity I’m thrilled about is this coming Valentines Day. Erick and I have always wanted to take some Ballroom dancing classes together, but nothing has ever jived with our schedules. Our church, however, is planning something grand for married couples; we are going to be treated to a meal, and then afterward will receive not only ballroom dancing lessons, but will be able to do some fun group dancing too (square dancing, maybe? wouldn’t that be a hoot!?)
How fun to be able to tackle two dreams on my to-do list!
