Art Class

I am embarrassed at how long it's been since I've blogged. But I vow to be better (yeah, right!). I really am going to be better about writing. I hope so anyway!
I have had a hard month physically, but I am doing okay. The doctor is sending me to a specialist because they want to give me IV iron, which apparently has some bad side effects. It's either that or a blood transfusion. I am perplexed as to know what to do, but the Lord always takes care of me.
This month has also been a busy one because I am taking an art class. It's called "Art Journaling," and it's amazing. I just love it. I can be creative, silly and then write on my creations. It's a little bit of scrap booking, a little bit of journaling and a little bit of painting. It's the neatest thing. I have loved the class, meeting new friends and finding something inside myself that I never knew was there. I didn't know that I was capable of making something beautiful like that. But I have learned that the mistakes you make are part of art and part of life. You can cover them with paint and write over them with ink. It's kind of like life. It's okay to fail as long as you get up and try to fix yourself.
It's neat to have an outlet to put your thoughts and time into. I'm so thankful for the class God allowed me to take, and for shaping all of the mistakes and crafting me into something beautiful for Him.
