Always In My Story

My childhood home goes on the market in 3 weeks. I have been preparing for this inevitability my entire life. The house I live in now is stuffed with paintings I have made about my wondrous birthplace. God spoke to me there: in big and little things. Something simple, like the way the wood of the banister felt beneath my fingers, can trigger a whole host of memories. The whole place is filled with triggers. I dreamed in this place, I was loved in this place and I became “me” in this place. Such a big chunk of my story began within these walls. On every single page of my story you will find God’s hand. He has always been there. You can expect to find Him inside every single one of my paintings. He is always in my story.

Tears for Dancing
Age 42

The older I get the less I think about what I can get out of this life. Bad things happen here on Earth and no one is immune. I see my parents suffering, I watch terrible things happen to my friends and I see catastrophic events that create hell on Earth. Revelation 21:4 promises that someday God will wipe every tear from our eyes and the old order of things will pass away. I’m beginning to think that this promise isn’t so far away: it’s just waiting for us at the next stop. Maybe when we die we trade our tears for dancing and enter Heaven.
