This piece is one of those that has a deep meaning. It was painted and finished during a phone call. Her heart in process and my heart listening. Many years of mentoring young women through church and through Young Life. Many years of listening and asking questions prepared my heart to do the same with those closest to my heart.
We are in a time when gathering as a community is riddled with fear of getting sick. And we are no longer sitting at our kitchen tables with our neighbors, our kids’ mom or dad friends, or afterschool playdates. We are not outward processing with a real human like we use to. Zoom calls, phone calls, social media, emails. My heart hurts for those who just want to be hugged and told that they matter.
It does not sit well with me to hang on a phone. Why? I want to hug that person on the other end of the phone and fill that love tank full. Yet in this season and time it’s a long phone call. All while chatting away the process of our hearts I am painting. Mixing and stoking the canvas with each thought being heard and spoken.
What is the, “Call To Your Heart” today. Maybe someone needs to be heard. Make that call. Ask questions and listen. Maybe you need to be heard. Call me. Call me now. 503-686-1109. I do not have all the answers. I have my resume of life that has brought me to 56 years of pure joy as I work out my brokenness with my people. My people, my family, my partner, my friends. Maybe the “Call To Your Heart” is having a perfect stranger on the other end of the phone.
This is my art & painting blog. And YES I am promoting and selling my heart out. All of that comes to a screeching halt when there is a “Call To Your Heart”. A call that says, “hey I could use someone to talk to. I can use a listening ear. I have a process I need to work out.” Guess what I am here. Whether you purchase art or not.
In recent weeks I have had many of those long phone conversations. The reality is we ALL need to process outward to get the word and thoughts out. “Call To Your Heart” is a honor to yourself when you place yourself in the space of a loving and caring person.
