Doodle House-“Live Where You Live”

live where you live

I’m learning how to “doodle” in Stephanie Ackerman’s class “A Whole New Doodle.” This is a piece I completed for the class. The main thing I have learned is that I am not nearly as good at “coloring” as I was when I was a little girl! (Or maybe I judge my own work in a different light now…)

I had this art assignment on my mind when I read yesterday’s devotional from Proverbs31.org, written by one of my favorite authors, Suzie Eller. As is usually the case when I read these daily emails, it seemed it was written for me, or at least for me to read that day. The theme of the devotional was that we should LIVE where we are, rather than always waiting for the “next” thing (the next word from God, the next direction, the next move, for example). I decided I would make the theme of the inspirational piece the theme of my doodled home piece.

"I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances." Philippians 4:11 (NIV)
