I wrote this back in 2016:
One sheep, one coin… And joy erupts. God has a lot of names in the Bible. I sometimes wonder about giving God yet another name, ‘And.’
Could the practice of using three little letters, a-n-d, turn us toward the One who holds all things together?
This ‘and concept’ has stirred inside me a long time.

“Seven Years of Wonder” is a daily look back at my creative journaling posts since 2014. I began this journey on Feb. 11, 2021, and hope to continue through Feb. 10, 2022. What am I learning about my art and faith journey thus far? What has remained constant? Where have I been changed? How is this impacting present and future art-making?
A deep bow of gratitude to you for keeping me company on this journey.

I connected with the Henri Nouen quote. We judge ourselves harshly, setting standards of achievement that are impossible to live up to.
Your comment, Jim, reminds me of something Eleanor Roosevelt (although google also gives credit to Theodore) who said, “Comparison is the thief of joy.”
