It has been way too long since I’ve posted, but that is only because I have not prioritized the gift God has given me.
The last few years have been quite a whirlwind. I was broken and dismantled. Through recovery, Ive begun to reassemble into the man God has always wanted me to be. A very trying time of my life and because of that, I have honestly been afraid to draw. I think this is because I associate drawing with who I used to be, and that scares me. I have to remember though that God gave me a talent and if I don’t use it, it’s somewhat disrespecting Him.
My good friend Chris in my recovery group has been staying on me about drawing. He kept alluding to a Celtic cross or something similar. It took me a few weeks but about a week ago, I felt it was time. I drew this “Triquetra” because it historically represents the Holy Trinity. I handed it to him as a gift and he was really surprised. He and the rest of my recovery group told me it looked like it was printed. Chris had no idea I would gift him with that and it was a cool moment.
Drawing it, I felt that sense of losing time again, in a good way. This was the moment I needed to spark me back to drawing. I don’t know what is to come next, but I am grateful to feel the itch to draw again. I am becoming the better and more while me.
