I spent this past week diligently planning a retreat, called Art and Spirit. I scoured the internet for cool art project ideas, I scoured the bible for good scripture ideas, and I joyfully wrote up a schedule of how this art-full and spirit-filled weekend would unfold. I had 3 art projects lined up, and lectio divina readings....I had this whole thing under control.
And then God woke me up.
So, before I got out of bed, we had the following conversation:
God: Nice start on the retreat plan.
Me: Start? Well, I mean...I've got...stuff...ummm.
Me: Re-frame? What are you talking about? Re-frame what? ...OH! The art... A frame! Duh. And the prayers? Of course. Re-frame everything. What a great idea, God!
God: Of course it's a great idea. I thought of it.
I love it when this happens. Of course, not that I have to start over, but at least now I have a solid idea of where it's supposed to go.
Yep, that's a great idea!
