My girl asked me to paint a peacock. I said, “Yes!”. Then I painted this. She hugged me and said I was so good. I hugged her back. I was filled with joy and so was she. We hung it on her wall under a picture she painted. Then we hung another piece of her artwork next to them. We agreed that she had a little gallery of a wall. I assured her that if she didn’t like it, she could be honest with me. She assured me that she would tell me the truth. That was enough for me. My children are my art critics and if they like what I’ve created, I am pleased. My little peacock fails in comparison to the real deal, but this whole experience was filled with the real deal of Jesus, of joy, of peace, and of being human. Bless you with using your gifts to bless those around you and letting others bless you.
In Christ Alone,
