We say it often. Time flies. As I restart my art career after fifteen years of ministry I look back at my “first generation art” with memories of that time. My little girl enriched my life in so many ways. Now she is all grown up. In many ways her upbringing helped form the path that God laid out for me. When she started toddling around I switched from painting with oils with the need for turpentine to water based acrylics. It seemed like a safer option. When she started school we became involved with her education and helped found a private Christian school that specialized in the arts (she has some real talent on stage!). That was my start into ministry. And when that chapter closed, I again get to enjoy making new memories with my paintbrush. Time flies.
