Well, the wire wrapping class was a hoot! I learned an interesting technique for working with beads and wire, and had a couple of fun hours!
Isn’t it great how something like that – going to a class, learning something new – will brighten your perspective? The Lord’s been impressing on me that I need to learn to wait for Him… and in that waiting, He’s giving me opportunities to learn, to explore, and to grow.
Miriam put it into a good picture for me yesterday at my appointment – instead of wandering around, saying “what should I do now?”, a better thought is, “what do I want to do now?” My calling hasn’t changed – to glorify God by everything I do, even though the structure of how I do that has changed. Instead of focusing on one thing – His Kids Radio, I can now focus on many things – Toonz, doing storytelling and magic, working on music, and even creating jewelry, and still follow my calling – to follow Christ, to learn more of Him, and to glorify God with my life.
I said in an earlier post that I felt like I was in my calling, and God hung up on me. No – He just has transfered me to another extension. Now I have to settle in to my new place, and get a feel for it.
Now, as part of my “calling,” I hear the dishes calling. The faster I get my chores done, the faster I can sit down at the jewelry desk and play with some of the stuff I learned today. (And the closer I get to making Hannah’s birthday present… 😀 )
