Yesterday afternoon I watched the movie “The Science of Sleep” (which is such a great movie I might add), and was inspired by so many things in the movie. Immediately after watching it I got this image stuck in my head, and despite having other ideas for my self-portrait this week, this image just would not go away. It was the most vivid idea for a picture I have ever had, and the most persistent. And it turned out almost exactly how it was in my head.
And, I left the clouds hanging above my bed, it is wonderful.
Pixel had to come to my house today because of maintenance on Elliot’s apartment. At Elliot’s he doesn’t have a place to just sit and look out the window, and so a good chunk of the day was spent on my bed, or on the top of the couch watching outside.
I have decided, as of tonight, that I am going to start back up my prayer journal. I used to be so good about writing in it every night, but then I got busy I guess, and just forgot to write in it. I have been stressing out a lot lately, and I realized tonight that I need to give up those worries to God. He controls everything, and he will provide for me, so I shouldn’t be stressing and worrying. Now I know that starting back up regular, formal prayer is not going to magically take away my worry, but it is a step, which is what I need to do. I need to begin to trust God in every aspect of my life, and in order to do that I need to start voicing my worries to him.
