(Above) Horse studies from the sketchbook of Jacqueline Perry, 2012
One afternoon in June, my friend and I went to the stables at Glendorn to sketch horses. The horses moved every few seconds to keep the bugs off; at least they looked uncomfortable to me–swishing their tails, shaking their heads, shifting their great weight from side to side, trading positions every few minutes. They appeared ‘antsy’, but maybe it was just me.
Highs and Lows: My low today was being a poor listener; I felt ‘antsy’. I interupted a colleague a few too many times and talked more than was helpful. My high came near the end of the day, while listening to a friend share some awesome stories of when she was growing up.
Prayer: Thank you, God, for delighting my ears through the melody of your work.*
When did you hear God’s awesome melody today?
