I’ve had some time to rest following Art Walk 2012 and the launch of our new website. Today, without any sort of conscious effort, my thoughts are occupied with considering the future physical home of Art Stories Studio–to which I hope and pray will be in existence sooner than later.

Oftentimes, I find that in a world of fast transactions and hurried daily tasks, my mind gets ahead of my heart. In my head, there is a to-do list a mile long that somehow grows even as things are crossed off the list! My heart is content to not get swept away in the busy quandary. Or, quite possibly, it is afraid and a little anxious of taking risk and moving forward to the next steps of establishing this business. Either way, there is tension between my head and my heart about where I ought to be and what I should be doing, verses where I am, and what I feel like doing

Today, I’ve been doing some research on this very topic of real-estate while also chasing dreams in my vision book. In this season, I am reminded of Colossians 1:17– He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 

Both my head and my heart–however out of sync they may be– are held together and there is great truth and definite rest in this wisdom. I look forward to the day when the physical home of Art Stories Studio is a reality; the day when it exists not only on the web and in my heart, but also as a door that can be walked through.
