The Perfect Quote

Every once in a while you come across a quote that really resonates with who you are.  Recently I found two.

"Women need real moments of solitude and self-reflection to balance out how much of ourselves we give away." ~ Barbara de Angelis

The more I embrace solitude and self-reflection through prayer, Scripture meditation, Bible study, journaling and art, the more I find my energy restored. The hard part is making regular time for these activities. But the more successful I am at intentionally making time for them, the better I become at keeping burn-out at bay.

I put this quote in an art journal altered book, but the prompt the other day for 30 Days of List was, "Quotes getting me through the ...". So I had to use it again here.

"Keep your love of nature, for that is the true way to understand art more and more." ~Vincent Van Gogh

Nature and art. Two things I am passionate about and two things that reveal more and more of God to me. Both inspire creativity and worship.
