Ah, I know this blog has been neglected, and I’ve been feeling bad for keeping it on the backburner. But I’ve discovered that it’s tough work keeping up with posts when I’m trying to juggle a full-time job with serving in two church ministries, honing my artistic/musical skills and being present in my rather active social life. Anyway, artists go through harvest/fallow cycles and now I happen to be readying the ground, not so much harvesting the fruits of my labour (that’s what I like to tell myself, but it’s also true!)
The good news: I’m going to continue keeping this space up. I’m not sure who reads this, but props to my friends who do; I’m glad you enjoy reading my random and sporadic posts. The even better news: I’m going to start taking my artistic portfolio seriously, and will be converting this site into a gallery of my creative progress.
If you were wondering, the blog/article aspect of this site will still be there, but as a separate section altogether. The focus of both this site and my own leisure time will be to get a working portfolio/gallery of creative projects I’ve been working on. Ha, now that I’ve said it, no backsies for me! Please hold me to my word and continue asking me about my progress so that the procrastinator in me will stop self-sabotaging and get down to work with some diligence.
With this change, I’ll also be recategorising articles and pages. I may even be unpublishing some more personal ones if they don’t suit the tone of my upcoming site (gasp!) We shall see how this goes. In the meantime, you can follow me on social media (I’m @antelune on Instagram and I also have a FB page). I’ll be updating with new art pieces once in a while.
As I reflect on the transitions I’ve been through and am about to take, I’m just thankful that God has seen me through this season of artistic discovery and spiritual growth. It hasn’t been an easy one, but I certainly see lots of growth and I’m sure this is a firm foundation for greater things to come. Just got reminded of this verse:
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! – Ephesians 3:20-21
Amen and amen! I’m looking forward to Jesus doing infinitely more in my life than I can imagine, and for Him to continue nurturing me into the creative individual I know that I was born to be. I want to change the world with His love one person at a time, and I pray for the same for all of you, friends. Blessings and shalom!
