Crayon Devotions

During my sabbatical I took my sketchbook and eight crayons with me everywhere. (It is amazing what you can do with eight crayons.)

And, for whatever reason I chose to draw my 'crayon devotions' in 3 x 3" squares.

This was the first one. Happy blogged about the concept of Vacare Deo--making room for God--which was a phrase I thought about a lot this week.

In fact, my sketchbook contains drawings for each of the major thoughts of the week. (And a random drawing of Nancy-the-Insightful at Bic's and a sketch I did while waiting in the lobby of the tire shop listening to Coldplay.)

I wish I could say I ended the week with total clarity, but I didn't. I do have better understanding of "why my leaves are falling off" and some rough ideas of what could possibly change that.

Mostly, I ended my time with an expectant heart and a little more Vacare Deo. And I suspect that's enough.

SUCH a cool idea! I want to see the whole thing! I'm glad you're my personal BLOGger because this is exactly what I'd like to do if I had crayons...and could draw recognizable images...

You are the second person this week who has talked about using drawing for devotional/journal.
