"Coincidence is God's way of remaining anonymous." I love this quote by Albert Einstein. As I began this drawing a few months ago I acknowledged the red leaf and thought it to be parallel with my life at the time. As I grew through the emotions of my life's journey - as a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, and christian, I hit walls. Temporarily pausing to pray, meditate, and contemplate my actions and behaviors. Praying for guidance and handing it over to a Higher Power allowed my "artist's block" to crumble and conceded to the impetuous flow of water and color in this drawing. The red leaf has slowly changed from red to orange to an orange-yellow.
Admitting, amending, and accepting enables our souls to move on. We need to not only ask forgiveness but offer it as well. It is in giving that we receive.
