While I was visiting my hometown, I was able to visit with my troll friend. She and I had two wonderful years (fourth and fifth grade) of delightful creativity, sewing little felt clothes for our troll dolls. We made bell bottom trousers, dresses with a variety of ties and bows under the trolls' silly little chins, puffy wedding gowns and SHE made tiny beds and refrigerators and stoves (she was SO clever and still is). She also created a miniature postal system and we wrote itty bitty letters to each other's troll dolls. We painted on nail polish lipstick and pierced their ears. It was great fun! My sister played with us, too. We grew too old for dolls and started worrying about teachers, grades, and boys. Dash. It was more fun playing with dolls.
Are you doing anything special for Lent? Going to Wednesday night church services? Following a special devotional? I am simply thinking about Easter. I just might sew myself an Easter outfit (a granny dress of some sort) and I'd like to put a little more thought into a special Easter meal, too.
Now that I mention it (he he he) I think I might visit the fabric/craft store today and peruse the spring "junk" that is originally marked sky high and eventually reduced by 70%. Many visits to the fabric store result in very small purchases of stickers, a skein of yarn, or a magazine. We'll see.
Today when I was sitting quietly, listening to what the Lord might reveal, the image of a bee hive came to mind. I had read about creativity and the holiness of it in the Apprenticeship With Jesus book earlier. What kind of buzzing creativity is circling your brain today?
