A Softer Touch

As You Wish.

I continue to feel a little quieter inside,

not as rushed.

What a gift this is,

and I am soaking it up.

These two paintings,

part of

my newfound love

of studying women in prayer

as my practice at the easel,

come from this place I rest in.

They have shown me

how peaceful it is inside 

when I allow my own pace

to be a little slower than the rest of the world,

just like it wants to.

They have breathed into my creative heart

the gifts of knowing, intimately,

a softer touch.
