Welcome

palm Sunday 2016Welcome to Lectionary doodles. Here you will find a weekly adult colouring in item that reflects on the lectionary for the week. My hope that you might stumble on something new about the Christian faith story you didn’t notice before, grow a little in your own faith, gain a deeper connection with God and have fun while you are doing it or at least relax a little or concentrate a bit better when someone else is talking!

This is hugely new to me.. I don’t consider myself an artist but started the drawings as a Lenten practice for myself and shared them with my congregation, people seem to find them helpful and I have been encouraged to share them on a wider more accessible format. Some weeks I am amazed at what I can do other weeks I feel like my 8 year old could do much better! But I will share them with you as gifts, may they help you connect deeply with the Ultimate creative One, God.

So here goes.

I thought what I might do is put up the drawing, add the reading I was reflecting on, write a bit about what I noticed in the text and chuck a couple of questions in that seem to spring to mind when I ponder them.

By the way if you want to use my stuff that is great, just let me know and don’t use it to make millions (not that I really think you can!), not unless you are going to give it all to the poor!

 

 

 

Give us more faith! Luke 17:5-10 Pentecost + 20, 4th October 2016

img066

Luke 17:5-10

I struggle with this reading, because some  people use it to tell people if only you had enough faith you would be healed. I don’t think this is what it is all about.. It is found just after Jesus told the disciples that they had to forgive people 70 X 7 and if anyone asks for you forgiveness you have to grant it.. My response to being told that would be ” wow, give me more faith to be able to do this!”. Because when I have been hurt by another to forgive them is not an easy task, let alone to keep forgiving them.  Of course the other side of this is people use it to say you should stay in abusive relationship particularly  if they keep asking for forgiveness, I would suggest you move to the next verse about the widow and the judge before locking that idea in as well..

I do think the disciples were onto something, to love as Jesus loved is no easy task and sometimes we need to call on the strength of God to help us through.. We would like that faith to take away the struggle, to make it simple and easy but a tree is not removed  from the ground easily (well if my experience of trying to get the weeds out of my garden is anything to go by!)  The slave in the second part of the reading has already worked hard all day and is expected to come in and make a meal.. But this is the life we are called to.. it isn’t just about being loved and healed and hopeful, it is about changing the world and this goes against what comes easily. I too, like the disciples, beg God for more faith, the strength to do what I am called to do. I wonder if the faith of the mustard seed is not about making it easier but the promise of you only have to ask and God is there amongst you and with God’s presence with you, things that you think are impossible, or ridiculous or crazy can happen. Like being able to forgive people or to be patient for justice, or to journey through difficult and dark places.

Feeling consumed! Luke 16:19 – 31 The rich ruler and Lazarus. Pentecost +19, Ordinary 26

img065

Luke 16:19-31

Jeepers talk about a couple of tricky readings!!  So Jesus tells the story of the rich man and Lazarus.. Lazarus had spent his life outside of the rich mans gates, suffering with ill health and exclusion from his community and the rich man couldn’t take the time of day to help him. It’s stories like this that remind us of God’s justice.. That God may take a lot longer and maybe not do it the way you expect but ultimately justice will come.. It is Abraham he calls out for mercy to and Abraham reminds him of who he had been. As I tried drawing this conversation I was thinking about Lazarus and the sort of person he was.. After a lifetime of suffering and neglect, was he happy feeling justified that the rich man had got what he deserved after a lifetime of ignoring his sufferring or was he compassionate?

With this reading I always really quickly go to the brothers.. The rich man says if you only would send someone back from the dead then they would believe.. Abraham reminds him that they have the prophets and Moses to offer guidance and wisdom and if they can’t listen to them, even if someone does come back from the dead they would still not listen and change their ways.. It makes me think of how often people who have decided about something will not change their mind no matter how good a point you make.. Some people regardless of what is put before them just will not listen. I always enjoy the irony that Jesus is saying this, as one who will and people still didn’t believe him!

I wonder too whether had the rich man been given the chance whether he would have changed, living in the lap of luxury, having a great life.. I’m thinking about when things are good or when we have what we need or even what we like and we get a bit caught up in that, how sometimes maybe we too might struggle a bit to notice the other or see things from the other side or notice the ones who are suffering around us. For me I know that there are times where I just can’t care.. I think this can be different for different people. For some it is because they have it all and love it all and are not giving it up for anyone.. But then there is the other side, when people can’t care anymore because there is nothing left to give, they are so broken, so fragile. It is interesting looking at this reading now in light of the people I know and why they care or don’t care.. In the first half of the story we see the rich ruler who was too busy loving and enjoying it all and Lazarus didn’t even make it into his vision because he was so consumed with himself, but then we have Abraham speaking for Lazarus saying you had it good, he had it hard, now it is time for him to be comforted. In essence the chasm was actually created by the rich man, Lazarus had been invisible to him and now he was invisible to Lazarus..At any point this could have been a different picture for either of them if the one who had took the time to remember the one who didn’t have.

I thought today I would leave some gaps for you to draw in the sorts of things you might feel consumed by that stop you from noticing the suffering of others.

I think for me too it is a good reminder that  God calls us to love others but there is times too where we need to be comforted ourselves..

What do we do when we get caught out? Pentecost +18, Ordinary 25 , Luke 16:1-13

img063

Luke 16:1-13

This is one very tricky reading.. It would seem to carry a lot of contradictions in it.. Here is this manager which we can imply from what the owner is saying has done the wrong thing or at least not done a very good job.. He gets caught out and so then intentionally goes out to rip off the owner even more, to win the favour of his neighbours, to benefit him after he loses his job.. Instead of getting mad the owner actually to some degree respects the man.. Jesus is impressed by the actions and comments   “And I tell you, make friends for yourselves by means of dishonest wealth[b] so that when it is gone, they may welcome you into the eternal homes.

What is he on about?? As if this wasn’t enough Jesus says if you can’t be honest in the small ways how can you be trusted with big ones, if you can’t be trusted with dishonest wealth how can you be trusted with true treasures??

Honestly reading this passage is like playing a game of monopoly for me. After years of playing it I still have absolutely no idea how to really play the game, winning  seems to be left to pure chance!!

But it is interesting  reflecting on this reading what comes to mind.. As you can see the monopoly man took a chance, some say he chose to use his power, the little he had left for relationship and that is what Jesus was commending him for..

I  wonder if this story is actually a continuation of the theme of grace that is being explored the chapter before in the prodigal son and the lost coin and sheep.

What if this story is actually about what we do when we have been caught out doing the wrong thing? Do we try to make the most of it or do we sit back and let fate decide what will happen to us. Do we go out denying or fighting it, wasting energy on anger. From this perspective it makes sense to me about why he was commended, he didn’t rest on his laurels or sit back a victim or rage, he did what he could with what he had..

I wonder if part of the criticism for Jesus of people of the light is that they expect God to save them or make it better, not taking any responsibility for themselves. To transform your life, when greed is what has taken over to the point of disrespect, if you are to the point of only caring about the money you will be left with nothing.. The manager had to lose everything to be ok in the long run.. What if he just took the money and ran? Eventually it would run out.. But in the end I think he was investing in a second chance.. By people owing him a favour, it gave himself the opportunity to prove himself again and maybe gain employment.. He was in fact investing in a different future. It was a gamble.

I must confess I kind of hope it pays off for him.

Of course it brings me to the place in my own life.. Where do I rage, or sit back and play the victim? What am I hoping God will save me from? Where would I like a second chance? Where do I need to make the most with what I have got? Am I using what I know to the best of my ability to work for God?  Are there only certain gifts and skills that are God’s and the rest have no relation because they are what I use in the “real” world? Is there a line? Should there be one?

If you are taking a risk either sorting something out or for God this week, I pray it may pay off..

 

Who I was, who I am , who I could be; Sept 11,2016, Pentecost +17, Ordinary 24

img061

1 Timothy 12-17

This is the New Testament reading for this week. If you are interested in seeing the Gospel reading you can find it at the bottom of this post.

I don’t normally like drawing Paul’s work because of how wordy it is and hard to translate into image. I had already drawn the gospel reading this week so thought I would give it a go..I feel like the theme for this reading is about who I am or who I was and who I could be.. Paul is sharing how grateful he is to Jesus for giving him the responsibility to be the leader he is, despite the fact that he wasn’t exactly in the best position to reflect that before he met Jesus.. He acknowledges that  he had been violent and a blasphemer and one who persecuted others.. but he did it out of ignorance.. Jesus met him in this place and literally opened his eyes to who he was and what he was doing. Then he transformed him for a different purpose.

You may have noticed that when God’s spirit moves over a person I often use the Japanese wave pattern. I love the power that it exhibits. The waves, and the movement of God is not a slight lapping at the ankles but a powerful and transformative overcoming of what was. I think of who Paul was, a leader in the Jewish community who task was to persecute and kill Christians being transformed into one himself, I never realised before the danger that put his life into.. Those who he most trusted he now became the enemy of. I think how powerful must have that encounter with the living God been that it would bring him to risk this much!

It is from the tears of grief, sorrow and shame, that humility comes and brings refreshment and space for the growth of something new. Paul says that Jesus offers him mercy and that the grace of the Lord overflowed with mercy and love..

I was thinking about the things we carry in our lives, the things we do and judgements we make based on ignorance. The barbed wire fences and stone walls that keep others and God out and stop us from being open to the possibility of new things God is saying to us.. Jesus comes into those places that are overflowing with grace, mercy and love.. This in turn brings hope..

If God was able to break through to Paul, one so caught up in his ways and religion that he could no longer have compassion but only saw the enemy. How much more is God willing to break into our world, offering grace and mercy .. Transforming us for a new way and giving us the strength to overcome what we were, to be what we could be.. If you look beside the old Paul with the whip, there is the heartbeat sign. It was used a lot to demonstrate hope, I liked it because it reminded me that whilst ever there is a heartbeat there is hope.

Luke 15:1-32

This drawing was one of my early attempts at lectionary doodles.. The thing I noticed with this reading was that before the joyous finding there was deep loss and grief first..  I also noticed that the people who had lost things went to embarrassing lengths, giving up all sense of pride to retrieve it.. In all of it was the overwhelming sense of the lost things being treasured and even the brother who remained and could not see his value to the father was equally treasured..  I loved when I thought about it, how God deeply treasures us and goes to embarrassing lengths to find us when we are lost..

Letting it all go,Considering the cost, Luke 14:25-33, Pentecost +16

img060

Reading:

Luke 14:25-33

NRSV –Luke 14:25 – 33 NRSV

The Message – Luke 14:25-33

I love building homes shows..  I love seeing what will happen and how their dreams and ideas come into reality.. The bible today says no-one builds a tower, or goes to war ,without first figuring out the cost..To take on both of these task requires a lot of committment.. Yet some people do.. When they begin the journey they have no idea what they are in for.. Some don’t even know how much it will cost they’ll just sort it out as they go along.. Even the best of planners usually blow the budget (which can be alot of money) by at least 10%.. I had no idea of what I would be in for when I decided to follow Jesus..

Today I have included 2 versions of the reading, the first so we can remember the heat and seriousness that Jesus was on about, the second, The Message  because I think it makes the point a little more clearly.. The beginning of the reading tells us there were a whole stack of people following Jesus, by now over half way through Luke, Jesus was getting to be popular.. I can understand his frustration at people wanting to be around him but not take him seriously or understanding what he was on about..  For some it may have looked like an easier option. Jesus was critical of the law and those who adhered to it too tightly or forgot that it really was all about loving God and your neighbour.. But for Jesus these were  radical costly  commitments, that would turn your family against you and could send you  broke..  Jesus was asking if you want to follow me are you willing to let go of everything you value?

For me following Jesus has been a very interesting and windy road. The love of God has got me through many  dark places and helped me to recover well from difficult circumstances.  My willingness to go wherever you lead, has meant I have worked with street kids, and the most wealthiest people, very small and large communities and I have been challenged to think deeply about my faith in ways not asked of by the church. All of which my life has been so much richer for.. But for this to work I had to hold lightly the things I value, I had to be willing to sit in a place of conflict at times with family, friends and the church. It means there are weeks I worry about money, yet choose to remain generous.

I love in the message how it says “Anyone who won’t shoulder his own cross and follow behind me can’t be my disciple.” I love the values and vision that God gives us through Jesus. It makes a difference in my life. I can see how it can and does make a difference in the world but for this to work requires that everyone shoulder their own cross to make it happen. We can’t rely on our parents, friends, missionaries or our faith communities to take our share of the load. If we do, it becomes unbalanced and falls over.. Jesus knew this and tried to help people understand..

My experience of faith is that I have not had to walk away from my family, but I have had to walk my own path in following Jesus. It has been in all areas of my life that the Jesus values is the filter of which I need to make sense of the rest of the world. Is this loving God? is this loving my neighbour as myself? So in doing the drawings today the questions came to me, what is it that I am still holding onto more tightly than my committment to God? Is it work, is it home, is it family’s opinion, is it success, is it money,is it a long life, is it following the dream? For the prayer of “your kingdom come” to work requires all of us to shoulder our own cross.. I pray for courage and strength  as you recheck your life, may your hands and heart be opened kindly this week.

 

August 28th 2016,Pentecost+15, Luke 14:7-14

img059

Luke 14:7-14

7When he noticed how the guests chose the places of honor, he told them a parable. 8“When you are invited by someone to a wedding banquet, do not sit down at the place of honor, in case someone more distinguished than you has been invited by your host; 9and the host who invited both of you may come and say to you, ‘Give this person your place,’ and then in disgrace you would start to take the lowest place. 10But when you are invited, go and sit down at the lowest place, so that when your host comes, he may say to you, ‘Friend, move up higher’; then you will be honored in the presence of all who sit at the table with you. 11For all who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” 12He said also to the one who had invited him, “When you give a luncheon or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, in case they may invite you in return, and you would be repaid. 13But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind. 14And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you, for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”

This reading this week has created some very interesting discussions about how we relate to other people.. Who do we include or exclude? WHo are easy to relate to and who do we avoid? We were talking about how sometimes we try to look like we are make an effort but the reality is a very different thing.

The whole discussion today about sitting in the place of honour is an interesting one, there are things going on here that is assumed but is not overtly spoken about.. I have always thought about it in terms of wanting to sit with the cool or funky people, like having the chance to sit with a movie star.. But here, it is also about getting in the ear of the person who has power.. There were often bussiness transactions, family negotiation..

It made me think about the people we sit with and about who has our ear, or who do we listen to and who we have the ear of..  I am sure you have noticed with the new technology that all of a sudden if you do a search on something, every page you look at is advertising what you were looking for. (unfortunate when someone uses your computer for a search for something you are not interested in!) The problem with this is that there is few things that actually then challenge us to think differently..  We can go on our Merry way assuming everyone then is like us..

It takes courage to unlock our doors and our hearts to those who are different, those who are uncomfortable, or who seemingly have nothing to offer us..  The reading says we will be rewarded in heaven if we invite these people to our table. I would say we are often rewarded in the now when we have the courage to to open our doors and hearts to those who are different.

So the questions for me who is sitting outside my door that I am not too keen to let in? Who are the people that I am vying for the attention of and why? I was at a conference today and watched the people move around the tables.. The interesting thing I noticed about myself in this is that often I choose to sit with people because they make me feel safe and it is only when I am feeling safe and confident that I have the courage to open my life to those I don’t know… Somedays we need to be that person.. Somedays we just don’t have the strength to go there. But we are never supposed to go there in our own strength.. We are always sitting at the table with God first!

An after note… Did you notice that the empty space in the picture is in the shape of a cross? I found it interesting that the door is in the centre of it.. It challenges me to think that maybe it should be Jesus who decides who is in and out..

August 21, 2016: Proper 16 / Ordinary 21 / Pentecost +14

img058

Luke 13:10-17

10Now he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath. 11And just then there appeared a woman with a spirit that had crippled her for eighteen years. She was bent over and was quite unable to stand up straight. 12When Jesus saw her, he called her over and said, “Woman, you are set free from your ailment.” 13When he laid his hands on her, immediately she stood up straight and began praising God. 14But the leader of the synagogue, indignant because Jesus had cured on the sabbath, kept saying to the crowd, “There are six days on which work ought to be done; come on those days and be cured, and not on the sabbath day.” 15But the Lord answered him and said, “You hypocrites! Does not each of you on the sabbath untie his ox or his donkey from the manger, and lead it away to give it water? 16And ought not this woman, a daughter of Abraham whom Satan bound for eighteen long years, be set free from this bondage on the sabbath day?” 17When he said this, all his opponents were put to shame; and the entire crowd was rejoicing at all the wonderful things that he was doing.

I wonder what it means that a woman had a spirit that crippled her? I assumed it meant she was bent over with a bad back.. But what if it was depresssion or anxiety?

I found the people’s response interesting.. If the woman was coming to be healed by God surely the best day to be healed by God would be on God’s day.. I wonder why it annoyed them soo much that she wanted to be healed? Were they jealous? Were they annoyed that this woman took Jesus away from the important task of teaching them.. or were they in the middle of a great thought and she interupted!

August 14, 2016: Proper 15 / Ordinary 20 / Pentecost +13

img057

Luke 12:49-56

49“I came to bring fire to the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! 50I have a baptism with which to be baptized, and what stress I am under until it is completed! 51Do you think that I have come to bring peace to the earth? No, I tell you, but rather division! 52From now on five in one household will be divided, three against two and two against three;53they will be divided: father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.”

54He also said to the crowds, “When you see a cloud rising in the west, you immediately say, ‘It is going to rain’; and so it happens. 55And when you see the south wind blowing, you say, ‘There will be scorching heat’; and it happens. 56You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky, but why do you not know how to interpret the present time?

When I was younger I never really understood this verse.. Why would Jesus want to cause conflict in families? and have them divided against each other?  As an adult I understand a lot better. As I have got older I have watched and found myself and my family developing certain views about things.. How we raise our kids, what to do about money, how we treat people of different races, our politic views, what we think about God.. Even people who have been raised in the same family can end up with very different world views and ideas about how things should be done..

The way of Jesus is very counter cultural, Jesus says greed is not good, western culture needs greed to keep the economics of the world to keep moving. Be compassionate to the stranger and the downtrodden, in a culture of fear and individualism only look after those you love and trust.

The next section of the reading doesn’t make sense out of context.. Leading up to this Luke has been going back and forwards between relax, God loves you and will take care of you to be ready be prepared if you are not found doing the right thing you will end up punished for it.. For me the next verse (57) makes it all make sense… “And why do you not judge for yourselves what is right?”  This tirade comes out of a man coming to Jesus to ask him to sort things out with his family over a will.. If people are living for justice, compassion and if everyone is working on this agenda it should all be simple, right?.. But it is not.. Not everyone is working towards the same agenda.. Ironically too is that sometimes we can be working towards the same agenda but have very different ways of going about it..

The challenge from Jesus, why are you not judging for yourself what is right, you are smart cookies  you can know a whole bunch of things about the world around you, So where is the wisdom? The thing I noticed in drawing this reading this week is in these two examples he gave they were about seeing something and know what was going to happen as a consequence of that.. I wonder if Jesus is asking us to look at all of our lives and ask the same question?

7th August 2016 Proper 14C / Ordinary 19C / Pentecost +12

img050Luke 12:32-48

32“Do not be afraid, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. 33Sell your possessions, and give alms. Make purses for yourselves that do not wear out, an unfailing treasure in heaven, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. 34For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. 35“Be dressed for action and have your lamps lit; 36be like those who are waiting for their master to return from the wedding banquet, so that they may open the door for him as soon as he comes and knocks. 37Blessed are those slaves whom the master finds alert when he comes; truly I tell you, he will fasten his belt and have them sit down to eat, and he will come and serve them.38If he comes during the middle of the night, or near dawn, and finds them so, blessed are those slaves. 39“But know this: if the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into. 40You also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an unexpected hour.”

41Peter said, “Lord, are you telling this parable for us or for everyone?”42And the Lord said, “Who then is the faithful and prudent manager whom his master will put in charge of his slaves, to give them their allowance of food at the proper time? 43Blessed is that slave whom his master will find at work when he arrives. 44Truly I tell you, he will put that one in charge of all his possessions. 45But if that slave says to himself, ‘My master is delayed in coming,’ and if he begins to beat the other slaves, men and women, and to eat and drink and get drunk, 46the master of that slave will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour that he does not know, and will cut him in pieces, and put him with the unfaithful. 47That slave who knew what his master wanted, but did not prepare himself or do what was wanted, will receive a severe beating. 48But the one who did not know and did what deserved a beating will receive a light beating. From everyone to whom much has been given, much will be required; and from the one to whom much has been entrusted, even more will be demanded.

I have a thing for bags and wallets, I like them but I don’t treat them with a lot of respect so they break, often.. So the concept of making purses for yourself that don’t wear out quite appealed to me.. As a sew – er I thought what would it be made of? and immediately came to mind a little purse I had as a kid, it had one of those metal clips on them that as a kid was really hard to open, my one was quite plain but in my mind I saw a beautiful patchwork one made up of all the bits and pieces you pick up along the way, stitched differently every time.. little peices of fabric like treasured memories.

It is interesting my little purse came to mind that was so hard to open because I do think this is what the reading is about. When the purse is closed there are two things that happen, no new things can go in and the things in there are not terribly useful. They are only useful when they are pulled out and given to another.. We like to hold onto things for a rainy day, but how often when it is raining do we actually use it or are we second guessing that this is the right time? For me the purse needed to be open, the contents available to share with others but also the space is made for God to be able to add more treasures into those things of our heart, because that is what God wants to do, give us the things of the kingdom. I love how often when we have the courage to be open and generous, prepared to share and care, how often that comes back to us threefold, which for me is what the next section of the reading is about, when the master serves the slave.

One of the  things that stands out in all of this reading, is the reminder that faith is not a Sunday only , or a “when people are looking at me”experience, it is something that needs to be lived in everyday and every moment.. The being prepared, not being caught off guard, challenges us to ask how is what happening now in our life reflecting kingdom values?

The drawing this week raised a number of questions for me, what are the purses we make? where are the things of my heart stored?  What are my treasures? What do I need to let go of?  and  what would I like to work on collecting? I have left the coins blank so if you want to you can draw or write on them the things you treasure, the things you hold onto or the things you need to let go of ,or you may like to ponder the things you would like to treasure. I love the various ways we can have conversations with God!

 

 

Proper 13C / Ordinary 18C / Pentecost +11 Foolish rich man

img046.jpg

Luke 12:13-21

13Someone in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the family inheritance with me.” 14But he said to him, “Friend, who set me to be a judge or arbitrator over you?” 15And he said to them, “Take care! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of possessions.” 16Then he told them a parable: “The land of a rich man produced abundantly. 17And he thought to himself, ‘What should I do, for I have no place to store my crops?’ 18Then he said, ‘I will do this: I will pull down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. 19And I will say to my soul, ‘Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; relax, eat, drink, be merry.’ 20But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life is being demanded of you. And the things you have prepared, whose will they be?’ 21So it is with those who store up treasures for themselves but are not rich toward God.”

 

I am so enjoying the challenge of drawing the reading.. Today was particularly interesting.. The questions it raised for me were twofold.. What are the things as human beings we store in our silos, things that have our never fulfilled appitite? Secondly what are the things of life that are not about the abundance of possessions?

So inside the silo is a couple of ideas of the things that can consume us with the need for more! I did find it interesting that it is not just about more but also about mine, you could easily replace the word more with mine because greed is not just about more but also a loss of hospitality or willingness to share..

What are those things  that remind us that life is about more than the gathering and storing of possessions? The beauty we find in nature, music, art, friendship, family, hospitality, community, compassion. It was interesting how many of those were about us and ours rather than mine. For Luke those things are the things that make us rich towards God, not others in general but God. When we live in this space of grateful appreciation for the everyday rather than the striving for more it is here we become rich to God..

I think that the reality of this situation is that for each of us the things that come to mind will be different.. The things I like to store up in my silo (hats actually) are not the same as yours and the things that add more to my life may not be what brings more to yours.. So this week the drawing has open spaces for you to add those things you can think of, both in and outside of the silo.. I would love to hear your ideas maybe you could share them in the comments!
