If you go outdoors today for any reason, prepare to sweat. I believe part of the wages of sin is sweat and have in these later years been more prone to it. Today my husband, the artist, is completing a three day painting marathon in Hudson, Wisconsin. Needless to say, I will not be going along on this adventure, but I ask that you all pray for his well being as this is how he makes his living and I know it will be by the sweat of his brow.
Paul is a true artist. He began drawing and painting when he was just a boy. His passion for the arts flourished in high school and he went on to college majoring in art. His career took him through years of the very competitive advertising (Mad Man) business. Later in his career, he created lovely works of sculpture and paintings to go into the homes and business of many. These past few years he continues to WORK as an artist. I say work, because many consider what he does as a hobby and it’s far from that – even though he obviously loves what he does.
So as the heat rises along with the humidity, I am confident that my husband will continue to do his work to the glory of God, who gave him the ability to praise Him in this special way.
“I am a poor man and of little worth, who is laboring in that art that God has given me in order to extend my life as long as possible.” Michelangelo
