Making the Most of the Storm
I live in Charleston, SC and for the past week, life as we know it came to a virtual standstill as we braced for Hurricane Florence. As we watched the news, we had to weigh the decision of whether to stay and ride it out or to go. Technically, we live in a coastal evacuation zone. However, our house has never had flooding issues....so, we felt confident as we watched the storm weaken that we were fairly safe to ride it out at home.
That meant that we had a full 8 days of no work or ministry obligations because we were also coming off a short mini-vacation just as the evacuation orders came from the governor. We are by nature, a productive family and we have never that I can remember had 8 days straight of no work or ministry activities. So, we decided to make the most of this time.
We had family dinners together and hung out and cleaned. We also took some time to pursue creative activities that helped to stave off the eventual boredom of being shut in. I decided that I would try my hand at some acrylic pour paintings. I'd done a couple in the past....but, I really wanted to play with this technique while I had this extra time and see where it would go. My husband had fun watching me work too! ;)
I can't wait to show you all the finished pieces once they are dry. I'm going to resin them also since I poured most of these on recycled tiles instead of canvas.
