I did this drawing of Rose working when she was around seven years old. Off to the side of the drawing I noted what she was saying that day as I captured her on paper. She was making a proclamation about her future that turned out accurate. Rose is now nineteen and is in full swing as a professional textile artist. What is interesting to me is how as chldren we play at our vocation. When I use the word vocation I am not talking about a job. I am talking about destiny. I am talking about the life God has called us to like Moses in the desert with the burning bush. I truely believe that each person is called out to do amazing and totally unique things. I also believe that the largest portion of the people who wake up every morning never tap into who they really are because they long ago fell under a drowsy spell of too much cheap food and shallow entertainment that left them dull and detached from not only their creator but their own ability to create. With young children there seems to be all the aliveness and wonder still a glow. Jesus has clearly asked us to become like little children and I can think of no better way to acomplish this impossibility than to spend plenty of time with children and let play begin.
