As I get ready to write my 28 Things list, I thought it would be fun to do a 27 Things recap.
1. Make more art, and sell my artwork + photography at a local craft show. 2. Join a small group and begin cultivating Biblical community in this new life season.
I’ve been learning a lot about what it means to be part of a church family (more on this in an upcoming post), and I’m just feeling incredibly blessed that the Lord led me to the church He did.
3. Cultivate a stronger prayer life. 15. Serve my community. (Will continue). :) 16. Take weekend trips to see out-of-town friends. (Will continue). :) 17. Do more creative writing. (I won third place for one of my poems in a local show.)
18. Invest in a new computer/creative software. Yay! Next up on my wish list: some more photography software like Rad Lab and a new camera! All in good time, right? :) 21. Experiment with typography: Take a letterpress class and/or calligraphy class. Invest in some pretty new fonts. I’ve been downloading some fun free fonts here and there, and I’d also like to purchase some of the beautiful fonts from Wood Type Revival. Wowza, they’re awesome! 24. Read Kate Morton’s new novel The Distant Hours. Completely enchanting! (Dear Kate, please hurry to write another!)
(P.S. You can expect some of my unfinished 27 Things to be making an appearance on the 28 Things list…) ;-)

It’s encouraging to see the adventures and growth opportunities I had this past year. I feel like every year and every season offers us the opportunity to become more and more of the person God knows we can become. I know I still have so much growing and learning to do, but I also know that God is committed to seeing the work He began through to the end.
