Creativity comes in all shapes and sizes. I did a double take one day when I went to visit a woman who lived in a mid sized town and came upon her fence she had hand painted. If it weren’t for the border you might think it was real as the tree was growing up literally around it. The Holsteins look so real at first I thought she lived on the edge of town but in reality this was just the yard next to her house and another house was just adjacent.
She told me she grew up on a farm when she was young, “and they were the best years of her life.” She told me she did not study art, painting or drawing and did not begin that until she was in her late 60’s. She had not only painted the fence on her property but the shed door, and the outside of her back porch wall. She said it helped her channel her worries and gave her purpose. I guess we all need a purpose at every point in our lives.
What makes you get up each day and face another day? What purpose does God have for you here on this earth. I pray each night he show me my purpose. I find that sharing my knowledge and taking care of people is my passion and God has blessed me in that even though I am really close to retirement age, I have been able to change careers and use my previous knowledge to benefit many.
So this double take shows the cow on the left with a puzzled look on it’s face as if to say, “what is your purpose here?” She definitely has captured my eye with her creations. Kudos to all the people out there that find a purpose in life, be it sharing your stories or you are work. You never know how it will make someone’s day.
