|Day 123/366 and Day 124/366 (5/2/2012 and 5/3/2012)|
How I am really enjoying teaching my art students! This week we switched gears away from Georgia O'Keeffe, a classic art master, to Mia Pearlman, a contemporary artist based primarily out of New York. Her work in paper sculpture truly took my breath away when I saw it presented in a paper craft book. DO check out her pieces at http://www.miapearlman.com. As a class we are working to present a collaborative exhibit in the style of her work. I'll keep posting pictures as the process continues to unfold.
7 Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee(K) from your presence?
8 If I go up to the heavens,(L) you are there;
if I make my bed(M) in the depths, you are there.
9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
10 even there your hand will guide me,(N)
your right hand(O) will hold me fast.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
and the light become night around me,”
12 even the darkness will not be dark(P) to you;
the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you.13 For you created my inmost being;(Q)
you knit me together(R) in my mother’s womb.(S)
14 I praise you(T) because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,(U)
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made(V) in the secret place,
when I was woven together(W) in the depths of the earth.(X)
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained(Y) for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts,[a](Z) God!(AA)
How vast is the sum of them!
18 Were I to count them,(AB)
they would outnumber the grains of sand(AC)—
when I awake,(AD) I am still with you."
God, we are made in Your image, and you are the Great Creator. Thank you for endowing us with even a breath of your creative spirit.
