(a continuation of sorts from the last post)
A couple of posts back I quoted G.K. Chesterton. I'm including here in case you missed it:
"But perhaps God is strong enough to exult in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, "Do it again" to the sun; and every evening, "Do it again" to the moon. It may not be automatic monotony that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but has never gotten tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we.”
Yesterday we spent some wonderful time with family, most of it at the Gaylord-Pickens Museum in Oklahoma City.
Pardon a bit of brazen bragging. Our first-born, Corey, has an exhibit currently on display there. A while back he embarked on a year-long project to create a poster a day for 366 days. The project is called the "Daily Artifact." You can see it at the Gaylord-Pickens until April 5.
While you are there, take time to tour the Oklahoma Heritage Museum which is a part of the Gaylord-Pickens. One of the cool things there is a "dress-up" room for kids. The kids can choose to be folk musicians, astronauts, ballerinas (or as our two-year old grand-girl calls them "rina-rinas"), a Miss America and more roles that are a part of Oklahoma's culture.
So, as a follow up to the last post on the value of creativity and Chesterton's warning about sinning and growing old: don't forget to play, or make something.
