Back in Oklahoma, Heather the Artist from My Hometown (aka Audrey Eclectic) is, as always, hot on the trail in her pursuit and love of art and history. In the course of her journey, she recently visited the art museum founded by my Great-Great Uncle, Fr. Gregory Gerrer, O.S.B. Read all about it here! The inspiration she found there worked itself into her newest creation.
In the meantime, here in Minnesota, I am witnessing a different medium of artistry taking place in our new abode. We have an awesome crew painting practically every surface of the interior. The result will be a most pleasant backdrop for the finer and more colorful details of living out our daily lives.
Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we are striving to maintain basic routines while going back and forth between two houses to check on the progress as well as living with heaps of boxes, rolls of packing tape, and paint fan decks spread out on carpet samples, overlaid with fabric swatches. Hopefully I'll have a "before & after" post to show at the end of the tunnel!
It's all very exciting but equally stressful. God is taking care of us every step of the way with a great team of people behind us and we pray to stay centered and seek His holy will. In only a few weeks we will finally gain both the space we need to thrive as well as shave our commute to church and music lessons by two-thirds! Deo gratias!
