Illustration Friday: sorrow.
I don’t know about this illustration. I’ve drawn plenty of things when I’ve been sorrowful but none of them seemed right for today. I don’t think this illustration is as strong as it could be because the idea in my head kept getting morphed and morphed and now it’s what it is. But I thought about all the times when I’ve been in the depths of despair and this praying to God seems to be where I go when I hit rock bottom. It’s a shame I only seem to have faith when things are bad, but at the same time I’m glad I do have that. I was thinking what it must look like to God to see all these people crying “why?” over and over. It’s funny how sorrow never seems to make sense at the time.
Usually I like to leave Illustration Friday posts up into the weekend but I don’t know if I can leave this one up. It just kinda puts a bummer spin on the weekend. I’ll think of something. In the meantime check out the other guys. Some people really found joy in their interpretations.
Back to our Regularly Scheduled Program
Thanks for all the nice comments and emails about yesterday’s post. I love you internet. It is so nice to know that there are always people out there to encourage me when things get tough. But also know this, I am blessed with an inner optimism that keeps me going no matter what. I think I inherited that from my Dad. So now with Toby’s mom safely in the convalescent home (for a few weeks at least), we can go back to:
Getting excited about going to Paris and making dumb movies about my cats! Wooo Hooo!
My new shirt is from Pinky and my necklace is from my other mother in law. How can a girl be down with friend like these?!!
