but what a poor life without it.”
I didn’t have a very good day with my students today. I was pulled in every direction. Students were at different stages of their work and demanding attention. I was completely worn to a frazzle after 8th period. Yes, I am an art teacher. Today was just one of those days. The days are not always like that. Some days are worse. Some days are awesome.
What gives me incentive to continue teaching art other than the obvious financial benefit of having a job? It is the fact that I get to give my students a taste of art that they might not ever get. This exposure may or may not affect their lives. I most likely will never know about the majority.
Yes, I agree with Robert Motherwell. I can’t imagination life without art. In my opinion, Art is nourishment for the soul.
Thank You for the gift of an art filled life. Thank You for the ability to create. Thank you for inspiration. Thank you for sending encouragement when we get worn down. Please bless each and every person that reads this devotional.
In Christ’s Holy name,
