Made some great progress on learning to make icons A lot of it is giving myself breathing room to learn how to draw correctly\properly. I will mistakes, but I am becoming used to the idea of drawing\creating them as well as setting up a new, more appropriate standard for my life.

It’s a grand thing, Obedience.
Obedience to God is the grandest of things.
The lack of obedience always leads to loneliness and depravity, and of course despondancy (and other such demons). I am not perfect, but in Obedience to Christ I am nearing perfection in Him. Not by the world standards, but by the standards that matter towards my own salvation.
