I am a Christian, devoted to the Lord and thankful to Him for all He has done for me. I am very blessed and to this day I do not know why. Many people have bad things happen to them and ask “Why me?”. I keep looking at my life and while it is not perfect and I am not exactly where I want to be, I still see the great kindness of my Lord in my life and I ask “Why me?”. Even above that, I especially wonder “Why me?”, when I think that God has brought me into his family, allowing me to have eternal life, which no one deserves. To him, I am completely indebted.
My family is very important to me. My mother is my dearest friend. Our relationship has changed a bit, as she moves closer to her eternal home, but she still is my dear, dear friend and mother. She has been an awesome example of giving and loving at her own expense.
I am very happily married for 20 years. It doesn’t seem that long ago. I married my dear friend, Fredd Wright. My mother has always called him my “rock”, because he has given me so much stability. I call him my “rock on the Rock”. Because Jesus is the Rock of Ages, my Fredd stands on His strength, as I lean on Fredd’s strength.
I am a frustrated artist and pottery is my medium. It is a beautiful melding of the four elements (earth, water, air and fire) to create objects of art, practicality and/or ornamentation. My frustration lies only in that I cannot work in what I love all the time. Some day … Some day …. maybe soon, if God permits.
My other mediums are fiber and paper. My challenge is to pull together the aesthetics of art and my love for the process (the craft side). I would like to work to balance being a crafts woman and an artist. Not compromising technique for the emotional aspect of art, nor compromising expression for strictly utilitarian.
