National Freedom Day in America commemorates the 11th Amendment which abolished slavery signed by President Lincoln on February 1, 1865.
On this day we pause to give thanks for the freedoms we have, and pray for those peoples who do not have freedom, for even though slavery was abolished all those years ago unfortunately it still exists today worldwide.
It was explained as an experience to discover hidden things in your art that at first glance your eyes might not see but that through prayer God might want to reveal to you.
It sounded intriguing so I decided to try it.
Instructions are: with paper and pencil shut your eyes and make 33 dots on the paper. Open eyes and connect the dots in one continuous line without lifting the pencil from the paper.
Pray and ask God to show you what He might want you to see or what He wants to reveal to you.
It might take some time to see and know exactly what that might be, because for me, at first glance, I only saw Disney animals in my dot drawing—Goofy, Pluto and Dumbo, but then after a few days of prayer and pondering I saw the Hammer, and then the Bible verse in Jeremiah 23:29 came to mind.
The end result was an amazing work of art that I feel God wanted me to create!
