Jehoshabeath

It's simple, right?

Sometimes I wish things were just...simple.
It makes me sad that things are always so complicated. All kinds of things.

Barriers between us and others,
between us and ourselves,
between us and joy,
between us and God,
between us and the dreams we hold...
We are subjected to countless barriers; and even so, we build still more. Shouldn't life be about overcoming rather than succumbing? (Romans 12:21, 1 John 4:4) Just a moment of peace in my soul, a scene of beauty and warmth for no particular reason but to glory in life and art.

Simple joy.
Minus the barriers.
Isn't that how it should be?
