“I am not broken, my heart still beats, my spirit continues to grow.” ~unknown
I have sat with many broken people
and have sat with my broken self.
Like glass I have been broken and shattered.
God repeatedly repaired my brokenness
by carefully gluing me back together
one fragile little piece of me at a time,
until I became whole again.
Leaving only remnants of my brokenness for the world to see,
appearing as beautiful scars
tattooed on my skin
as a reminder of the many struggles
I have survived.

Drawing by Susan Walz (medium used: oil pastels)
I used to draw and paint a lot, but have not done so for a few years. It is something I want to start up again when I feel better and the pieces of my life fit back together more securely. I might try to share more of my artwork, as it used to be a big part of my life and who I was. I have even made money selling my work over the years. Not much, but it was a nice bonus for my hobby.
I would like to share one more drawing with you. This one is an abstract drawing showing a woman lying down crying green tears. The color green and the green ribbon are used to represent mental health awareness. I drew this for an art show for people with mental illness in the area I live.
