My hubby and I attended a benefit concert last night.
A very brave boy named Micah, (from our church circles),
has recently survived a bout with cancer.
He is 8.
And sweet as ever.
And he credits God for his recovery.
(as do we all.)
The concert was a band made up of a mish mash
of talent and style.
It was really well done.
All proceeds were for the Children's Hospital near us.
One thing that really hit home
was the discussion surrounding Art Therapy.
have you heard of it?
I hadn't it.
It is best described in this way:
Art therapy provides an important outlet for our patients to
channel their emotions and feelings through art,
which I feel plays an important part in their healing process.
~ Dr. Shayna Zelcer,
The concept fascinated me.
Probably because I recognized it.
I have been utilizing Art Therapy
since my dad has passed away.
I just didn't know that that was what I should call it.
But I've been on a crafting craze.
And it has truly helped me deal with things around me.
And express myself in a way no words could.
All of us crafters,
sewers, quilters and knitters
have known that this works
long before they called it Art Therapy.
Crafts are good for the soul.
What is your favourite kind of Art Therapy?
