I created this fractal on June 24, 2023, using Jux 4.001 software.
It's been an eventful day today. The electricity briefly went out. Then, there was a severe thunderstorm with a tornado warning. The warning ended about eight minutes ago, but we are under a tornado watch for four more hours.

I took a break from making fractals and art for a few months. Two days ago, I started being artistic again. I hope everyone has been well. I apologize for the lack of updates to my blog lately. It's been a hot summer so far, and spring was hot, too. I'm feeling very thankful for the air conditioning and ceiling fans.

I made this fractal on February 20, 2023.
Here is a haiku I wrote on March 3, 2023:
The weather has been scary recently. We've had tornado watches and warnings. We've also had a lot of flooding in my city due to all the rain. The sounds the wind makes and the general atmospheric sounds sound like tornados. We don't have a basement, so it is frightening.
Our coffee maker died last night. We ordered a new one, and it will be here tomorrow by 10:00 PM. In the meantime, we've been getting coffee from McDonald's all day. We NEED our coffee.
Here is a writing prompt for you to use for your poetry, creative writing, art, music, lyrics, or anything else you want. The word is "endure."

I haven't read much of the Bible, and I don't even know what is going on in the rest of the chapter or book of John because I haven't read it. I only know that this particular verse brings me comfort. It comes at a time when my depression has been more severe than usual. I needed to hear these words. It seems as if the world is falling apart. People everywhere are dying from catastrophes and malicious killers. Sometimes I feel like the world is coming to an end. It feels like everyone hates each other. The country is divided, and the world is at war. Plus, diseases are going around. It's a very scary time to be alive.
It occurred to me recently that these things are getting my attention and making me NEED God more. I never really paid attention to Him, except when I was younger for a brief time. I haven't prayed very much in my life. I haven't asked God for help. It was as if He didn't even exist to me. In fact, for a while, I was an atheist. I turned my back on God when I saw how many other Christians behaved. I'm talking about the ones who pretend to love Jesus but don't care about others. They just don't follow in Jesus's footsteps. I turned away from God when it all became too much to witness.
Recently, I talked with God, and He's shown me that I can still be a Christian without paying attention to the bad behavior of the pretenders. Their behavior is between God and them. We all face Him in the end.
I promised God that I won't ignore Him anymore and that I will work on my relationship with Him. I will talk with Him often. I will ask for help when I need it. I will thank Him more often. After all, He's looked out for me all these years, and I've not thanked Him enough. He gave me a good man for a husband.
So, if you want to call God my "Invisible Friend," go right ahead.
He still seems scary, and I am working on that feeling. I know God is good, kind, and loving. He wants to be loved in return. He wouldn't have created us if He didn't.
Thank you, God. I love You.
