“To the Artist of 20116 “
a love letter from your Heavenly Father
by Kara Hochstedler

Dear Artist, you are mine.
From the moment I formed you, strong, deep inside, I knew what you had to bring to the earth. I planned
it in detail and in vibrant color. I sat and thought about how the world could change and move and flow
around you as I chose your space upon the earth, your time to inhabit. Woven intricately inside of you, I
put understanding and kindness, wisdom and delight, and gave them roots to hold onto the deep ground
of your heart. With care I moved people to hold and uplift you, and life treasure to be discovered. I’ve
given you a space in this world and a voice. It is not about the many it reaches, but the one I have given
You are a key in my hand to the unseen by the eyes of man door, and you, I treasure. Every inlay
of your being was place specific, and every moment of your breathing I am near, regardless of
circumstance, neediness, or thought life. I am here. There is no place unexperienced I will not go with
you, and as experience goes, yeah, I was there too. This year I am unfolding inside of you, outward, a
pathway knit in love that will serve as a conduit for connection in the world. It will go beyond the lines,
deeper than envisioned by others, and surprisingly welcomed by many. You will know it by the peace
covering it, laboring through it, pushing against the hastily drawn judgement lines obscuring the view.
Arching through walls made up of mashed singular lines, it will continue forward regardless of differences.
I have given you a name, and Artist, you are mine.
No matter how you might feel, or how many thoughts may crowd your brain, Artist, you are mine to hold. I am covering you and guiding you, and carefully freeing the world around you. Love is here. I’m not alarmed or afraid. We’ve got this. Let’s go.
-Your Heavenly Father
