Unspoken Secrets Art by Diana Castillo Pastel on Paper 18”x25” This beautiful pastel drawing was created using chalk pastels and pastel pencils. This artwork does not include matting or frame. It is rolled up and shipped out in a tube. I always saw writing in my journals as writing letters to God. I would pour my heart out filling every blank page with hurtful words, from a broken heart with hungry thoughts, turning myself inside out. It was through journaling that I could be transparent and honest about everything. It is not good to keep everything bottled up inside our hearts. There are moments we have to cry out, moments we have to go into deep prayer, moments we have to write, moments that we need to talk and share our emotions with others, moments we have to sit in the presence of God and just listen to His guidance and receive His comfort. It was through journaling that I wrote out my confessions, prayers and heart’s desires.
