A One Word Masterpiece

| written by Alece Ronzino | 1 comments

One Worder and artist, Aletheia Schmidt, painted a depiction of her word for this year: Intimacy. And it was too beautiful not to share!

She titled the piece Spirit Come Down, and penned these thoughts to accompany it:

:: :: ::

It’s always been about us.
But some times I’ve known it more than others.
And at the beginning of this year, as my heart heard the invitation of intimacy, I’ve known it like never before.

So, Spirit, would you come down?
Would you reign down?

This is my desire, too.

Aletheia Schmidt (M.A., Spiritual Director) has been making new things from old things for most of her life, but in January of 2012, she began calling herself an artist. Stepping away from the security of a regular paycheck, she considers herself blessed with the chance of a lifetime to venture into a season of exploration and deep courage. Aletheia is in the midst of pursuing her love of painting and longs for opportunities to share how the arts, imagination, and creativity offer life. She specializes in work with yupo paper and acrylic inks and provides a safe and encouraging space to explore and expand one’s understanding of self, others, and Spirit. She teaches and shares every chance she gets, working with individuals and groups, youth and adults. 

Connect with Aletheia on Facebook and Twitter. See more of her art on her website and view pieces for purchase on her Etsy Shop.

After pioneering a nonprofit in South Africa for 13 years, Alece Ronzino now lives in Nashville, TN. She’s a nonprofit communications strategist, freelance copywriter/editor, and the founder of One Word 365. More importantly, she dances in the car, talks with her hands, and makes a mean guacamole. She blogs occasionally but candidly about searching for God in the question marks of life and faith. Follow Alece on Instagram and Twitter, and visit her blog, Grit and Glory.


[email protected]: Aletheia, What a wonderful word, intimacy with the Spirit...thank you for sharing your heart and beautiful soul with us. My word this year is "Trust" and now I am wondering what that would look like...I am not an artist. Blessings as you pursue your love of painting, Dolly Reply
