LOVE


Love is patient.
Love is kind.

What a perfect time
to reread and ponder
1 Corinthians 13.

What a perfect time
to put it into practice . . .
and practice 

makes perfect!

Atmosphere


I've just begun a new painting.

My thought has been to create
something atmospheric,
and I wonder why.

With pigments and a brush,
 I want to place on canvas
something
with the hard edges gone.

Something like
the blind squinting of Monet.

Something fragile
yet enduring.

Something
with the hard edges gone.

Just the sweet soul
 remaining.

RISE & SHINE


Arise and shine for your light has come
and the glory of the Lord
is risen upon thee.

Isaiah 60:1

***

Light always comes
overcomes
makes promises
creates energy
SHINES!

Witty Inventions


God will give us witty inventions.
Proverbs 8:12

Just showing off some of the tools of the trade
along with a couple of my "word" birds.

What a great time to get out some of those art supplies 
you've gathered in the past 
and begin to put them to good use. 
 By that I mean - entering into the joy of the  Lord
 and joining Him in a creation project.  

Don't you know that He loves to create, 
create new things, even more than you?

  *And Color*
Just yesterday I was thinking that what
God must be thinking when we get all excited
about color swatches in paint stores:
"Hey sweetie, just wait til you get up here.
Your eyes will pop at My color selection!"

Can you just imagine?

Cup of Power

Re-purposing my saved "joy" cup
to proclaim some good news
for 2016!

GLORY

I don't consider myself a photographer,
but lately I've been impressed to
"see" a bit further than has been my habit
and record it with my phone.

This was viewed along Wade Hampton Blvd.
on my Sunday morning drive to Dunkin Donuts.
I saw it to the right and had to find a spot to pull off
the road to stop and take the picture.

There was a choice to be made -
to veer off my established course
or stay on track and quickly attain
that cup of Joe.

I'm so glad I chose to pull off the road.
I'm so glad I had a phone that takes great pictures.
I'm so glad that I stopped . . .
to smell the roses.
