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

Isaiah 60:1


Light always comes
makes promises
creates energy

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!

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.

Several years ago I made many of these 5" dolls.
Most I gave away, keeping only this little island cutie
created in remembrance of a holiday in Rorotonga.
Thinking of creative ways
to "preach or publish" the Word,
I thought that perhaps
she could be utilized 

as a messenger of the Good News.
I loved designing her costume, twisting bronze wire
into arms, and sprinkling her feet with glitter.

Though she has no wings
I believe she can fly!


The word "army" can be translated "company"
meaning a mass of persons assembled for war or service.
Interestingly - the Hebrew is written in the feminine.

HOPE. What a wonderful word on which
to begin, build, and continue in 2016.

I wrote the word on an oak leaf hydrangea
even before noticing the bud, 

and then discovered a perfect bud 
tipping each branch.

What a visual promise 

of new life to come.
New life to burst forth.
New Life. Life Abundant!
