Today we combine three of my favorite things… art, children and a party. What is better than that? We will honor my daughter’s anniversary of her birth with little friends and art and a good time. How magnificent! I really believe these are also some of God’s favorite things. I don’t believe he made us to be unhappy and alone. So the fun party goes right along with His intentions for us. We hj on or Him and His design together. And art, God is the ultimate master of. He obviously appreciates diversity, color, uniqueness, textures, all things gloriously beautiful. So obviously art is a celebration of His endless skills and He enjoys it. And of course His heart is children. They are the perpetuation of His creation. They are unique masterpieces of His design and vulnerable so He loves them dearly. So we celebrate our Maker today as we celebrate things He loves and designed so perfectly. This is a beautiful day. Yay!!!!😄❤
To my enormous pleasure, Polk Museum of Art now offers free admission to everyone all the time. Super excited as the museum is across from the library we frequent. And we are super excited to have access without yet another financial drain. Praise God for such blessings! We will go often and I will get back to my oil painting I have missed so much. Yay!!!!❤
Some people eat cookies as they are. My daughter eats them for what she imagines them to be. This comes with an artistic child. Beautiful and funny.❤
Poetry warms your mind by the fire.
It is words transformed into art.
And tickling the mind with thoughts so profound
Is just as important as words bright and round.
And the sun seems to tickle the pen as one writes
Poetry meaning so much or so light,
And dancing on tables is paper and pen
And words of expression or meaning or friend.
And keeping one company, poetry does
So keep poems coming and continue art, love.❤
As I read, I glimpse the mind of the author. I see their heart, read their mind, know a little of their innerness. Writing is an artistic expression of who we are and only really good artist writers can convey their story as they convey another. It is fantastic and I confess reading is one of my greatest joys. And the Bible is my favorite book because the Author/God tells His whole story through many other authors at various times in history and assembled it and thus revealed His mind and will and heart, so epic. This is my favorite way to get to know artistic person, no matter who they are or what their story. Everyone has a lesson to share, a beautiful mind to read. Bliss!❤
Despite opposition, we walk on.
Despite opposition, we pray.
Despite opposition, we prolong
The life given to us by grace.
Despite opposition, we muster faith,
We fight on our knees with head bowed.
Despite opposition, we press on
Focused and awaiting a crown.
Despite opposition, with head held high
We know we are stronger than they
Who oppose and divide, the takers of life
And we know God is still the most great.
