Finished Christmas Craft

Just to show the finished product from a previous post. Have fun, everyone!❤

Getting Crafty

Wanna kill about 6 hours? Lol Seriously, my daughter and I spent about 6 hours total (2 Saturday and 4 today) working on these two crafts. The penguin family still needs their wings and feet glued on, but their houses are adorable. (The craft is from Youtube and the houses are plastic bottles.) And we had some good learning and bonding time. God is very good and we have a lovely Christmas memory. Oh how we love celebrating Jesus’ birthday!!❤❤❤

Blessing in the Tank

God bleased us with a sweet little tetra fiah baby in our fish tank. What a blessing! The newest member of our family is so teeny tiny, the perfect miniature of her momma. And I was struck again with amazement at our incredible Creator and the fact that the greatest artists can produce a detailed miniature. The hand has to be steadier, the paint perfect, the design delicate, eyesight meticulous, etc. And here is our new baby fish, the perfect artpiece. And I praise God, Master Artist!❤❤❤

Art, Children & A Party

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!!!!😄❤

New Art Surprise Blessing

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!!!!❤

Journaling

Blessed with a wonderful teacher, she armed me at a great age for journaling. It was therapeutic, lovely, an outlet for everything inside, a place to voice it all other than just my songs and piano. It fit me like a glove. And now, as I write, I journal to some degree. My goal now, however, is not so selfish as it once was. It is loftier now. I wish to convey Jesus through my work, whether it be my art, my music, my writing, my teaching, my parenting, my sports, anything. I am not the goal anymore and I find the older I get, the more it is less about me but so much more of God. He is everything. I am a little girl, lovingly designed and made by God, but I am nothing at all without Him. No one is. The greatest “stars” and billionaires on the planet are nothing either without God. God is the why, the who, the where, the way. And Jesus is the key to salvation. So I write Jesus as much as possible. I try to be like Him n in any small way and away we go. Praise God!❤❤❤
