"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.


Been Painting

My sister was here for a visit last week. It went by too fast. What fun we had painting together. I started a few paintings while she was here, but I was never satisfied with them. So I reworked, them, changed one almost completely, changed the colors, added to them. I love that about painting, if you don't like something about it, it is easily covered up and fixed.

I wish I was as easily changed sometimes. But God is continually working to make me, make us into the person He created us to be. I am using more and more color in my painting, in my home as well. I think I have found my trademark for my paintings. Blooming flowers. When a flower comes into full bloom it has fulfilled it's purpose. It also brings wonderful fragrance and beauty into the world. That is what I want to do
God's beauty, God's fragrance.

I love this post! Wonderful! I totally uderstand your concept on flowers... I too strive to carry God's beauty and fragrance everywhere I go! The bush is a snowball bush! There must have been 200 snowballs on it this year! It was in full bloom for my shower, so I was able to use the flowers in my arrangements. It worked out perfect with my pink jellybean arrangement. I have pictures of it under my shower post!
Love you,
