I am participating in the #write31days worldwide event for the month of October. I chose to share 31 days of art, though I haven’t posted each day – I wanted to mesh Tea & Word each Tuesday until November rolls around.
Did you know that God made you and was pleased with you?
He delighted in all of His creation, in fact. He is the ultimate #artist and Genesis says He was “pleased” each day of the week (which He created too).
There is a “pleased” for all 7 days. What if we lived like that?
Instead of pointing out all the flawed things. All the negative. (Because there will be that if you LOOK for it). What about intentionally choosing to live fully right where we are, and be pleased with what we have and who is in our life?
Be pleased with what’s good and then go share your pleasure with the world.
Don’t keep lovely to yourself. The hurting world needs that. Not more hurt. Let’s choose to stop complaining and talking bad about other people, even if we feel they “deserve” it.
I realize we can’t turn a blind eye to evil. I am not saying to do this. But we can choose how to spend our time & energy, the attitude we have, and not mention God says even if we do the right thing but it isn’t in love then it is like a clanging symbol in His ears. Ouch.
Let’s make the most of our time by building others up eh? Have a blessed one, friends. I hope you enjoy the art and link up below if you want!
One thing I love about art is that it usually requires one to get risky. Get a little messy. It is like life. A series, a journey of trial and error. Of seeing what works and what doesn’t.
The cool thing about art is, sometimes the very thing that doesn’t work becomes what you want instead.
Those little Lunchable® trays come in handy to use for things like this!
I am a sucker for earth tones as much the next outdoorsy, vintage-loving mama.. yet I can’t help but get sucked into this world of bright, vivid colors.
We used one of those fake hair bun things you find in stores, to make this print on paper. The Dollar Tree® has them for..well..a dollar.
With art, you are constantly trying new things. That thing that didn’t turn out? Try looking at it in a different way. I wonder what God looked like when he was coming up with all of creation one detail at a time.
“And God was pleased.” each day of the week He made.
Find in it Genesis 1& 2 in the Bible.
“And God looked at them with pleasure and blessed them all.” Genesis 1:22 TLB
