I'm so glad you stopped by! I had 27 precious girls come paint tin my studio last friday. We had so much fun! I cut and sanded boards for each girl, designed a collage, gave them glue and paint, and then watched them create! Don't kid yourself, I could ever have done it without my daughter KK. She strapped on her apron and made sure the girls had brushes, water, paper towels, and lots of encouragement! I thought it was fascinating that each girl had the same pieces to collage, yet their finished products were so different. Their artwork was completely unique to their personality, color choice, and design style. Twenty seven girls with their very own masterpiece.
I so enjoyed watching the girls carefully and thoughtfully put each piece of their collage in just the right place. They boldly mixed colors and chose the exact shade of pink or green to display their personality so perfectly. Then to see their faces filled with pride and satisfaction as they held their finished work for the camera.
I couldn't help but think about how God must have felt as He created the heavens and the earth. He created light to illuminate His design, and He called it day and the darkness He called night. He made heaven and earth. He then covered the land with all kinds of trees and breathtaking flowers of every size, shape, and color. Then He made the sun to light the day and the moon to shine at night. He made the stars also. He created every spectacular bird and every mind blowing creature on land and in the sea. And if that was not amazing enough, Genesis 2:7 reads "Then the Lord God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and mad became a living being."
There is no amount of paint of glue that can even begin to create anything as magnificent as what God Almighty has made. And more importantly, no one but God can reathe life. He made you in His image. He breathed life into you. In Psalm 139:14 it says you are fearfully and wonderfully made. In the last verse of Genesis chapter one, it says after God created man, He looked at what He had made and saw that it was very good.
Today, rejoice that He made you and He made you perfectly! Love love love Ruthie
