From the Fluff of a Prickly Weed to Creativity with Purpose and Passion

I must comment on this image!  I love it!  Just a quick glance as I walked down my driveway, taken by its fluff.  If you don’t know by now, I have an adorable fluffy orange cat and I love fluffy socks – so of course, fluffy weeds are going to catch my eye.  Add in the sun setting through the pine trees from this angle and even a weed looks gorgeous and proud of having served its purpose.

I have so many things happening in the coming weeks with the blog and transitioning what has been a whisper in my heart for more than 20 years! What a journey the Lord has taken me on from then to now! Many, many, ups and downs but this one thing has always remained (besides His love and grace) – to create and to create through faith as a way of praising and of self-discovery. Once we begin this journey, it never ends!! 🙂 Just as we are a work in progress, so is our creative life. It’s taken me 20 years to feel as if I can share this next step in my journey. I know I really don’t have to share with all of you the reasons why…#life. But I will share this reminder – everything is in His time.

 
One of my biggest struggles I would say is setting aside fear. I don’t know why I fear – but I am pretty sure it is what the enemy has used to stall me, to keep me questioning my use of air when it comes to art/creativity. I know, it’s stupid and is why I am posting this here, calling us out. Of course, we all are different and have unique skills and talents, let alone intuition as to the Lord’s guiding.
