Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

Doodle 101 / the Sparrow

Doodle101/Sparrow/Sue Carroll

I often think of a story Priscilla Shirer shared in one of her teachings about the sparrow.  She said that “in Biblical times” sparrows were worth very little…in fact…less than a little… they were worth nothing.  When purchasing readily available sparrow at the market, shop keepers often sold 2 for 1 and “threw in” a THIRD for NOTHING.  Priscilla is a powerful story teller, and this principle was driven home for me as she described this process with great passion…helping me to see that if God cares for something man values as worthless…He certainly cares for me!  What good news for this world full of sinners.

Happy doodling!
