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 / Hearts <3

When a decision needs to be made, when a relationship is in question, when you are feeling you don’t measure up…REMEMBER… IT’S ALL ABOUT LOVE.

God IS love & we were born out of love.

Everything we do can be a reflection of God’s love for us when we seek the unending SOURCE of the only PERFECT love.

God rescued me from the pit and gave me new life.

I can’t help but live each day with gratitude…knowing what He has brought me from.

One of my favorite passages is below (Ephesians 1).  It is filled with personal promises for each of us from the God who created all things…

We are blessed with EVERY spiritual blessing, we ARE chosen, holy, & blameless before Him…

we are LOVED, adopted, redeemed, forgiven…& we are set apart according to His purpose as He makes known to us the mystery of His will…

as a plan for the FULLNESS of time, to UNITE ALL THINGS in Him.

I cling to these promises…and they are for ALL who are in Christ Jesus.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us[b] for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known[c] to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ 10 as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.

11 In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will, 12 so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory. 13 In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him,were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, 14 who is the guarantee[d] of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it,[e] to the praise of his glory.

It’s all about love…I guess that’s why I have a “thing” for hearts.

Blessings,

Sue
