I love the changing of seasons, and this new season of Fall is one of my favorites. The colors, scents, and anticipation of special holiday times ... the cooler weather after the heat of the summer ... candles, pumpkin recipes, and soups.
And I love that we can enjoy God's beautiful creation, and in our own unique ways, we can add beauty to our little corners of the world.
To fully live as the one God crafted us to be.
For we are God's masterpiece.
He has created us anew in Christ Jesus,
so we can do the good things
He planned for us long ago.
"You were born to make art. You were made to live art. You might not see yourself as an artist, but you are - in so many unexpected ways. In what you create, whether poetry or pie, sculpture or sand castle, calligraphy or conversation. It's time to uncover the shape of your soul, turn down the voice of the inner critic, and move into the world with the courage to be who you most deeply are." (A Million Little Ways by Emily Freeman)
