The Life of an Artist

The life of an Artist. It’s not easy. We are determined to share, our thoughts, our creations, our songs. Because that is when we feel alive. We live and breathe to share.  We couldn’t bottle it up if we tried. It would be like shaking a soda bottle and watching it explode. The top would blow off. That is what it’s like if we don’t share.Artist

Truthfully, you don’t even have to like it. You don’t even have to pay us for it. We will share for free, because that is how we feel alive. We are creating – something. Just like God created us. He pours into us and we have to pour it out or we will overflow! God is the Master Artist. And He created everything with the Word. He spoke it and it came to be.

In the beginning God CREATED the Heavens and the Earth. Good news – the Creator of the Universe lives in you! Let the creative out of you, make it, sing it, paint it, write it  – go have some fun! 😉

You Are Proof that God is an Artist

Daddy God is an Artist. And we are His children. The Creator of the Universe who made the Heavens and the Earth spoke the Word and it was. And you are proof that God is an Artist. He made us, and if you are a born again Believer He put His Holy Spirit in you to create. Let it out – feed your creativity today!

Are you an Artist? A Songwriter? A Painter? A Craftsman?  What are you creating today? Stir up the Spirit and begin today – make something wonderful!

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. (Ephesians 2:10 NKJV)

I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well. (Psalm 139:14 NKJV)

How Do You Measure Joy?

I had a very good afternoon today. There is nothing like being around creative people and other Artists. It just makes my heart jump! I had the pleasure of joining some of Janesville’s finest Musicians, Storytellers, Authors, and Artists today at a local Art Gallery in town. And the joy was contagious today!

The room was full, the ambience was beautiful. Alicia Reid has a beautiful Gallery, Raven’s Wish, that features creations from over 70 local artists. And add to that tea and cookies, jazz music, and a room full of shoppers.

Let me share my most precious memory of today. In the crowd was a group from a local home for mentally challenged individuals. I love their spontaneous joy and laughter and lack of inhibitions. I worked in the school district in Special Ed for 3 years. And I have to say, those kids taught me so much about unconditional love and joy.

We we did a medley of Christmas Carols and my favorite memory was listening to the crowd sing along. It didn’t matter if they had a microphone, sang on key or off key, it didn’t matter who sang or who  lead or who made mistakes. It was pure joy, and it was contagious!

How do you measure joy? For me, it was the song in the heart of the crowd today. 😉
