Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. ~ 1 Peter 4:10

Busy Creating!

Now that preschool has started I'm enjoying a little more time to work on my painting. I've been busy working on pieces for the two classes I'm taking with Wyanne. I'm enjoying them so much. She is a great teacher; very encouraging, inspiring, and full of knowledge! I'm also still trying to finish up a few paintings I began this summer. Here is one I just completed called A New Creation!

It is mixed media on canvas. At the top of the piece it says "Just as a caterpillar casts off it’s old self and transforms into a butterfly, a new creation of beauty….We also, who are in Christ become a new creation; the old is gone, the new has come!" At at the bottom, I put the verse is 2 Corinthians 5:17, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!"

I love how God created the caterpillar to turn into an elegant, beautiful butterfly, often with amazing colors and details. I think this is such an awesome illustration of how Christ transforms our lives!

I'll try to post more soon! Thanks for looking!!
