Beauty for Ashes

The Lord is really re-birthing my love for art and creating.  I have never been so drawn to His word and the gift He has given me like this before.  Yesterday I stopped by the Illustrated Faith blog, and the post referenced a blog called Gracelaced.  From what I have read and explored there, she has a beautiful heart for God and amazing creations inspired from His word.  She inspired this piece as I desire to practice some watercolor techniques and experiment more.  I felt led to scribe Isaiah 61:3 and thankful that He replaces our ashes, mourning and sorrows with His beautiful gifts of beauty, joy and praise.   What are you thankful for today?  Be blessed today!

4th of July

While I was creating this piece for July 4th, I was experimenting with my watercolor background.  As the red and blue slowly starting mixing into a faint purple, God was speaking to me about that color representing royalty.  We are a nation created under His royalty - under the one true God.   America has always been a wonderful "melting pot", a mixing of culture and peoples; a great country founded on freedom and hope.  As we celebrate our independence, I pray we remember our heritage as a nation under God.  I pray blessings over our leaders, and all the men and women who serve to fight for our freedom, both physically in military service and spiritually in prayer.
