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!
