The Heart Of The Matter

heart_of_the_matter

The winds howl.
The rains fall.
The Christmas season is in full swing.

The Heart Of The Matter is this:
Life goes on.
We somehow seem to pick ourselves up
and dust ourselves off.
We find a way to go on.

This season is no different than any other.

Christmas lights go up and light the world around us.
Christmas trees get put in place and get decorated.
Parties get planned and attended to.

Gifts get exchanged.

There’s one gift, though, that isn’t exchanged, but given.
What is that gift? Tis the reason for the season.

That gift is the gift of salvation, redemption, transformation. We are redeemed by the blood of the lamb.
We are transformed into beautiful souls that go on to bless lives.

Today’s art piece is one of several I will post over the next 2 weeks. Yes, I got behind in the 52-week challenge. I’ll post this one as image 50.

An Abundant Harvest

cornicopia_dsc1126-web

You take care of the land and water it; you make it very fertile. The rivers of God are full of water. Grain grows because you make it grow. You send rain to the plowed fields; you fill the rows with water. You soften the ground with rain, and then you bless it with crops. You give the year a good harvest, and you load the wagons with many crops. Psalm 65:9-11

He feeds us! He brings the rain to cause the crops to grow in abundance. There’s plenty for all. Come as you are!

This is image 45/52 week challenge. With Autumn being here many have harvested their crops. Let’s all gather in thanks and celebrate!

A Different Kind of Supernova

20161028_the-supernova-of-emotions

Going through the life.
It is on a superhighway.
All of a sudden there is strife.
Thinking it is time to get off and find the driveway.

The stress is building.
It is compounding by the minute.
All I want to do is (deflect) fielding.
My mind has a limit.

I feel it well up ready to explode.
The exhaustion comes upon me increasingly.
I feel the grip of its stranglehold.

There is nowhere for it to hide.
The heat rises.
Every part is going through a divide.
Here it is; a crisis.

Inevitably, emotion erupts.

Bright Breeze

icm-movement_dsc1107-web_version
The brightness reaches in and gives just a little squeeze.

Once in a while comes a wonderful soft breeze.

It’s emotionally draining to fight it.

Let it just happen and the breeze on the soft petals hit.

That emotion is a burst!

Don’t fight it, baby steps first.

Notice the soft squeeze is God’s way of giving you a hug.

What a wonderful feeling to know He is there, not a thug.

He loves each of us in a way that is bigger than we know.

Jesus, at Calvary, on the cross, was His love for us as He show!

This is image 43 of 52-week challenge. It is also the weekly challenge for an Arcanum multi-cohort.

Crayons of Yahweh

autumn-dam_

Crayons are fun. I recall, as a kid, pulling out my favorite coloring book, Pluto, Disney cartoon character, and pick a page to color. Once I decided on the page I would scoop up my box of coloring crayons and study the colors briefly to pick which color I wanted to start with.

Not much different than how I create my art today. I start backward, however. I pick the colors I want to use, first. Then, I pick up my camera. Once I decide the composition for my frame and the technique I would like to use, I then focus on the main point and click the shutter and make art.

Today’s art piece reminds me of all the Autumn colors in the crayon box. I love that Yahweh can breathe such beauty around us. Today’s image also makes me think of Yahweh’s breath blowing like a paint brush of colors and at the end of His breath, the result is this!

Reap The Harvest

harvest imageIn life, we come across some sketchy characters. Sometimes, too, it’s hard to know the good from the bad, until one’s true character rears itself.

God’s Holy Word tells us this:

In Luke 3:16-17 it says (to his followers) John answered them all, “I indeed baptize you with water, but He comes who is mightier than I, the strap of whose sandals I am not worthy to loosen. He will baptize you in the Holy Spirit and fire, whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly cleanse his threshing floor and will gather the wheat into his barn; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”

This parable is a metaphor of life. Basically, it is saying that Jesus will separate the good from the bad and the bad will be destroyed.

Also, there’s another parable that is fitting. God’s Holy Word also says in:

Matthew 9:35 Jesus went about all the cities and the villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the Good News of the Kingdom, and healing every disease and every sickness among the people. 36 But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion for them, because they were harassed and scattered, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest indeed is plentiful, but the laborers are few. 38 Pray therefore that the Lord of the harvest will send out laborers into his harvest.”

In Christ’s body, (Christians) we as believers are all considered ministers in the mission field. Every life is like a wheat grain. The body of Christ is called to minister (plant the seed of the Good News of Christ) to everyone. Also, God has called on one’s to reap the harvest (mission field).

On the dreamy side of this art piece; imagine yourself walking through a wheat field. Arms outstretched allowing your hands to sweep across the wheat grass during a beautiful sunset while contemplating life and its joys; as well as its struggles and where you are at this moment!

Where do you find yourself when you gaze in the wheat grains? What will you do about it? Comment your thoughts and let me know. I’m curious.

Life is Hard

Image 40/52 week challenge

You know it is going to be one of those days when you get up and immediately upon looking in the mirror you all of a sudden realize, “Whoa! Is that me in the reflection in the mirror?”

You know the kind of day I mean! You’re moody, irritable, and cranky. You’ve already stubbed your toe on the bed post. You spilled coffee on your suit. You had two flat tires before even getting into the car to drive away to work.

At which point, you start to recall all of the sniggering and remarks of your co-workers who give you a hard time.

You begin all the self-hate and self-deprecating self-talk. There are times when you feel bashed and blown about. Much like the flower in today’s image.

Part of my act is meant to shake you up. It looks like I’m being funny, but I’m reminding you of other things. Life is tough, darling. Life is hard. And we better laugh at everything; otherwise, we’re going down the tube. Joan Rivers

We go through seasons of life. Springtime brings new life, happiness, and lots of fun. Summer brings warm smiles and great times. Autumn brings a slowing down and resting. Wintertime brings a time of darkness and hardship.

What do you do with these seasons of life? It’s your choice. Will you let it beat you down? Or, will you use it to help you grow and build your character into a successful person? I choose growth and character building.

Comment your thoughts and let me know. Inquisitive minds want to know!

Autumn Ripples

autumn ripples imageLife! It goes through changes. In these changes when life transitions, challenges come. In those challenges, life can give in and give up. Or, life can allow these changes to improve and increase its character, much like the autumn colors. The colors give life a vibrancy and beauty that can be enjoyed by everyone who wants to. Colors symbolize lots of emotions. What’s your favorite color and why? Leave me a comment. I’d like to know.

How well do you cope with change? Comment your thoughts, I’d like to know.
