Each of us was made to be creative (yes, every one of us.) We are all made in the image of The Creator, The Author of Life. He created. And so we create as well. You may get creative at the sewing machine or with your scrapbooking supplies or your paintbrush and easel, But there’s a lot more to creating.
It is not limited to the craft room. It might be that you bake scrumptious goodies in the kitchen or you give creatively with your time. Maybe you create an inviting atmosphere in your home or whip up a fun party for your friends. Maybe you are a problem-solver or have the ability to see things from the other person’s point of view.
What is it that brings out the creative side in you? Holidays and special events often get me a kick-start in the creativity department. Any gift-giving occasion will get the wheels turning. How about Pinterest? But, the very best way to get those creative juices flowing is often some still, quiet time. Getting lost between the stacks of books at our local library always provides a boat-load of ideas to meet my creative needs.
Creativity. It’s happening right now, right where you are, right in your very own skin, so pay attention. You just might discover something new and exciting and creative about yourself.
Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness . . .”
“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”
“Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.”
Have thine own way, Lord! Have thine own way!
Thou art the potter, I am the clay.
Mold me and make me after thy will,
while I am waiting, yielded and still.
Adelaide A. Pollard, 1862-1934
A special ‘Thank You!’ to my Aunt Ruthie, who gifted our younger boys with the pottery wheel.
The pictures you see in this post are their first attempts at ‘molding and making’.
