Faith Never Knows Where it is Being Led [Quote of the Day]

Faith Quote of the Day

“Faith never knows where it is being led, but it loves and knows the One who is leading.” – Oswald Chambers

This inspirational quote by Oswald Chambers was exactly what I needed this morning! As I start my day, I’m fully aware that despite all I’ve planned, I really have no idea what God has planned for my day. I can only trust in His love for me, and walk by faith.

Moments With My Sunshine [painting pottery]

Our finished painted pottery!

Painting pottery with my sunshine (aka my precious daughter) was the highlight of my week!

The process of creating something beautiful was really eye opening, and exciting. All sorts of bare pottery lined the walls—plates of various shapes and sizes, mugs, vases, and cute animals. After deliberating awhile, we both chose a plate, and began to brainstorm as to what we’d paint. My heart was set on a sunflower with a whimsical feel, and my daughter wanted to do something a little more funny . . . she decided to paint a donut with a cute saying— “I donut know what I’d do without you.”

Here are the photos, from start to finish. You’ll notice the before and after photos of the plate are very different in color. That’s because before being placed in the furnace, the glaze is not yet set, and the colors remain faded. We had to come back a week later after our pottery went through the furnace to see the final product.

The day finally arrived to pick up our pottery. Wow! What a difference it was seeing something so faded and almost lifeless turn into a vibrant and colorful work of art! Enjoy our painted pottery photos . . . and always remember that God is making things beautiful in your life. It just takes some time.

“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”—Ecclesiastes 3:11

 

A treasured moment with my sunshine, painting our pottery. We have all the materials ready. We’re ready to begin!

What is Prophetic Art?

by Leila Grandemange

What comes to mind when you hear the word Prophetic Art?

For many years I didn’t have a clear understanding of what it was, until I searched deeper and learned more about each word—Prophesy, and Art. After study, reflection, and prayer, I’ve summarized what I’ve learned into my own personal definition of “prophetic art” . . . Continue reading “What is Prophetic Art?”

First Time Going Live! [what I learned]

So here’s my first time going live on Facebook . . .  just a little welcome to my office, and to the fabulous hope-filled Facebook page, Lord Help Me To Flourish. At one point I wasn’t sure if it was working and I paused, so hang on a few seconds with me, and then I get right back in to it. Oh, and you’ll also meet my amazing Poodle!!! Continue reading “First Time Going Live! [what I learned]”
