Yesterday was a made to order perfect day.  God answered prayers for a long awaited typical Texas winter day of 74 degrees and sun.  It felt marvelous.  Terry hauled my small easel outside and I painted on the deck overlooking the pond and Lake Cypress Springs.  I finished up this painting and it is available.  I am beginning to carve out ideas for the show I will do at Mirada Fine Art this summer.

When you work outside like that, you become aware of all the noises and sounds as the wind blows through the trees and the woodpeckers are noisy in the distance. Red Cardinals flutter through the leaves on the ground seeking worms and the fish are beginning to surface in the pond with the occasional splash.  Just standing there gave me the fullness to be still and become in line with God.  This spiritual awareness fills me with creativity and new insights on my canvas as well as in my life. When I paint like this I am often in prayer and listening for Him to guide me with wise choices as I move my palette knife across the surface.  The path is clear if I am being still. It enable me to step forward in the painting and forward in my life.

Having such an open relationship with God sets up the opportunity to have the same with my husband and close friends.  God's guidance in life is available if I open my heart to hear His way.

"My Mouth shall speak wisdom; the mediation of my heart shall be understanding." Psalm 49:3

I Love this and I am so inspired when I find other artist who are inspired to hear a wisper from God in the stillness of creativity.
Letting God's Grace guide us in all we do. Many Blessings, Deborah
