Paint Party Friday: Exuberantly Creative!

"We hold this treasure in earthen vessels
that the surpassing power may be of God and not from us."
2 Corinthians 4:7

And what is this treasure?
I'm sure about the earthen vessels!
That's me and you!
But what treasure do we hold?
God's Word.
The power, the light, the truth of God's Word!
Perhaps when He breathed the Spirit to give us life,
He also gave us His Word.
After all, His Word is creative.
God, the Creator,
is exuberantly creative!

"All of us gazing with unveiled face
on the glory of the Lord,
are being transformed into the same image."
2 Corinthians 3:18

If we focus on Him,
and not on earthly things,
if we partner with Him,
we too can be exuberantly,
enthusiastically creative,
like our Father! 
Isn't that exciting?


Every week I choose one wonderful visitor
who leaves a comment
to receive an ATC from me.
I know it takes so much time and effort
to leave a comment
and I appreciate it soooo much!

This week,
Random.org chose
#37, Bluebeard and Elizabeth of Altered Book Lover.
Elizabeth is soooo generous with her
amazingly detailed tutorials!
I think I shall make her an ATC with a
rocking horse to add to her collection!

  14. Hi Patsy ... Yes, these earthen vessels are frail, chippy, worn ... your images are beautifully powerful yet compellingly delicate.
