Creative Moments of Delight

I love the moment this picture captured. NOT that my mouth was going, but that my son and grand kids are all doing a craft together. My granddaughter and I went outside and found cool leaf and fern shapes. There were plenty around and she chose her favorites.

I supplied the acrylic paints, paper and crayons. It was a wonderful time. We talked, painted, and enjoyed each other.

This is what my granddaughter created. She went for the tie-dyed look. I love it with all the colors.

"You can be sure that God will take care of everything you need, his generosity exceeding even yours in the glory that pours from Jesus." Philippians 4:19

What craft does God want me to do? But, Lord....I don't have....

He has supplied all that I need to do whatever He calls me to do. And you know what's best? He enjoys creating that talent with us. He delights in those moments.

I enjoyed you sharing your family time with us Karen. That's one of the most rewarding part of families.
I have a 20 year old grand daughter who always wants to give me a big hug and a kiss when we see each other. It's really nice. - Dave
