My "words" of inspiration! Day of Sharing

You hear a melody drifting slowly towards you. The sound is unique; you have never heard it before. The music causes you to weep; and yet, the tears surprise you. If you could only make out the words!

You have awakened early to catch the sunrise. The warmth surrounds you; yet, there is still a chill in the air. As the light hits the world around you, the colors take your breath away. You've never seen a red so red, a blue so intense, a yellow so vibrant. If you could only take this palette of colors home with you!

You stay up late to catch the moon as it melts across the sky. The size of it amazes you; and it has a brightness that almost blinds. All things familiar become surreal, bathed in that silver spray. You've never seen the world like this, full of mystery and suspense. If only you could capture this on canvas or in wood!

The wind, it sculpts; the rain, it cleanses; the dark clouds intensify the colors. The hail carves; and the lightening excites and burns. The snow softens; and the thunder crashes and shakes. There is just no end to the changes that He makes. My work is to learn, to listen, and to see, hear, and feel. Simply be the person He created me to be. Then, I take a small portion of all of the above; mix it with prayer and rejoicing, and attempt to share it with you.
