“We are here to be excited from youth to old age, to have an insatiable curiosity about the world. We are also here to help others by practicing a friendly attitude, and every person is born for a purpose. Everyone has a God-given potential, built into them, and if we are to live to its fullest, we must realize that potential.” Norman Vincent Peale
This is my wish for you and myself during this Christmas season for for the New Year! Much love and blessings to all my family and friends.
I am taking a colored pencil class and we are drawing a fig leaf. This project took a few days, as I spent a few hours each time, working on the project. i started off with a new velvety leaf and by the time I got to the end my fig leaf was dry and crumbled up. Therefore my colored pencil fig leaf evolved through the days just like the real leaf.
This fig leaf reminds me of our lives with Christ. We can either be velvety fresh and green and always ready to learn new things through his word or we can become dried up and crumble if we let the enemy in our life and walk away from his word.
Spend time each day in his word and refresh yourself with his life flowing water (word).
Even though I don’t like eating figs I did enjoy drawing this leaf!
