This post is part of Stream of Consciousness Saturday. The challenge is to just write, without planning and with minimal editing. This weeks subject is to write about what is beside us.
In my case it is my cell phone. I need it to check on the news, (are there any more prohibitions I need to know about) keep contact with my friends, and use my bible app. Today’s bible verse is 2 Cor 4:7-9.
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed, perplexed,but not in despair, persecuted, but not abandoned, struck down but not destroyed.
The treasure mentioned is the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ. I think creativity is part of the glory of God and when He breathed into us he imparted creativity to us.
All around us are examples of God’s creativity. We have baby bunnies on the property. They are just getting to open their eyes. Lets see how big they get by the end of the lockdown.
We are very blessed to have our grandchildren locked down with us because we all share one property.
One bright side of the lockdown is my son-in-law gets to work from home. That means during his breaks, he can spend time with his children while the sun is shining.
I also get to do fun things with the grandchildren. Yesterday we made acorn people.
Today my husband is tidying the store room and I am ….writing.
So my prayer for today:
Thank you Lord for the gifts you have given me, the gift of creativity, my husband, children and grandchildren, enough stuff to fill a store room and the wonderful creativity You have shown in nature. Amen.
