I used to teach classes in creativity. During one of them a dozen years ago I painted a watercolor that says:
“My life is God’s Work of art!”
Have you ever thought of your life as a work of art? What would it mean to you if you were to look at things through a more artistic lens? How could you get creative in your approach to life?
We are often clear about what inspires us the most – and so often we label it “out of reach.” What about the little thing that inspire you? Is there a way to bring them more into reach?
For me the most important thing is dedicating time to be still and to allow myself to connect to the source of all creativity. I love contemplative meditation. Simply sitting and quietly opening my heart to love, allowing inspiration to flow. It definitely takes practice to learn to open the mind to the flow without trying to control or manage it. So worthwhile too!
I am inspired by beauty of all kinds. It could be a beautiful piece of fabric or a beautiful sound that a bird makes. Beauty feels so deeply nourishing to me that I really make an effort to have beauty all around me. I make the effort to acknowledge beauty when I see it, hear it or feel it. And YES, I do stop to smell the roses – literally – on a regular basis. I think the roses appreciate being appreciated!!
I have many beautiful plants in my home and I enjoy telling them how beautiful they are. I notice they stay in bloom for months and I think it’s because they feel so valued.
An artist usually needs a number of supplies and tools to create a work of art. For me, these beautiful aspects of my life are part of the artistry of my life. I feel creative expression when I think about moving a decorative object from one place to another, or even adjusting the lighting. It’s all part of the canvas of God’s life AS my life.
My life is a work of art and beauty. I celebrate God’s Love as my life today!

Thank you, Jennifer, your message was very helpful today…helping to release energy wasted in ego-centered thoughts of what others might think of my work and instead, use it in polishing my internal mirror so that it can reflect God’s light more clearly.
