as most of you know i am a lover of ALL things art...whether it be music, painting, scrapbooking or even handmade jewelry.  i am also always on the lookout for artsy things, beautiful things, inspiring things...and if your a true artist at heart like me, we can see those things around every corner.

as i was on my early sunday morning walk a few weeks back, i was just in awe.  i like to take my camera with me to capture the beauty that i live in.  i just adore those walks and the picutres that are a result of them.

as i was walking and looking around it hit me like a ton of bricks...isn't God the BEST artist ever!!!  that's really been on my mind so much since then.  everything He created is perfect in it's own way.  oh, to be an artist like that.  everything He touches turns out to be pure perfection.  His canvases stretch as far as the eye can see and beyond, so much so that we can even begin to comprehend it.  God has a creative love affair with his art and He knew exactly what he was doing!  when Jesus is in the center of your creative world, life can be in your art...and you can start a new beginning over and over and over again!  how awesome is that?!?!?

as i look around now i seem to see God the beautiful colors of the autumn leaves, in the absolutely perfect tiny feet of babies, in the baby bunny that huddles down in the bush as i walk past...look around today, where ever you are, and appreicate the beauty in every single thing around you!!!

this snail, so tiny and delicate, is such a beautiful representation of the perfectness of  Gods artistic talents...i saw this little guy on my sunday morning walk...

and the sun shining through the trees on a early fall morning...breathtaking...

For He commanded and they were created' Psalm 148:5

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters' Genesis 1:1-2.
