Painting Options

Painting #1 “The Master’s Peace”

The beauty of this painting speaks of God’s infinite ability to create beauty out of ashes. In every moment of every sunrise and sunset we see God creating a living, moving painting. It’s unique and perfect from each individuals perspective. The things around us, like my paint palette, may look a mess but the view is ordered by God and breathtakingly beautiful. God’s masterpiece is right before our eyes. Oh, how the old country churches make my heart fill with love and joy. It’s where we connect with one another while we seek God’s presence. Finding peace once again as we refocus on what life is about. Does the thought of kids playing and families fellow-shipping at a picnic after church make you smile. Come slow down while you paint The Master’s Peace.

Painting #2 “Because He Lives, I Can Face Tomorrow (The Gospel)”

It is all because of who God is that we can face tomorrow. Not our works but God’s love. It’s because Jesus paid it all. Because of His life, death and resurrection. Because He lives! He didn’t stop there. He adopted us then gave us the power and authority over darkness. We are not perfect but He makes us perfect in Him. Wow, right? He uses our imperfections and testimonies to show Himself to others through us, Jeremiah 29:11-14. Come and enjoy creating this painting while learning your strength, hope and purpose in Christ.
