There’s something magic about painting with watercolors.

You begin by moistening a piece of paper, dipping your paintbrush into color,

dropping the color onto the page and watching the magic begin.

Like a Rorschach ink blot it spreads across the page,

leaving an indelible mark.

Then it travels its own journey, creating new thoughts,

new adventures, new creations for the painter,

spilling forth from untamed energy.

Maybe there is a reason for its resistance to the artist.

Maybe it simply wants to do its own thing.

Are we often like that?

Do we want to stray from the Creator and live our own way?

Every day, but the Master Artist has a better plan.


About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
