Now is the Right Time

Love this… is it not the perfect truth?

Time


Ecclesiastes 3: 1-12

1 For everything there is a season,a time for every activity under heaven.

2 A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest.

3 A time to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down and a time to build up.

4 A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance.

5 A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time to embrace and a time to turn away.

6 A time to search and a time to quit searching. A time to keep and a time to throw away.

7 A time to tear and a time to mend.A time to be quiet and a time to speak.

8 A time to love and a time to hate.A time for war and a time for peace.

9 What do people really get for all their hard work?

10 I have seen the burden God has placed on us all.

11 Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.

12 So I concluded there is nothing better than to be happy and enjoy ourselves as long as we can.

Thoughts on Creativity


Hope everyone had a great Easter and I pray that we don’t just think about God and Jesus on Easter and Christmas only.

I feel like I have been a little MIA lately.  Sometimes I get in a creative funk. I do that with my sewing projects and my paintings pretty much anything I get excited about. Example: I wanted to learn how to take better pictures so I bought a pretty nice camera – I only used it for about a month or two and now it’s been about 6 months since I have touched it.

I come up with this great ideas and then I put all my focus and attention for the next however many hours it take me to finish it and sometimes I can spin multiple ideas off one but then I burn out. I get bored with it and I won’t touch my camera,  sewing machine or a paint brush for weeks. It’s not that I don’t think about it.

I should go get my camera out and practice or learn something new. I should go paint a picture or I should go sew something, I should go write on my blog… etc.

I am going to try to be better. I would like to combine all the things I like to do into one. It’s hard though. Someday, I feel like when I get married and have kids, I won’t have the kind of time I have now and I need to start getting better at using the time I have now, so one day I won’t look back and think… ” I should have (sewn/taken pictures/painted/journaled…) more.”

What I need to do –  is not put so much pressure on myself to come with the BEST idea or project and just do it because I like to and do it for the sake of doing it.

Sometimes, the best ideas come from starting something and rearranging it and just making it as you go.

In fact, I think I will sew or paint tonight – maybe I will bust out the camera I paid a lot of money for too!!

Does anyone else ever feel like this??

Side note:

This looks like a movie I would love…
