Art Friday: Flowers of joy


When I am feeling down, I look at flowers — flowers say joy like nothing else. One cannot feels sad when you look at flowers like these. Perhaps that is why flowers are given to those who are unwell and in hospital. 

Todays art has been created by God for all of us to enjoy. 

Whilst I cannot send you all a bunch of flowers, these, I do hope, will brighten up your day and bring you as much joy as they do to me. 

All these flowers (excluding the red ones) are from garden. My garden is busting with colour at present and when I come home after a day at work, it is such a beautiful welcome to see.

One of the marks of a godly woman is that she takes responsibility for her soul's need for joy and delight. A woman is a conductor, who leads the orchestra of her surroundings in the songs and music of her life. God is a God of creativity and dimension, and so He is pleased when we we co-create beauty in our own realm, through the power of His Spirit.

It was a profound realization when I understood that I could become an artist with my very life.” 








These beautiful red flowers are not from my garden, they were bought to add colour to my home. I often buy flowers (Aldi is a great place for inexpensive flowers) and they really do add a splash of joy  to any room.

    1. I just went for a walk around my garden this morning - it was still quite early and very peaceful - just me and the birds singing. It was so calming to look at all the flowers and enjoy their beauty. God knew when He created flowers what impact they would have on us - they do touch our soul.
