Do you like flowers? I do. And I like butterflies, too! But painting them (I’ve never tried butterflies) is not my specialty.
That is why when I decided to paint some flowers I saw on the side of the road, it didn’t surprise me when the final product didn’t look like the picture of the flowers I saw. For some reason I just can’t paint flowers the way I want.
Yet … I’ll keep trying.
So, the flowers in this painting are kinda like a brand new species! That is one of the cool things about art, right? We can imagine, try, make mistakes, but then step back and admire a new thing.
And that is one of the cool things about being a Christian, too! How’s that? Well, so often we try the best we can; we chase our dreams; we fail to reach our goals. Yet, when we step back and look at it all, that’s when we see that God has made something beautiful, anyway … something we had never thought of … something new.
