"Autumn Vista" - Original Oil Painting **  I find my inspiration in nature.  I love all seasons, but there is something magical about the colors of Autumn that mesmerize me.

And by His stripes I am Healed

 I believe the Lord gave me inspiration to put together a demonstration of what it means to be born again. You’re still the same person but you’re altogether new, changed, a new creature (as in 11 Cor. 5:17 – “..."if any person is in Christ, he is a new creation: the old has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come.”

Like most of us, who need to be washed first, then transformed, little by little, line upon line, precept upon precept into the image of Christ – sanctification. I took this perfectly common piece of old cloth, which most likely, was once a hand towel, washed it first, sometimes mending the piece if needed, then began to transform it into what you see today. It looks totally different, has an entirely different purpose in life. It has changed from being something that wiped dirty hands and faces, possibly even floors and is now something beautiful.

Much like what happens when we say “yes” to Jesus. First He cleans us up, then He begins to make us like Himself by teaching us with His word. We are completely changed immediately and continue to change and grow and develop as He sees fit.

As God made us out of his love, we too should share our love and our GIFTS with others in need of help.  We do not need to reach very far, within our circles of daily life there are many in need.

 Represents the fruits of the spirit as listed in the Bible in Galatians 5:22,23. it reminds us of all we can be .With the help of the spirit within us we all have the power to share the gifts of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. The gemstones rose quartz, chryscolla, lapis, ocean jasper, citrine, sard onyx, sodalite, clear quartz and black onyx are used in various shapes and sizes.

 I Corinthians 13:13 is the inspiration for this necklace. 

And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is Love.

My 3-year old daughter will give me a hug and say, "I love you, too!" or, "Happy Birthday, Jesus!" (any time of the year - her way of praising Him).  That inspires me to keep going when I feel like giving up.   From the mouths of babes ...
