Looking out on the morning – considering the creative process…

Friday morning I awoke early with ideas for the 2021 calendar to be designed.  The theme, I believe, will be the fruit of the Spirit from Galatians 5:22-23.  In that sweet state between sleep and awake, the Lord began dimly to show me what it will look like.  Once I was up and at my desk I sat watching the day break come into the morning sky – slowly, but surely – the new day approached, the light brightened and things that were unseen, became visible.  Looking out of my window the outline of the trees, at first black against the sky, soon began to appear in delicious color and greater detail.  That’s how this creative process seems – first an idea, a slightly out of focus picture; then bit by bit the light begins to brighten and ideas/details begin to appear.  As in Genesis 1, “And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.  Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God said that the light was good….”  I am so grateful that my Lord, brings the light each morning and into each of the designs He gives me. 

Proverbs 4:18  “But the path of the [uncompromising] just and righteous is like the light of dawn, that shines more and more (brighter and clearer) until [it reaches its full strength and glory in] the perfect day [to be prepared].”

In these unusual times, I encourage you to use this time to visit with the Lord and enjoy His beautiful creation, which includes you, my friend.

Blessings on your week 💜💜

  1. Hi Deb! So glad to have you join the ranks of this blogging community! And your words perfectly capture the creative process! The analogy of daybreak, the Creation and sitting down to work on a calendar is spot on. I’m glad to help you along this journey in any way I can! And like any creative process, it often comes down to one foot in front of the other.




  2. Morning is my favorite time of day. I frequently get up when the birds are just beginning to sing. Grab my coffee and sit in my favorite sunrise-watching spot in the living room. I also look out at my White Robe hydrangea planted in a pot just outside my window. Growing this type of hydrangea in the north was a great challenge. Now I grow them in pots and am very pleased by the results. Flowers are definitely one of God’s best ideas. Created mainly for our pleasure.


  3. Hello, Deb – Beautiful share of your thoughts. It’s beautiful here in Florida. The 5 acre lake we live on – peaceful and lots of birds. Enjoying all of God’s creations.
