A new mindset for a New Year!


Hey Guys!
We just came from a New Years eve church service. It was very enlightening. I'd already started getting into the mindset of going into the new year with a new frame of mind but the sermon, "Hold No Grudges" really drove it home for me. It was based on the scripture in Phillipians 3:13-14 which talks about letting the past be in the past and moving forward into the future.
I've got some ghosts that keep reappearing on me and I've got to put them to rest. So for those who don't love or respect me like I deserve to be will be bound and thrown out like yesterdays trash. It's always painful when its someone close--a family member or friend. But I've got to move on. I've got things that are expected of me (from a higher power) and it's not in my best interest to waste energy on them with grudges, grief or guilt any longer. With that said, I wish everyone a very happy, healthy and prosperous new year!!!

Much love,
Renecia

Live creatively friends

Hey guys!
I absolutely love being creative. As far back as I can remember I have always been creative. Drawing, painting, writing, being crafty. I could not imagine my life without being that way. Recently I ran across a scripture that says "Live creatively friends" (Galations 6:1), which talks about forgiving someone for their sins without being critical, because at some point in time we ourselves may need forgiveness. I thought that was interesting because I'd never thought of forgiving in terms of creativity. But upon thinking about it, I guess depending on the circumstances of how you were wronged, it may be easier to forgive in a non-traditional sense. Honestly I have had some times when 'sorry' just didn't do it for me and I had to come up with a way to get me past that situation and heal my hurt. Alot of that hurt is released in some of my paintings, along with many, many, many tears. lol! Guess I have experienced 'living creatively' in the biblical sense without realizing it. So my friends, do you have any experiences in living creatively? I'd love to hear about them!

Much love,
Renecia
