Within the past two years, i had stopped painting not once, but twice – first time for a few months, and the second time for more than six months. Picking up the pieces of my life was very difficult, but i am so glad i did. Each time i persevered, i experienced an unprecedented outpouring of God’s Grace.
The first time when i picked up my brushes again was in September 13, i did the small painting above. It was just a simple vase of flowers to cheer myself up, but i struggled so much to put paint and water to paper that even my art mentor eventually noticed it.
Exactly one year ago, Ben and i were inspired to start this blog as a Thanksgiving to God, our Creator and our Father, the Master of our lives.
When i picked up my brushes again in March this year, i struggled even more to complete my two abandoned paintings. Undeserving as i am, i was accepted into the local art society upon recommendation by my art mentor in June. It’s nothing short of a miracle, and i thank God for His tremendous blessing.
Today, our blog is one-year old. This is nothing short of another miracle and for this, we thank God for all of you!
This little vase of flowers is a reminder to me to keep persevering, to keep painting, and to keep blogging for God – to share His Good News and all of His wonderful works.
For without God, nothing is possible. And with God, nothing is impossible. By R
Many, Lord my God, are the wonders you have done, the things you planned for us. None can compare with you; were I to speak and tell of your deeds, they would be too many to declare. Psalm 40:5 (NIV)
