Cupcakery/ Bakery Day!

IMG_3530

Cupcake/ Bake Day!  We had the best time making and designing and then eating cupcakes!

  For a little glimpse into the art camp mornings, we first meet in the sunroom. ( pic above) and have a little devotional.  I've picked out some of my favorite verses for the week and then talk about them and have a little prayer.  It's simple and sweet, but I do believe with my all my heart that God is the essence of all creativity and design and beauty.

And the more we grasp that fact... the more our lives will be filled up with joy!  So today.... the verse that I want written on my children's hearts and my own heart as well is... Zephaniah 3:17  "The Lord your God is with you. He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you. He will quiet you with His love. He will rejoice over you with singing."

To just think about that verse..... let it soak in.... can be life transforming. 

So, on to paper and paint and creativity and remembering how much God delights in us... in our creativity and imagination and painting!
