This is the day ... to get creative.
This is the day ... to get creative.

Lots of people tell me they don't have a creative side. The truth is, almost everyone has a creative side - you just have to make time to find it. Once you do, you may be surprised what you can create. I have lots of items to choose from but this piece probably says it all. "This is the day that the Lord has made." If you know the rest of the verse - made popular by the song - "I will rejoice and be glad in it." I'm always glad when I have a few hours to sit down with a paint brush and let my creativity flow. Why not join me some Saturday? If there's not a group meeting that day, we'll get together and paint anyway.
