Do you want to learn how to water color paint? Well hang on I have got you! I want to tell you my exsperiance with the best water color art supplies and classes for beginners by Emily Lex.
Something God is teaching me lately is to slow down and simplify. He is also teaching me to do one of the things he created me to do and I don't do it enough and that is to create! I am creator and love to create yet I do not make the margin for it. As Abba is teaching me to slow down I am embrasing creating again after a hard 2020 & ruff start to 2021, giving myself grace and the ok to do something relaxing. In doing what I was designed to do I find peace, renewal, reviving my soul and a relaxed release!
I was so happy when Emily Lex's watercolor class kit arrived. What joy it brought to see these lovely supplies as I opened the box. I also received her Watercolor for beginners classes too. Thank you Frontgate Media for supplying this it has truly been a blessing to me on this timely journey.
Emily's truth for today cards are so inspiring and I will be enjoying these so much over time. I love seeing the scripture before me and the cute themed artwork she put with it. Yet another tool to bring balance to my everyday life.
I have been REALLY enjoying her workbooks, online classes that I have been doing at my own pace, and her inspirational truth for today cards! I would highly recommend Emily Lex's Simplified Classes to any one who has never painted before. I love how she teaches the classes from a down to earth basic fun lovely way. I have learned in her classes that sometimes the imperfections make the best art! There is so much grace in water color!
The workbooks are clean, crisp, easy to understand and follow. With every page you are creating a work of art that was simple to do yet looks like you spend hours doing. She brings relaxed effort to it taking the fear of not being good enough or messing up. She takes the lies out of our minds , "I am not a painter, I couldn't make that"!
Here is my first attempt at the hydrangea page in the work book. It did not take me long and it was very enjoyable. As I painted I listend to a few of her techniques videos and was able to pause replaying as needed.
I appericate Emily making this water color learning an enjoyable journey! I look forward to relaxing while I create in more days ahead and learn from her. I recommend everyone try water color at least once in their life and if you do try Emily's classes! It is a great first painting exsperiance and very forgiving and fun.
I want to create with Christ. God is the creator so I shall create for his glory as I am made in his image and so are you!
Reasons I think you should try Emily Lex's Classes!

Will you stop to think about this quote for a moment. "Life interuptions are often divine interventions" a quote by Priscilla Shirer. Think about your life how many times did you see an interuption as just that? An untimely annoyance. A why couldn't it wait? A why me?
We can not predict God's plans. We can not know his blueprints fully nor his full plans begining to end, for only HE sees all the moving parts.
Today if you have an interuption, rest in knowing God has this moment of interpution OKed by him, he has already provided the solution. Tackle each tasks as they come to you with all the furfur and honor as if you do it for him, because guess what, YOU do!
He wants to teach us many things and when you are about to be taught a lesson in life by God he does not typically warn you to embrace for it, that it is coming no, it just happens. As his plan unviels more before you in that interuption LOOK for what he is teaching you in that!
Interuptions can be a treasure! Embrace them!
I thank the Lord for his ordained interuptions I did not see coming.
Never give up your God given dreams, never give up your God given idea, never give up praying for that loved one, never give up the faith, never give up the thing God has called you to do, it is simply never to late to say you are sorry, never give up obeying GOD.
I just recently read It's Never Too Late by Kathie Lee Gifford. It is not the typical book I would choose to read but the title got to me. BIG TIME! I have been pondering lately that very subject.
I will say Kathie seems to be a lovely Godly person, I had no idea of her walk with God in which she openly shares in this book. I thought the book would be a bit more aligned with giving strategy of how to go after that "thing", or what ever it may be but it was still a heart warming read of many of her memories in of which she does weave fantastic encouragement at the end of each story to spur us on.
I did not know it would be a memiore but I have to say it was enjoyable. One major take away was incrediable. She had a God given childhood dream that even after all the viewers thought her career was over when she Stepped down from Regis and Kathie Lee, oh no, it was only begining. She followed what the Holy Spirit was saying to her to go in to the unknown and forfilingl that major GOD given dream after all later in life! This was truly inspirational to me. Her passion and drive to get things done all by it's self was encoaurging to me!
Truly it is NEVER too late!
Below is my favorite quote in the whole book and it is the whole truth!

You see this onion? This is onion is from my kitchen. It was not used by me yet in some delicious way. One day I saw a cute green sprig coming from it. I just let it be to see what would happen. Before I knew it, it grew really long.
It was preprogrammed by God to bioloigically grow on it's on. To me that is amazing. The growth was set on auto pilot basically by the creator of the onion. Every plant on the planet is set to do the same. WOW, if you ask me. It makes me think about human growth. We are always growing physically, mentally, spirtiually. Well most of us anyway, giggle giggle. We are growing either in a good way or bad.
This onion was not given the ground, water & at first no sun light, yet it started to grow with endurance. Why? It was created to do so. It did what it was supposed to do. When you grew as a child did you ever tell your bones or hair to grow? No! Growth is a natural accurance regardless of the environment. Sadly if put in the wrong environment, any living thing including people may not grow right. However, even then something miraclous might happen. Have you ever seen an inner city kid who had all the odds stacked agianst them yet they sought on their own a better and won!
Or a little flower in the mist of a big city grow up from within the cracks of the sidelwak? Growth in most situations will happen in some form or another.
Look at Romans 5:3 AMP 3 And not only this, but [with joy] let us exult in our sufferings and rejoice in our hardships, knowing that hardship (distress, pressure, trouble) produces patient endurance.
No matter who you are God cares about your growth. Do you care about your growth? I hope so! I took this onion since it was fighting so hard to grown and planted it in my little Victory garden I am getting ready for spring. I just had too! I was enjoying wacthing it grow and wanted to tenderly care for it. Since I did take that time, guess what, it might yeiid me more onions to enjoy fruitfully!
So where are you? Do you find yourself in a new place you are not used too as I was recently? Sometimes God's plans do not look like ours and we find ourselves in situations or places we never thought we would be in but you have a choice. To keep resisting the environment and GROW a cold potentially non fruitful heart or GROW an embrace your new situation and actually bloom! Do you see those beautiful flowers up there in the other picture that are growing in a not so ideal place for flowers, yet they grew another reaching towards the sun growing in the direction of it creator. End result, beautiful leaves that bless all who look upon them as they walk by and give glory to God in doing so. Did you know God cares for the flowers? How much more does he care for you in your growth?
You were made in the image of God and you are created to bring him glory in your own unique image.
Will you grow to glorify your maker NO matter where you are? Will you have a growing mindset you can choose!

Today I have invited Shellie to speak to us about beauty in the waiting. Here is Shellies story.
Many of us when everything around us seems to fall apart much like 2020. Want a hurry up and fix this quickly Jesus fix! We are all guilty of that at some time in our lives. After all we are human and we desire good things over the rocky mountain climb. However, sometimes when we rush things we miss the beauty and growth, that takes place in the waiting. I write this from a first hand experience. I would like to share straight from my heart about a journey of waiting that still has not ended! I promise it's laced with grace, hope, and beauty. So grab your favorite warm drink and join me while I share what God has for you to hear.
