~Branching Out Art & Photography~

I am so humbled and excited at the same time!

There is nothing like pouring your heart into something.

Nothing like creating out of the truths that are unfolding
within your heart.

Truths that you are finally receiving for yourself.

And having others embrace it too
for themselves

These pieces that I created were born out of
the whispers in my own spirit
that were meaningful to me.

My own personal photographs
and words that have been a message to my own heart.
From others, from within, from the Word.

Each of these pieces have found a new home.

A place to speak to another heart.

I love the relationship that forms when the message of something created
speaks to another person's spirit.

It is good to create
and for others
to respond.

The connection is fulfilling to me.
It is good to work hard at something.
And see someone else delight in it.

It is a gift to me from the Lord
that I have experienced in creating these pieces
for others
and in writing the Believe Truth e-course
for others.
There is fulfillment as these projects
that have flowed from the depths
of the Spirit moving in my heart
have gone out to the lives of other people.
Fulfillment is His gift to me
that I have felt over the past year.
As He has given me opporutnities
to speak,
to teach,
to write,
to create,
with love
and passion
for others
to know
that He is
the LORD
and there is
no other.
