Day #3 - Create (31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes Challenge)

I'm joining in the 31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes Challenge from Five Minute Friday! This means I am taking the theme given, setting the timer for 5 minutes and just writing.You can check out the whole series here.  

Today the word is Create...

I love to make things. Sometimes I feel like I've had to defend my artistic tendencies. Those of you are a bit more practical, tend to question the necessity of a creative touch. 

The truth is that I think my creativity tendencies are a gift to be used. God, who is the ultimate creative geniuses, called things into being. Not just practical, useful things...but BEAUTIFUL things. All of nature is a testament to this. He filled the fields with flowers of the most spectacular colors. Even the birds that fill the sky are masterpiece. 

It seems as if every detail was carefully attended to. There is even beauty in a stark and bleak winter day. 

This is why, my friends, the next time I add sparkle to an ordinary event or take up my coloring pencils when I should be doing my laundry...please don't disregard my need to create something. Even this blog is an expression of my creativity.
