Matthew 10:31 NIV
Jesus proposed another parable to them. " The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that a person took and sowed in a field. It is the smallest of seeds, yet when fullgrown it is the largest of plants. It becomes a large bush, and the birds of the sky come and dwell in its branches."
If a petal is to bloom into greatness, a seed must be sown into the soil.
Gods words are the seeds of truth and your soul is the soil in which these seeds must be planted.
Read the truth and allow Gods words to be cultivate into the soil of you soul. When we dwell on the words of Gods truth, it is like fertilizer for our soul. It helps us to bloom into the beauty of our full potential for the Glory of God alone.
This piece of art is titled, "Petals Sowed" This is an original watercolor done in my home studio for Gods Glory Alone.
I will take refuge in the large bush of Gods love and dwell in the branches of his truth.
Gods Blessing, Debbie

Hey, busy back to work part time at our local elementry kitchen. Too much fun! I have finally compleated the Shimmer Stone technique at a local resturant and I am hoping to get referals and get more decorative painting jobs. Mostly I enjoy doing murals and plaster techniques.
I am starting a art class teaching watercolor painting at a local Christian Book Store, very excited to be in a christian enviornment teaching something I am passionate about.
Sometimes I wonder how I can serve God with this artistic talent he has blessed me with. While stacks of paintings pile up in my home studio, I wonder how I can bless others with my gift. A question not easily answered?
I do trust it brings God joy to see me using my gift, but would truely like to minister through my artwork. Which brings me to Art and Soul Blog.
I hope to inspire others to trust in the gifts God has givin them and use them for Gods glory alone.
I love the colors of fall , in this original art work I traced leaves from the yard and painted them in watercolor. I believe God is an artist at heart, because of all the colors that surround us everyday. Experience the colors and grandure around you, God created a palette with one word and it is never ending and forever changing. Truely awsome and ever inspiring to the artistic soul.
