I haven’t felt creative lately. No desire to pull out my sketch book and draw or paint. No desire to put a pen to paper and scrawl out pretty words. I really have been struggling, but I am happy that I don’t have to create.

I can look out the window or stand on the deck or sit on the stairs and stare up at a sky perfectly created by a God who loves me, trees with their leaves turned, silver shiny expressing that the sky will soon cry too. The black clouds with blue poking through. The rainbow with a full arch and all the colors after a rough storm.

Then there are the blades of grass, the pretty thistle stretching through the stairs to stab me in the back. The dog chasing a ball while the others look on wondering what sort of masochist she must be to allow a human to control her in such a foul way.

God created it all, every stone unturned, the rocks been flipped, the blades of grass, the dandelions that lay down when they feel the mower approaching, the drops of rain on the car window, wild roses in white, light pink and fuchsia backed by the sound of frogs and crickets as the day goes from dark to light and back again.

I have been writing on here though, almost every day. It’s been dark, scary even, but it’s the pain in my soul being broken raw exposed.

  1. Marisa, God’s creation is amazing isn’t it? But dear you have been creating πŸ™‚ just not in pictures, but in words. Behind you tonight at Kate’s place

    • My words have even been a struggle lately. I feel like I am doing less “creating” and more sharing my emotional rollercoaster! Thanks for popping by once again Christy!

  2. Marisa, so good to read your words. God’s beauty truly is all around us, isn’t it? When we take time to admire His creation, one aspect of His love reflected to us, I think it might just tickle Him a little. πŸ™‚

    I’m sorry it’s been a tough time for you. Sending up a prayer today.

    • Thank you for your prayers! Also, you made me imagine God as the Pillsbury dough boy being poked in the belly! HAHAHAHAHAHA Thanks for that giggle!!

  3. Creating looks different each and every day, so you have been creating even if it doesn’t look like you expect. Happy Friday, friend.

    • LOL Very true! One could easily argue I have been creating uneven mattress wear by laying in bed so much the last month πŸ˜‰ Thanks for stopping by, as always, Kristin!

  4. Hi Marisa,

    Why is this day 14 of 31? Are you up for some writing challenge?

    • I decided to write for the 31 days of July to challenge myself. Have missed a few days, but I feel like i am getting back into writing again, which is a good outlet for me!

  5. Just noticed – the square image in the end of the sidebar, and the follow me icons, are broken. You may want to do something about them.

  6. So glad to see you here. God is the master creator isn’t he? I too love taking in Gods awesome creation. I’m in the 51 spot.

  7. Marisa,
    even writing is creating. Creating is when you take something and give something that wasn’t necessarily there before. Consuming is the opposite. πŸ™‚
    I believe you are definitely creating!
