Today the kids in children's church made a thankful banner as we were learning about giving thanks in all things. We were not only thankful for our homes and our families, but for koalas and unicorns and yoyo's! What joy! Then they reminded me of the time we worshiped with paint. Can we do that again, please!! So, yes... next week I will be there with piles of paint and canvases. If it's a nice day again, perhaps we'll fill squirt bottles with paint and have fun on a big canvas, outdoors. Another time we swirled blobs of acrylic paints into beautifully colored hearts and gave them to Jesus. Kids get it.
We worship with music so often that now these words are synonymous. People worship with dance as well. That's pretty accepted. King David did it. So how can you worship with paint? There are probably as many ways as colors. Imagination is so fantastic. When we take time to acknowledge our Maker and thank him for even the little things, this is worship. Think about combining this with color. It need not be anything but swirling color onto a canvas, something abstract as you pray; or you can spend time with Him and go for something representational, maybe something that has been a blessing. Sidewalk chalk, watercolors, fingerpaints... anything works. Just have a heart for God, a heart filled with gratitude and offer it up. Praying your little corner will be brighter and more beautiful than ever. Thanking God for you!
