I get SO much satisfaction and joy from painting! Yesterday, it was way late in the afternoon before I picked up a brush and I confess to the bed being piled with 2 loads of laundry that needed folding! (of course I got that done so we could use the bed for sleeping!) Priorities!!!
I've been working on capturing expressions. It's not as easy as you might think. And I'm pretty sure that the secret is in the eyes.
You know what they say. The eyes are a window to the soul.
Hubs always tells me he loves it when my eyes smile.
I do too! It indicates an overflow of joy!
You know, how you always made your kids look you in the eye when they were trying to lie to you?!!!! Yes, the eyes tell the entire story.
As Those who have been bought with a price. Those who are heirs of His. Those who are a reflection of HIS glory.......shouldn't your eyes smile more? Shouldn't HIS glory be shining upon our faces and in our eyes.
I've looked around a room of Jehovah, Elohim, Yahweh, Jesus "believers" (I put it in " " for a reason....is it only in word but not in deed) and if looks alone told a story, you'd be reading a story of doom and gloom, sorrow and sadness. Faces that need lifting!
Are we not called out of the world to be a light!
I challenge you to allow HIS light to shine in your eyes this Christmas Season! When you find yourself frowning.....turn that frown upside down! And then feel it in your eyes...are they smiling too?
