Sometimes I think I’m wasting time blogging and taking pictures. Sometimes I wonder if I’m wasting other people’s time expecting them to read what I write and share in the stories I tell. Sometimes I think about walking away from it all and doing something “useful” with myself. And then I think about God. I think about how he likes to write and paint and doing so is never a waste of his time.
Something out of nothing—that is what God does.
He creates and delights in creation. And he has filled our hearts with the desire to create too.
Something out of nothing—that is what art is.
Words and colors shaped into stories and meaning.
Nothing God does is a waste and God likes to create.
So I create too.
And it is not a waste.
