Creative Life Part 2

I have been sharing some of the book I have read called "The Creative life by Alice Bass" I will share some more now... This part is called Creative Foundation: Restoring the Divine Connection.
...(Alice Bass) "We all have a snapshot in our mind of who is creative and who is not. Under the 'not' category we secretly put businesspeople, mothers, computer specialists, telemarketers and Christians. In this way we limit our definition of creativity to artistic expression. Creativity is a necessary ingredient of art, but it is also required for life. How much imagination does it require to get through a job interview? Or listen to coworkers' complaints? Or explain to your kids why they can't watch HBO after nine o'clock in the evening? What about being in this world but not of it? We all need tons of creativity, and creativity is available to all of us at all times. "...
(this is the author speaking...not me. Wish I had a women's group to belong too...)... 'Watching my women's group break for coffee, I was fascinated by how carefully each of the women chose just the right cup. It was as if they were thinking, Which one expresses me right now? Who am I today, the tailored tan teacup with an elegant black stripe? Or the 70's earthenware with a single rose? Maybe the cobalt blue with gold stars...
The image of the eternal in us makes us want to express ourselves in the details. We were made for heaven, and once we get there, our joy will be complete. The pleasures of heaven will take us beyond our five senses and fulfill all of who we were created to be.
But even as we are reaching for the perfect cup, we pull back our hand. (Did someone see me? I shouldn't express my self with a cup! How silly.)
We stop wanting to express our uniqueness because we are trapped in our flesh. And yet it is the eternal One who has encased us in these bodies...' ...

Imagine the pleasure of our Heavenly Father when we delight in choosing A COFFEE CUP...So, go ahead... pick the big pink travel mug (I did...lol) sing joyfully off key!... wear blue fingernail polish.... We are His creation and He delights in us, shouldn't we find delight in ourselves and who He created? I'm trying to...

Hope everyone is havin' a rockin' Tuesday! Tootles!
