Did you know You can make beauty from ashes?
I saw a painting that used ashes as the paint medium last week, it was beautiful.
Did you know how the song Silent Night was written? It was Christmas Eve 1818 in the Austrian Alps. At the newly built Church of St. Nicholas in Oberndorf, Father Joseph Mohr prepared for the midnight service when he realized his organ had down broken … It came into Father Joseph’s mind to write a new song, one that could be sung organless he wrote the words, “Silent night, holy night, all is calm, all is bright . . . .” Taking his words to his organist, Franz Gruber, he explained the situation and a simple tune was written.
How many times do we over look a blessing when we are discouraged. Songs of life that could have been written, beautiful pictures that could have been painted (even if only in our minds)
So next time life may seem frustrating look beyond what you see and look at what could be!
There is no better time to be creative than during
“A Silent Night”
