The Canvas

I awoke to a beautiful morning full of blush
It was the dawning of a crimson dance
It was as if God the artisan had taken His brush
Streaking the sky with colour across the expanse

How beautifully the birds sang as they nestled in the trees
The branches dark skeleton silhouettes reaching high
A superb vision of His expression for the eyes to please
The book of life unfolded in the yawning of the sky.

A canvas on a new page for you to paint, to tint and shade
Make forgiveness your prime colour when making corrections
Move within your coloured dreams, do not ever be afraid
Choose to apply love and happiness from within in all directions

God is Wonder that we cannot comprehend His way
Be happy to be in His school of artists
Learn to create a colourful canvas for yourself each day.

If you paint the canvas of life or sew the tapestry of life choose yourself colours of vibrancy!


It's hard to be fully creative without structure and constraint. Try to paint without a canvas. Creativity and freedom are two sides of the same coin. I like the best of both worlds. Want freedom? Get organized. Want to get organized? Get creative. David Allen

When I work alone, it can be like dabbling with a canvas. Maybe you paint over bits, and it starts to form its own life and lead you off in a direction. It becomes an intuitive, subconscious process. Lindsey Buckingham

Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can. Danny Kaye

Love is a canvas furnished by nature and embroidered by imagination. Voltaire

Beautiful Picture, beautiful Quotes.

This picture personifies the balance between the ying and the yang. Not quite dark and not quite light out - the balance that the Tao is written about. it is the most peaceful part of the day/night.

Hi Trinity, possibly
my favourite colour crimson skies

Red sky at night shepherd's delight
Red sky at dawn ...

Hope you are enjoying your Sunday!

Interesting idea... that we are co-creators with God.

Thank you all for your visits ... I have been trying to get into my post .. from all day ... and now it is almost midnight.
The problem being the request to make the change over to the new blogging.
I finally gave in ... only to find it cant be done at this present time.
Having made an agreement ... I have had to login with a different e.mail to get here ... if anyone has any suggestions ... they would be greatly appreciated.
hugs to everyone. :o(

This is so very lovely, and very uplifting!
Thank you for adding to my day!

Trinity, I have not made the switch to the new blogger yet...I know I wiil probably to have to it very soon.
So, you tried to switch over only to find out, you cannot do it right now.
I think that was the case with many bloggers...
It is strange you had to log in with a
different e.mail to get to your blog.
I sure wish I could help you, but I cannot.
Maybe someone else can be of help!
What a pain blogger is!
Most of the time now, it does not remember my blogger name, and I have to give it and my password each time I go to reply to comments!
So annoying!
I do see that most bloggers have switched over.
I am going to try and go it this week, when mt hubby comes home from a trip on Wednesday...I am very technicaly challenged...I will need his help, or I will probably mess up!
Hoping this will all get worked out for you!
