I painted this week’s challenge from an actual nest that we found (minus the eggs). As I worked on it, I was awed by the ‘craftsmanship’ of this nest. It is truly incredible. I had fun with this one because nothing had to be remotely perfect, so I felt a lot of freedom in creating this piece! “Fun” and “freedom”; I’d call this one a success towards my goal!
One of my favorite Bible verses is Zechariah 4:10… “Despise not the day of small beginnings.” There are areas of my life where I have to remind myself of this from time to time. These eggs represent each one of those areas.

The craftsmanship of this nest–and your talent–so beautifully point us to the One who created all the delights of this physical world. That great God is able to give us not only eternal life through His Son Jesus but to also infuse us with hope here and now in all those areas where we need it. Thank you for blessing me yet again with your talent and your heart.
Looking forward to seeing what’s going to hatch!
