As I walk around the garden at our little Monet Monet on Thirty A each day – I am constantly reminded of Claude Monet’s paintings of the Water Lillies and the beauty of them. They’re each an incredible work of art – full of brilliant colors, yet, surrounded by dark shades of blacks, blues and greens which totally enhance the lighter shades.

And yes, if we’ll think about his paintings, we can picture and be reminded of the water gardens in our own lives.

So with this thought in mind, it encourages us to be mindful that we have a purpose and design for our life, and yes – how even when we focus on the darker portions of our painting, we’re gently reminded that our God, the Artist of our life, has yes – intentionally allowed the blues and greens and even the grays and blacks, to be brushed on our own canvas for a reason.

When we look back at past difficulties – we can clearly see how He uses these shadows to make our lives richer.

We’ve all had so many we’ve had to deal with, yet, we can now see His perfect handiwork – creating a brilliance of color and beauty – all from our pain and suffering.

Our Artist – He uses a multitude of techniques in our lives to help us to become the people He intends for us to be.

So, just like the water lilies in Monet’s painting, He keeps the leaves and petals in our lives afloat through the muck, through the wind , and yes, through the rain that are a part of the storms we have, and yes, the storms we will face.

The fact is, water lilies survive April showers and worse,  So will we.  We’ll survive with His help and His grace, for yes – our hearts are full of gratefulness to Him for we know with all our heart – no matter what we did, what we do or what we will do in this life – it won’t always be perfect – but we can always trust, that yes – grace trumps karma.

No matter the time in our lives, we can count on this one simple truth.

Friends – we are loved by love Himself. He loves us big and He loves us strong, and yes – love wins period

“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord you God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior”  Isaiah 43:1-3
