Creativity Overload!

This morning I had a huge urge to just be creative. It started with these 4 canvases that I had leftover from previous projects and decided that I needed to use them. So, I thought that I would get the kids involved and let them paint them and then I would write their first and middle names on them and then hang them on the doors to their bedrooms. They did a terrific job painting them and it kept them occupied for over an hour. In the meantime, I was able to paint a canvas that I had just laying around.

A few weeks ago Pastor talked about the Armor of God in Ephesians and how important it was to pray daily to have the Armor upon our family. So, I took the canvas and painted the scripture on it and placed it by the front door to our house. The kids saw me painting it and asked what it was and I read it to them and told them how important this scripture was to our family. I hope that this reminds me to pray the Armor of God over my kids and myself everyday!And then of course I had the urge to take the kids easter pics...on a whim as usual! I hadn't planned on doing it but they were in such a good mood and the weather was perfect outside! You can see them below!
