Can I share something with you? One of my very favorite characteristics of God is His creativity. I cannot resist pulling over to snap a picture of a beautiful sunset. I stopped just a few moments ago to admire the beautiful blooms on the dogwood tree in our yard. And I could stare out over the ocean for days on end if I lived a little closer to the shore.
The beauty we see all around us is created by God Himself! God, who spoke the world into being and creates the most breathtaking views for His children to begin and end each day with admiration and praise, also created you and me. And you know something else pretty incredible? Because you and I are created by this wonderful creator God, and made in His very image, we get to create and admire that very same beauty!
I think that's the reason why we love lovely things. We love to scroll through Pinterest and Instagram looking at beautiful photos, we choose to decorate our homes with lovely art and intentional design, and we admire the creativity of others - because deep down we love to celebrate the beauty we see reflecting our Creator.
That captures just a little bit of the why behind each and every art print you can find in the Life Lived Beautifully Shop. These prints are not just pieces of paper with happy colors - they are full of Scripture, words of encouragement, the truth of the Gospel, and messages of hope. We pray that each print you find in the shop reminds you to pause, reflect on the goodness of God, and praise Him for His beautiful handiwork all around you!
Grab one (or a few) for your home, save some for end of the year teacher gifts, tuck a few away for a graduate heading off to college who will have plenty of blank walls to fill, or give one as a Mother's Day gift this spring. Hide Scripture in your heart with these reminders and bless someone else who may need the encouragement as well. We pray that each print brings a smile to your face and a moment of praise in your heart to the Lord!
