master designer.

when we form words to speak from our mouth let them be purposeful.

when we put our hands to work let us do so with purpose.

when we place one foot in front of the other let us be purposeful in our steps.

when our minds process and create new ideas let them be fulfilled for purpose.

            
my friend, darlene, has boldly put out a challenge to each person who wants to stretch their purpose.
to those of us who appreciate a beautiful landscape, a well designed space, a passion for creating beauty.


let not these desires be meaningless or fruitless.


thank you darlene for encouraging us to look deeper and give glory where glory is due!

in darlene's words:

“I AM A MASTER DESIGNER.

I LOVE BEAUTY;
I SEE POTENTIAL AND I WANT TO FILL IT WITH BEAUTY.
I AIM TO CREATE SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL THAT IS WORTHY OF JOY.

DESIGN IS A HIGH CALLING, ONE THAT CAN IMPROVE THE LIVES OF OTHERS, BE A MEANS TO FOSTER RELATIONSHIPS, AND ADD MUCH JOY TO MY FAMILY.

I APPRECIATE FINE AND LOVELY THINGS, BUT THEY ARE NOT MY TREASURES.
I KNOW WHAT IS TRULY IMPORTANT, AND
I DO NOT AIM TO “STORE UP MY TREASURES HERE ON EARTH.”* 

I LIVE TO BRING GLORY TO GOD, THE ULTIMATE MASTER DESIGNER.
HE CREATED BEAUTY.
HE CREATED ALL BEAUTIFUL THINGS.
AND, HE CREATED MY PASSION FOR DESIGN, AND SET THAT JOY IN MY HEART.

EVERYTHING THAT I CREATE,
AND HAVE CREATED,
IS BECAUSE I MYSELF WAS CREATED BY A MASTER.

I AM A MASTER DESIGNER.”

*{VERSE REFERENCE, MATTHEW 6:19}
