Our creative lives include three areas. Our present moment enjoying the blessings we are immediately receiving or giving. Our revisit to our past and our learning from those experiences. And our creative hope for the future.
Questions, thoughts, and processes can allow us to reflect upon all three of these areas. Why would we want to do this? To become the better person God is seeking for us to be. To serve humanity with a more specific reason by the use of our gifts. And most importantly to worship God for the life we have been given.
I will be including a very important piece with The Seasons for the Soul Blog. This piece will be called “Seasonal Reflections.” This piece will allow us to examine these three areas. You can do this simply by talking to yourself (I wish someone would have told me early in life that it is ok to talk to yourself!) or by “journaling” your responses. Remember “journaling” does not have to be just words! Picture maps, drawings, sewing, cooking, building, paintings, recordings, songs, and many more things are all ways of “journaling”. You may want to have another soul join you in doing your “Seasonal Reflections”. We will begin this week with a few general thought provoking reflections. In the following weeks, the reflection will follow our discussion and creative piece posted in the blog. Please share with me know how you use these reflections in your life.
My creative wish is that this will allow you to better know yourself, your life, and your living. I especially hope that you will grow spiritually in ways you never knew you could! I know God will bless you in this new venture. Thank you for going on this life journey with me. I am privileged to be a part of your story!
In the light of tragedies occurring over the past weeks, we pray and ask for prayers of all of the victims and their families and friends. Our love is with you. We pray for healing.

How do you describe “becoming a better person”?
What spiritual attributes does this include?
There are attributes throughout humanity that describe “becoming a better person”. What are some of these attributes that we witness among various cultures, religions, and populations?
Define your spiritual gifts.
In my everyday life I use these gifts by:
How will I worship in this precious life I have been given, and will my worship intersect with the lives of others?
What celebration methods will I use to show my worship?
