Vast divine artist
I rest between your shoulders
Peaceful and secure
Do you ever think of yourself as a work of art? An intricate and beloved work of art? I do.
It’s very freeing for me, knowing that I am one-of-a-kind, unique and carefully thought out and crafted. My life has an amazing purpose and I have been given the privilege to create art together with the greatest artist of all. Wow.
I’m also overwhelmed by the peaceful security I find resting between the shoulders of He who made me. Not only was I created a masterpiece, but also for intimate relationship with Him.
Do you think you’re a piece of art, a one-of-a-kind, unique and individual? How does that make you feel?

Olá, Stacy. Me sinto como você, uma obra de arte de um artista muito detalhista, inovador e original. Penso que nós e a natureza somos a expressão da diversidade e criatividade de um Ser superior a nós humanos. Lindo poema e reflexão, parabéns!
Olá Adriano. Pois e. A coisa maravilhosa e que nao existe mais um de vc ou eu. Todos nos somos unicas e originais.
Lovely as usual, and wise.
Oh, thank you so much Kate. You’re so sweet.
Sometimes I feel like that – a piece of art, and then there are those darker days that I feel like watercolors in the rain, when all that I thought I was, washes away. Those are the days that I depend on my spirituality/faith to carry me through.
Hmmmmm, watercolors in the rain. Where all of your colors drip and smudge into each other eh. Love that you mentioned that you depend on your faith at those times. It’s so important to not let feelings lead your life. If that were the case, I’m in trouble. hehehe.
Beautiful, Staci. I rarely think of myself the way you described – although that truth from God’s Word. Thanks for giving me something to think about today. And I can definitely use the rest…all kinds. xo
Ohhhh, thanks Kate.
You are a work of art my friend. There’s absolutely no one like you. You’re one of a kind, an original, unique.
I guess you’re on summer break now eh. I’ve been in Canada for a few weeks and will be here until the 20th. Busy.
Hope you had a great 4th of July.
I’m not sure that I’m a work of art, but I do know that I am a work in progress. Hopefully I’ll turn out alright at the end of it 🙂
Oh Heather, I’m positive you’re a work of art. There’s no one like you. I too am a work in progress. Will be until I leave this earth. hehehe.
Hope you’re doing well.
I am, Staci, I hope you are too! ❤
I’ve actually considered this concept a lot lately. I don’t necessarily view us as completed masterpieces but continual works of art quite capable of becoming masterpieces. It helps me right now, when looking at a person very close and dear to me, as she struggles with morals and keeping herself on a path of righteousness – that her failings due not make up her totality – she is still a work of art… God’s just not done with her yet.
That’s beautiful Carol. Thanks for sharing. I like the thought of us being continual works of art, capable of becoming masterpieces.
Staci, it’s not possible to be a songwriter without being a kind of instrument for other people … a functioning work of art, whose purpose is to connect. tony
Beautiful Tony. I like that – “a kind of instrument for other people”. It’s like you’re saying, “I’m here to serve you and offer you something beautiful.”
