Grateful For Simple Things!

What a great day! There was nothing in particular that happened, but it has just been a great day! To be alive is great! To have great health is great! To be in right mind is great! To have a phenomenal family (including biological, friends, and spiritual) is great! To be able to see, hear, smell, taste, love, laugh, cry, and feel (among other things) is GREAT!!! I think we often bypass the simple things in life and look for the complicated luxuries. The truth is, simple things become beautiful luxuries when you remain grateful for them!

So, in my gratefulness, today I was thankful that I am still in my creative niche. Thank YOU LORD that you continue to give me a plethora of ideas daily. Thanks for my grind that I always strive to give back to YOU!!!

Creativity brings about another chandelier necklace today. This was another piece that I made last week, but did not have the time to post about. The chain portion is was a broken belt. The bottom chandelier portion is from a broken bracelet that I decided to cut to get the effect you see. The square wavy stones are green serpentine, and the small round stones are semiprecious rulite quartz. I am partial to this piece. I have been looking for a way to use these particular green serpentine stones for a while, and now was the perfect time.

It's green serpentine!!!!!!

Well...ta ta for the evening folks. I have some cooking to finish for tomorrow's dinner, and studying to do for next weeks class.

Pearls of Wisdom:
As I grew older, I realized that it was much better to insist on the genuine forms of nature, for simplicity is the greatest adornment of art. ~ Albrecht Durer

Be blessed!
