I have always appreciated rendezvous and traditional crafts created by hardworking men and women ever since my father started taking me to rendezvous and my mother encouraged me to learn crafts while in the boy scouts. There is not always big dollars to be made in crafts but the thought and time that goes into a craft often gives more to the crafter than the money anyway. I have often times had to stop while in the middle of a carving because of a spark of thought that needed to be nurtured while listening to the reading of Charles H. Spurgeon’s sermons. There are days when those sparks grow and burn the pride of my heart and stir me to change for Christ’s glory. Getting out and working on crafts whether it is pottery, writing, carving, woodworking, basket weaving or something else can be a blessing to the soul.
Not only are crafts a blessing for those creating them but the recipients of the crafts are also blessed. A person who receives a handcrafted item knows that it is unique and that emotion was put into the item. There is something about uniqueness that speaks volumes to man. This desire for uniqueness comes from the fact that each person is unique and created by a loving God; there are no machine produced people. Perhaps this is also why I enjoy creating things, because my God is a creating God. By His grace He has given each of us gifts to use to create our own works. What can you create this year? Perhaps it is not a craft, what about a friendship? Go create as our Father in heaven has created and may the Lord bless you richly.

The New Year is here and the time for resolutions is upon us. Getting in shape is always a “top list item” and a great way to accomplish the task is to get up and get out. Go explore your world by hiking.
In the world today we are bombarded with screens and appointments. Noise from the electronics and motors only clutter our brains. We are constantly being told what to think and what to do by commercials and advertisers.
Maybe you can make 2014 a year of balance. Find time to get away from the noise of a technologically advanced culture and find yourself in the tranquility of God’s creation. The sights and sounds of His creation will not be asking you to buy new things are indulge in more stuff. The sights and sounds of His creation will be medicine to your soul and I hope will draw you to contemplation of God and life.
Getting out of the house with a nice hike is both physically and mentally rewarding. Check out an observation made by a better blogger than myself. http://www.fitday.com/fitness-articles/fitness/exercises/outdoor-hiking-why-its-good-for-the-body-and-mind.html#b
