Creative is not only something
we intend to do
with paint and brush.
It is not an expression
we go to a museum
to contemplate.
It is not contrived only
beyond the framework
of the ordinary.

Creative is daily.
It is illumined in the work
of common forgiveness.
Creative is found in that conspiracy
of grace we call joy.
It is in the daily honing and preservation
of a pure heart.
Creative is the transformative power
of gratitude.

The greatest creative work of God
in our lives is diminished
when we look only
outside the soul,
beyond relationships,
beyond the daily.

But look again.
God is doing a new thing
in our hearts and
thru our lives.
