Finding Inspiration

by Gail Wofford Cartee

 Spring Break – Finally! Exhausted from the cold wet winter weather and teacher paperwork this week I’m doing what I love most – digging in the dirt.

Fence posts need to be set. Wire must be stretched and the garden has to be tilled. Why would I love all this physical, backbreaking, bone-tiring work? It gives me time to take a deep breath from the craziness of life and observe God’s Creation. I notice praying mantis nests, squishy eggs buried under straw mulch, bees buzzing in the blueberry blossoms and so much more to write about. Whether gardening, camping, hiking, or strolling along the beach, the Lord’s Creation is my inspiration to illustrate His Truth.

How about you? What does the Lord use to inspire you to write His Truth?
