The Old Has Gone

2 Corinthians 5:17  “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”

It was supposed to  inspire  me to meditate on things “spring”,  like budding trees and flowers, then make a comparison with my new self since giving my life to Christ.   However,  when I read it, this is what I saw, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the NEW CREATION has come: THE OLD HAS GONE…”.  I glance away from my study for just a second, and see our chalkboard wall.

“NEW CREATION”?  The “Castle Wall” has been the featured chalk art since the end of January.  We are finished with the knights and castle part of our middle ages unit study.  It’s time for something “NEW”.   So I had B14 erase it.

The next study will be about the plague.  I do not want anything plague related in my kitchen.     So, I’m thinking something “spring”.  Something butterflies and flowers.  I glance through an art book we got from the library .   And, sure enough there’s step by step instructions for drawing a butterfly.

It usually takes a couple of days to finish a mural, but when it’s done, I’ll show you.

Happy Spring and Happy New Creation,

    LOVE LOVE LOVE it’s so easy to get caught up in the fact that we continue to sin. BUT, seeing that we are a new creation and a buttterfly being transformed – it’s a sweet reminder. Thank you for linking this up to Ultimate Resources
