"Our duty as men (and women) is to proceed as if limits to our ability did not exist. We are collaborators in creation."--Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
I love any quote about creation. In fact, I am entranced by the whole concept of creation. In our living room, I have a painting of God creating the earth. Next to it is a sculpture (by Mark Hopkins, a friend) of His hands forming the earth. I believe that creation, of any kind, is a God-like quality.
Do you ever feel that you lack creative talents? I do. I feel it all the time. I long to create but feel unequal to the task. Yet I keep trying. That desire to create is inherent in us. With that in mind, I decided that I needed to broaden my definition of creation.
Is the stay-at-home mother who works to create a loving and nurturing home for her family creative? You bet. Is that same mother who can stretch a dollar six different ways creative? Of course. Is the entrepreneur who built a business from nothing creative? Absolutely.
So, for today, I am grateful for those who create.
