This is a response to the one-word prompt “Create” by “The Daily Post.”
I love writing, it truly is a joy for me, whenever I sit down at my computer or in front of my journal with pen, and insperation just flows from my mind. I also enjoy as a hoby to cook my own meals from time to time. There is just something about taking a whole bunch of nothing (recept ingredents) and making something spectactular as a result. Writing is the same way I find, the ability to creat something and then enjoy the “fruits” of your work is undescribable to me.
But for me it is not just the finish product, but the actural creating that I enjoy so much. The coming up with ideals to write about, the researching, and finding the right ways to say what I want to say and express. To be able to see it all come together as it is coming together, truly is the greatest joy for a creater!
I also find that when I am writing, when I am so deeply into it, that the rest of the world around me is drowned out, I find that I am intuned sometimes with “my creater” and I know then, better than I have ever known just why “He” loves us and all of “His” creation so much. Jesus loves us beacuse he was intamentlty invloved in our creation, as we all came to be step by step in the same way I am invloved step by step in my writing.
To create is much more then bringing something into exsistence, it is about having a “relationship” with what you are creating, to be able to feel the “life” you are “breathing” into it as you work deligenitly to bring it about. When I am writing, I am bringing life so to speak into what I am telling. Life that will flourish and grow as it is read and enjoyed by others. When one is creating something you become a part of the suceeses and/or failars of your creation in “its life.”
So what do you create in your life? What does your act of creation mean for you? How is it enjoyable for you; and do you take in all the processes that go into making your creation? If you don’t creat anything or never have; why not? Actually, you probally have but just did not realise it or considered it as an act of you creating something. So, think back through your life on all that you have done; and I think the results will surprise you. What are your thoughts on creating? Please share!
