Bella Grace is a new publication from Stampington. This image-rich book is a peek into the lives of artists. It goes beyond the behind-the-scenes. To me, it's more about the spirit of creating. What drives us to create. The why's. Then takes you there….nestled into a backpack for a view upon a mountaintop. It makes you want to travel to these places. To spend time with the artist over coffee. And I think that's just what you'll do with Bella Grace. She certainly lives up to her name.
One Sunday I wrote and painted this. I hope it inspires you to lay out among the stars. ponder the smallness yet vastness that is You…..
I am Rooted in His love.
my story holds everything
through spirit I embrace Grace.
I am a light.
A shared light with the one that came before me
I am here to point to His Glory
To cherish what is so freely given.
To be still
to lay with the stars as one
to hold and acknowledge
that I am all God says I am.
I am one with the trees
I am one with the Maker of all these things.
Rooted in His Love
***inspired by the words of Cody Carnes, All He Says I am
