This is the time of year when ceativity reaches a peak. Decorating your house for Christmas allows all sorts of creative juices to flow…after all it’s Christmas and anything goes.
Wrapping paper in all colors and patterns…matching bows curled or looped…candles in every size, color, and fragrance imaginable…gifts that fit in the palm of your hand or on a finger to ones that defy being wrapped…visits with family (now I admit sometimes that really requires some creativity) what will we talk about???? Let’s see… “No” not that subject…”how about ____? “No that will never work.” So we end up resorting to polite frivolous small talk.
“Lke, what dessert are you having first?”
Oh my, Creativity is so much fun during the Christmas holidays!
So I want to offer you an opportunity to explore your creative side with Wordle. I used Wordle to create the picture at the top of this post.
Here are the directions:
First you type some text you would like to use. I used scirpture passages from the readings for this week.
Next you go to www.wordle.net
Click on the “CREATE your own” button. Once there copy your selected text into the box or you can just type your text right in their box.
Then click on GO button.
In seconds you will have created your very own Wordle “word cloud”. Now you may be excited with the results, but I encourage you to “play” with the many different options offered. At the top of your newly created wordle are some buttons; the color, font, and layout are the ones you should explore.
Find one you like and celebrate that you can be creative in many ways.
I believe creativity is inspired by God, who has certainly given us numerous examples of his wild creativity…just look at nature or the animal kingdom.
Show your children or grandchildren Wordle and let them have some fun together.
Now I am going to create one with the names of everyone in my family. That will surely give us something to talk about…!!! I must make sure that I do not forget anyone’s name!
May your life be overflowing with JOY…and generously sprinkled with FUN.
