KUUMBA = CREATIVITY!

Habari Gani!!!! Happy Kwanzaa!!!!! Today is the day of the great Karamu feast! Yayyyy!!!!!! Eat and be Merry!!!! Enjoy your family! Be creative and make a small gift to share with someone in your family!

When life hands you lemons, you make lemonade. Now that’s creativity! My grandmother used to call it “making due” with what you have. When the bed sheets became a curtain and then the curtain became a table clothe and the table clothe became a dress and then the dress became a napkin or a duster and then the napkin or duster became a part of the patch quilt blanket- that’s creativity! In this sense we are like God! He is the creator and he created us to be creative! Just like him! So today tap into the power that God has given you. Think of ways you can be creative. Take nothing and turn in into something!
