Harsh words don’t ever help us feel better…ever!

This is so true in all relationships and sometimes the hardest for me. I’m learning to love myself (& all of my imperfections) which can be so hard, but I know that if I’m not happy with me then I can’t be happy with others either. It’s a hard process, because the devil is always trying to play mind games with us…always!

Lord, give me strength today and help me be a blessing to others. And…please help me think before I speak!

How bright is your light?

I can’t sit here and say that my light has not always lit up the room. Heck, there have been days, weeks and years that I feel it has been broken! But thank goodness we have a never ending supply of lightbulbs if we just ask our supplier – Jesus! Thank goodness for His forgiveness, mercy and grace!

A bright light sure does make for a happier life and this momma is a constant work in progress!

My big shoes

I stumbled upon this picture of KG today. I remember her trying so hard to walk in my heels. Look at how little her feet are in my size 9 heels! After a little bit a lot of falling and getting back up, she finally got the hang of it. Kinda like life, right?!? If only we always had the determination of little ones.

Thank goodness God is always there to help us back up when we get a little off course! He’s always there to help guide us back and love us no matter how “bad” we’ve been.

I know that He has a great plan for me (and you!). And I also know that I’m still trying to learn to walk in my shoes, too! I can’t wait for the day when I finally learn what His plan is for me.

The “Pit”

Brothers and sisters, I do not consider that I have made it my own yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead. Philippians 3:13

So…how do we get out of “the pit”??? Pit of discouragement, pit of fear, pit of anger, pit of depression…Well, it’s SIMPLE! Climb out. Skip the guilt trip. Move on! Don’t be discouraged by your past failures…doesn’t mean you can’t start over! Remember: There is ONE person that the devil CANNOT defeat. A person who refuses to give up!

Bible Journaling Process:

I guess you could say that I’m a little “matchy matchy”…because I have to make sure that my devotion notes and my Bible journal compliment each other. And when I say compliment – I mean the art. Or maybe it’s just another reason to have a little momma time! (wink wink). It’s so therapeutic and quiet…although my mini me is asleep and I can hear her music playing in the background. She loves SpiritFM.❤️

Tonight, I had a little extra “me” time so I made another process video. Enjoy!

DIY Rosettes

I ❤️ all things crafty! I mean ALL things and all mediums. I feel like there is nothing that I can’t do when it comes crafting. I just spend a little (A LOT) time watching YouTube and stalking Pinterest for a few minutes (hours) and dive right in! I was working on a project and had leftover material, so I decided to make fabric rosettes.

I loved how they turned out, but never knew exactly what I’d do with them…until this evening. Voila!!

Want to make your own rosettes? Check out NatSprat’s tutorial. I can’t remember the exact tutorial, but this is a good one! Or you could just search for “diy fabric rosette” on…you guessed it! Pinterest! 💕
