HAPPY SNOW DAYS (at least if you’re in
Nashville)! We never gets snow/ice like this here at least in my lifetime, and
I am soaking up all the free time I have. One thing that I have had the time to
do is CRAFT! I LOVE CRAFTING! I love painting, scrapbooking, and writing my
feelings onto a picture. Yesterday I painted a couple of pictures with messages
that I have been holding onto these days.
I am NO Picasso! but Here are the pictures and below is the inspiration behind them!
heals all wounds” has been a phrase I have needed because I have felt
very wounded recently. This phrase was inspired when I read an article about
how we all go through heartbreak, but we can hold fast to the fact that there
are NO wounds God cannot heal in time.
your Life in Orbit” was inspired after I went to a worship service for
the college/young adult age called Kairos at Brentwood Baptist, which I highly
recommend. I had been wanting to go for a long time now, and it was such a God
thing because the service I went to was JUST the message I NEEDED. I had been
in a low with my relationship with God, and Mike Glenn, the preacher, ended
with a message with an analogy that blew my mind. He started with describing
how the universe is in perfect orbit around the sun. If another planet was in
the center, the whole galaxy would be flawed. He took this further to say that
this is how GOD is for us in our lives. If another world/material thing is at
the center of our lives, our life would eventually lead to a collapse. We would
eventually have a problem that the worldly center of our lives cannot uphold
us. So this picture is a CONSTANT reminder that that GOD is the ONLY one
that can keep our lives stable and “in orbit”.
Good” is the one I worked on yesterday, and it began with me wanting
to make a collage with all my fun Lilly Pulitzer flower paper. After doing so,
I needed something in the center, and I had a sticker laying close by that said
this. I saw it and knew it was the perfect fit for my piece because lately I
have been reminded of how blessed I am by so many. No matter the
circumstances of your life, life as a whole is good, and a gift from God to be
appreciated. The flowers were perfect to symbolize how life blooms into
Believe, Love Always” are just some phrases to be some life mottos,
and they are pretty self explanatory!
I wanted to share these paintings
because 1. I am so happy that I can be a little artsy, and 2 in hopes that they
may be reminders to help you or brighten your day!
You are so LOVED! Have a great rest of the week!
