Do not neglect the gift you have, which was given you by prophecy when the council of elders laid their hands on you. Practice these things, immerse yourself in them, so that all may see your progress. 1 Timothy 4:14-15
Today....boy....today....my body feels broken, but I pushed through to do this page & I was filled with tears of relief & joy when it was done. Not because it was a struggle to accomplish it, but because for me I tend to get rid of stress in my art & pouring over a page in His word creatively allows the release of the pressures that are filling my mind & heart. I have things that I want to say on this today, but my brain isn't working quite right, so I'll just let the page & scripture speak for itself.

Do you see a man skillful in his work?He will stand before kings;he will not stand before obscure men. 
Proverbs 22:29

Don't show off, but use your talents to glorify God. Keep your integrity, your uniqueness & it will bring attention to God & please Him. In doing so, it brings others an awareness of who God is. You never know just who you are reaching with your gifts. Even a social post can change a life & impact someone in ways that you never expected

...behold, I now do according to your word. Behold, I give you a wise and discerning mind, so that none like you has been before you and none like you shall arise after you. I give you also what you have not asked, both riches and honor, so that no other king shall compare with you, all your days.
1 Kings 3:12-13
I added verse 13 by accident. But it's a "happy accident." Today's really got me pondering a lot about how we are all so unique & special. To think that there really has never ever been or will ever be anyone exactly like you. No one has the same thoughts as you. The same gifts or talents. The same relationship with Jesus as you. Comparing how we are different does nothing but to kill, steal & destroy what the Lord made so individual about you. He took extra care & attention when He knitted you together. So embrace your beautiful uniqueness...your oddities, weirdness, craziness, lovely incredibly individual self. He loves you & all your precious mess & fascinating gifts! Love you too! There's no one like you!

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10

Since this page was already covered in my Bible I did my journaling on a separate page & washi taped it in place. And this was my first time to use my gelatos! Fun stuff!

Exodus 35:30-35

I'm doing a study with new incredibly gifted artist friend Creating In Faith with Jamie Dougherty

This study is on using your gifts. And I had such a confirmation today when I saw some of the scriptures she is using with the study. They are some that a precious friend gave to me a few weeks ago about what God is doing in my life. Love those God Moments!

This page isn't my best work. It's the first time that I have written in 2 weeks. But this is what you get when you are healing. It isn't always perfectly pretty. It's the healing that takes place that matters.


"Cats in Paris" ~Book Review






The world has gone adult coloring book crazy, which is quite alright with me! I have never stopped coloring. It's always been a favorite pastime of mine. But to have the wealth of different types of books to delve into now is thrilling! Yes! Coloring can be thrilling! "Cats in Paris" by Won-Sun Jung is such a sweet coloring book about a bunch of felines who make their way through the streets & famous sights of Paris. You get to explore the city as the frolic & play fancy free. So very Parisian, huh? I think if you enjoy coloring, love cats & Paris, then this is the cook for you! It's a must have for your collection or one to start with.

I received this book complimentary from Blogging for Books for my honest review.
