This is from the "I AM" series from church. It's basically braking down Jesus in His own words. When Pastor Jay said this quote, this page immediately came to mind. And I knew that I had to do it!
Miss Bug can't escape the flashlight of Jesus!
Not just everyone's hubs will put together their Lisa Frank puzzle that they got from the Dollar Tree, because they don't like puzzles. But love unicorns and Lisa Frank. 💗🦄🌈

Day 4 of "Free from Comparison" @illustratedfaith devotional "Free to Flourish"
Woah...this one is a whopper. This world thrives on comparison, doesn't it? For me it's been a massive piece of baggage during different times in my life, for different reasons. One of the biggest is once getting married & wanting to start a family. After a few years of that not happening & then being surrounded by everyone else my age growing their own. It was torment. I mean, how could you not compare why it's happening for everyone but you? Infertility is an extremely rough road to walk. It impacts every area of your life. Nooks & crannies that most don't even consider. Everything is a reminder of what you don't have. But I have learned throughout this that comparing my life to other's was only killing me. It was rotting my bones. Making me miserable.
I'm thankful for a tranquil heart now. I certainly don't know what is in store for me as far as being a mom is concerned. I will continue to cling to hope, until He says it's time to let it go. But while I wait, comparing has no place in my life now. And what a joy that is.
A tranquil heart gives life to the flesh, but envy makes the bones rot. Proverbs 14:30

Aaaaaaahhhhhhhh!!!!! I'm freaking out right now!!!! I've gotta do some social media gushing! One of my most favorite Bible journalers @christy_fae had a giveaway, I won & received my goodies today!!! That wooden canvas is gonna hang in my studio! I have wanted an interleaved journaling Bible since they come out...It's my dream Bible! If you don't know what that is, there is a double sided blank page between the scripture pages. The photo with my hand shoes how large the Bible is. Ooooohhhhh..... the journaling space is endless!!!!
When I won I asked if she would mind doing a page for me, since I adore her & her art. She exceeded my expectations!!! First...the ownership page.... Why have I never even thought of doing crystals with my name!?! I mean...Duh!!!! That blew me away!!!!! Then the page...no one really knows this, but D & I joke about him being a sloth. So I have a secret love for them! That scripture is one that has always been close to my heart. Goodness gracious...I just get so overwhelmed when the Lord works in these ways. I couldn't love the art more!
So....Go follow @christy_fae. Her heart & artwork are beautiful, quirky & inspiring!!! You won't regret it a bit. She's a doll!

So y'all....the moral of this story is when things don't work out...Something better is on the horizon. And when the Holy Spirit nudges you...Listen & follow His leading. You never know the goodness waiting on you. And one more thing!!! Go see Hector at "The Secret Garden" on Hwy 11. He has the most gorgeous plants! Some things that I have never even seen before!
