January #blessingsketches

When I thought about how God told me my word of the year was Peace, I thought of different things He might want me to achieve. As I sat in Him and listen, I hear Him whisper ‘I want you to count your blessings’. At first I wasn’t sure how that could bring me peace but I obeyed. I obeyed out of the respect I have for the Lord and out of the fact that counting what I am grateful would never harm me. As week one turned into week two I noticed small actions that might have gone unnoticed. I started to count many more blessings in one day. I was learning to let myself not come to anger, fear, and anxiety  as easily. I was thanking God for all that He has made, small or large.
What an incredible month of blessings it has been.

25th Birthday

My birthday was Monday, the day I usually try to post but skipped this week.

I feel I should write something profound, embark some wisdom or knowledge or maybe a few of my funny stories I have.  Maybe I will. I don’t really have plans for this post.

I guess I never saw myself hitting this number. When I was younger, all I could image was turning 16, get my licence and drive away. Of course, several events happened that caused me to stay and I’m grateful for that. However, I still never saw myself at 25. If I did see myself, it was a blurry image of a single mom with so many kids, broken and alone.

Praise God that He has a plans for us! That His plan is bright and splendid.

Now I’m 25. I learn more about myself and the world around me everyday. I don’t know where I will be in 5 years but that’s okay. I know God is wonderful. I know that with God in charge of my life, I can drive though the night with headlights off (metaphorically speaking). I have a joy and peace in Him. Amen? Amen!

So no art this week but next.
