Grace, n underserved, unmerited, unearned, favor.
I am a Christian, I’m not perfect, I mess up, but God’s Grace is bigger than my sins.
A thousand times I have failed and still your mercy remains, and if I stumble again I’m caught in your Grace.
Every weakness you have is an opportunity for God to show his strength in your life.
My Grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.
2 Corinthians 12:9
Marie Laveau, who is known at the Voodoo Queen of New Orleans was married at 18 to Jacques Paris. He died of mysterious circumstances and by the time she was in her 20’s she was known as Widow Paris. This name is also etched on her grave which has become a popular tourist attraction. Many condemned her as a witch while others praised her as a saint. She died on June 15, 1881 and is buried in St. Louis Cemetery.
But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

WIP- Work In Progress
Tonight I started an Art Bible Journaling class. I am very excited to start this class. This is what I worked on in class. I will show you how I progress through this journey. I hope that this journey will bring me closer to Jesus.
I am taking a colored pencil class and we are drawing a fig leaf. This project took a few days, as I spent a few hours each time, working on the project. i started off with a new velvety leaf and by the time I got to the end my fig leaf was dry and crumbled up. Therefore my colored pencil fig leaf evolved through the days just like the real leaf.
This fig leaf reminds me of our lives with Christ. We can either be velvety fresh and green and always ready to learn new things through his word or we can become dried up and crumble if we let the enemy in our life and walk away from his word.
Spend time each day in his word and refresh yourself with his life flowing water (word).
Even though I don’t like eating figs I did enjoy drawing this leaf!
