Grace

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

 

Cry and the Lord hears


i am usually a very happy person. My sister has told me before that I go around wearing rose colored glasses. I just prefer seeing the glass half full.

But every now and then we have a bad day. Yesterday was my day! Sometimes the world just catches up with you and you need a good cry.

I went to my “Bible Journaling through Art” class last night and guess what words were in ” The Word to Live by” for this week that we are working on? I highlighted which ones stood out to me in my art . It is a WIP (work in Progress) but I wanted you to see it.

“The righteous cry and the Lord hearth. My words are life. I always hear your cry. To hear me speak is to find Life, and healing and strength.”

God so knew what I needed to hear last night. He is always there for you when you need him. Just open up your heart and let him in. Times will still be hard but you will experience peace and joy through it all because of him.

Then this Morning as I am reading my daily devotional in “Jesus Always” here are the wonderful words Jesus had for me and you.

” My love chases after you every day of you life. So look for signs of my tender presence as you go through this day. I disclose myself to you in a vast variety of ways – words of Scripture just when you need them, helpful words spoken through other people, “coincidences” orchestrated by My Spirit, natures beauty, and so on.

Mom NO MOM???


My mom died a few days after I was born so I have never had that mom I could go to and ask questions and share all my thoughts with. I have been blessed to be the mom of a wonderful daughter and 2 great daughter-in-laws. All three of these special ladies are moms today! I want to wish them and all moms a very Happy Mother’s Day!

I just finsihed a this colored pencil drawing on mylar and decided to turn it into a Mother’s Day card. Hope you enjoy!

She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed, her husband also, and praises her. Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all. Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the LORD to be praised. Psalm 31:25-30
