"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering."

Over But Not Finished!
I've missed you. Sorry I haven't posted
for over a week. Actually, I've been busy creating
and trying to keep my mind off of
some junk life threw at me recently. I'm sure you've
had times like that too if you are human
like me. Also my hubby had a rough last few days
due to( we think) food poisoning from when
we ate out. I felt so helpless knowing there was
nothing I could do to help him through it
other than waiting with him for it to pass.
While busy creating I came up with
this watercolor painting- pendant I am calling
Geo Blue Attitude
Soooo...on to a better week ahead!
I hope you won't mind if I share about a
sermon message I heard this week that
really hit home with me.
It was all about endings and beginnings and
how those endings or finishes to
something can sometimes cause us
to feel defeated and even to some it can feel
like the good life is over!
Maybe you've come to an end,
or a finish to something
like a job loss or a relationship loss or
financial loss, end of a season, etc... and you
are tempted to STOP THERE. Ready
to give up on your dreams that God has placed
in your heart. Well my friend, DO NOT GIVE UP
that DREAM. You are not suppose to stop there.
Maybe it's over, but you're not finished!!!!
It is not the completion of your destiny. God has a plan!
"A tragic end can become a tremendous
testimony to the grace of an Almighty God
because they didn't stop"
" Once we have come to the end of our
self-sufficiency, God will empower us to do the
tasks He has ordained for us."
When Jesus died on the cross the disciples
thought it was the end. Can you imagine all
of the feelings and emotions they must have had?
They probably felt defeated and hopeless, some maybe
even had guilty feelings or feelings of rejection
or abandonment. They didn't understand that
what they saw finishing at
the end of Jesus life on the cross
would bring about a
New and Glorious Beginning
when he arose from the grave and
now HE LIVES ♥♥♥
So my friend remember you were created
for a special purpose and that dream in your heart,
is most likely there,
because God put that desire inside of you.
Don't stop at an ENDING, because a
new beginning could be exactly what is
needed to fulfill your purpose. Don't stop where you are not suppose to.
"I will instruct you (says the Lord)
and guide you along the
best pathway for your life; I will
advise you and watch your progress."
Psalm 32:8 (TLB)
"An amazing set back can mean an
amazing come back!"
Standing on the sidewalk cheering and clapping as you go by for your new beginnings! Go girlfriend...go girlfriend...go girlfriend!!!!!
