"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."

YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE
Sunshine Song birdie
is all finished.
I hope she makes you happy
and spreads some
sunshine and smiles your way.
I know it made me happy just creating her.
I was so reluctant
to write out the words onto the painting
for fear of making a big ole' boo boo. But then...
I put on my Brave Girl pants
and did it anyway!
Special things happen
when you areBrave.
Not only on the outside or with what
you are making or doing
but on the inside too!
Especially on the inside.
"You always pass failure
on the road to success."
Slowly but surely, I am learning
to trust the journey. How about
YOU my friend,
are you being too hard on yourself?
Are you afraid tomove for fear
of making a big ole' boo boo?
A lesson I learned when painting this
little birdie was that some of my mistakes ended
up making the painting even better than
if I had I not boo booed! Out of what
I thought was
imperfection, I learned a better technique.
(or at least I call it a technique. It worked for me! he he)
"And the time came when
the risk to remain tight in the bud
was more painful than the risk
it took to blossom."
Is there something in your life that you
are letting keep you stuck? Afraid to move
this way or that?
Oh my goodness I understand!
I've been there plenty
of times and I'm sure there will be plenty more,
but we were created by a wonderful God
who made us to be
Brave and Confident.
(we were created in his image)
Whoa, isn't that awesome!
"Have no fear of sudden
disaster, ( like failure)
for the Lord will be your confidence."
Remember this because it is veryimportant:
"You are a masterpiece, hand stitched,
handcrafted, and hand chosen
by the Creator
of all that is lovely."
I'm liking this BRAVE GIRL thing!
IT Even makes me want
to click my heels in the air.
I'll need your hand if I try that though!
Care to join me?
WE can click our heels in glee
and be BRAVE GIRLS together.
Big sunshiny HUGS,
Oh and here is a great tip: if you haven't already
