"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."

Hi Beautiful You!



I hope you know what a difference Y♥U 
make in this world.
There is no one else created just like you.
You are special in every way.

(my newly created art journal covers)


        Psalm 139:1-4 (The Voice Translation)
" You have explored my heart and know exactly who I am; You even know the small details like when I take a seat and when I stand up again.    Even when I am far away, You know what I’m thinking. You observe my wanderings and my sleeping, my waking and my dreaming,    and You know everything I do in more detail than even I know. You know what I’m going to say long before I say it."


  
        Psalm 139:13-14
 For You shaped me, inside and out.    You knitted me together in my mother’s womb long before I took my first breath. I will offer You my grateful heart, for I am Your unique creation, filled with wonder and awe.    You have approached even the smallest details with excellence;    Your works are wonderful;


Sometimes, I think we don't step out
 and use our gifts
and talents or take one step in the direction of
our heart's dream,  because of feeling
we aren't good enough, or don't deserve it etc....
We were each created so uniquely and special.
Please don't believe the lie, that you
don't have something special
 to offer in this world.


Be brave and do at least
 one thing today that you love.


...And remember...
Don't compare yourself to someone else 
and what they do 
and then decide not to share who you are. 

No one else is created just like you and
 no one else can take your place.
There is only one like you snowflake!


Hugs,

I am learning this...God uses me in my imperfection! There are moments when I think I have no right to share or offer something because of all the unfinished in me...but praise God he uses broken vessels that he is restoring!
