i didn't really know how to title this post...
it's just me sharing a little something.
since my post on watercolor fun i have been having LOTS
of fun playing :)
i don't think i have played this much with watercolors since i was a
little girl! fun times :)
when i came across this album cover from a song i purchased recently on
iTunes, it gave me the inspiration to do a watercolor layout.
the song in and of itself is so inspirational. the artist tells his story so well.
i related in a different way.
one of my favorite lines is, "I can't give you half my heart, and pray He makes you whole."
and i thought, i do that, too. i ask God to make me or a situation whole, but i don't always
give Him all of me. the good and the bad. the broken or the beaten down. not always.
He wants ALL of me--all of my joys, happiness, praises, sadness, hard times, anger, and tears.
ALL of it.
this year has been hard for me. a personal struggle of ups and downs. that's life.
but this year has been particularly difficult with the passing of my Dad this past August.
if you ( the blessed 2 ;) ) have followed my blog at all, i have given you glimpses of my hardships.
i don't openly share the full extent of my life here because it's not something that i choose to do.
this layout was good for me because it reminds me that God wants me all of the time and i need to
remember to focus on him more and more everyday. now, i can physically go back and look at this, and smile, resting in His care. i love that.
thanks for looking.
have a blessed day, friends!! :)
