"Just warning you: this might be a long one..but please try to read it all..."
As you have most likely noticed, I am sharing my faith on this blog more and more each day.
I have not always been like this..in fact, I was NEVER like this(I mean on "sharing outloud)...and I will always be the first to tell you that I will NEVER EVER push "religion" on you...ever.
I promise that...mostly because it has nothing to do about "religion."
For me, it is about my RELATIONSHIP with God and it is my personal choice. Again, something that I will never push on you or sway you with. Now...I may "Creatively Influence" you, but that is about it.
GOD promises that...and I am living proof, so that is why I share.
I started this blog as a place to share my creative life, an now, almost 6 years later, it is so much more than that. It is still based on creativity for sure, and always will be, but because I have grown spiritually, creatively and relationally and am learning how to combine them, I feel the need to share more..
BUT...(stupid big but) don't misunderstand me...
I am still that "simply complicated", totally dorky, frugalista (that really could use some new clothes but HATE to shop) girl. The over stimulated creative girl that struggles with keeping up with laundry, organization, staying focused and balancing her weight ALL on a daily basis (and MAN..the weight thing is getting harder in my 40's.) and I still stumble (more often than I prefer to admit!)...and sometimes, not just stumble...I fall flat on my face (and the older we get, the harder we fall.)
I am human and I live in a wrecked world.
The GREAT thing is, without hesitation...I get back up.
I can because of my faith and because I know that deep down, there is some type of lesson in my stumbles (even though I can't understand them) and I keep going...
and guess what??
YOU can do this too because
YOU are human...
and well, YOU live in the same wrecked, dented, cracked beautiful, amazing world!
and guess what??
YOU too, have to get up and keep going!
I am pushing you, but you know exactly what I mean here...
YOU MUST GET UP and KEEP GOING!!!
Yes, I am talking to you...
but you do not have to listen to me...it might be easier to get the message from a fortune cookie:
If you fall down 7 times, get up 8 times.
- Chinese Proverb
Now if I ate Chinese food (even though I don't) I sure would love to get a cute little paper in a cookie that looked like this and say's "ut, um"...the same thing:
He promises that, I am proof and I hope that I don't lose ya!
