I know I could not make it each day without Christ being the center of my life. Everything else revolves around that fact. I am weak, but he is strong. In my weakness, he is strong.
"My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness." So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
I really like this image from pinterest. It just spoke to me. It says a lot about who I am, and what matters to me most. Does that make sense to you? I think art in a lot of forms is a wonderful gift from God, and when talents and gifts or used to glorify God, I believe that makes that talent all the more special. I love to sing, not that I sing so wonderfully, but let's say I love making a joyful noise to God. It may or may not be so joyful to others, but to God I'm sure he delights in my efforts :) Anyway, with all that said, I am interested in learning to play the guitar. I don't even own one as of yet, but I'll see what happens with that idea, then I'll work on learning to play. Just a thought!
How do you like this picture of my "almost amish" mama and daddy, aren't they cute? I'm giving up my collection of Amish things. I guess it's all about coming to accept who I really am, and learning not to wish or desire to be something or someone I'm not. I gave this amish made hat to my daddy and he just loves it. Mama wouldn't have my bonnet although I tried giving it to her, black isn't her favorite color ;) So I'll keep it and may even wear it from time to time. I'm perfectly happy just being simply me, almost amish Shelley.........another big smile here :) We live and learn, don't we? Life is a lesson in so many ways. Sometimes the testing is long and difficult, but the rewards will be everlasting if we endure and pass the test.
Guess, I've rattled on enough today ladies. Thank you for letting me bend your ears. Blessings to all
