(In) Courage - A Moment to Breathe - Day 200

Hello!
I hope you are having a great day.

In today's online class I worked on Day 186 in the 

Heather's Hobbie Haven - A Moment to Breathe - Day 200

Isaiah 55:8-9
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not my ways." This is the Lord's declaration. "For as heaven is higher than earth, so my ways are higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts."

Today's story is about child-proof locks.

I push down hard and turn it to the right.
The lid still won't open.
So I try it again.

Children aren't supposed to be able to open certain things.
Seat belts are in cars for a reason.
Electrical outlets are covered for a reason when little ones are around.
Protection.
They're meant to say "KEEP OUT!"
But as children, we go meddling with our little fingers, twisting and turning until suddenly, the cap comes off.

We do this as adults too.
We meddle with our words and our mouths.
We stick our heads into business that has nothing 
to do with us.
We whine when we don't get the answer when we want it, how we want it.
We whine when we get the wrong answer.
It might seem harmless, but this whining and meddling could be dangerous not only to us but to those around us.

The next time we're facing an obstacle, a closed door, maybe we should just back away from the situation. 
Maybe it's like a child-proof lock from our Father.

Sometimes a closed door or a denied opportunity is meant for your protection.

I don't know about you but I know I need to work on this.
I want things when I want them.
Everything is on my time.
I can hardly ever see the greater plan.
Life seems like a giant child-proof lock.

(In) Courage - A Moment to Breathe - Day 193

Hey!
I hope you are having a wonderful week.
In today's online class I worked on Day 186 in the 

Heather's Hobbie Haven - A Moment to Breathe - Day 193

Exodus 31:3-5
I have filled him with God's Spirit, with wisdom, understanding, and ability in every craft to design artistic works in gold, silver, and bronze, to cut gemstones for mounting, and to carve wood for work in every craft.

Today's story is about creating.

Are you a crafty person?
Can you make works of art?
Do you scrapbook or make quilts?
Do you cook up wonderful creations?
Or maybe you can arrange flowers?

If you are crafty you may tend to downplay your ability.
It may seem like nothing to you.
But you know what
God gave the artists their ability.

So don't underestimate the usefulness of your gifts in making the world a more beautiful place.

Today carve out time to do something crafty you love.
If you aren't crafty encourage someone you know who is.

(In) Courage - A Moment to Breathe - Day 186

Hey!
I hope you are having a wonderful week.
In today's online class I worked on Day 186 in the 

Heather's Hobbie Haven - In Courage - A Moment to Breathe - Day 186

Psalm 56:8
You yourself have recorded my wanderings. Put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your book?

Today's story is about crying.

I am not ill or in financial trouble.
My husband and children are all fine.
Why do I have so many tears?
What am I crying about?

We sold our house.
This is a good thing, but now I must pack everything up and purge things that will no longer fit in our new home.
How can I get rid of all these things?

Tossing things felt personal as if I were saying memory doesn't matter.
Suddenly every little thing mattered.

I was grieving.
I felt certain kind of loss.
I cried a lot and felt guilty about it.

But then it hit me...
crying wasn't a weakness.
Every tear tells a story.
Tears are a way for the body to express itself when words aren't enough. 
Tears are evidence of a great love and for a life that has meant something special.

Let's listen to our tears and see them as evidence of a heart that loves and cares.

Watercolor - Hillside Landscape

Hello!
I hope you are having a wonderful day.

Today I decided to have a play with recreating a painting I saw over on @teejayalipio Instagram feed.
Hers was beautiful!

I used the Prima Decadent Pies palette to watercolor with.
I wanted to keep it all in brown tones.
I still need a lot more practice but I like how it turned out.

(In) Courage - A Moment to Breathe - Day 179

Hey!
I hope you are having a wonderful week.
In today's online class I worked on Day 179 in the 

Heather's Hobbie Haven - In Courage A Moment to Breathe - Day 179

Colossians 3:17
And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

Today's story is about life not going like you planned.

I just graduated from college.
I'll be getting that dream job.
I will figure out what I want to do with my life.
I had dreams and goals I wanted to achieve immediately, but God doesn't work in my timing.

I ended up working at that job I had before I went to college.

I would cry out to God 
"Surely I am meant for more than this?"
Then God whispered in my ear I am enough!

Regardless of your current job--
 garbage man, cashier, stock clerk, dishwasher, stay at home mom.
He is enough.

I can do whatever my heart desires but if God isn't my contentment then nothing will ever be enough.
My life will be empty because only God is enough.

To you have days like that?
I sure do.
It seems like I'm in a constant state of restlessness.
Always wondering when my life will be what I want or how I imagined it would be.
It's a constant battle every day.

I have a million and two things I would like to be doing every day, but instead, I'm making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches all day, picking up that towel for the 10th time, and entertaining children all day.
This is not what I had planned or imagined.
But I'm praying for God to be enough and see me through this season.

So when you get discouraged, know that God is enough.
He will always be enough.

Wherever you are, right now at this moment, you can trust that God knows what He's doing, and He has you where you are for a reason.
