Over Spring Break we got to take a little trip back home- to TEXAS!!- to visit my parents.
Princess #1 and Princess #2 sleep in my old room that I had growing up, and in the great "save EVERYTHING you ever owned fashion", my mom still has all my closets stuffed with-"EVERYTHING I ever owned (and made)".
The girl's love to go through those magic closets! I'll admitt, it is fun for me too!
One morning Princess #1 presented me with a pair of tennis shoes, handpainted , all-over, by yours truly!
I was reminded how much I have ALWAYS loved creating, painting, drawing, & everything crafty. I was also reminded that I believe that "love to create" is something God placed in me- a gift from Him. I am at the most peace and filled with pure joy when I am "working".
I often joke and say that I wish God would send me a " burning bush " or just a written note that would tell me if I am doing what He has designed me to do - for His glory!
Well, I guess He has, it's just in the form of "the writing on the tennis shoes!"
May I remember this when I get discouraged, overwhelmed, or just plain "not sure if I am doing what I should be"!
May you have a lovely day, filled with joy and peace, doing whatever you have been created and gifted to do!
P.S. I painted those shoes when I was 12- and I wore them ALL through middleschool & highschool!!!!- I brought them home to put in my studio- as a nice reminder- I promise NOT to wear them! (at least not in public!)
