Not sure why, but God just laid this on my heart.

Blessed. A simple word that says so much! My life hasn't always been rosey to say the least. But when I think about how my life has gone, I sit here and know that I am Blessed. Again, my life, like many of you, hasn't been the easiest, but I do not dwell on that. I look for the good in people. I look for the sunshine. You won't ever find me feeling sorry for myself. I am a child of God. So therefore, I am blessed! 

I made this "Blessed" craft last year and it sits atop of our refrigerator to always remind me how Blessed I am.

How'd I make it:

  • Paint Stirers
  • Chalk Paint
  • Stencil (Blessed)
  • wooden Crate
  • Mod Podge
  • Napkin (Rejoice in the Lotd)

May you always see the good in people. May you always feel the sunshine. And may you always feel BLESSED.

Keep shinin',

Basically, life is trying to grab us with its dark, grubby fingers every chance it gets and we have to have something that shines a light for us, so we're not dragged under.
Art (any sort of art) is so, so important. Using our God given creative ability is a healing thing.
Listening to music and crafting is my light. This morning I was listening to one of my favourite CDs in the world( 'Lifesong" by Casting Crowns) while I was Mod Podging away ... and it felt like I was on a higher plane!
"Blessed" is one of my favourite words as well. When I saw the title of your blog, Kelly Clarkson's song "Blessed" started playing in my head! Beautiful song, with beautiful lyrics!
Hope you're all having a super blessed day!

Donna, isn't it the truth! When I'm feeling blue, an uplifting song can chase the blues away. Thankful God has me on this journey... I NEVER expected it, but I am embracing it!
