Faith Matters: Becoming...

IMG_5514.jpg

Becoming...   I like that - we're all 'becoming' right?  All of us, a work in progress and still God pursues us through our ups and downs.  However, what do we do when seasons change, when we disappoint or fail?  The sad answer is that we turn on ourselves or blame someone else (often those we love) when things don't turn out the way we planned.

There is a season for wildness and a season for settledness, and this is neither. This season is about becoming. Don't lose yourself at happy hour, but don't lose yourself on the corporate ladder, either.Shauna Niequist, Bittersweet: Thoughts on Change, Grace, and Learning the Hard Way becoming

I love the bible verse above that I've copied out using watercolour into my journal, along with a bit of necessary doodling (on my part).  It reminds me that no matter how much we mess up, we're loved.  We're held close.  He understands.  We don't have it all sorted but He does.  We don't have all the answers but He does.  So, rest in His arms Sweet One.

Talking of 'becoming', this little craft project (below) that my friend Linsay organised recently, has been a real success and the boys have loved witnessing the grass seed coming to life - yes, 'becoming' in it's own special way...

You might have guessed - tights were stuffed with soil and grass seed added at the top - cool right? ;)

Anyway, still talking of 'becoming' (sorry, my head is all over the place today with my husband in hospital recovering from leg surgery), I'd love for you to join our Creativity Women's Facebook Group - it's evolving beautifully and we'd love for you to be a part of it.  Simply click this link and ask to join.

I've decided to close down my network shortly due to family and work commitments but I'm enjoying the dynamic of our Facebook group.  Classes, videos (free) etc are now accessible via my website as well as a link to join our monthly postcard mail art swap.

Take care everyone and have a fantastic weekend whatever your plans.
