At some point in time someone will ask you,
who are you?
Who do you consider yourself to be? I have been asked this question in magazine articles and in conversations with various people. I have been told this is a difficult question for many people. It is not for me. I have no problem answering it quickly and honestly.
I am a woman seeking the heart of God.
Pure and simple.
All that I do comes from that phrase. I also believe that my whole purpose in life and why we are put on this planet is for one purpose and that is to glorify God in whatever we do, so that He can reveal His love for us and through us.
I am also a person that makes many mistakes on a daily basis. I am strong headed and jump into things whole heartedly and suffer the consequences later. I have been married 3 times and raised my children as a single mom for many years. I have not lived a fairytale life but I have lived a good life. Through all my choices God was there. I always knew that. I have a strong relationship with Him. I am not a religious person, I have an intimate relationship with my heavenly Father through Christ who lives in me. He is my daily companion, we walk and talk together no matter if I am making art or making dinner.
I love sharing His love with others,
it is my passion.
I am not trying to push my beliefs on anyone they are just intertwined in who I am. I do not belong to a certain denomination, in fact I do not go to church at all right now. I haven't for years. If I found one I was comfortable in and I felt I was to be there, then I would join. I was active in a non- denominational church for years but I no longer am now.
I do not live a perfect life, but I am perfected through Christ.
I started blogging 2 years ago this June. I started it to journal my life and talk about my work. My blog has always been a mix of family, art, the shop, my home...my thoughts. My blog is me. It was always meant to be fun and to inspire others. It was not meant to be just a pretty blog. Oh, I love eye candy too but that isn't my focus. At one point I thought of having two blogs, one for the art and one for the spiritual side but I didn't know how to separate the two. I didn't do it with my shop or home or friendships, how could I on my blog which records my thoughts and life. Through this blog the Lord has blessed my life with lovely friendships that I would have never thought possible. I truly love many of you. I have had the pleasure of meeting many of you. But I realize it is hard to really know someone from reading bits and pieces of there lives written in a few posts twice a week. That is why I am writing this now, because I care about you and what you think. I will support, pray, read and talk with you but I will not change who I am... I will just try to paint a better picture, a realistic picture and if that no longer blesses you then please take me off your blog roll. This is not about PR for me or getting my numbers up, this is about real life, real people, being real and sharing that. Whether it be fixing up the bath, losing weight or sharing my passion I would love to have you journey with me but know that somewhere down the road I will preach after all I am my fathers daughter...
