Faith

Sometimes I think that He must be up there smiling and possibly laughing a little bit as I sit here wondering what's next in my life. 

I was reading my "old journal". I was on the search of a spiritual realization that I wanted needed to remember. Instead, I couldn't help but think how ridiculous I was. It's hard to imagine that I used to be that girl, wasting my time writing about things that didn't matter.
I was so embarrassed. In order to remedy the shame I wrote the words,
"A girl trying to figure out who she is"
in the front. Thinking somehow that would make it better.
I'll tell ya, it didn't. I want to burn that red book. I know I shouldn't because it's good to look back and realize how much I have learned and changed just within the last year. 

My kids ain't ever reading that thing.

I'm on a spiritual high. It's times like these that I wish could last forever.
I wish I could just shove what I'm feeling into you. 
Yeah, that's weird.
Welcome to my blog,
I'm weird.
You're weird.
Face it, we're weird together.

but seriously.....

"faith is a real power, not just an expression of belief."
-President Boyd K Packer

and sometimes I think we forget that.
Faith moves mountains, even if your mountain is small.

I can't get enough of your art. Watercolor or ink? Gorgeous self portrait. You should consider opening an Etsy shop & doing custom stuff for people. I used to paint all the time and wasn't half bad... I miss that!
