Welcome To My Colorful World!

Welcome to my colorful world. I am a happy (most of the time!) wife, mom, MeMaw, artist, and art teacher. I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I also love to create, cook, nest, decorate, entertain family and friends, laugh, collect vintage stuff, snuggle my cats and dog, play outdoors, and so much more! In addition to all this, I also publish an online magazine with my dear friend, called Mermaids of the Lake. Oh, and I love a big cup of coffee with cream, a dry martini, red wine, blingy jewelry, pink lipstick, blue fingernail polish. I love color! Beautiful colors inspire, motivate, and move me!!! What's my favorite color? I can't choose. I love them all! Yellow, pink, red, turquoise, blue, purple, orange, green and every variation in between!

Worry is Exhausting

Who of you by worrying
can add a single hour
to this life?
Mathew 6:27

Worrying is carrying tomorrow's load with today's strength- 
carrying two days at once. 
It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. 
Worrying doesn't empty tomorrow of its sorrow, 
it empties today of its strength.
~Corrie ten Boom

Oh, Corrie.... you are so right and so wise. Worrying is completely unproductive and truly does sap you of your strength. Yet, so difficult to stop once those negative thoughts crowd themselves in. Today, I am focusing on letting go of worry.
