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!

Proverbs 16:3 and a Joseph Campbell Quote

Joseph Campbell says it well
"We must be willing to let go of the life we’ve planned, 
so as to have the life that is waiting for us.”

I painted this little painting last year after talking to my college-age daughter. We had a conversation about letting go of what you think you want and instead, letting God lead you to something better. (Unless of course, what you want is what he wants for you. And even then... letting Him take it is a guarantee that it is right) It was a great revelation for her, so she texted me to tell me about it.
"Oh, well... I thought that was what I wanted, but it isn't working out that way, so I will stop trying to make it happen, accept it and move on to what God has in mind for me." When you give your plans to God, you can rest assured that he will guide and it will happen and be right and good and successful; because He keeps his word and He can do anything. He is GOD, after all! "For nothing is impossible with GOD." Luke 1:37

Proverbs 16:3 says it even better
 "Commit your works to the LORD, And your plans will be established."
