Beauty in the Everyday



I drew this picture yesterday during my Job as a pre-school assistant at my church! I was just having so much fun actually taking the time to draw! I even had a little audience of kids watching me with big fascinated eyes asking me questions like "wear did you learn to draw so good?" moments like these make me feel so warm and fuzzy inside!

When I see all of the beauty around me it takes my breath away. I am so thankful to be living. Sometimes I forget how blessed I truly am. God has given me a loving though sometimes overbearing family, a roof over my head, an over abundance of food and most of all Jesus. I need to realize no matter how hard I think my life is I have been given the greatest gift of all, a Savior. No one can separate me from that gift except myself. Which is a crazy thought. When I am going along living for myself alone I can’t enjoy all that God wants to share with me. i have to get out of bed everyday and just be like "God take it all, everything, all that I am is yours. I can't make it on my own". It seems so easy but all to often I am waking up rushing through my morning and totally forgetting that God even exists. All I can think about are silly things like "I Know there has to be milk somewhere in this refrigerator" or "where did that shirt go, I wonder if it got lost in the wash?" I'm realizing this is really something i have to work on, Not Just something I can shrug off.

Galatians 1:3-5
Grace to you and Peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us out of this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to Whom be the glory forever. Amen
