This kit is one that keeps on "giving."
I played today while the kids were at Mom's Day Out with the last bit of my Madeline kit from Noel Mignon. (Psssst- there are only 7 left- AND they are on sale.)
This layout came out of some thoughts I have been wrestling with lately and God revealing yet a little more to me about His personality (and mine).
Since I didn't really know what to put on here for a photo, and since I had this cool photo that I took recently that I wanted to use somehow, I figured they kind of fitted together.... kind of symbolizing the blooming thoughts I have- if you want to go down that cheesy road. ;)
Everything on here is from the Madeline kit except for that crocheted lace from my Grams, the graph paper, the binder clip, and the American Crafts Glitter Thickers (I think I have just about every color and am now trying to collect every font in these. I just love them. You can find some here.)
Sometimes I am nervous sharing this kind of stuff on here, even though I know it's my blog. I'm very much a "don't rock the boat" kind of girl, and I don't ever want anyone to misinterpret something that I put on here.
So, just for the record, this isn't about any one or any situation in particular, just a reoccurring theme in my life and me trying to figure things out.
Believing in that which is unbelievable.
Called to trust in one who I can't see, feel, hear, touch.
And so, I foolishly put my faith and trust in those around me I can see, feel, hear... and then I feel a false sense of safety. I do this so many times. I think and believe that humans...humanity... is trustworthy.
But what does God's word - the Truth - say? He says man is thoroughly wicked and depraved, without God's Spirit... even the ones that are nice.
Even my friends and family.
I can only trust Him. He is who He says He is.
We are who He says we are.
Where would I be without Him?
I am a broken, lost, foolish, and naive girl.
Willing to be deceived.
Replacing God with those around me.
Pursue me, oh my God. Make me Yours, because only You are true.
