Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #155

Hello there! Welcome to a new sketch week at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

Here is what I came with! The feather is hand painted with acrylic paint on watercolor paper. The "love" was cut out on a cricut at a crop. I do not remember what the name of the cartridge was as it was quite awhile ago. I haven't decided if I will frame this or add a quote with it....time will tell!

I hope you will join us for this beautiful sketch!

Follow your Dreams...or Give them up...

My plans are not my own. I have wordly plans, dreams, hopes; but they are nothing if I don't give them up to God. 

I am in a season of craving change. This is nothing new, as I am quite often changing things up because I get bored. So. Easily. But this change I am seeking is different. It has weighed heavy on my heart for sometime now. And yet, this is the first time I have brought it to God. These stirrings have made me quite anxious. Not anxious like a kid in a candy store {although maybe if I looked at it that way as God having some incredible things in store for me} but anxious fear, heavy, overwhelming fear. Which is why I am bringing this to you Lord.
Lord, I want you to lead me. I want to seek what you have planned out for me. Lord use me & let your will be done.

My heart aches for what is happening in our world, in our country, in my province, and in my town. My soul is in pain worrying how I am going to raise my tribe to be God-fearing & God-following people.

   WHO AM I?
I want God to unlock my heart and show me who I am and what His purpose is for me. I want to be doing something to make a difference in a falling apart earth. Right now, I think that is just raising these little people. And until God tells me otherwise, that is what I will do. I will wait. I will pray. I will seek. HIM.

Thank you Lord for creating me. Thank you for loving me unconditionally. Thank you God.

My plans are not my own. I give it all to You.

Creative Corner Challenges - All White + One Other Color

Hi all! Welcome to another fabulous week of creations found over at Creative Corner Challenges! The theme for this week is All White + One Other Color. I'm not gonna lie...this.was.tough. I spent a great deal of time thinking on what I should do for this project. I went through THREE images because I added one extra color that I shouldn't have!

I am loving the anchor image (found at Michaels in the clearance bin!), and I always associate it with the word hope -->see Hebrews 6:19.
Here is my card that I created!

I hope you will join us and create something fabulous!
