I don't know how I'm going to go at blogging but I'm going to at least give it a try :) so please be gentle with me. Golly this is harder than I thought!!
Ok..calm yourself Melissa...I guess I can start with how I came to be here in the first place...I've discovered that I love Shabby Chic and I would google images and they would lead me to people whom also love Shabby Chic and their blogs and it just went from there. Some of these creative ladies are also christians and reading there blogs was just so wonderful and inspiring. So a BIG thank you to all those ladies once I work out how to add you or what you do to add as the favorite blog places to visit are I will :) Oh I do hope I'm not confusing anyone, cause I tend to confuse myself..hehe.I'm on a journey to discover all God has created me to be. I'm learning about the beautiful Father heart of God and His love for me. This is taking time because of me and my hang ups...thank goodness God is patient :) I'm a bit of a dreamer and a hopeful romantic....notice I said..hopeful NOT hopeless..hehe trying to be positive with what I speak :) anyway getting back to what I was saying..hmmm what was I saying?!? sorry!! I use to try and see the beauty in everything....but of the past months I have been no good mentally, physically, emotionally & spiritually and I was losing me I was just so confused but...don't ya just love buts?! In that pit God was with me even if I didn't think He was or even didn't want Him to be, He was there!!!
I know that with His help...and yes the penny has dropped...I can not do life without Him. I want to see the world and everyone and everything in it including myself through His eyes. I don't want to go through life I want to live it!!! I want to take in the beauty of all He has created, each an everyday. I want to unwrap the gifts God has given me and start using them to bring Him glory. One of those gifts is decorating. I have always wanted my home to be a place where people can come and feel peace and love...there was NO peace or love in my place it was a place of clutter and chaos and no love....but!!!! That is changing, thank You Father!!
Anywaybefore you all fall asleep I better wrap this up, and thank you soooooo much for taking the time to stop by. I do hope & pray that God will use me in any way possible to bless you :)
Take Care & thank you for inspiring and blessing me. May Gods love transform your life. LoveMelissa :)
The word of God is like a mirror in that it shows us who we really are. It is like a map because it shows us where we need to go. It is like a portrait for it paints for us a picture of who God is.
Kind words are short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia~
