a message just for me
I often listen to one of the local Christian radio stations when I am in my car. This morning on my way home from the water aerobics class at the Y, I really wasn't in the mood to have any noise, but something inside told me to turn the radio on anyway. As I was taking in the sermon, I couldn't help but feel that the message was being spoken to me, as if it were written for me and the struggle that i am facing within myself. It was a remarkable feeling that washed over me. I just know it was sent to me as a gift from God and I need to find it within myself to make the most of the words and lighten the burden on my heart. Sadly I am not sure if I want to allow those words, this gift, to be opened and used because it just means I will be vulnerable to even more pain and heartache and letdown which is sure to hurt me even more the next time this burden is laid before me. *sigh* I am tired and I know that this message was sent for me to give me some energy and hope, but I am not finding that right now. Maybe tomorrow. Or next week. Who knows when I will find the right time to open it. At least for now I have it to hold onto and ponder how it will be used in the manner it was given. It will be available when I need it most. I find great comfort in that.
Onto scrappy stuff... the frame and birdhouse I created with one of the two gorgeous May kits from Create My Keepsake. I used the Raspberry Limeade kit for them. They will be available first thing tomorrow morning here for non-members and they are sure to go quickly.
This is the card I created with this weeks sketch on Di's blog. As always, the girls on the team outdid themselves and it's pure eye candy to see their takes each week!
I am off to play some Mario Kart with the kids, or should I say get my butt kicked. *giggle*
