"I don't have the right to give up. I don't have the right to give in. You always pull me through so I'm going to put my trust in you. " These are lines to a song sung by a great encourager, Yolanda Adams. Sometimes is just the slap into reality I need.
This Footprints poem is another one of my favorites. Like the Prayer of Serenity, my first memories of this poem was also at my grandmother and aunt's house. I spent a lot of time there when I was a teenager. I get goosebumps when I look back on the times in my life where I felt lost and abandoned and couldn't see God, only to realize that God had been carrying me through those tough times. I mentioned watercoloring this last month when I was frustrated. This beautiful stamp gives just enough of that poem for the front of a card, I think.
Well, it's Monday morning -- a new day and a new week. I see a lot of potential in all the newness, don't you?
One more daughter to get off to college this week and then back to my own projects. Be blessed today!
