I received such an amazing gift from an angel the other day. First let me explain the reason for lack of posts lately. I have started working full time. I am just starting to adjust to work life as I have not physically worked outside of my home in over 5 years. It has been a challenge , but we are making it work. A few days ago I had posted one of my hand lettering images on the journal bible group.
I was so excited to share the picture as I have been wanting a journal bible for quite some time. While waiting for the chance to purchase one, a woman messaged me. She wanted to send me a bible. I was shocked and in awe. It was by far one of the greateadt gifts a girl could ask for.
Upon opening my bible I felt lost. Where would I even begin to start? It felt foreign to me, but I knew it was time. Its been time for quite a while now. Like a rebellious little child I was mad at God, mad at what he put me through. Mad at what he put my children through, but in the end he would make me see that it was necessary, that it would make me stronger and open my eyes to a world where I was needed. A world of homeless children and families, men that fought for our country and the elderly that were left in their last days without family. He opened my eyes and helped me to be a voice, a voice for all those less fortunate. And even though , in my weakest times when I could have taken the "easy" way out and gone down a dark path of emptiness and false happiness, he still held me tight and somewhere deep inside the light was shining once again.
