Artistic Mother - Looking for the Missing Piece of Who You Were Created to be? (and a Giveaway of The Artistic Mother book)




So many of us struggle to complete the
image of who we were created
to be.
There are so many different pieces
to the puzzle,
wife, mother, sister,
caretaker, provider.
We try to say yes to each
request, each demanding a part
of us.
Some of us even try to fit in
pieces that don't really fit,
they are not meant to be part
of our puzzle.
God created, us each in His image,
to fulfill a part of His plan.
If we make God a part
of our decisions we are
less apt to try and fit
in the ill fitting pieces that
don't belong.
Put God first and the rest
of the puzzle will fall into place.

  3. Trudy, thanks for the description of trying to accomplish "something" with your toddler in tow... although I WAS glad it wasn't at my house, we're not far off from that scene, either. It seems I'm outnumbered, 2 toddlers to 1 me. Good times!!!
