Thank you for hanging in there with me. I can't believe it's already faith walk friday #7. I have really enjoyed sharing with you each week and hearing your encouraging words of wisdom as we walk through this together.
On being creative - It is my belief that all of us possess within us the power to create. Whether it be with words, with food, with paper, with fabric, with a paint brush or with a camera. The same God that created the oceans, the mountains and the sunset, created you and I, in His image, with his creative flair.
With that fact established, the question then becomes, how do I use that desire and ability to create in a way that brings honor and glory to Him?
I've shared before that my girls were adopted through the foster care system. I don't know if I've shared how terrified I was that first week we brought them home. I remember calling my mom in tears wondering if I was up to such a huge task. Would I be able to offer these precious little ones the love and security they deserved. Would I be able to make them feel special and chosen? What were we thinking when we said, "Yes" to this calling? I was blessed to have been surrounded with family and friends ready to encourage me in words and actions, to remind me that what I lacked, God would provide in abundance.
I would love to find a way to use my love of hand work to bless children in foster care. It is my hearts desire and fervent prayer to help those children know they are special and not forgotten.
I want them to feel wrapped in the love of a Father that is never to busy to hear the cry of the smallest child. I'm not sure what that looks like right now. I have a few ideas, I'm just waiting on God's confirmation with an open heart and willing hands.
