A little journal therapy;)
So earlier this month we went to a marriage event where Warren Barfield was singing and heard the song "Redbird" for the first time. It totally made me cry! It was written to his wife as a love song because of the redbird's dedication and loyalty. Even in the dead of winter and mounds of snow the redbird never migrates or leaves. It resonated with me. It made me think of my childhood dreams of dancing with my husband at my wedding to "Lady in Red" and the poem I wrote to him about how Chinese culture says a woman in red is destined for a happy marriage. It brought to mind the coincidence that the bird is the symbol I use for my children and my "flock"...I have them tattooed on my body and I even called Liam my baby bird when I was pregnant. Then the natural connection of the dedication stated in 1 Corinthians 13:7 came to mind. We read these verses at our wedding. So much meaning to me. I love my redbird and I'm gonna be his...forever and I thank God for sending him to me every single day I wake up with air in my lungs.

Embarking on a new artistic and spiritual journey. Over the last few months I feel like God is trying to get my attention...to tell me something so I have decided to start an prayer journal in the form of an art journal. I'm not a traditional journal kinda gal. Writing just does not come easily to me. But I love paper and paper crafts so here we go. I've been dabbling around with watercolors and I'm totally in love. Here is my cover and first few pages.
For the "Trials" page, I had had a particularly hard morning when I when to God in prayer during my quiet time and asked God to reveal himself in his word to me...this what he gave me. Job 1:12. I think God was trying to remind me that he has my back and I have "first world problems"! LOL
