He Raised The Bar


He Raised The Bar & I Called
I know I've said this already but I'll say it again. I love, love, love my little 3x5 notebook. Its small enough for me to explore different things.
I added to my base page a torn sewing pattern, the directions and parts of the pattern envelope. Then I used my Eric Carle primary watercolors to mix and color the page. Words were from a box and magazine page. Her evening dress is from a magazine. Don't you just love how it turned out. And last I added a little "bling" with a cut up sequin.
Impatience cost me the run of letters on "He raised the bar". Next time I will use my blow dryer, lol.
Save The Date!
Hab 2:2 - says to "write the vision and make it plain for others" I'm still working on writing it to make it plain. The Renaissance Soul has really helped me understand myself. I'm not flighty.
I know without a doubt God has spoken specific things for my life.
dreams i will not doubt. He will bring them to pass.
a poem by Me
i sit, i wait, i fret, i regret;
so what they say - it'll go away
but not today, not ever i say
letting go its not for me - its life.
i wanna be free, i wanna expand,
enlarge the tent, make more room
for that true, believing soul
i found it to be Me.

Your art piece is beautiful and touching. I love it. Your poem is even more so. I can relate to both so much! Your blog is special and inspiring. Especially the spiritual part. I, like you, am a born again Christian, so I really appreciate what you share on your blog. Thank you so much.
