Fear.  When do we learn to fear?  Every morning, Cambelle jumps off the changing table into my arms.  She likes it when I don’t catch her right away – when I hesitate and let her feet sweep the floor.  When will she begin to fear the “jump” and the “what ifs”?  What is it in life that keeps us from jumping? And why would we ever NOT jump to the perfect and dependable Heavenly Father?  For He has never failed us – and He never will.

I’m excited about the upcoming Beautiful Art of Balance Workshop in April.  It has been a process of working through my fears, but yet listening to our Father’s voice in the midst and realizing that what He has given me to give away is more important than my fear.  I’m looking forward to all of our girls who will be with us and those yet to sign up… I have been praying for each one of you (truly).  I have been praying for all the details to work out beautifully as a confirmation that this is may be just the place He wants you to be for that weekend.  Praying for our time to be rich and deep and that we can work through those fears to allow us to hear Him more clearly.

So, my challenge for you is to jump. If you know the Lord is leading you towards a certain direction in your life, just jump.  There’s no one better to jump to. And He would never ever not be there to catch you.

Typically, on Wednesdays, our studio has a little contest called “Wordless Wednesday”.  But today, we wanted to take a moment to pause and reflect on this week’s storm that has wrought miles of destruction but also knitted together a community, one that we are proud to be a part of.  Thank you to those who have reached out to our community, prayed for us and given generously to these families in this time of great challenge.  Wordless Wednesday will return next week, but we wanted to share with you a photo Shannon took of the clouds the morning after the tornado…. Here’s the story…

“That morning, I woke up and asked the Lord speak to me by giving me a really powerful image for the day… the day after this terrible tornado ripped through our state.  These are the clouds he showed me… and as I studied it, I saw a woman’s face emerge, looking downward, kissing the hand of a child.  But it wasn’t until a few hours later that I saw the Lord’s powerful hand below her, palm outstretched, holding and cradling.  He brought to mind the verse, “Jesus wept.” John 11:35 and He reminded me that His amazing presence covers this city and these families.  I’ve had a few people ask for more clarification on the image, so I decided to sketch over the image and show it below the original image.  I hope this image is a strong, loving reminder of our great Comforter.”

Now if this image does not get you thinking about a summer vacation we are not sure what would…..Post a word that best describes this photo to you and if your word is chosen we send you a gift in the mail.  It’s called Wordless Wednesday and we are glad you are here.

I am so glad to be his momma.

It’s here again… Wordless Wednesday.  Leave a comment with one word that describes this photo.  The best word wins a fun “something” in the mail from us!  Looking forward to hearing from you!
