A while back I decided to move my blog away from WordPress.com to a self-hosted blog called A Journey to a Masterpiece. To skip all of the details except to say technology isn’t my strong point I decided to move combine the content from that blog to my original blog here at WordPress.com so that I could just blog again and leave the techy stuff to the wonderful happiness engineers they have over here 😀
This was the about me page from that A Journey to a masterpiece.
I don’t have a whole lot to say about me other than I am just a normal lady who lives a normal life. I am a wife, mother and grandmother. I love sunrises, sunsets and flowers. My favorite place to spend time is at the ocean even though I live right smack in the middle of Missouri, USA which is just about the farthest place away from the ocean as possible. I am a pretty quiet person and a bit shy until you get to know me then I have been told I chatter just a tiny bit too much.
The story behind this blog is I spent 47 years of my life always feeling as if I was searching for something but was never quite able to figure out what I was searching for.
In January of 2010, my life changed when I realized that the God I had spent years denying existed, really did exist. That was the year I found Jesus….or actually, I guess I should say Jesus found me.
I had been lost all of those years even though I did not ever really realize that I was lost.
Jesus rescued me even though I did not want to admit I was in need of rescuing and from the moment he rescued me my life became a whirlwind of change.
Looking back over the past 5 years I can see how much God has changed me and my life is so much better! For the first time ever I am no longer searching because I have finally found what was missing.
Though I know my life is far from perfect, the changes have been so amazing, the darkness I always felt like I carried inside is now gone and has been replaced with beautiful light.
I realize now it’s not what we have or how we look that make us beautiful, its who we have inside our hearts. Jesus can take the most messed up broken people and put all of the pieces back together, making us beautiful.
Ephesians 2:10 – For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
He can create a masterpiece in all of us.
If you are here reading this you too are God’s Masterpiece and I thank you for coming by. I hope something here on this blog will help to inspire you on your own journey to becoming the beautiful Masterpiece God created you to be.
