Tackle It Tuesday

Ok, first time Tackle It post and I'm not sure this will be a weekly thing, however, yesterday I was going to just clean everything up and hang my new painting, but thought "Wait! This would make a great Tackle It Tuesday post!"

Anyways... the before...


And... the after...About the new artwork. We were at Family Christian where I was drawn to it and fell totally in "like" with it :-) Saw there was a 50% sticker on it and said, "Honey?!" Checked what it was 50% off of and said, "Whoa, um please?!" (definitely was still gonna be quite a splurge). My husband liked it very much as well and saw my attachment. Got to the counter and it rang up 75% off. I nearly cried right there. This verse has meant so much now and really, since getting saved in college. I tend to try and run ahead of God and His gentle reminder that He is in control, despite my desires and my plans, has always been a comfort to me (especially when things happen that are totally out of my control/Nathan). We (I) need to stop the busyness, stop the "demanding" prayers, and simply be still. Nothing I could ever want could be better for me than what His will is for me! :-)

That verse is one of my favorites... Sometimes God has to put us on our backs in bed to remind us of that... (yeah, been there done that )...

Love your blog and your tackle job looks great! :)
