here it is, new year's eve day. i can hardly believe that an entire year has unraveled right before my eyes. where has the year gone? the older i get the faster the time seems to go by.
as i look back over the year i have many memories, some great, some good, some not so good, and some truly stepping stones for personal growth. i am learning to move within all these moments better, learning to accept god's grace when i am inflexible and think i know best.
while it is so easy for the unpleasant memories to stay in the front of the line in my memory recall, i am reminding myself that god's plan for me is truly divine and i am exactly where i am suppose to be, not only in this moment, but in every given moment that i am alive. so as i look back over the year i smile as i recall all of my memorable experiences. each one has brought me closer to fulfilling another year in my life's journey of personal and spiritual growth. i give thanks for having so many moments to teach me how to be better a person.
as 2012 approaches, it's natural to start to feel anticipation for what is in store in the new year and to leave the unpleasantness of 2011 behind. i am gently reminded to not dwell in the past nor look forward, but rather, to live in the moment of the here and now which is the only moment where i can truly be all that i am meant to be.
i hope you have a wonderful day filled with many blessings.
god bless you all. enjoy your holiday.

i just finished making another journal. this picture is of the front cover. i love making the journals as there is something about the creating of them that is so soothing to me. i filled this one with almost all watercolor paper since i've been in a watercolor and doodling spurt.

i made a journal out of an old book by gutting the pages and then filling it with pages with scraps of different sized watercolor paper that i had laying around. i drew images and designs in a black pitt pen and then used watercolors to create the pages. i'll be sharing some more of those pages with you in future posts.
