Selfie Time! New SWAT Drill with a Fabulous Prize.

Hey there! Making a quick stop to drop off my newest page. This one was a hard one. The new challenge for S.W.A.T. is to scrap a selfie. That means I have to scrap about myself! Not an easy thing since I'd rather scrap the ones I love. I snapped this selfie over much teasing and laughter at my niece's wedding. Oh how my boys and nephews and nieces thought it was hilarious that I couldn't snap a good selfie and kept trying and trying. (Especially when they tried to get me to make a duck face... we'll save that, never! That is long since deleted!) Anyway, of the million I took I did come up with one I thought wasn't too bad and put some of my thoughts down from being 40.

The journaling may be hard to read so here it is:
What I Know at 40 I Wish I Knew Then-
1. The things that seemed so big then don't matter now. Learn to relax and breathe.
2. Losing my faith is not an option. There is no way I'm doing this on my own. God has the reigns.
3. Give grace. You never know what someone else is going through. Let go of judgement and just love!

Oh, how those life lessons seem so simple but they are hard to come by. This last year has been a tough one for me personally as well as the family as a whole. Some days I wonder exactly where things are headed and how we are going to take the next step forward. It's those times I find myself clinging to God and his promises. It would be easy to let go right now, but my faith keeps me hanging on.

Thanks for stopping by. Creative Embellishments is sponsoring this month's challenges. You don't want to miss that. Snap a selfie today and join us. We'd love to see what you create.
