30 Days of grateFULness (day 18)

Getting an early jump-start this morning. Hubby is working and then I think we are heading to Traverse City for the afternoon... we have not been to TC since August!!!  Going for no particular reason, just sometimes you need a change in scenery.

On day 18, I am so grateFUL that I am significant... I may not feel like... I may not even think it, but Papa God told me so in His Word.  "Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them!" Psalm 139:16-17
 Growing up I always felt like I didn't belong and you know, especially as a teenager, you just want to fit in, but I never did really.  I accepted Christ into my life at a young age, so I always knew I was "not of this world" but that didn't make it easy to be different so many times.  I probably even resented it at times... that my values and moral/spiritual compass wouldn't let me go have "fun" that everyone else was having.  Not saying I was perfect... I got away with plenty, but I never stepped too far over the line before the Holy Spirit redirected.  When I read chapter 139 of Psalms and especially those verses above... I am just amazed!  Papa not only created me and loves me, but He sees me as significant... and He sees you as significant. Now, that is something to be grateFUL for... don't you think?

Here is a little birthday card I made... it is my sister, Renee, that taught me how to do the owl... I think it is a woot! (sorry couldn't resist!)
with a grateFUL HEART, carin
