Random Prettiness

Sometimes life hands you hard things. They may be caused by illness, financial problems, loss of a loved one,  trouble at work or major disappointments. This past week I experienced a major disappointment. And it was hard. Here is my first smash journal page from this summer. It explains it all.

I was totally gutted. But after a couple of days I began to accept it. And as I sat in my studio/office I realized that I feel better when I really look at all the pretty things I have surrounded myself with. So tonight I decided to just give you a quick post with some random pictures of the prettiness I’m surrounded by.

So there you have it. A small sample of the eye candy I get to look at every day. But the biggest thing I had to lift my spirits was this assurance:

And we know that ALL things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.        Romans 8:28

Royal Caribbean Lines and our travel agent were able to re-book us on the Grandeur of The Seas with the same itinerary, just later in the summer. The best part is we have been up-graded to large ocean view cabins at no extra cost. God is so good!!!
