Absolute Last Pic of the Heart~







I promise this is the LAST pic of the colored metal heart...honest! I finally finished it today~ and I'm wearing it right now. I always wear all of my creations to be sure that they hang properly and no wires stick out to scratch, etc. I just wanted you to see the last-spiffed-up-ready-to-wear picture of this piece. Selfish!!

Today I received an interesting forward from my Auntie M. It's credited to Rick Warren, and he mentioned something that made me think.

"Life is a series of problems: Either you are in one now, you're just coming out of one, or you're getting ready to go into another one.

The reason for this is that God is more interested in your character than your comfort.

God is more interested in making your life holy than He is in making your life happy.

We can be reasonably happy here on earth, but that's not the goal of life. The goal is to grow in character, in Christ likeness."

Wow. Definitely good food for thought. Bless you, all my blog friends and may God hold you so close as He develops your (and my) character.

Hi Chris. You are an inspiration! God is more interested in our character than our comfort. I learn that more and more the older I get!
