Something happens when I step into this virtual world of Blogging. As soon as I enter, it feels like home. Thank you for being here, reading and sharing my words. The reason I come in is to share, but the reason I stay is for you.
You can always come here to find encouragement. That is my purpose in life is to love people and help them along their journey. I don’t claim to have all the answers, just sharing what is on my heart and what God is showing me today. We can walk and learn this life together, which is so much better than alone. This life is our gift and it’s meant to be opened and enjoyed daily. How we use it directs our path, but I thank God today, I only stumble and don’t fall.
This is one of the first memes I made. The first few I made have words on them out of a journal I carry around all the time. When God tells me something, I write it down. It may be something I’ve heard before, or something original. Any worthwhile thought gets written in that book.
God prompted me months ago to start making memes. I looked at free software online and was discouraged rather quickly. I’m not super technical, but I can usually figure things out. Some of these software’s are not meant to be figured out. They are merely there to frustrate.
PicMonkey is one that is zero fun. It has all the whistles and bells, but it even frustrates my teenage daughter, who has artistic ability. Red flag number one and the name says it all. Coming across the one I was able to use was a God send. It’s called Picfont and again, the name speaks.
So when is something ‘good for you’? When it feeds your soul is my indication. There are going to be lessons in life, but should life be one continuous lesson? I think not. If that were the case, I would feel beat up, worn down and defeated, which is the complete opposite of who I am. I wouldn’t be able to share my gift and lift people up if I were down.
If something is good for you, it can be good to you in a loving manner. My mother was good to me and what she taught me was good for me, but eating all those veggies when I was little did not feel like love to me.
This last meme was the first one I made. If you know me at all, you should know, this is my mantra for my life. It’s what I had to tell myself everyday for a year until I could look comfortably in the mirror and own it. Feel free to click, print and tape it to your mirror. That is what I had to do and it was hard work, but it laid the foundation of who I am today.
Picfont is good to me and is set up to lovingly assist. I will grow and get better at making memes and dive in to more challenging software. It will have to be good to me to be good for me, or I will not stick with it. Challenge is good and helps us grow, but it needs to do so with love.
