You guys, by now, know that I love creating things. I can't tell you how many times I have said - "I need to create something every day" (whether it be sewing, cooking, card making, or journaling). Something tangible of my thoughts, my ideas.. of me, out here for the world (or at least my little world).

They help me see Jesus in the simple and the everyday. If you feel stressed out, overwhelmed, and lonely - her words will remind you of Someone greater who never leaves.
This post really spoke to me and I wanted to share it with you, I bet some of you can relate. So go on over here and read it.
