Live creatively, friends...........

............Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that.
 Don't be impressed with yourself.
 Don't compare yourself with others.
 Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can
 with your own life.
Galatians 6:1, 4--5
From "The Message" (MSG Bible)

The piece of work is just outstanding!! I love the way you do the flowers.

I'm too critical of myself and always wonder what others will think of my work, so I need to take the scriptures and live by them.

Hi Kathleen,

Your embroidery as always is fabulous. I knew that scripture has to come from The Message because I have it. I love the way that it reads in modern day language. I really must write that scripture down and keep it nearby. It says it all.

Pink Sparkles for your week,
Stephanie Suzanne ♥

I've read many bloggers of late who compare their lives, their work, their homes to those of others and feel they don't quite measure up. I have never understood that way of thinking. I am here to be me, nothing more, nothing less. This is a great reminder of that. Such lovely handiwork. Happy hands, happy heart! Blessings, Tammy
