I'm a dreamer.
I come from a long line of dreamers.
Day or Night...it matters not to me!!!
Did you know that God wants us to dream.....he wants to throw open the doors of heaven and bless the socks right off of us!
He is The Great Dream Giver!!
"Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, "Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain." And God granted his request."
I Chronicles 4:10
In The Prayer of Jabez.....God wanted to bust open the borders for Jabez! In fact the Hebrew meaning of Enlarge my Territory/Borders really means.....give me more sheep! (hahaha)
"When you don't move the mountains I need you to move.
When you don't part the waters I wish I could walk through.
When you don't give the answers I cry out to you.
I will Trust In You."
When our son was a little guy...he's anything but that now.....he would tell me that when he read or thought he saw pictures and saw the words being spelled out in his little head.
I know now that is a sign of a GENIUS!!! :) Because I do it too!!!! :)
WARNING...THIS IS LONG!
I'm not very good at listening to directions. That's just the honest truth.
When our son was in Kindergarten, his standardized testing came back and said he had advanced "listening" skills....he followed directions very well....OH REALLY??? See, I was his teacher....and his Mum....and well, I knew better. But dang if he wasn't able to listen and follow directions on that test!!!
If I ever have any really important documents that require a signature, I get The Hired Hand to read them....cause apparently, I don't have very good reading skills either!!!!
I'm taking what seems to be a gazillion art classes this year....and I say year because at least 3 are 365 days long!
That's unprecedented commitment for me!!! I am ever the optimist!
The class that started yesterday is The Documented Life Project 2016 The Unplanner!!!!
Oh my goodness...if that doesn't fit me to the T! I thought of all the years in my life....I need this NOW!!! I need it to document what's going to be a C R A Z Y ride!!!! I'm all in....all 2 feet jumped in for whatever God has in store for us this awesome new year!!!!
I have never had much success with "Planners".....seriously who does? Ok...maybe you do, but I usually fly by the seat of my pants and am so spontaneous that planning just seems to get in my way. As I write that I think....hold on there cowgirl, that's not entirely true. I do like a little planning. I suppose I like "knowing" what the future holds....enough that I can at least be prepared.
Anywho.....this is my Unplanner!!! It's extremely whimsical artsy craftsy......almost to the point of overload for me!!! I do like most of my life...except my art room to be organized...you know....organized chaos! I can truly only take messes for so long....then it's a major overhaul!
So my Unplanner is not too much slap here and slap there kinda artsy craftsy....it's got a little bit of Zen going on and I incorporate what I've been learning along the way by some awesome teachers...that's what it's all about.....then you form your own style. Therefore, my cover will stay as simple as possible....with my reminder to Embrace this new year!
But the inside cover shows my true colors!!!! Because I am Wild At Heart!!! Ever seeking the one who holds my life in His hands. Desperate for Him.
With my monthly goals right there to pursue......this ought to be interesting!!!! Goals?
My daily devo inspirationals tucked away in my bi-monthly envelopes for me to dig out and remind myself that "it's going to be ok".
And of course the monthly schedule...so I don't ask too many questions!!!
Just keepin it REAL!
