Behind The Scenes - Big O' Bowls


 
 
Linking up with Crystal Stine for Behind The Scenes today.....
 
This picture makes me laugh.  We were at lunch and taking pictures of our massive bowls of cheese and guacamole.  No real food.  Just our favorite.  Because there is NOTHING cheese can't fix :)  She said "I can't get your head AND the cheese in the picture!!!"  So, I decided to be flexible....and she said "That picture...that's the real you, the one I know...." I forget sometimes, who that girls is.  The days press in, responsibilities linger, I let things get to me....
 
And in the moments when I let go, even for just a little while, I remember.....I know the days of gentle and peaceable will return.  Things won't always be like this.  The purpose He has for it will prevail and the sun will shine again.  So for now, this is my reminder on days when I might rather pull the covers over my head.  She's in there :) So please pass the chips.....

  1. Oh yes, the routine of life, the responsibilities that overwhelm, the pain we have to process, sometimes hide who we really are. I love how this picture reminds you of the beautiful person God sees when he looks at you! Hope you see more and more of her in the days to come!
