Gods sketch

This weekend I was able to finally get some scrapbooking done- it's my therapy, my stress reliever, my addiction! I actually finished 3 pages! Thats pretty good for me- I'm a very slow scrapper. I was working on one page with a sketch (from 52 sketches, 52 weeks) and as I was working I was thinking that our lives are like the sketch. We start out with an idea of what our life will or should look like, and as we go through different circumstances and situations our life is altered from the original "sketch" we had in mind. Sometimes we don't even recognize what we originally started with! God is in control of our "sketch", and he knows what our finished masterpiece will look like (I'm not calling my scrapbook pages masterpieces, by the way!). He knows the plans he has for us, and how it will shape our lives, even as we're struggling against it because its not in OUR plans. Anyways I hope that makes sense... Its so hard for me to put my thoughts into words sometimes.

And heres one of the pages I finished- the pics were from last fall-
ya I'm just a little behind :o)

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you, declares The Lord,
plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give
you a hope and a future.
