I am just finishing school for graphic arts and it is always exciting to finish a project that was challenging and rewarding all at the same time.

I have recently been working on a project for a non profit organization and had the opportunity to create their logo. It was really cool since my ideas really gelled with what they were looking for.

Anyways... I just looked on their website for some information that i needed for the paper i am writing on the project itself. To my great and joyous surprise, the logo is already up!

Its a great feeling seeing your work out there for everyone to see!

Oh Joseph

Joseph was a man for few words.

In the bible, Joseph is never quoted for having said anything. But he was the man of action. The Angels brought him many of the messages. The Angel told Joseph to take Mary and Jesus and flee to Egypt. Joseph needed to take them to protect them from the impending dangers.

Joseph is the protector of Jesus. He watched over him, cared for him and kept him from harm.

Joseph died before Jesus started his ministry, which ended with his crucifixtion, death and ressurection. Do you really think that Joseph - the man that spent his life protecting Jesus - would have ever watch him die in such a harsh way?

Over Joseph's dead body would Jesus have been on that cross. Maybe that was the whole point?

I and Love and You

"There is no surprise more magical than the surprise of being loved. It is God's finger on man's shoulder." ~ Charles Morgan

This is a brilliant entry. It really breaks down the truth about love... something we rarely hear today.

It says so much more than words

I am smiling right now, sitting in my jammies and just smiling.

The sound of guitar fills my little room and but it fills my heart too. I love the sound, the energy and joy that is coming from the guitarist. Its a beautiful thing to receive a private acoustic show.

Music can say so much more that you can say in words.

Music belongs to my soul. It nourishes it and is a true gift from God. Look at all the Psalms and the Song of Songs. Look at King David who danced and rejoices in song.

God shows us in a way we can always recognize the amount of love He has for us.

What we wear.

A few weeks ago, I lost a pair of jeans. My favorite pair of "make my butt look nice" jeans. I like them a lot. I went a week without finding them and actually had friends praying to St. Anthony... I was desperate to find them. (and eventually I did).

Anyways in the course of my jeans going missing I realized something about the clothes we wear. They give us a lot of confidence, can change our mood or how you see yourself that day.

You look at yourself differently when you are in something that you feel good in.
This world makes such a big eal out wearing the right thing or hanging the right brands in your closet and I don't like it.
That being said if you are comfortable with WHO you are then what you wear is just packaging.

But it is funny the things that change our moods. Packaging or not, its good to feel beautiful and stop letting that dress sit in the back of your closet or saving that amazing top hat for a special occasion.

Be confident in WHO you are and more importantly THE ONE who put you here and gave me all my curves or you none at all. Let God's love be what people see, not the brand.
