I've changed the title of the blog to messy.beautiful from Shimmer & Tulle. Why? Well, in the last two years, I've learned that yes, as a daughter of the King, I need to shimmer and let me light shine and there's a definite importance to remembering and seeing the beauty in everything. However, for myself, I've been on a transformation where God is showing me that it's not just the blatant beautiful things that are well, beautiful. It's in the messy details as well. My dining table that post-lunch looks like a hurricane passed through the room --- instead of getting frustrated and annoyed by it (and overwhelmed by the mundane "I have to clean it again"?! idea) --- well, God is showing me that it's a beautiful thing, for it means that my life is full of children, that we have a roof over our heads, that we have food on the table, that my kids are engaging in life and with each other, that my kids are full.of.life. (And abundantly exceedingly so!!) :)
That's just one example.
But either which way, I am the clay that is being molded.
And it's a messy.beautiful experience being in the midst of God's hand.
