Do you know it?????

On Friday I had so many really productive meetings. On my way to meet with Gentry (yes, thankfully she helped in setting up this blog and my design team blog), I stopped by Dear Lizzie. It is a girly girl must see store in Alpine, Utah. It is definitely a store that you can walk around and feel the love of all things that are beautiful and feminine. It is full of CHARM! I had about thirty minutes of "downtime" so I walked and absorbed the charm of the boutique. Then I saw a bowl of gold charms. The word that jumped out to me was BLESSED. I would definitely say that this word is one that I use daily. This single word comes to my mind often (even in times of trials in life and now Ty's cancer). I instantly knew I would buy it. Then in another bowl, I saw a few gold circle metal charms. The selection was sparse and I knew a T would be hard to find. I looked and and was shocked to see my wanted letter. I smiled KNOWING that I had found something special to me-

I bought the two charms and then added them to a gold ball necklace. I put it on and took this photo. My heart is thankful for the reminder. I love it!

Now, I heard something in church that I simply knew I had to share. It was probably about three weeks ago.  I always journal and write things down in my notebook. I keep a notebook in my purse. Daily.... I will take my notebook out and write down things or thoughts that inspire me. LIFE is so inspiring. So here was the message. I know I cannot share it the same way this beautiful girl shared it... but here it is in my words.

Do you KNOW your worth?
Do you know how special YOU truly are?

Often WE are so hard on ourselves. We look at the BAD in ourselves and get down on those imperfections. We are all human and we are not perfect. We each make mistakes and do things that we regret. Sometimes we feel that we are just DAMAGED. You feel that you are not good enough. If you are religious you may feel that you are not worthy of God's love.

The pretty girl in church talked about a crisp new $100.00 bill. She talked about how we each are just like this... we are all $100.00 bills. We have value and who doesn't want a $100.00 bill right??? She asked who would want this brand new $100.00. Then she said... WE ARE HUMAN and we all sin and do things and with this we can become damaged, torn or distressed. So imagine this SAME $100.00 bill. Maybe, it is now torn, crumpled... maybe it was wet and is dried. If you then take this same $100.00 bill now...

DOES IT MATTER THAT IT IS WRINKLED, or discolored a bit?

She asked everyone... Would you still want this $100.00 bill if I gave it to you?

I know I said YES in my mind. Then she said, that is like GOD. He still loves us just the same... even when we have done things we are not proud of. We are still of GREAT worth. YOU are still of GREAT worth. No matter what we look like, what we weigh... HE loves us.

So friends- I just had to share this. I know so many of you. There are thousands of you that I don't know. I wish I did. I am thankful for the ability to blog and connect with you. I know that is ONE of the reasons I still make it a priority to travel and teach. I am always inspired by you.

You can find me this month at Scrapbook Daisy's in Long Beach, CA and then at the Scrapdoodles Event in Fredricksburg, Virginia.

Your necklace was meant to be since you found the exact word and letter you needed. Would love to attend one of your workshops but they are always to far away from where I live. The next best thing would be a dvd of you doing a step by step project. Would buy it in a minute and I bet a lot of others would also. Have a lot of your collections also your Ebosser and love them all. Bless you and your family.

Thank you for sharing. I was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer and I can relate to feeling blessed. It's something that is so hard to explain, but I know in my heart and soul God is taking care of me. I will pray for your family.

Keep up the GREAT work!! You truly are an inspiration.

Dear Teresa,

Thank you for your message which I appreciate a lot at this moment. After reading your message, I really can see...I am blessed and should thank God for my life.

I would love to join a workshop of you. Perhaps one time you will be teaching here in Switzerland. That would be great! I love your products.

May God bless you and your family.
