Like a kick in your "soul pants" to help ya get through the week.
Last week, Blake (my 4 year old), had accidentally spilled some make-up glitter. And when he was explaining what happened he said, "but mama, it's so GLITTERFUL"....
and in that second I thought and said, "you're right baby, IT IS, soooooo GLITTERFUL"...
And that is how all kinds of things in our life can be, that look like accidents, mistakes, mess-ups or hurts....to the world they may look like "mess-ups", but really they are "glitterful" spills that strengthen our character, make us stronger, and build determination to go after something with all that's in us and not take life or other peoples "no's" for an answer.
Take your past or current "life accident"...and think of Blakey's "glitterful" spill, and how beauty can come from a not-so-pretty "mis-hap". God will make beautiful things of our life- no matter how bad we think it's a mess! I've had some glittery things found after some pretty "non-glittery" and rather ugly situations in my life! Never look at the ugly parts...always look for
I love that saying: you don't become a great sailor, sailing only smooth seas
You become great for having gone through something, not giving up, and for letting yourself become better and not bitter.
So let go of feeling like your life is full of "things gone wrong"...and look at how those very things that "went wrong" can be the very thing that make awesome things in your life "go right"! And start looking for the "glitterful" things all around!
Don't be a victim- be victorious.
Don't be a whiner- be a winner.
Now let's go show this life of yours, what you can do, be and accomplish.
Put the past where it belongs, behind you, and start looking for all that glitter!
hugs and handfuls of glitter, kandee
