Be Strong, Be Brave, Be Fearless!

New Year, New Goals

Happy New Year Lovely Creatives!!

Can you believe we are reaching the end of January already?  How can that be, where did the time go?  I'm still working on my refining goals for the year!  I tried to keep them simple this year so I don't get overwhelmed, yet bold enough to push me pass my limits. 

As I thought about what was the most I wanted to accomplish this year and what word (or words) would be best to encourage and inspire me to keep me focused in reaching my goals, the bible verse Joshua 1:9 kept coming to mind.  This has always been one of my favorite verses, "...Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." 

I feel that the scripture is perfect to push me to be bold and take chances, understanding that no matter the outcome I am not alone and that God is with me.   

So for my word(s) for 2017 I'm going with Be Strong, Be Brave, Be Fearless!  Way back in October these were the words my son put on bookmarks for his friends.  I think they are perfect for me for 2017. 

Next week I will be stepping out of my comfort zone and participating in an local Art Crawl.  I'm super nervous but with the support of my family and friend and trusting in the almighty, I know I can do it and it will be a success. 

Here I leave you with some images from my art journal and canvases I've been working on.  I hope you enjoy...





Thank you for visiting my blog and please stay tuned as I will be share images next week of the Art Crawl. 

Blessings,
Carmen

"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” With all the changes that are and have been happening, this is an excellent verse to take forward. Love your artwork, it is beautiful! Happy WOYWW for yesterday! Anne #7
