All I can think about this morning is "Am I making the right decision?  Should I rethink what I said I wanted?"  I mean, my job is a good job.  And my house?  It's a good (cheap) house.  But now is the season for hiring new teachers to replace the ones who've moved on or retired, and maybe I should apply.  Not necessarily because I'm absolutely 100% ready to move on, but because those jobs come with (MUCH) better pay.  And boy, could we use it.  Am I not applying because I'm afraid?  Or because there's something more for me here?  Questions desperately needing answers...

Trusting God for guidance today.

Celebrate inner beauty.

Loving this one.  Okay, sure, her eyes are a little uneven, the writing is a little wonky, and her mouth took me FOREVER to get right, but inner beauty is the point here anyway, right?  (That's what I'm telling myself so I can move on and not agonize over perfection).  Hope you like her.

Oh, and one more thing.  I'm right proud of that nose!  I'm getting better at NOSES!!  (Insert happy dance here.)  :)  Enjoy!  And celebrate your beautiful self today!

Come to the well, and drink deeply...

In our fast-paced, busy lives, sometimes it seems like there is no time to savor anything...relationships, art, beauty, God.  But what if we made the time?  What if we just decided, "Today, I'm going to make it a stand at the well and drink.  Not just a sip.  I choose to drink until I can't fit any more water anywhere."  My lesson for today.  And tomorrow.  And...well, always
