Speaking of journey~I have a bit of news. For those of you that know me well, you know that I am the Director of Education at our local museum, a job that I love and have been doing full time now for 4 years. Prior to be a full time employee I was an art teacher there for a long time. I have been thinking and praying about the stress the job puts me under that keeps me from being the best mom I can be and so after months of thought and prayer, I have decided to become part time at the museum. The director and the staff have been totally supportive of me, what a blessings. I will do this for June, July and August then the director will decide where to go from there with my position. I might stay part time, I might just coordinate one program or I might become a full time stay at home mom, all of which I am ok with. God has given me peace about the whole situation and I look forward to becoming more present as a mother.
I have always said that "change is good", well I am about to see first hand how much I believe that little saying. Another change will be the look of this blog. i will still share paper crafting with you but as you may have already noticed, I am using it also for my art and my journey. I hope you will travel this road with me, it's much more fun with friends and support.
Having said all of that...here is my journaling entry for week 3 of the Your Living Canvas Workshop hosted by Christy Tomlinson.
One of my goals is to save my money. I will be making half the salary that I was making before so I need to be frugal and work on saving up for the things I want and to help build our savings.
I hope you take the time to think through what 3 goals you would like to set for yourself. It's funny how often I have tried to re-prioritize my life to what I think God wants me to do only for Him to step in and say "Nice try, think again, this is not all about you!" My new montra~"Be present, save wisely and eat healthy." I can do it!
