I've never shared the tattoo I designed for myself (6 months ago) on this Instagram, so for fun, I am today! Scroll through to see the real life journey my idea took from first sketch, a few different versions that I scribbled on my own arm with a sharpie 🙈, all the way to the tattoo artist's final interpretation (which was great!) and my sore arm ;) Some other Christians have opinions about tattoos that differ from mine, but for me this tattoo is a memorial stone to remember a time in my life (starting 4 years ago until currently) when the Lord has displayed his faithfulness again and again.....namely, motherhood. From the moment my first son came into the world my eyes were lifted up to my savior, calling out for help and reminding me of my need for Him more than ever before. Every time I look at my arm I remember where my help comes from, and I find relief knowing that when I fail, Jesus in my place on the cross covered all the mistakes I'm making and will make. He is the lifter of my head, he is my keeper.....and on even the hardest days, I can dust myself off, cry out for help, and allow His goodness to shape me into the mother of these boys that I'm meant to be. "I lift up my eyes to the mountains. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. He will not let your foot to slip ; he who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep....."
Psalms 121:1-4 .
