Ok, does anyone else have difficulty in saying this about themselves?? 🙋♀️ It seems like pride maybe, or we can think of so many unlovely things about us that seem to disqualify us from being called lovely. And yet, this woman from the Song of Songs says about herself “I am dark, but lovely.” She recognised the thing about herself that maybe others may not like, maybe that she felt self-conscious about, but nevertheless she goes on to affirm her loveliness. What a model of humble confidence and acceptance of the loveliness of God’s creation demonstrated in her. I have a way to go before I’m there, but I want to keep moving toward this place... will you join me on the journey? .
I have wanted this beautiful stamp set from @concordand9th for AGES and finally added it to my collection at a craft fair I went to recently - it is so much fun to colour! I played around with watercolour on this page, seeing what the paints and water would do when different colours were added to others - love how it turned out! I wanted to practice painting words so I stamped the ‘lovely’ and ‘am’ with pale ink then watercoloured over the top -great way to practice! .
