Continue to Bloom Where You Are Planted



It amazes me how quickly time is flying!


Is it just me,


or am I getting to be an old lady.



Don't answer that. ;)



Lately the term "relevant" is in my head...



how to be RELEVANT to this generation that I'm still "kicking" in.


I don't want to become outdated or unusable to these younguns that need our

 "I've lived-long-enough-to-realize" witness.


Not that I'm all that bright or wise...

 
but I've experienced a thing or two in my 45 years of life on this earth.


I've had even more to say since becoming a Christian.



I need to remember to continue growing and blooming~


not refusing to extend beyond the generation comfortable for me 


(up until 3 years ago...ha ha ha ;)  )

I pulled out stamp sets you can't find today ....

(one which comes from a company that I hope resurfaces)...

and combined with a current set...


hence, the nostalgia and deep thoughts...


sorry, I'm rambling...


Here are the challenges...




 
 
All this being rambled....
 
 
I'm so grateful for the creative world.
 
 
It's one venue that I can experiment in, with trends such as 
 
black and white accents (ME LOVES!).
 
 
Thanks for listening to an older lady carry on....  
 
 
cuz "back in my day.......
 
 
*RUN. WHILE. YOU. CAN....*
 
 
hee!!!

  1. Personally I think wisdom at your age is exactly what the younger one need. Godly wisdom is even better. A great card. Thank you so much for taking time to post your very creative art with us this week at Word Art Wednesday in our 201st AG challenge!
