Uncertainty

"Certainty is the mark of the commonsense life -- gracious uncertainty is the mark of the spiritual life. To be certain of God means that we are uncertain in all our ways, not knowing what tomorrow may bring. This is generally expressed with a sigh of sadness, but it should be an expression of breathless expectation. We are uncertain of the next step, but we are certain of God. Leave everything to Him and it will be gloriously and graciously uncertain how He will come in -- but you can be certain that He will come. Remain faithful to Him."
- Oswald Chambers
My Utmost for His Highest

Thank you for the quote Ashley:)

Summer Design Challenge #4

Summer is coming to a close. It seems like the longest summer I've had in awhile. Billy and I are now down in the Valley. We never thought Phoenix would be a place we would call home -- but here we are. And it's been fun and exciting thus far. We're living close to the ASU campus and sorting out what we want to do for work, but mostly just excited for school to start. This little design was something I was working out with a lot of trouble shooting and multiple revisions. I love the end result, realizing how long it can take to finally get to where you want it. I wanted to keep on my skills that I learned from Lauren last semester, and for this particular project I tried out my handlettering skills, as well as using Illustrator to finish the project. The more I use Illustrator the more I like it and realize the program's capabilities. So fun! Hope you had a great summer as well, full of fun and interesting things. I am looking forward to a new season of life, with so much change and excitement. Cheers!

Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their labor:
If either of them falls down,
one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls
and has no one to help them up.
Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?
Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

-Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (Full Verses)
