I’m Amazed

What is something that you would really like to scrap about but you just can't seem to?  We all have easy things to scrap about...but what things never make it into our albums?  What are the things that are at our deepest core...the things that make us who we are...the stories we don't tell?

One of the things I find the hardest to scrap about but the thing I'd like to scrap about more is my faith.  It is something that makes me who I am and yet it is not something that is easily scrapped.  Maybe it is because it is something that is at my deepest core and I have to really examine myself and write/scrap about me (always difficult) and I don't often have photos that could convey what I feel.

At the same time...for posterity purposes...what am I leaving behind in terms of scrapping that will tell the story of who I am or who I was?

This dilemma has been plaguing me for some time now and it all came together yesterday for me.  One of the challenges this week at Designer Digitals is a lyrics challenge.  These lyrics  are from the song It's Amazing by Toni Congi.

This got me thinking of a chorus we sing in church called Amazed.  Here are the lyrics.

You dance over me while I am unaware
You sing all around but I never hear the sound
Lord I'm amazed by You
Lord I'm amazed by You
Lord I'm amazed by You
And how You love me
You paint the morning sky with miracles in mind
My hope will always stand
For You hold me in Your hand
How deep how wide
How great is Your love for me

Yesterday when I went biking I was riding through the Cherry Creek Trail..which is so beautiful.  When I'm outside in God's beautiful creation it always makes me feel closer to Him.  It makes me so happy that He created me to be an artist because He's the ultimate artist!  But mostly I am amazed at how much He loves me considering how small and insignificant I am compared to the world around me.  How he takes care of the flowers in the field.  And the birds in the air.  And yet He loves and cares for ME!  ;D

So here's the layout I came up with...the first one I've done related to my faith...ever.  I'm quite happy with it!  I hope this inspires you to go out an scrap about whatever it is that is difficult for you to scrap!
