A Little Perspective and Prayer

We all have trials and tribulations daily in our life.  It is of paramount importance to keep perspective and prayer in my personal life on a daily basis.  I LOVE interior design and what I do.  I feel blessed to be eager to greet each day with a happy and healthy family and a thriving business. Some weeks you are faced with multiple challenges, disappointments and constant problems.  This week was one for me.  I left the work week feeling frustrated. 


 I have had a family member have a heart attack today.  The silliness and unimportant things that weigh on my heart and head come into true perspective when faced with trials such as this.  These quotes and illustrations help with perspective. 


This moves me every time I read it.

Worry is such a vice of mine…I often say this verse in my head. 



I know this is unusual for me to ask and share in such a way but, I ask for a prayer for my brother’s health. 


Thank you for bearing with me and letting me share. This DOES NOT come easily for me.  

Do you find it funny that I even turn to Pinterest for prayer quotes?  

I do.  

I still am a Pinterest addict when times are challenging. The visual stimulation just makes me happy.
