New Blog Address: Coloring Life Beautiful

Friends, I’m moving to two new blog addresses!
coloring life beautiful

It’s time for me to step fully into the work God has done in my life over the last two years since starting here at Sunny Side Up.

The funny thing is…I never wanted to blog. My husband told me I should, so I thought I’d give it a try…perhaps hoping to show him it really wasn’t for me!

But it was.

For me.

My healing has come through the writing…the journaling, the praying, the laughing and the crying. Eventually it led me to discover this:

Jesus colors my life beautiful.

Even when, and especially when, life seems anything but beautiful.

Coloring Life Beautiful, is the new place where I’ll play and create with words in an attempt to illustrate for you the beauty of my life with Jesus.

Beauty Minute is where I share daily inspirational beauty moments I’ve collected including stories, photos, videos, Beauty Minuteartwork, poems, and of course–laughter.

Life isn’t always beautiful, but when I’ve opened the book of my heart to my best friend and savior, He’s rewritten my black-inked days in red.

He’s taken my pain, shame, guilt, and sorrow and re-colored them through the redemption of His shed blood for me.

It’s a continually written story, always being re-colored, day by day. But thankfully, His mercies are new every morning, and He stays faithful to the promise of each day’s sunrise.

There’s so much to share about coloring life beautiful…about healing…and about becoming in the overcoming.

Beauty is God’s handwriting. The handwriting of Love in your story and mine.

Join me over at Coloring Life Beautiful and Beauty Minute and let’s read some of it together, shall we?

You’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse.
