The Shores of Life

I am not just one tiny piece of sharp rugged glass
that keeps getting rubbed and washed up to shore for no reason.

I am part of a mosaic of so many different glass variations
working together making a beautiful piece of art that glorifies Him.

Even when the waves feel like they are crashing all around me,
washing me against the coast, I am sustained by the surrounding glass body.

Through the shores of life I am filled with gratefulness and
peace because of the support from Father above and others around me.

About katbirdgirl

I am divorced and now married to my best friend and live in West Tennessee. I have 3 beautiful daughters, 2 beautiful bonus daughters, 2 of the cutest grandsons and 2 more coming. I am originally a city girl from Texas but now slowly turning into a country Tennessee girl. I love to cook with my husband, read, play on the computer and enjoy bead weaving when I find the time. This blog will be a mixture of all of my loves: my faith, my children, my husband, cooking, good books, healthy lifestyle and bead weaving. http://www.mydoterra.com/kathyadkisson/
