Happy Tues, guys!! Show & Tell has been a lively little place lately, so I thought it was time to introduce a new print! Thanks so much for your word of mouth work and links all around and supporting my little venture! It's been going so well and I'm loving that I get to play elf with my packages and post office piles. You guys are the best!
This print came about one day as I was thinking about a line from an old hymn.. "whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say it is well- it is well with my soul." It is well. Such a calm trio of words.
I hope this print will remind someone to think about their circumstance and find that it's swell.
Some days I really do need to be taught to say "it is well." Like, yesterday. Yesterday I was not content with my lot. I wanted more of my husband's company, less commitments, more sleep, less runny nose, and way more time to get things done. I wanted more contacts because I'm tired of my glasses. I wanted clean hair. I was being silly and selfish. The tiniest burdens or changes from my normal happy I get so ruffled! The last thing I was ready to do was say everything's swell- unless I was being sarcastic. Thankfully I settled down after praying and thinking over my laughable "problems." I looked around and realized, oh, everything actually is swell. Because I have a ton to be grateful for. Because the Lord is in control and never asks too much of me. Because He is my helper and Savior.
Thank you, Lord, for giving me that kind of a day. Help me to bear them, enjoy them, use them.
So the lesson I'm learning like all the time: whatever my lot, it is well with my soul.
What lesson have you been learning lately?
