LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF BREATHS WE TAKE, BUT BY THE MOMENTS THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY.

altered life




I was up late last night making these sweet Altered tags, still working on the bottom ones. What IS altered ? Is that supposed to mean Funky ? I see it this way. We are all born perfect ( Well, we do have a Sin nature, that we are born with ) But in regards to being and unmolded lump of clay. Everything is sweet and good, and most of us felt loved. Then, we fall and skin a knee, touch a stove and get burned , get our hearts broken, etc. , etc. , etc. Yet, we also see our first rainbow, experience our first kiss, give birth, and all of these things Alter each of us. We can duplicate our artwork, yet each of us are unique and special. A button here, a screw loose there. You get the picture. I hope as you read this, you step back for a moment and Thank God for each Rainbow, kiss, and Broken heart that has formed that special, one of a kind, YOU !!

Oh they are so pretty Rhea! I love the beautiful blues, the tulle and the sweet little girls with the blue flowers in their hair on the bottom ones. so sweet! Thank you for reminding me to stop and think about the blessings I have been given. I have never thought of altered like that but it is so true.
