**This is a religious post - I hope not to offend anyone!**
I grew up in a catholic family. I went to church every Sunday with my parents and went to Sunday School after words and my mom was the teacher. We did alot at our church it was a regular thing. It's all I knew.
I went to catholic school for my entire education 12 years. Grew up with all the religious expectations that are bestowed upon us through Catholicism. It was my life.
But once I grew up and moved out of the house. I didn't "HAVE" to go anymore. It was my choice.
In my 20's it didn't really fit in. I had a son at 21 and he was less then well behaved. So, I never wanted to inconvenience those that wanted to be at church. So I stopped going.
I would always go when my mom made a special request for my family to attend. Mother's Day, Easter and Christmas. I went for her.
Over the years I have always thought about going back but again it doesn't seem to fit in. We have 4 kids and something seems to be going on ALL the time. Excuses I know but its all I got.
Now a days, it's split. My husband will go with me if I ask. My oldest daughter wants to go, my middle daughter has no desire to go and my youngest son is not interested either way, or he will go if he can bring his phone and his earphones and watch videos during mass...that's not happening. So you see - split....
Lately, I have been feeling a pull towards my Faith again. I recently bought a journaling bible and have started to read the bible again. It feels weird. Like I am doing something that doesn't feel natural. I just think it is something I have to ease back into.
I am a paper crafter as I am sure you are aware of (if you read this here ol'blog of mine)
I recently bought this awesome paper kit by @IllustratedFaith and it is amazing. The graphics and the designs are so cheerful and colorful and the images are all faith based and it rang something inside me and got me excited -
i created these 2 Bible bookmarks using the papers and embellishments
See aren't they super cute?
wouldn't be bad to look at while reading in your bible right?
I am going to be listing these in the shop tonight.
Here's to my Faith and finding my way back..
Thanks for stopping by.
