Sunday Sketch: Be The Hope this World Hungers For

Sunday Sketch: Be The Hope this World Hungers For

This weekend has been a whirlwind of emotions. First, to have an absolutely horrid toddler attitude fueled morning, to meeting new friends, painting pumpkins, but still managing to not make it to church on time for worship. If you have been keeping up with Sunday sketch posts, you know that most of my inspiration usually comes from the beginning music portion of the message. I chose to remain open in hopes that something would come to me. That is when I just started sketching.

I was thinking about how far I have come personally in just three short months. Then I began thinking about how I made the decision to to merge my business with this blog. This was a not so surprisingly difficult thing for me to do. Leo & Lily Handmade Signs was the business that got me through my husbands tour, got me through postpartum depression and made me feel like I was getting back my life that had willingly taken a backseat during these hard infant/toddler years. However, MilArtMom is my identity. It is who I am supposed to be in this life. It is something that is all mine. I thought about what I wanted my brand to stand for and in a sense what I want to professionally stand for. That is when this quote came to me; not all at once but slowly throughout the hour we were at church. This is my life “why.” This is who I strive to be on a daily basis. This is how I will impact people’s lives for the better. This is me.

Be Bold. Be Brave. Be The Hope This World Hungers For. Be Fearlessly Kind, Encouraging and Supportive. Live With Unflinching Grace.
