January Journal Day 26 - Serenity

If you are new to my blog,
Welcome. My name is Teresa, aka Tess.
And if you are a returning follower, well of course
you are welcome here too.
I can't believe it is almost the end of the month. As some may know I have been following along with Misty Mawn's January Journaling assignments. I did a journal page a day last January. I don't know how I managed it. I am so far behind this year. I've been busy creating a giveaway and a post for the 2010 One World One Heart event. (As well as busy with life in general.) This is my first year to be hosting a giveaway. It's been so much fun. Anyway, back to the journal. I did work on a few pages this past week. I'm not following along the prompts as at this point I am just playing and I think Misty would be ok with that. Below is my "It's Raining Daydreams" page.
I wish you could feel it as I actually managed to add some texture to the flowers and stems using gesso. The paint is water color. I've added words to this page now and then for over a week. I have no idea if it's done yet or not.
I have really been needing a lot of Serenity these days. I won't bore you with the details. Below is an unfinished page. A start with the wonderful serenity prayer.

I plan to take my time with this page so that I will be reading the prayer over and over again. I need Serenity in my life right now. It is so hard to accept things that are out of our control sometimes. Atleast for me it is. And I need the courage to keep my mouth shut. I guess that would be the wisdom to keep my mouth shut. LOL! :)

I hope you will visit my post below this one and enter my OWOH giveaway. I have a wonderful story to share with you there.

I'm off to ride my magic carpet. If you haven't a ticket you are welcome to share my ride. (Just visit the other commenters, most are playing along too.)

Be Happy, Be Healthy, Be Yourself,

Hi Tess, thank you for dropping by my blog and leaving a comment. I love that prayer you quoted about serenity. That really calms me down to just read it when I am feeling distressed. Lot of big hugs!
