{Learning to be Content}

It has been a little over 2 years since I posted anything on this blog. I suppose blogging isn't nearly as popular as it used to be, but after looking back through some of my older posts, I miss having a little creative outlet! Plus it kept me motivated to do more crafts and projects! 
I couldn't resist sharing this recent project because I, for one, am LOVING it! 

{ I realized my love for painting a few weeks ago! }

I put scrapbook paper down as the base and then painted the quote on top. After the paint was dry I sealed it with 2 generous coats of Mod Podge and an Acrylic sealer on top of that to make sure this lasts...a long time! 

The quote I just found on google after a little research. I knew I wanted a Jane Austen quote because after all....she is my favorite author. I believe this quote is paraphrased from the book Persuasion, but regardless it is such an awesome & inspiring quote! 

 ~ "I must learn to be content with being happier than I deserve." ~

It took me a moment to actually really comprehend what this quote meant, but after I really thought about it I knew I had to use it for my canvas.

As a sinner, I deserve nothing.....Actually I do deserve something, but thats death. Thankfully, I have a Savior who loves me unconditionally and is eternally merciful to me and therefore blesses me beyond my expectations. I need to take more time to be truly thankful for what I am given!

Truly love this Bethany! It is a sweet reminder to keep our focus on being grateful instead of griping. Bravo B! Nicely done!
