Stefanie, over at Abby Maddy Inspired, introduced me to Pintrest and I have been totally swept off my feet! Thanks Stef!
I have been consumed in 'pinning' and organizing my boards. I have so many projects 'pinned' that I could never have enough time to complete even a fraction of them...but just the process of sifting through thousands of such creative and unique ideas from magazines, blogs and websites is pure bliss in my world. I feel creative after spending a couple of hours on Pintrest, even though I did nothing except 're-pin' or 'like' random ideas. It is complete satisfaction!
Pintrest has been a source of inspiration for me and an escape from reality. I was struggling with being in limbo as far a job, if we are moving to Kingsport and going through a healing process. I can honestly say that I feel like I am coming out of my sand pit and starting to feel like my life it starting to be pieced back together. Pintrest did not do that, God has been with me every step of the way. He has allowed me to grieve, question and revive during the past eight months. He has listened and guided me, at times just being still with His arm around me. Pintrest has just been an outlet for me to tap into some of my desires and talents that I have shoved to the wayside over the years. Not understanding what direction God wants me to go or how to use my talents has burdened me for sometime now. The past 3+ years have not gone well for me personally, but as I say that I have to rethink that and remember all the blessings I have received in the midst of all the chaos. Oh how I have been blessed with my family growing and jewels of friends. God did not create chaos and the devil dances when I get swept up in all the drama and fear. My head is becoming clearer and I am longing to be closer to Him.
I have a few others addicted and those friends always 'get me', we are always sharing ideas and dreaming up our next project. Others feel like they should like it more than they do, but I realize it isn't for everyone. One either gets it or they don't. However, I think it is the best invention since the air conditioner!
