I hope all is well and that you’re having a good day; if you’re not, remember that today is barely a dot on the canvas of your life and you can’t see light without the contrast of a shadow.
Like this awesome quote says:

Onto today’s blog post:
As sad as it is, we do not always get what we want in life. God’s plan is ultimately bigger than we’ll ever be able to see. Though some days are clouded in disappointment, it’s important not to let a raincloud eclipse your sunlight.
Today I was quite discouraged to hear that I didn’t receive the thing that I’d hoped for. It wasn’t a matter of life and death, but the thought weighed on my mind for most of the day.
I’m starting to get over it now, but it made me think that we often forget the challenges that have already been overcome and instead focus on the faults and defects we see in ourselves.
Each of us has a purpose in life and maybe one path or opportunity just isn’t the right one. So if you’re feeling disheartened: ‘take heart, Christ has overcome’. John 16:33.
Whatever problem you’re facing, God will carry you through. Like it says in Matthew 11:28, (“Come to me, all of you who are tired and have heavy loads, and I will give you rest.”), you don’t have to to carry your burdens alone.
Although I was initially disappointed, the outcome of the situation is also advantageous in that I will have some ‘me’ time. This hopefully means I’ll sew and DIY more.
Let me know how you’ve overcome any difficulties in your life in the comments and I look forward to chatting with you guys soon.
