What's Your Worth? Journal Page

In the past couple of days, I have been working on this journal page. After seeing Dr. Lapp, the ME/CFS/FM specialist, I've been floating on the encouragement both my husband and I felt. One of the things I had always tried to do is not let this illness define me, but instead to keep my eyes on Christ, and look for new things to be part of my life. One of the worst aspects of this illness is the comments made to you out of either ignorance or no desire to learn any more about what it is you have. It's been very hurtful at times. But my worth is not in how others see me, but in the beautiful robes I wear in the eyes of Christ. As I was playing about with this page, I came across this image of a woman dressed in very lovely clothes and then I found the words I put at the top. It's a journal page, so it's for experimenting, and not for creating a finished work of art. But still, I think it says a lot!

Background is a combination of acrylic paints and liquid water colors and includes a torn vintage music sheet. Paper images, rubber stamping, image tape, oil pastels, Stabilo pencils, and Stickles completes it.

Come see my latest postcards I've received on Postcards Buffet!


  1. What a lovely journal page. I'm delighted to hear you have some encouragement from your Dr. visit and hope it will eventually help you feel better.
    It is hot here in Michigan 89 and 91 tomorrow. I tried to do some weeding in my little herb garden but too warm.
    Hugs to you

  2. Hanging on to Christ is the best way to make it through the day, especially those days when ignorant comments try to make us loosen our grip on Him. I think you are doing a remarkable job of not letting the illness define who you are. Instead you are making great strides in pouring your heart into your passion. I am trying to do the same, but some days it still wants to rule my day. Your journal page is beautiful. I love you!!!
