At the time, I had just begun creating stationery and art prints for Life Lived Beautifully and longed for it to make a difference. (It wasn’t until April that the Lord gave me the dream for the “Give Me Jesus” Journal.) I didn’t want to post another picture that people would scroll past and not pay attention to.
