Scrapping Everyday Miracles Challenge #14

Today brings our March challenge at Scrapping Everyday Miracles and it is a wonderful challenge!  THIS IS ME . . . in one word!!

We want you to do a layout all about who you are, but the title of your layout must be the word that you think describe you the most right now! Just being who you are, are a miracle in itself! Often we look at the things around us, and we see God working in our lives, but sometimes we just need to sit and think "Who am I, what are my talents, my personality, my likes and dislikes." This month it's all about YOU!
SCRAP TWIST: We want to see the person behind the layout, so please use a photo of yourself and journaling to tell us who you are! It would be fun if you scraplift yourself as well.
Here is what I created: 
Materials Used:  American Crafts, Hambly, Fiskar
My journaling reads:  I am rock-solid, steadfast.  I have been given a race to run and I can't afford to become distracted.  I have a calling given to me by my Lord and Savior and I will not waver.  I am the house built on the rocks - and even though trials have come my hope remains in the God of my salvation.  It is hard at times to hold so tightly to a dream - there are moments of weakness and confusion, but God!  When I am weak, He is strong and more than able to keep me on the path set infront of me.

I was looking through my stash of paper trying to find the perfect paper to use when I found this map paper from American Crafts and it fit.  You see, even though I am rock-solid, I have experienced many changes, especially over the past few years.  I don't always like change and it does take me awhile to process at times, but as long as my foundation is steady and built on the rock I am able to fully grasp all the changes that occur on a day to day basis.

I wish that I could say I have some wonderful fun word that describes me, but I have always been the person you can count on.  When I give you my word I will follow through no matter what.  I have had discipline and determination ground into my being due to my training as a violinist which has had tremendous influence on me today.  So I can embrace who I really am or I can try to imitate others, so I choose for myself to embrace the way the Lord has made me.  What about you, who are you?

 Our generous sponsor for this month is Dot & Whimsy!

The wonderful prize Shellye is offering to our winner is a bundle of crepe paper Fringe.

All you have to do is complete the challenge and link it up by March 31st.
