The Battle Between Truth & Feelings

"The worst battle I've ever fought is between what I knew and what I felt."How true is this?  Emotions and feelings can feel so like truth.  They can be so blinding, leading us on a goose chase to get what we think (feel) we need.  They become the thing we live for and strive after.  They can lead you away from good friendships, from the truth you grew up learning, running from good and clear counsel.  It's so dangerous to chase after your feelings, believe them to be truth over everything else- over true wisdom, truth, honesty, true love and friendship, and blind you to follow after the worlds version of truth or what your heart wants.  How scary is that. 
What we know is truth...
We know as believers that God's word is the only source of truth.  It is our anchor, our truth, what we live by.  When the world feeds us lies and these half-truths fueled to feed our sinful desires, we can always turn to God's word to lead us and guide us in our lives.  
But feelin…


I had been really wanting to start a little business, a way to make some money, for a while now.  We had been tossing around ideas, such as fun last names written in the sand and making soap. (The soap would have been more of a family business).  But the sand thing was a lot harder than we expected and we are too busy for making soap and selling it.  So I needed something else, something easier, cheaper, and something I could do on my own.  I really like taking pictures, so something around that seemed good and then my dad thought about cards.  Yes, perfect.  It's easy, cheap and I can do it on my own.  So just in the last month or so I had been trying to figure the whole selling card thing.  We found this sight called Etsy that is perfect to sell things off so I made an account with that and am now just getting started on my first own 'business'. I am pretty excited to see how well it will go!

     Here are a few cards:

 So yeah I just wanted to share that with you all!
 And I would post the link here for Etsy, but I cant' do it at the moment! Sorry!
Sincerely Aly on Etsy!
