If you don’t know me by now you will find out real quick that I am in love with tattoos! Although I only have three, I have plans in the making for a huge project! So I will take you on a sneak peek of my most recent and most meaningful one I got done about a week ago.
If you are asking if it hurt…YES, YOU DANGGGG RIGHT! Now that a week has passed I couldn’t be happier about it and the whole tattooing experience by Doc Burns in Deerfield, Fl. He is phenomenal! he has his work cut out for him for this huge piece I am about to get done on my back about my life story, but it’s nothing he can’t handle I’ve seen his great work and most importantly I trust him! Phew!! I mean this stuff is forever so it better be right [i laugh, yet serious]
I decided to get “I walk by faith” with a sparrow. During my walk with life and everything ive had to encounter, one thing I have never done was lose my faith in my walk in understanding why such things have happened to me. So when things get bad my tattoo is reminder to continue to walk strong with my head up, right foot forward. I may not have the answers to everything but in my heart I believe by faith that everything has meaning and everything is for a purpose. The sparrow, which I love-love-love on my foot is a symbol of something I found in these scriptures:
Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten or uncared for in the presence of God. Luke 12:6
Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground without your fathers leave (consent) and notice Matthew 10:29
I remember as a child in school we were always asked if we could be anything what would we be, and I would always say a bird. today I consider myself like a pretty little sparrow under the constant watch of the Lord. You see many people thought that sparrows weren’t of importance because they were just little birds that were overlooked because of insignificance of value; however, God sees the beauty in all of his children and we are all just as important to one another no matter how big or small we are. Many have forgotten me throughout my life, but God says my child you will be a star that will light up this world and that how I see it. He will not let me fall to the ground for when I am falling he comes down and picks me up before I hit the ground. as an adoptee, God has always been my King and I will always be his princess, never forgotten.
