Can I Get an Amen?

in Artwork,Sanctuary at Home

I spotted this on Pinterest a few weeks ago and tracked down the original source for the artwork. You can download the free printable version over at Sweet Blessings. I’m thinking that I need to wallpaper my kitchen with it.

My weak little heart must be constantly reminded that I don’t need to compare myself to other people. It sucks the joy right out of living.

A to the men! You’ve touched on a subject I’ve been thinking about and been meaning to write about for awhile. Finding our bliss, serenity and peace comes from eliminating comparison from our lives. Thank you for the reminder!

Yes! Amen! I feel like there are fifty too many people in my life that are always trying to compete in life and it really gets under my skin. I am tired of feeling like I am not good enough. I am most definitely going to add this saying to one of my chalkboards today!

So true! And for some reason, women get caught in the comparison trap and steal our own joy. So sad!

So very true!! I used to suffer greatly from it – would visit a friend, then feel blue when I walked into my own shabby abode. ridiculous, as our home was always clean and well-cared for. I had to teach myself to recognize my blessings and add contentment to my thinking. Love this sign! (:

I’ve been trying to be content with my simple life, living within a community that has so much more, and this is a great reminder that what I have is JOY! And that is so much better.

Yes, ma’am, you can. AMEN!

I think maybe I need wallpaper of this, too. That comparison thief is a sneak thief–a cat burglar. Sneaks in without my realizing it and poof! Joy is gone. Bad news.

Thanks for the reminder!

Amen! Yes, if we always compare ourselves to others, we not only lose joy but we will lose our sense of self. :)
