Call me crazy!

Well, go ahead...

Call me crazy!

I did it. I finally did what I've always wanted to do. What might you ask would that be??? Well,
I was with some precious dear friends over the weekend and we decided it was time to do it!

I got a tattoo!

OH YES I DID!!!

And, for the record....there was only clear minded thinking involved. This wasn't a 2am run to the tattoo joint and a decision that I regretted the next morning.

Nope. I love this tattoo more and more each day.

Now, before you go and make judgements about this decision and all.....just know that this very cool tattoo is a symbol of my love for someone else. Yes, you read that right. Every time I see this tattoo I'm reminded of a deep, real love. Then I'm reminded of my love for someone else....my husband, Chip.

It's not backwards or mixed up.

This tattoo is right under my wedding ring. I think you'll understand my priorities once you take a peak at the picture below.

I'm beyond thrilled.


Have a great day!! Praying that Christ is first in all that you do doing your day!

Hugs and blessings~

I absolutely do NOT believe it! I just told my man that I was thinking of tattooing a cross or our initials with a cross in the middle - UNDER MY WEDDING RING!! Girl!

I knew there was a reason I liked you. :o)

Fran, we are so going to have a little chat when we are in Memphis. I have been wanting one for so long and just can't decide what. I had a dream recently that I got a FREEDOM tatto on the back of my arm(tricep) the funny thing was- I didn't really like it but I knew the Lord had given it to me.
He interpreted for me and spoke to my heart that He was going to bring from Freeedom into my life but it wasn't going to look like what I thought it would. Boy was He full of wisdom! I will give you more details later but let's just say that I am more confident with my man then I have ever been and we are doing GREAT!!!

You are such a REBEL. I can't IMAGINE anyone getting a tattoo. Or 3. I mean, that's not what nice, church-going, conservative moms do, right? You totally broke the mold.

Ahem.

I thought you had hurt your finger and had drawn the arrow to show the owie - shows how observant I am!!

Bravo for being brave and getting a tattoo that has such special meaning.

(I have two tattoos and would hope no one would think any less of me for having them :-)!)

That's awesome Fran! My son has 2 tattoos, one cross to remember his friend that was killed and another cross that says "forgiven".

I have been contemplating getting a red bow/cord because of the story of Rehab and how they had her tie one on the window as a sign of their promise and of course the significance of Jesus and His promised/blood. Still thinking about it :)

Kudos to you girl! I love shaking up the stereo types!!!
