Birds, Bible verses and tattoos

I've always told myself as a teen and young twenty-something that if I still wanted a tattoo when I was 30, I'd let myself get one. I'll be 30 in seventeen days. :) And I still want one! I think I'm mature enough now to decide on something I won't regret later in life. And I know just what I want. Birds in flight.

For me these birds will symbolize trusting in God. I'm always needing reminders not to worry about life and just trust in God. My sweet husband even wrote out a bible verse that hangs on the front of our fridge. But I want a more permanent reminder :) Here is the verse that I will remember every time I see my birds:

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?"

Here are some images I found from the internets! :) I'm getting my birds on my wrist (similar to the one with the camera) so I can see it and be reminded of God's love. <3

Hi Sara!

I was looking a bird in fllight tattoos when I came across your blog. I really liked it and the verse you used! I m very close to getting one of my own, for the very same reason!

Did you eventually get your tattoo?

Love Sarah

Whoops! I haven't checked my blog in a while! I did get mine :) I love it so much! I got three birds on the outside of my wrist/forearm area. And it's a perfect reminder to not worry! There's also a Bob Marley song called Three Little Birds about not worrying..haha! So perfect.

The bible verse is Matthew 6:25-27 :)
