When God Calls You to Stop.

Earlier this year God called me to stop working on our house.  Our goal is to move.  To do that we need to get this house ready to sell.  Sometimes it is so hard when He calls us to stop doing a priority or a goal. I remember another difficult time when I needed to... Continue Reading →

What’s for Dinner tonight?

How often do you stand there with the refrigerator door open asking this question, "what's for dinner?" I do it often.  It seems this week all the creativity I need to make dinner is gone.  I have food in the refrigerator, freezer, and pantry. But it is me who cannot figure out what to make....

Overindulgence

I'm reading the "Made to Crave" devotional book because I need some encouragement to start eating right again. Recently I have gone way off track and I'm probably gaining pounds again. But I won't step on the scale to verify it (that would be a whole other blog post). I've just been thinking, if I'm... Continue Reading →

Teaching

This week I get to experience the joy and satisfaction of teaching a sewing class for youth.  Our projects will include a bookmark, pillowcase and tote bag.  Two of my students received sewing machines for Christmas so they are very excited to learn more about sewing. It is truly wonderful to teach students who really... Continue Reading →

My Rags

  I feel like a rag doll coming to you. I'm not pretty on the inside or out. Just leftovers. I've given my best pieces to meet my family's needs and even my own so all I have left are rags and remnants. Lord I need something new to work with. Fresh new material.  Something to... Continue Reading →

Broken Plate

A couple of days ago my daughter was doing dishes with me.  When she went to put the last plate in the dishwasher, it slipped out of her little wet hands.  It came crashing down to the floor and split in two.  Oh my, how her spirit was crushed - but mine wasn't.  I allow... Continue Reading →

A Busy Mind

I am praying and my mind has wondered off several times.  I'm thinking about what I need to get done in the next few days.  I have a tax appointment, I have to plan a dessert club talk, and my mom is flying into town for a visit.  I can't even focus and it's You... Continue Reading →
