I have a very bad habit. I get completely overwhelmed by life. My Life. I get anxious and irritable and downright horrible. I get consumed by thoughts that I have no control of. I become consumed by what I don't have. Hmm lets just STOP for a moment. I become so controlled by what I have no control over and I forget to just rest in what I do have. I forget to take the joys and the wonderful way that God continues to provide for my family and rejoice in them. Someone told me that God's Plan for us is not the same thing as the so called American Dream. That was one of the most inspirational things that any one has ever said to me. Does God provide just enough each and every month for us to be able to live and pay all of our bills, YES. Does God love me and will bless me for the sacrifices that I make for my family and children, YES. I have to Stop trying to work things out myself, put my Faith and my eyes back upon the Lord , where they belong, and rest in the comforts and blessings that He has given me. I need to live one day at a time and not be consumed by what the future holds. I need to take a step back and give my thoughts to Him and focusing on that will take the power away from the mess, confusion and the unknown.

I just needed to get that off my chest. Re Focus on what really matters and prayer a bit. Ya know I feel like a new person when I don't wallow around in self pity!
Have a blessed day.

After the storm

See the rainbow...

I got to go out and take some photos the other day. These were all taken in Paterson, NJ. The Great Falls. If you live in the area I suggest going over to see the falls. They are spectacular. There was so much water running over that we were wet from the mist.
We have had a lot of flooding in our area lately, but these photographs are after the storm. There is a beauty about the powerful waters. The Blue blue sky that we hadn't seen in days seems almost more beautiful then before.

She works with her hands in delight.....

Proverbs 31:13
She works with her hands in delight.

So I think this is going to be my new life motto...(I don't actually have one but I like this one
a lot.) So today I volunteered to do the woman's craft for VBS at our church. (it isn't until July) I have a bit of time. I can't even begin to share with you how excited I am to do this. You see the woman meet for a Bible Study and then a craft for the entire week of VBS. It has always been a wonderful fellowship and I am much to excited for my own good. You see I immediately came home and thought about what I wanted to teach..(me teaching heehee, lil ol' me, from a family of teachers...) I wanted it to be something fun, easy enough to do while you are talking to other people and yet something that was pretty and unique. So I thought I had seen somewhere about covering wooden beads with fabric.... I sat and went thru about 100 blogs that I read. Couldn't find it any where so I just searched it and found a tutorial from froo*gal...
So I went out and purchased some wooden beads and got to work. Mind you it took me about 2 hours b/c of the traffic to get to a store and back It usually takes about 30 min tops. The traffic was so bad due to the storms and flooding we have had the past few days.... cest la vie.

So I am very happy with the outcome. I have to work on it a bit more. The one that I made, Sara asked if she could have it. I made it a bit short (chocker length) I would make it longer for myself. I am also going to try to find some bigger beads. I think a bracelet would be just darling to match.
Anyway, I think that this will be a wonderful time of craft therapy this summer at VBS. What do you think?

Now glory be to God! By his mighty power at work within us,
he is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever
dare to ask or hope.
Ephesians 3:20
