Whew… what a summer

Ok, Wow.  Have you ever just really felt like, dang, God are you paying attention to me! I know, that sounds so bratty, but give me a break, I’m my parents  youngest child. But seriously! Who doesn’t want to see God be obviously active in their life! (careful what you ask for) I had been … Continue reading

Bench warmer

Well all, sorry to leave you hanging… I’ve been sent to the bench for a while. On our annual summer vacation to see our family in Texas, my body revolted.

And they are thrilled.  Don’t get me wrong… I love all the amazing crafty ideas and it’s going to sting a bit when my … Continue reading
