sharing from my heart to yours
"Prayer is an upward leap of the heart,
an untroubled glance toward heaven,
a cry of gratitude and love which I utter
from the depths of sorrow as well as
from the heights of joy.
It has supernatural grandeur that expands
the soul and unites it with God"
-Therese of Lisieux
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18:
Pray without ceasing.
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God
in Christ Jesus concerning you.
So it's been what, over a week since I last posted! Shame on me! And I can't even use the 'busy' excuse...because I haven't really been busy! Pretty much just been sitting around fighting colds (mine and Sky's). I still need to do my Pink Recipe for this week. Why do I always seem to put these projects off so long!?
I'm also needing ideas. Awhile back, my little boy knocked over this mirror. It hit him in the head so I quickly reached down to grab him, stepping on the back of the mirror. Resulting in...
So because of my 'need to create with everything I own', I can't just throw it away! I'm trying to figure out what I can make with broken mirror pieces! :) Any ideas?! Hopefully I'll have some wicked cool project to show you with it sometime, but right now, I can't think of anything!
Whisper of Joy:
Half the joy of life is in little
things taken on the run. Let us
run if we must - even the sands
do that - but let us keep our
hearts young and our eyes open
that nothing worth our while shall
escape us. And everything is worth
its while if we only grasp it and its

It's the creative bug.
It's disappeared, vanished, gone!
TOO much bug spray.
You understand... those of you who love to create. Sometimes it's there... like a plague. In full force. Project after project fills your mind, you itch to get to your craft room and start creating. Then life gets busy. You push the thoughts aside, get distracted, and stop creating (or at least for a time). Then you come back. And the bug has flown. This PINK project for the week that I'm supposed to be creating.... stumped. Oh there are ideas flitting around here and there. Just glimpses. Lame. Boring. Ho Hum. I had to laugh because I don't know if any of you ever have listened to AIO? Well anyhow, I still do sometimes while I'm messing around on the computer or sewing up a storm. The episode today... 'Pink is not my Color'. Had to laugh! SO I'm hoping this doesn't continue to be a problem... and pink becomes my color soon!
I'm playing with some ideas with this photo... or any of our other engagement photos. Since I'm wearing pink... I'm thinking I can maybe... somehow... hmm... we'll see. Might do something different altogether. Check back later.
Whisper of Joy for today:
[God] knows everything about us.
And He cares about everything.
Moreover, He can manage every
situation. And He loves us!
Surely this is enough to open the
wellsprings of joy... And joy is
always a source of strength.
