From Whence I Come

I come from the dust of the earth,
From the thunder, lightening and rain,
I come from anguish and pain,
From struggles and torment,
I come from burdens carried through the darkness,
Bound by heavy chains,
I come from sunshine,
And cool breezes in the night,
I come from the smell of lavender,
Of freshly cut grass and honeysuckle,
I come from the moon,
And the stars that sparkle,
I come from waves of the ocean,
Washing in on the coast,
I come from the bird’s song,
Serenading the earth,
I come from spirit torn and freedom won,
I come from the smile of a child,
With a sparkle in her eye,
I come from joy in the heart,
And from peace in the soul,
I come from the love of a man,
And from integrity and grace,
I come from faith and hope,
From gentleness and self control,
I come from power in my times of weakness.
I come from the Creator of all.

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
