A Win, Brownies and Prayer

We have a winner!!  
Audre brought home a 3rd place ribbon for her catapult.  
I thought that was pretty awesome as she was competing against several kids from different schools.  🙂
Big 20!
Josh turns 20 tomorrow.  Where did the time go?  
I still remember him little and having to look up to meet my eyes when he had a question, but now, I have to look up to him when we speak. 🙂   Joshua likes brownies, so he will get that for his birthday instead of a cake.   I love the way the smell of baking chocolate fills the house.  
It smells so yummy!
and Squeeze!
Stress balls… they are suppose to help deal with stress.   The yellow tennis ball is what use to sit in my desk drawer at work until about a day ago.   The basketball sits on my desk here at home and is never used.  The tennis ball however has been used often and by almost everyone in the office.  🙂   Once again the tension has been heightened at work.  Everyone received a letter today stating another layoff  is going into effect  5/27/11, with notice of final decision of who will be laid off tomorrow.    
I have been bringing some of my things home a little at a time this past week, because quite frankly I feel my days are numbered.    I’m at peace with it though.  God has given me peace about it.   If I’m laid off, I know He will open another door for me.   I’ve put in 22 years, so a change would be nice…
However, I am concerned about others, that may not have the peace of mind I have.  I feel for everyone who has already been laid off and for those who will be notified tomorrow.   I have asked the prayer warriors at church to pray for them and we did this evening. 
I’m asking all my prayer warrior friends here to lift the people up in prayer.
I know God still sits on the throne and is in control of all that goes on, but not everyone has that assurance and sometimes, even for those who do, it can still be very difficult to face a lay off situation.
 In Closing
The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my Buckler (shield), and the Horn of my salvation, and my High Tower.  Psalm 18:2
God bless and keep you,

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.

  1. I read after we knew who was laid off, I agreed with you about
    God giving you peace. I walked in with you this morning and I was at peace with myself but we very unsettled about what would happen to our friends today. My only hope is that they all do well in there new life. When one door closes another one opens. Love ya girl!!
