Storms and Taking a Stand

Well, storms blew through last night.   Key word being BLEW.  The wind was reported to be from 60-80 mph.  Our ornamental pear tree in the back yard had one of its larger limbs blown down.  Thankfully it didn’t blow into a window or anything.  

This morning we were busy cutting the limbs and moving them out to be picked up and chipped by the city.  So I didn’t get much sewing done today.  

However, I did get a nap this afternoon. It was very much needed after yesterday and this morning. 🙂   

This evening I went to church.  I’m thankful I am still free to worship with others.  The day may come though, where publicly meeting with fellow believers may be put to a stop.   If that day comes, I will continue worship my Heavenly Father and nothing nor anyone will or can take that away from me.   I don’t have to be with others or in a certain place to worship.     There’s a song by Nate Sallie about standing firm in belief.

Well… I guess that’s it for today.  I trust all is going well for you.   If you need me to pray for you, let me know.  You can go to my profile page and email me.

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.
