Piercing and Blessing

Today… was one of those days where the Lord grabs your heart and doesn’t let go, until you accept what He is telling you.

Every day He touches my life, but there are days that He pierces me in the heart.   It’s always a good thing, sometimes it’s tough to work through, but it is always good.

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.  The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. ~ Galatians 2:20

The above verse helped me this evening.  All day I have been worrying about something I needed to do.   Sharing the Lord with a particular friend of mine.

A friend, who I wasn’t sure would be willing or accepting of the information I had to share.   I knew however, that if I wanted to have peace, I had to do what I was being led to do.   So I contacted that friend this evening.

Thankfully, we are still friends and it is now up to God to do the rest.  🙂

This afternoon, I finished the Christmas apron and oven mitt. 
Here it is.  
I decided to use brown ribbon for the ties and also lined it so that it is reversible. 
Here’s the oven mitt.
AND… I also got a nap in to boot!!
It was a scorcher today.  When I left church this afternoon, my car said the temperature was 103°.  Then this evening around 5:30 or so, one of the ladies at church said that her car gave the temperature of 109°.  It certainly felt like it.  It was very muggy today too.   
Though it was hot and still is… there was a blessing to be found.  
On the way home this evening, we discovered it rained!  There were puddles in the streets.  My son, who had to work this evening, said it rained hard for about 30 minutes.  
Thank you Father!!   We’ve been needing the rain.  We need more, but I’m very thankful for the rain we got this evening.
Here’s wishing you great week ahead!!
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'm glad someone is getting ahead on their Christmas/holiday projects ~ I'm slacking!
    Your apron turned out wonderful, I like that you can reverse it too.
    Glad to hear you still have a friend that understands, that in my book is a true friend.
    You have a great week too!
    Prim Blessings


  2. Natasha, thank you for stopping by. Keep believing, with God all things are possible.

    Have a great week!

    God bless and keep you,


  3. Thank you for your blog. The sermon at my church this weekend was about dieing so that you can live. Our pastor is going to be showing (or challenging) the church next week on how to die so that they can live more for God. I think a lot of people were nervous this weekend.

    Thank you for living for God and showing otheres that it is possible.


  4. That's very nice. I really need to get working on the Christmas crafting myself. Just seems odd to be crocheting scarfs and the like when it's 100 degrees here. LOL
