Blessings & Sweet Treats

Diane walked up to me and asked, “How are you doing?”

“Okay”, I replied.

“So, really, how are you?”, Diane asked again.

“Is it that evident?”, I asked.

“Only to me”, Diane said.

I hesitated and Diane quickly said, “You don’t have to tell me if you don’t want to, I’ll just keep praying.”

“Yes, please do keep praying.  There is something… I can’t put a name to it, but it’s there.  If I had a name for it,  I could pray, asking God to remove the demon from me”, I said.

Diane reaffirmed she would continue to pray.  The church service began and she went back to her seat.

Of late I have been in a funk.   Most people don’t know it or see it, but my friend, Diane did.  

It’s good to have a friend, a sister in Christ, a kindred spirit, that knows when I need prayer and prays for me.

I met Diane, a few years ago, when I walked into a little shop where she worked.   We began to talk and before I knew it, we were sharing the Lord with one another.  I have considered her a friend from that point on.  She is always ready with a smile and kind word.  She is also willing to pray and give sisterly advise when I need it.    

Diane is a blessing, God has sent my way.

One of my favorite treats of the summer is cold, sweet watermelon.  
This particular yellow watermelon was a sweet treat to end my day with.

My answer to yesterday’s question:  I took a week off for my birthday.

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.
