Day of Surprises

Today, was a RAINY day!   We needed the rain and we got it today.    I was working in Russellville, a town 40 miles east of where I live, when I heard that tornado sirens were going off in Paris and that the schools had evacuated the students to the safe areas.  That surprised me and I quickly got on line and checked out the radar and began to pray.

I got back in Paris around 2 pm and then it got dark as night outside, because the rainclouds were so heavy and pouring down.   Thankfully, we didn’t have a tornado or lose electricity, but I tell you it was a snappin’ and poppin’ outside.

It seems like rain always bring out the colors, in the trees.  After the rain slowed and it was clearing in the west, there was a orange cast to the sky and the fall foliage just popped!  I tried to take a picture, but my little digital just didn’t do it justice.

I found a nice surprise in my mail box today.  

A few weeks back I was notified that I had been picked for a drawing.   I received my prize today.    5 fat quarters in my favorite color, blue!   Aren’t they pretty?!

Annie sent them to me.  I think she did a great job picking out the fabrics.  The card she sent with them was cute and sweet.

Thank you Annie!!

What’s you favorite knock-knock joke?
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.  I do not give to you as the world gives.  
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. ~ John 14:24 (NIV)
Have a wonderful Wednesday!!
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. Those FQ's look yummy. :o) Glad there weren't any tornadoes.. (my parents and bro and SIL live in Joplin.. I don't like seeing thunder storms on the radar over the midwest anymore!)

    Since my little one was recently obsessed with knock knock jokes, I will tell you this one:
    Knock Knock-Who's there?-
    Duane–Duane who?
    Duane the bathtub I'm du-wow-ning. ;o)
