Slowing down…

As I wait for lunch to get done, I thought I’d write to you.

Have you ever had an opportunity to slow down, when you really hadn’t intended to?

That’s what happened to me yesterday afternoon, on my way home.  I got in line with four huge farm vehicles.  I had three in front of me and one behind me.

As we clipped down the highway at 20-25 mph, I sang with the radio, adjusted the jingles on my mirror charm, and then took this picture.

Didn’t I say they were huge?  Look, it took up the whole road!  🙂

Anyway, I took it as an opportunity to chill out and relax a little before I got home.  I like to think it was a small gift from the Lord.  Even though I was in my car, I had those two miles at low speed to praise the Lord and enjoy the ride.

I’m thankful for the those small gifts, we are provided everyday.
Well, my lunch is done and I need to sign off.
Until next time…
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.
