Blessings in disguise

I believe blessings, inspiration and lessons come in many types of ways.

This morning I was blessed by a visit to a sister in faith.  She has recently had surgery and has to wear a neck brace.  
Now when I hear of someone wearing a neck brace I think of how restricting, how daunting that could be.  I can see how it would be easy for a person to get down in spirit in such a situation.
That is not what I saw this morning.   What I saw was someone trusting completely in God to see her through the situation.  She was in good spirit and revealed to us that she is learning a lesson during this healing process she it going through. She is learning to be still and know.   She feels good enough to be out and about but is restricted from doing so.  So this lesson is probably not easy, but she is learning from it.
It was an inspiration to me to see her in such good spirit and her trust in God.
How often do we let little things, get us down?   How often do we forget that God is in control?   I’m afraid more often than not and it was good to see the example my sister in faith showed me this morning.

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.
