Neglect and Return

This morning I pulled back the curtain in my craft room and saw how pitiful and weak my philodendron looked.


So I watered it, removed the dead leaves, and propped it back up on the big needle used as  a stake.  Several hours later I checked on it and it’s back in good shape.


It made me think of how I get when I neglect my walk with the Lord – when I let things of this world lead me astray or pull me down.   Like my plant, I start dragging my feet, so to speak, stumbling along my way and falling down.  And thought I may have loosened my hold on His hand but He never lets go of mine.   He shows me where I need to be and in His way He moves me back to the right path.

“For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass.  The grass withers and the flower thereof falls away: but the Word of the Lord endures forever.  This is the word, which by the gospel is preached to you.” ~ 1 Peter 1:24-25

When I return my focus back on Jesus Christ and His word, then I’m uplifted, walking upright, without stumbling or falling down.

“I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.” ~ John 15:5

“Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk with Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude.”  ~ Colossians 2:6-7

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.
