Our family made our first trip back home since everything last summer. My anxiety level was at very high levels. When I arrived....everything came rushing back to memories of last summer. It was hard to face it. Here...I can move...fast...to keep from feeling the pain of loss...but there...it was in my face and I had to face it.
I failed to live in the Spirit as I had really hoped I would. I wasn't prayed up or Bible fed like I should have been and I know that had everything to do with it. My flesh overcame me with aggravation, irritation, anxiety and stress.
I wanted to be different, but I didn't take the steps necessary to prepare. I am thankful that my family was understanding and My God is forgiving and gives me a new start. I want a new start. I want to heal from these hurts and pray that God will help me do this. I know that God needs me to move on so I can serve Him and my family like I should. Praying for His healing!
I bought this decorator material on mega sale at Hancock's! I bought a yard and paid $3.00 for it! I loved the green polkadots. I used part of a bedsheet to make the lining with pockets. Now I just have to embelish it a bit!
The black and white pillow is the new pillow case for 2 of our pillows in our living room. We are changing things up a bit and going with a black and white theme. I still have to repaint our lamp from red to black but it is shaping up nicely!
We'll I was putting too many side items in my homeschool blog so I thought I would start a new one. Hum...what will this one include:
1. My Sewing Projects: Some of you know that my 2nd Mom passed away August of 2008. This was an intense summer of care taking for her as well as my children. Her cancer came quickly and took her quickly. The sting is still very much here. Anyhow...I inherited her sewing machine and have began to do little projects here and there. Each time I use her sewing machine , I think...she would be so proud. I've always wanted to sew but lacked the confidence to figure it out on my own. So there ya go...
2. My ramblings about life, crafts I insist on making, and just ongoing projects I am tackling because life is too short to wait til tomorrow!
3. Whatever else evolves here...who knows what the Lord will give me to say!
