Niece's Artwork into necklace...Love!

So I'm thinking about making these to sell for the holidays.  Just turned my niece's artwork into this necklace and I love it!  She's getting one for her birthday, her mom is getting one, her Gran-D is getting one and I'm totally making one for myself!

 Created some simple earrings yesterday.   I really love these.  They're not flashy saying "look at me, look at me!", they have an understated beauty about them.

If we could see the beauty in simplicity.  If we could look past all the things vying for our attention.  If we could just be still, be  If we could.....we would learn and see so much more.

Be simple.

you are known, you are loved, you are FREE.

Mighty Warrior

Love the post today from She Reads Truth.  It is exactly what I needed to hear. Knowing that God wants me, not some super, perfect version of me, but that He loves me as who I am, right where I am.

We don't need to believe the lies that we are not enough, or that we are too much.  Because you see, they are just that, lies.  The truth of who we are, our identity is wrapped up in the love of God.  What He says about us, how He sees us.  His eyes are not dim, not hazy.  He sees us clearly, he sees us as he made us...He sees us in our potential.

Reminds me of the story of Gideon when the angel addresses him as "mighty warrior".  Gideon has all kinds of excuses as to why this statement is not true.  But the angel of the Lord never acknowledges these excuses, because that is not how God sees him.  To him, in the eyes of God, Gideon is "might warrior."

We are might warriors.

Speak life to those lies, and they will disappear in the light of truth.

I made these "Life Lockets", I love walking around wearing these truths, wearing something that is a constant reminder for me to speak life, to live in the light.

 thanks for reading...

So it's been about 8 months since I've blogged...ugh I guess some people are not meant to blog...and by some I mean me!
But the reason I'm back is because I'm starting the Soul Detox devotion I read about on Gussy Sews blog.  I think it's fantastic, being connected with women from all over, who are joining together with our hearts focused on a single know our God.

Gives me chills, makes me happy!  Visit She Reads Truth to find out more!

That's all.   Remember you are LOVED, you are ENOUGH, you are LOVED,  you are FREE

Love you beautiful people

30 Days of Thankfulness...well 29

(I missed yesterday)

Why am I doing this?  Cause it's trendy, everyone else is, it's fun, challenging

Really, I just want to remember how blessed I am and thank God for all of it.
God totally blessed me with, a job that I really really enjoy, my family both far and near.

That's all for today

Almost 2 years since my last post...

I just can't seem to get the hang of this whole blogging thing...but I'll give it another go

Lots has happened or not happened over the past 2 years.
I have a new job...still a preschool teacher...but I'm not in Mozambique (sad face)

My heart is though. It's so hard in the waiting... I like to do, I like to go. When I have a plan I want to follow through. But my plan is not always God's plan.

So I be still. So I wait.

There are lessons to be learned in the waiting. Sometimes God speaks in the waiting. But other times He does not speak, He is just near.
Faith is challenged in the waiting...fears come forth sometimes, doubt rears it's ugly head.

But then truth is spoken, faith rises, fear retreats, doubt is gone..

I am thankful for friends around me in this season

Still in the waiting
