Hey sweet blogger friends. I loved some of your comments about the Shake Rattle and roll earthquake on my last post. Very funny. One thing I find VERY FUNNY...is that some of you in the midwestern states say you're scared of earthquakes and prefer a tornado if you had too. Tornados scare me to pieces....at least the earthquake is over right away. I found that very interesting! Big smile.
Also I have NEVER seen the earth open up during an earthquake....I HAVE seen
the road buckle where the cement shifted. And I have been
in many earthquakes.
I picked up a White picket hutch for 39.00 and have proceeded to decorate it
with found things in my house...I also stitched some things to add to it.
Here is a little Farm Fresh stitchery I did...I made up the pattern as I went. The pie is made out of wool felt...
Joining in on all the fun today here....
for show and tell
and then cross stitched the words.
I have been watching Joyce Meyers in the morning...and
she has talked about being busy...or being fruitful.
How many of us say "Oh I'm so busy" and we are...
but are we accomplishing anything?
I try to be organized...start the day with reading my Bible,
walking...breakfast...go to work...
I'm in the car a great deal....
But what am I accomplishing or being fruitful at?
It really made me think....
It got me to thinking...what I spend my time doing...
and I've decided to quit saying "I'm so busy" and be
more helpful, do more things for others,
say 'I love you' more often....
Plant verbal seeds with my words....that will
grow a lovely harvest....
I think God enjoys us being happy and not stressed. I hate it when
my kids are stressed out, and worried about things...when they
don't have enough.
And when they ask for help....
I ALWAYS think well of course I'll help you.
Doesn't our Heavenly Father feel the same?
Some of my vintage chicken/rooster collection. It's funny...
I love roosters and chickens...and people give me stuff
all the time...or they'll say....I thought you would like this...it
looks like you.
I think that is a gift from God when that happens!
Another stitchery with eggs on it. I love to play with scissors, thread and fabric....it's like a coloring book and you color in the pages how you want....
Below is the picket hutch I picked up at a consignment/thrift store for 39.00....I let out a small YIPPPEEEEE and then of course did a little happy dance all the way to the cash register.
Behind the wreath is our pantry....someday I'll let you take a peak!
Well little chicks, roosters make me happy...and stitching of course! What makes you happy...what do you think about in the car, on the way to work, dropping the kids off. If only I had more time I would__________________. I dream of sewing, stitching, spray painting, quilting, songwriting....all the time! hahahaha....big smile.
