First holiday sale

I made my first sale on my blog so I reposted this link for these great newspaper flowers I love to make.  They are accents for scrapbook pages, art projects, gift boxes and many other items.  I appreciate your business and sales!  Have a blessed Thanksgiving and Christmas season!    ~Kelly

Plans change...

1 John 3:16 NIV

This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.
What would Jesus do?  Did he ever think of himself first?  Did he ever say oh I will rescue you from the depths of despair but not before I look for this really cool new shirt.  Did he say I will heal you from your illness but not before I get a good nap in?   No Jesus gave up everything about his life, in the midst of all people he was the true match to unselfishness.   Today I find myself on the brink of selfishness, teetering on wanting to do a good deed and be the bigger person and wanting to wallow in my sorrows.  My decision, give it to Jesus he knows what to do with it better than I do♥

Is he still in control if I am completely out of control?

Scenario #1 Threw money in garbage....luckily hubby found that.

Scenario #2 Threw daughter's christmas gift in the trash....still missing, a small but significant enough $30 gift. 

Scenario #3 This mom feels completely incompetent and out of control, just praying God soon takes the wheel...

Where is your power source?

Power source
"I can do everything with the help of Christ who gives me the strength I need."
Philippians 4:13 NLT
I've been praying a lot lately for God to help guide me in my finances and today I got this God's daily promises email, just letting me know or giving me a reminder so to speak that he is in control.  He's in the drivers seat with the ignition turned on now all I have to do is ask him to drive.

Birthday SNOW!!

My birthday was October 29th.  A normal typical day for a beautiful fall outing.........NOT QUITE.  I had a long birthday day planned and it turned out to be the very snowiest first birthday snow ever since the 1970's has it snowed on Oct 29th so I made a very snowy wet day turn into a funfilled girly day with lots of enjoyment.  First stop my favorite little cafe and to top it all off it was snowing outside the biggest and most beautiful flakes I have ever seen so we enjoyed it by catching snowflakes and eating them.  So childlike and yet so fun....I guess the little kid still does live in our hearts♥
