scattering seeds........

once in awhile ...........  we are just totally taken by surprise ...... blown away & in the midst of a  "scattering" that we didn't expect!   the last time  i was here to share with you .... i had just listed my necklaces on Facebook ... then ....... God took over ................. isn't it just the most amazing thing when we least expect it ....... in the middle of an ordinary day ........ He blesses us more than could ever be imagined !   ............

the very reason i have been missing ......... i have been scattering seeds ......... 
 
.............................. i am blessed !

a seed .....

almost 40 years ago i started my shop with nothing but "faith" & $100 ..... that has certainly been a long time ...... i must say ....... i don't make a lot of money ........ back then what i made bought Christmas ........ groceries ....... more supplies ........ it has NEVER been about the money ....... but ..... it has been about sharing faith ..... spreading the word ....... listening to a broken heart ....... hugging a new friend ........ making memories with a kindred soul ...........   &. ......... God has sustained me ...... & .......... allowed me to share a tiny little seed! 
.................... i am blessed!

when she finds YOU....!

i have prayed for a kitty to find me .... cat food had been waiting in the garage for a couple of years ...... there have been many offers ........ but i knew it had to be one that found ME!   Mr prairie blue had said no more cats or dogs .....  my heart had been broken but i waited for God's timing ...... she found me late Fall ...... & i waited to name her for a little over a week ....."Nettie Blue" has settled in ...... i have gone at the whole transformation slowly ..... outdoor kitty...... garage kitty when it turned off cold ....... & occasionally a house kitty ......... hoping all goes well ..... no objections yet ....... 

........................ i am blessed !

the quiet days......

the twinkle is gone ... giggles & laughter has ceased .... tiny fingerprints on the storm door ...... reminders of what was a glorious day!  .................  now is the time to welcome the quiet days ......  the days where we make promises to ourselves ... to renew our spirits & try to be better ...........  
........................  i am blessed!
