Starting doing beading in @1995 after getting alcohol poisoning while out partying with friends. It is a talent that God gave me to keep me from trying to kill myself (literally through binge drinking and then driving while drunk) From broken to Reborn, from lost to Found, God gave me this talent to make jewelry and I didn't realize how relevant it was to my life until I was listening to the radio praising God and this song came on (of course I forgot the name and such) but it talked about taking the old and making it new again. God did that with me as I do that with my jewelry! I love taking old broken pieces and recreating something new and exciting. If the necklace doesn't have earrings with it, I can make some to go with it. Romans 7:24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of death. vs 25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. It only through Jesus can we be truly changed, He alone has all power to deliver us from the bondage of sin and give us new life.

DO: Thankful Tuesday
I got tired of just sitting around not doing ANYTHING!!! So I am DOING!!! I am getting back into my jewelry! Back into my creative frame of mind! Back into being who I am!!
I am expanding my jewelry to fit who I am! To express who I really am! To share with the world what it means to see oneself through their own eyes! I can't imagine living life like I had been....hiding behind a wall, in the shadows, lurking and only letting one's real identity peek out occasionally....No more....I am moving on with my life and moving forward as the person I truly am! I know that some may not accept me as I am and shun me but I am responsible to myself, and to God for my actions. He has let me fall to walk again, to crawl before I think about running. Dragging myself through the mud and mire that covers the road of Life, I fix my eyes on Him and work toward His Light.
Can you see the chains holding you back? Break free!!! DO!!!
