The Beginning

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.

Thankful Tuesday - Method to Your Madness.....


This is a clip from The FlipSide by Mike Purcell, Northbrook , Illinois USA.  He is a retired Naval officer who God called to share his love through this cute little fish character.  Yes he was created after the Ichthys.  According to history, the ichthys was used by underground Christians to find each other as well as meeting places, and tombs during persecution in the Roman Empire.  So I can't find any more information about Mr. Purcell and his creations but I had saved them each time he posted a new one at the Side Stream which is still linked to http://www.christiancartoons.com/.  I will use them from time to time and am going to re-work them into affirmation cards.  I think we have gotten away from being too personal with all of the technology.  It is hard to share with people who you aren't connected with....  Bring back the ARK....A Random Act of Kindness....

And now the reason I chose this one clip....Method to Your Madness.... I have gone through life wondering WHAT GOD IS THINKING.... a)I am no one...why me...and b)why did that happen....
There in lies my problem...I THINK TOO MUCH....Thoughts do nothing but produce more thoughts.
I am slowly being more active - maybe not physically enough to run a marathon but enough to move for God more.  To stop reading between the lines....I WANT TO BE MORE....
Where does this lead me...to my jewelry that I miss making, to fulfilling a need at church, in community, or for my friends, to a completely new road of a mission abroad (that is anywhere I would be required to go and spend at least a week away from home).
