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.

Words of Wisdom Wednesday

Love your neighbor as yourself! What - Wait - EVEN that neighbor who doesn't think or look like I THINK they should. YUP! EVERY neighbor - next door, down the street, across town, a different city, town, state, or even country - EVERYONE! But that's TOO hard - I am going to have trouble with it. Of course you will! But that is why there is always a NEW day with NEW beginnings! If you hurt someone; pray about, apologize, and follow God's plan to help fix your relationship.
I am struggling with trying to help someone else mend relationships. I have to remember that THEY are responsible for those relationships with others as well as God. I can only pray and listen to their concerns. But what do you do when they say they have forgiven but they don't want anything to do with those people. Sometimes bridges are burnt beyond repair but we still must seek God's guidance and wisdom.
Praying for you and your relationship that need God's guidance and repair! May you find comfort and wisdom in God's grace!
