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.

Do you need a doctor?

How many times do you go to the doctor when you are "healthy"? For most people that answer may be once a year for their "wellness" check because of their insurance. Nowadays if you can afford insurance, you still may not go even when sick. I find that even though I have a chronic invisible illness and insurance I don't go because of other responsibilities but if I get sick, who takes care of them? I still have to plug away unless it is 20 on the 1 to 10 scale of pain.

Jesus came and ate with the sinners - why? Not because of the uproar it caused with the Pharisees but because the sinners were who HE came to save. He showed them that by meeting them IN THEIR PLACE that HE cared about them and their LIVES. Do we step up to that plate or do we run and hide?

Not long ago there was a story traveling around Facebook about group of Christian women including a Pastor's wife who visited a strip club and ministered to the dancers. Having dinner with the sinners!  
I pray that you invite sinners to join you at your table! Bring them to dine with Jesus!
Much love to you all!
