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.

Greek Tragedy Chicken
So this morning I woke up prepared to make Greek Chicken in the crock pot...It turned into a Greek Tragedy Chicken...I didn't have all the right ingredients...I didn't want to roast it in the oven as My Dad had suggested the night before because that meant I had to sit and watch the clock closer than with my crock pot. Who doesn't love setting things for 4 to 6 hours away and being able to finish chores in that time? I love it! So I will let you know how this tragedy turns out...
This is kind of how we are in life. We don't want to WAIT on anything or anyone. We crave instant satisfactions in all areas of our lives. From our jobs/careers to our marriages/relationships to our finances/debts. We want what the world says is "perfect". All the money, the best job, the "perfect" marriage. But aren't these all illusions? We might say we have the "perfect" marriage and in your eyes, your life, it probably is but is it perfect because of the "stuff" or because of the SPIRIT!
I pray that your life becomes a fruit of the Spirit and shines for God! Become new in His way!
"One great effect of prayer is that it enables the soul to command the body. By obedience I make my body submissive to my soul, but prayer puts my soul in command of my body." - O. Chambers
Much love to you all!
