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.

Put back the sugar

Hold the milk, put back the sugar
They are powerless to console
We've gathered here to sprinkle ashes
From our late friend's cereal bowl

Think about those lyrics for a moment - Hold the milk, Put back the sugar.  Do you worry what you say or do will OFFEND your neighbor? As a Christian, we are called to be Christ - LIKE not Christ - COATED (see image below from Trumpet Call). We worry about what we do or say offending SINNERS than worrying about where their soul is really going.

I am stepping out in FAITH and putting on my GRACE hat...Just because we are aware of more violence, hate, negativity, but we put a label on it...CALL IT WHAT IT IS - SIN.
If we are just suppose to sugar coat life and spin the positive...then we are not being Christ - LIKE.
I think we need to really read what God's word is saying...not what WE have been told it says. We read verses like today's bible reading and see it for the warm fuzzies of God providing our needs. OUR NEEDS do not include a brand new car when the one we are driving has reached 50000 miles and is still working. They don't include a Coach bag or Chanel earrings (Yes I have a Master's degree in Fashion Design. Clothing is important...it is the BRAND that DOESN'T MATTER when it comes to saving your soul.)
These verses are telling us NOT TO WORRY about EVERYTHING because WE are NOT in control. God's plan was set in motion the day HE divided the Heavens and the Earth. I am not going to re-write HISTORY and upset HIS plan unless I choose not to FOLLOW HIS PLAN!
My prayer today is that you put back the sugar and become the SALT! 
Love you all!
