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.

I don't know about the rest of the planet but Arkansas kids and teachers start back to classes tomorrow. This only partial affects me as my nephew starts the 11th grade and my Sister In Law starts back as counselor with Arkansas School of the Blind. Even though I don't have children, I have many friends who are parents. I remember as a kid the first day being stressful...especially as I got up in grades where you had to move from class room to class room for your different subjects and had SEVEN different teachers you had to learn about as well as the classmates for those classes.
These verses are excellent for those embarking on new adventures starting tomorrow.
The new students in kindergarten and pre-school, the new students at new schools, the teachers meeting all their students, the college freshmen embarking on their own, the college and high school seniors who are getting ready for their next chapter in life...so many NEW adventures!
I pray that all are strong and courageous and not afraid!
Love you all!
