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.

Christmas in August...

Today was a blah day. Stomach virus going through (yes that was a pun) our households right now. It makes everyone miserable and cranky.
Then I look at the bible reading for today. Yes it from Christ's birth or the Christmas story (however you wish to view it). And I think about how simple these verses are yet they are the beginning of a GREAT LOVE that many have yet to unwrap!
Even though it is simple, it is a complex LOVE. One that escapes space and time. One that so many of us search for and many may never find.
This isn't the love of a spouse, a best friend, an earthly parent, or sibling. This is the love of a Heavenly Father who chose to send HIS son to die for OUR sins. This is a love that can not be reproduced by giving gifts, cards, or chocolates to a special person in our lives. It is only reproduced by giving our lives to God and being an example to others.
I pray that your life shines of God's Love! I pray that no matter what stumbling block is in your way, you find a way up, over, or around it. Using it to further God's Kingdom!
Love you all!
