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.

Comfort

Finding comfort...is it those fleece pj pants or hoodie sweatshirt? Is it hiding under the handmade quilt of your grandma's? Is it the piping hot yeast rolls or mashed potatoes with EXTRA butter? While these things can make us forget about our problems for an hour or two, maybe even a day but they do nothing to bring the light out of the darkness of our troubles.
Finding comfort from this world isn't EASY or at least in the terms of the world it isn't. 
Comfort is another complex word - it is also both a noun and a verb.
We use comfort to measure our walk through this world. We seek comfort in our every day needs and wants. I need comfort but it seems only on my time table.
We seek to offer comfort to others based solely on their circumstances.
Today I pray that God brings you COMFORT whether it is due to the loss of a loved one, or job. I pray for COMFORT from the elements. I pray for COMFORT from fear. I pray for COMFORT in all areas of your lives that it might shine into the darkness of others.
Love you all!
