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.

Have you seen the movie "HOME"? It is an animation about an alien race called the BOOV who RUN AWAY from everything that scares them or threats them. One of the main characters, OH comments that if success falls below 50%, they run away.
So if you are not guaranteed a 50% success rate, you are going to run away? You would then be like the BOOV and spend most of your life RUNNING AWAY.
As you look at the future, what do you see? Do you see worries and fears that are scattered across EVERY horizon? Or do you see the adventures of hope that you can experience?
I was once like the BOOV - afraid of EVERYTHING - especially success in anything. I didn't want to succeed.
NOW I do - I want to SUCCEED at praising GOD, bringing HIM the glory in all I do. Do I fail? YES...there are days I feel like more of a failure than I admit. I want to hide out and not push the wall out of my comfort zone that I hide behind. What we should be running away from is usually what we are clinging to tightly?
I pray that each of you find someway to succeed in your relationship with God. I know that it isn't a smooth ride and it isn't meant to be. I pray that God opens our ears to HIS words and HIS plans.
Much love to you all!
