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.

Since the beginning...

Tonight I want to start with saying - I have OVERCOME - Thank you Lord!
I was once the one who constantly asked or repeated to myself "Since I can't do anything right (by my standards), why am I even here?" "Who would miss me?" "Do I even matter?"
Up until a year ago, I would have...several times a week, many times a day. It was UGLY. (You notice that I didn't say I..I said IT...as in LIFE...) Divorce, lost job, no children and then add insult to injury...moved back home with my parents (yes, at the time, it was embarrassing even.)
Today...I still live with my parents, who are elderly and in bad health, I also take care of my niece. I am now doing a daily bible reading that HELPS me more than it may show. I am doing creative things that GLORIFY GOD! Realizing I am not in control...no matter how much I wanna be!

I pray that God grants you peace from your chaos and takes back the control!
Love you all!
