It is better to trust in the Lord, than to put confidence in man.
My week of fasting and praying was a roller-coaster of ups and downs, but overall, I feel as though it was beneficial. The Lord encouraged my heart, blessed me, and also convicted me of some areas in my life that need work. I got a temporary "new" job and found something I lost ten months ago. But most of all, my heart is thankful that I have such an awesome personal God, who cares about everything no matter how big or small that is happening in my life; who uses all things for good to stretch me, grow me, and draw me closer to Him.
I am still working on getting in the groove of taking a day of rest. After years of using Sundays as a catch up day, it isn't easy to change pace. This week, I prepared as much of my meal as possible on Saturday. I did have to do some cooking on Sunday but I was finished with cooking and dishes by 2 even after not getting home from church til 1. My daughter
and I got out and enjoyed the warmer weather, took the dog for a walk, and played at the local playground. (I played too) And we even took a Sunday drive to see some tornado damage that happened in the area several weeks ago. It was a nice change of pace...
Here's a few things I have been working on lately:
Messy bun hats have been extremely popular lately, so I made one for Christmas for my daughter in love. My granddaughter also wanted one, so I made this style for her.
I also decided to throw in a matching one for her 18" doll and a scarf.
If interested, these are available for $25 a set. Shipping is extra
Or sold separately for $15 each.
Up for review this week I have these two books.
BibleMan is a well know series for kids, encouraging them to hide God's Word in their hearts to fight the enemy. This particular book is a really cool flip over style that has two books in one!
Home to Chapel Springs by Ann Mulligan is a cozy mystery of sorts, based in the small town of Chapel Springs. Volume three in the series and I have really enjoyed it.
