Wishing you a blessed Easter dear friends ~

The Son of God came to this earth.
He lived a perfect life....
and died for each and every one of us ~
to pay for our sins,
then He rose from the grave
just three days later so show us that
He WAS the Son of God.

And if we will only believe that He did this for us all,
we will live in Heaven with Him for eternity!!!

I had to share this video with you as well....
This hymn is one of my very, very favorites and is so beautifully performed
by Vince Gill and Carrie Underwood:

As the mother of five sons,
I can't imagine the heart-wrenching sacrifice our Lord made
for each and every one of us
and weep even at thought of it.....
Celebrating HIS precious love for us all,

A teeny, tiny wish of mine ~

I wish I didn't think so much about what I NEED to do.
I wish I would just do SOMETHING rather than be
overwhelmed with all that's racing through my mind
that should be done.

There is a fine line between CHORES....
and doing things you really LOVE doing.
Chores are things like cleaning, vacuuming, dusting, dishes, washing clothes,
washing bed linens, cleaning out clutter from closets, etc. an on and on and on.

I come from a long line of "do your chores first, then do what you enjoy" folks.
Well....that seems to create a lot of inner turmoil for me!
Because those "so called" chores are NEVER ENDING!!!

So if I were to always, always yield to the fact that they needed to be done,
I would NEVER get to the good stuff.

And sometimes it paralyzes me.
I have some projects that need attention around our home
that need to be taken care of so guess what???

I freeze.
So I guess I need to address this issue so I can create again.
Do you understand where I coming from?

Happy Good Friday precious friends ~
hugs and love,

Thursday, April 17, 2014's all about perspective ~

Don't you think??
It's all how you look a things...
glass half empty, glass half full?

Lately, I've been guilty of looking
at the half empty side of things but then
I always, always have to stop myself!!!
Let's take a look at the half FULL glass...OK?

I am an eternal optimist and please Lord, let me remain so!
Even with mid-life hormone craziness,
life struggles,
or whatever...
I always, always want to be an optimist!!!
This baby's face says it I've been feeling lately ~

I want you to know too...
you are a such a BIG part of my life ~
my dear Angel Friends.
I love my family with all that I have
but you...
You know why I love collecting crazy stuff,
you love my crazy stuff,
and you love what I make with it.
Thank you so much for that!!

I am so very thankful for my precious babies and grandbabies...
what a precious gift from Heaven above.
Glass = overflowing

I found this great photo of Chase, our fourth son ~ now 23 years old,
good Lord, how did that time fly by so fast???

And look at him at a mere 2 years old...
blessed I am.

And our oldest Brent holding his daughter, Clara as a newborn...

And just look at how Clara's mama is gazing at her ~

I have many more family photos I could share but with five beautiful sons,
I'm afraid my post would be WAAAAY too long ~

We can look at what we don't have...
what we think we deserve...
or what we think we need,
but truly
it's all right here.
Right in front of us.
And our glass is overflowing...

Wishing you a beautiful Thursday my precious friends,
hugs and love,
