As of late....

I stumbled on this link up the other day and thought it would be a fun way to post an update.......

As of late it has been hot and stormy. This is the storm my brothers and I drove through to get to prayer meeting this week. Lots of hail, and some of us were dripping wet after running from the car to the building. I say some of us, because as a girl I got an escort with an umbrella:-)

I've been learning to use my new sewing machine (thanks Jessica:-). I made this headband with a lace applique....

....and this one out of a blouse that was too big for me! It can be folded into a narrower band, or worn open like I am here.

I've been doing a lot of crafting. I made a few pairs of these earrings for myself and friends. I've also been knitting a lot lately, but that project is a gift so I better not post pictures - the wrong person might see it!

My new hobby is spray painting. I picked up a few baskets for 49 cents each at the thrift store and painted them white. I love baskets, they're a pretty way of storing things.

Another basket I painted. This one is holding sewing supplies on my desk.

I've been working on my room a lot, and attempted my biggest painting project yet - a dresser. I also painted a wooden chair white, but don't want to share a picture till I get some cushions made for it.

I've been reading this, perhaps you all read the series of letters from it that I posted a week or so ago...

I've been thinking about how thankful I am for my church - it's such a blessing!
Cup of coffee
And of course drinking plenty of coffee to keep me going:-)

I've also been thinking a lot about joy, God's promises the Lord remembering us,  Loneliness, and as always waiting on the Lord. In other news.....well come to think of it, there isn't any. Just keeping busy with the same old things, but thankful to the Lord for providing work, strength to do it, and all my needs. He is good.

I hope everyone has a good day!

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
