Today, As i sit and explore the world wide web, I want to change things in my home. Make it mine. I love the vintage shabby style and want to incorporate that into my home. I have gotten some really good inspirations from photos' of others. Now to get to work and enjoy making a change; that will maybe change how I feel inside about my home. I want my home to be a welcoming home for others to come in and feel welcome and not wanting to leave. Lord help me today to make my home welcoming. In Jesus Name A MEN...

My week.

This week has been soooo CRAZYYYY!! First of all, I didn't make my menu for the week and that throws me all out of sorts. It is plum crazy how somthing so simple can make a week stressful. I knew better. I know to take the time and do this.. but anywho...

We, my husband and I and another couple suppose to be riding to the mountains on the Harley next weekend. If it rains I don't want to go. Stevie said we could go anywho, I just don't think so. I don't like getting wet. I really don't even like swimming. so... we will see.

Stevie's birthday is Sunday, I think I'm going to have him a surprise gift for a change... I hope he will anyways..

Lord, help us through the day, help me to get all my work done in Jesus name AMEN.

Resting in His mercy.

I often wonder if I am the only one that feels like I do. Wanting a change, but not knowing what it is. Whether it is with my job or whatever it may be. Mostlly I think on my job situation. I use to stress on that. But now I kind of letting it rest in His hands. He knows whats best for me. Idon't know. And until I hear His voice so clearly without a shadow or doubt and feeling the peace; I'm not moving. So for now I will rest in His mercy.

On another note, I love to take pictures.. It is a passsion of mine. Sometimes I get discouraged. But I do love it. I'm always browsing flea markets and junk shops for props and small hats, etc. for children.

Lord, I lift you up today. And thank you for loving me unconditionally. For allowing me rest in you. Thank you for your mercy upon me. I fail or get my mind on things that I say I'm putting in your hands, but now Lord, I give you my life. do with it as you wish. Help me to stay totally focus on you today and always. In Jesus Name I pray. AMEN

Welcome Madison into the world. She is only 4 hours old here. To precious...
I can't wait to be able to take some pictures of her.

Just yesturday, I was beating myself up about letting my hobbies take control of my life. And yes, God did speak through all the torture I was putting myself through. I read my daily devotion which is on the Proverbs 31 website. Which I feel was speaking directly at me. Thank you God for letting me know to pick myself up and keep on going. Learn from your mistakes and go on.

Kayla D. Wilson

I had a wonderful opurtinity to take senior pictures with a beautiful young lady. Kayla Diane Wilson. She is very photogentic.

Dayton Byrd a precious little one that my daughter keeps sometimes. He is so sweet and play around with him.

What is REALLY important to me??!

Yesturday, I made two more pillowcase dresses. While I was making them my best friend called with bad news; her mom was in the hosptial in CCU waiting to be shipped to St. Vinceint ( a Heart Speciality Hospital). Yes, I took the time to talk with her, but the whole time I was wanting to get off the phone and finish the dress I was currently working on. Then another close friend called, that is pregnut and having a lot of complications and she had to go back to the doctor and she started sharing what was going on. And again I talked to her and listened and still was thinking about the dress I was working on, and trying to shake myself to get my mind on the hurting person on the other end. I finished the dresses, but God got a hold of me. What I needed to be doing is listening and praying RIGHT THEN praying for what was going on with them not what I am doing. I had to realize what was really important to me.

When I get my mind of something, I am full force, can't think of nothing else. And want to put everything I've got into it. Then there is nothing left for anyone else.

Lord, Help ME!!! I need you today. I love you...

I have discovered a new passion a few months ago. PILLOWCASE DRESSES.... I love them. I love making them. I love to put different fabric together and get so excited to see how they turn out. I only wished I new about them when my girls were small. Now I dream of having a little botique for my dresses. I do have an esty shop, some of my dresses are featured there. I am currently trying to make it look more presentable. A work in progress. I would love, love, love, loove to go to craft shows with ALOOOOTTT of my dresses to sell. But for now I will continue to make dresses for local people and hopeful new people from my etsy shop. I do thank the Lord for giving me this talent and passion.
