The Storm Rages On

Still I will trust you Lord!

Things are getting to be overwhelming. It seems that the devil is trying really hard to keep me from being effective. I do see the hand of God in it all despite the waves.
Time for getting into warrior stance. On my knees.
God when I am too tired, help me to continue to stand.

Is 59:1 Behold, the LORD'S  hand  is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear

The writter of this song has a similar testimony to mine. He came close to taking his own life.

I love this song because it reminds me of what God did for me.

When I  was 13, I came close to committing suicide. I was in a deep depression.
One night I was standing in the bathroom with a razor in my hand. I felt like I was in a trance and couldnt think clearly. Suddenly I snapped out of it. The only thing I can think of is that someone must have been praying for me at that moment. I realized what I was doing and it scared me. I ended up dropping the razor and leaving the bathroom. God since then has lead me to freedom from depression.
One night a couple of years ago I was ready to go to sleep when suddenly this image of my wrists being slashed flashed in my mind. It startled me and I wondered why It came to mind. I was happy and had not thought of that time of my life in a long time. I thought to my self "Devil you never got me to hurt myself that night and you never will." Just as soon as I thought that the image of my cut wrists dissapeared and the image of Jesus' nail scared hands took its place.
It made Isaiah 53 come to life in my mind.


Isa 53:4+5

Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he [was] wounded for our transgressions, [he was] bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace [was] upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Jesus took my place so I would never harm myself.

" I am here today becasue God kept me"
"I am alive today because of His grace"

Its funny how some songs will stand out at certain times in life. This is one I have been singing over and over again lately. I think of this song as one of complete surrender. Nothing but myself and God together in communion of prayer.

New Beginnings

God is the restorer. He fills in the gaps and repairs what isn't right.
I grew up with a family that had it's problems. Verbal abuse and physical. I realize that God has been healing my life. He has given me a church family to give me the support I never had growing up. I learned early in life to trust no one, rely only on yourself. Now I have to relearn how to live and lean on my spiritual family. Through this time of mourning they have been behind me in prayer and I truely feel like they are family. Sunday I got prayer and was surrounded by people praying and I just sobbed and couldn't stop. Where there is an ending there is new beginnings.

My grandmohter passed away today.
My grandmother Mabel was an example of love and sacrifice that taught me to be a better person. She was the one who was my best prayer warrior on my behalf.
 She was actually my step grandmother who married my grandfather after my real grandmother died.  Leaving behind two twin boys when they were only five years old.  She married him out of duty and friendship to my real grandmother who asked that Mabel look out for her children before she died. My grandfather needed someone to look after his boys while he worked. What she got out of the deal, I don't know because my grandfather was a mean man in his younger years, and admitted to me that she had been afraid of him then.
Growing up I dealt with abuse, my grandmother was my safe haven. I used to go sleep over at her house in the summers. I used to cry so hard when it was time to leave. My parents ended up not allowing me to stay there anylonger because I cried so hard. What  they didn't understand was that at my grandmothers I felt love. I was somebody special, and I was safe.
I am truely greatful for this woman in my life. She was truely a light in my life when there seemed to be only darkness. I have lost a dear friend.

True Love Came

This is a condensed version of a message I brought at a convalescent home service.

Every step Jesus took on earth was a step motivated by love. If you look at his miracles most were healing miracles and done out of compassion.
When we think about love we might think about the latest romance movie where perfect boy meets amazing girl, they like each other but have to get past some obstacles before they can be together. What would happen if the boy wasn’t so perfect and the girls was far from amazing? What if on their first date all faults, failures and sins where known about? Out in the open to see right from the start. Would the boy fight so hard to get the girl? Wouldn’t the girl run screaming in the opposite direction?
Jesus came knowing every fault, failure and sin we have. He gave up his heavenly glory and majesty to walk among us to woo us, so to speak. What man would do that?
We have all heard the phrase God is Love. God is love in it’s purest truest form. True Love.
True Love came seeing the deepest darkest corners of our hearts. He came knowing he would be mocked, beaten and killed by the very ones who were the object of that intense love. What man would put themselves in that position to be so horribly rejected?
But Jesus came knowing all the secret places in our hearts that we hide from others and even the places we try to hide from ourselves.
True Love came to be beaten, mocked and killed because True Love can never stop loving. True Love is eternal.
True love was so strong that it even broke the bonds of death and rose again in victory. All so we could be with him and be a part of his love.


Went hiking today. It just felt so good to be outdoors. Had to climb around to get this picture.  I'm glad I didn't fall in.

Needle Felted Chicks

Here is the body- kind of bowling pin shaped
 the tail feather
I added some more roving to make the cheeks puffy and added a beak by making a smaller version of the feet and cutting the triangle shape for the tip.
Eyes are actually little black lint balls from a sweater -they're useful for something :o)
