Its Been Awhile

so much has happened!!  esp. on Jan 4 with my 3D mammogram. God has healed me from the "c" word. my husband and i were so surprised at God's SUDDENLY.  we had prayed for it. many had prayed for it around the country. and then it came SUDDENLY.  i have much to be thankful for esp. my little McK, first grandchild.  i get to enjoy her every day bc my family lives next door. she comes to visit and we get to love on her.  my hubby is over the moon with her and she with him.  i can get up and do laundry, clean the house, wash dishes, get on my hands and knees to pray but also to clean up after my sick doggie. i can clean up mud prints on my carpet. and I AM SO GRATEFUL. the last half year of '15 was trying to say the least BUT GOD, well HE is amazing.

Friends Forgiven

Creative Call Wk 4 Forgiven - my heart created with junk mail flyers that were rolled, then flattened, glued to a backing and cut into a heart shape.
The "Friends" invitation has on the back written "dear dove under the blood - Forgiven, love Jesus". lastly I cut a strip of leftover flyers and wrote on it "forgiven".  beneath on the page are things that cause our heart to become impure and harbor unforgiveness. BUT GOD....

Awakening - My Garden Sanctuary

i have felt a real need esp. in the last month to create my garden sanctuary where i go to meet with God and pray. before i never felt a release to do it bc hubby was mindful of money being used for other needs. BUT NOW - it comes to pass!

overall view Awakening to My Sanctuary
 

my inner part of the sanctuary beginning to take shape
 
i closed in all the front with a wrought iron fence so doggie can be out there with me. then building up the front with top soil, mulch and bricks over 125 so far. it feels good to be creating this with my own hands.
"All who are skilled among you are to come and make everything the Lord has commanded. Exodus 35:10 Ch 3 - Awakening Creative Call
my gate entrance sign reads "Enjoy the little things in life". amen

Bird Watching and My Secret Sister

in my backyard. zoomed in trying to capture all the different species.
the beautiful sound of cooing from the dove. she has such gentle, sweet eyes.

I created this journal page from the mail package goodies - stamps, prayer, masking tape and a card she stamped with scripture. it came at such a great time - when I was very sick last week.  thank you HKC Secret Sis.

Tree of Life

today i took a beading class at the BeadTender called the Tree Of Life. my teacher, diane from Surry, was wonderful. she really explained in detail how to create it. iplanned on using small beads but then when i started experimenting with the chunky green beads i could not put them down.
i plan on making more of these
i played around with the roots and bent them so they don't look like this now.
