This statement is often misunderstood or misinterpreted, to me it simply means that I will attempt to turn all obstacles into opportunities!

My first BIG quilt!!
I did it! I finally made a big quilt and I actually finished it! It finished up as a 6' x 9'. It isn't perfect but I am so proud of myself. I don't think I could have actually finished it up but it was a SANTA present for my nephew Isaac. If you all have been following my blog for a while then you know that my sister finally having a baby in 2008 is what drove met to sewing. I love making things for my nephew because he truly adores them. This quilt isn't perfect but it was made with lots of love!
Who am I? Isn't that the hardest question to answer.
1st and foremost I am a woman who loves the Lord. I love working for my church. I volunteer for just about every event but more than that I love going to church and worshiping the Lord.
2nd - I am a wife. My wonderful husband and I have been married 21 years. We've been together since we were teenagers and he is not only the love of my life but my best friend.
3rd - I am a Mother to two wonderful children. I really have been very blessed with my children. My son, Trevlyn, is 20 years old. My daughter, Elizabeth, is 19.
4th - I am a sister to 8 brothers and 2 sisters.
I love to read, sew, make anything, and I love to eat therefore I love to cook. I used to love going out to eat and then I realized that I can cook anything a restaurant can only better! Now most of our meals are made and eaten at home.
My blog may be a little scattered and random because as you can see I am involved in many things. You can see me writing about any of the things and people above. Hopefully you'll read something you like and come back often to visit!
Proverbs 31:28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. This my heart's desire!
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. All things are good for those that love God! Remember they are not problems but opportunities!
1 Peter 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light; I remember when he called me out of darkness and into his marvellous light!
Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. My mother taught me this verse as a teenager and it has helped me through many trials!
