I'm running to your arms

Monday, November 7, 2011


My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly trust in Jesus’ Name.

On Christ the solid Rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

When darkness seems to hide His face,
I rest on His unchanging grace.
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.

His oath, His covenant, His blood,
Support me in the whelming flood.
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my Hope and Stay.

When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh may I then in Him be found.
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.

Christmas gifts for you

I love to create things out of stuff that I already have. It's the thrifty part of me. I thought up this little denim bulb in my head two days ago

I thought maybe I could make these for family gifts . Or maybe if there is enough interest I can sell them. They are made with recycled denim. I little bit of sewing on the machine. Some hand sticking and a button from my mother-in-laws button stash.

So if you like them and would like two, they sell for $8.00 With shipping.
Give me a shout if your interested. If not, tell me what you think. Cute right?

I am thankful for God's grace and mercy.
I choose to be thankful for what I need to walk though in this life.
I want to be more thankful for my husband and my children.
I need to be more  thankful for this life.

                                                  Colossians 3:15

 15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.

"The Simple Woman's Daybook"

Outside my window...The sun is shining, the snow patches are melting, and the grass is asking if it's spring

I am thinking...Why do I think to much and complicate things

I am thankful...My God and Savior who is not complicated

From the learning rooms... We reading " Turn Homeward, Hannalee"and she is reading "Indian Captive" 

In the kitchen...Just bakes chocolate chip cookies to warm the house up.

I am wearing... Jeans , warm long sleeve shirt and home made crocheted slippers.

I am creating...A lesson plan for our sewing group

I am going...Away next week

I am wondering...If today will be a better school day then it has been the last couple of days

I am reading..."The Gift of Dyslexia"

I am hoping...to get more yard work done 

I am looking forward to...the homemade soup we will have tonight at dinner

I am hearing...the kids chat about silly things

Around the house...are piles of things that need a home

I am pondering...how to simplify my life

One of my favorite things...the smell of a wood stove burning pine wood

A few plans for the rest of the week:to lighten up and not be so worried about the things that i have no control over

Take a look at the other lovely daybooks .

To simplify would indeed be wonderful thing

 This word is something that I need to do during times of clutter in my mind.
Simplify......is not easy for me. I wish it was. I want to do so much in a short amount of time that I complicate my day before it even begins.
 I have dreams and desires that I wish I could make come true. I want to create when I feel like it. I want to have unlimited resource so that nothing will stop me. 

One thing I know is..... God has unlimited resource for me to tap into. I just need to SIMPLY let go and let him lead me.
Okay, I will work on this.

At all time I will praise Him.

This week has been one of those tough weeks for pretty much everything.
Kids are arguing, bickering,complaining ect.

I have even jumped on board with them. I have been yelling, complaining,grumbling and down right irritable.

I don't know about you, but I do not like the way I feel while all of this is going on. I wish I could erase all the hurt and pain that I make and also feel.
When I am in the middle of all the muck, I need to remember to reach out my hands and ask for help.

Help from the one who is always there.
Help when I don't think I need it.
Help and then fall to my knees and give it ALL to him.

So simple, yet not thought of during these challenging times.

A song comes to my mind.
" I'm falling on my knees, offering all of me, Jesus your all this heart is living for"
