Oh What a Beautiful Morn-ning!

We woke to the most beautiful morning with temps in the low 70's and a promise for a less humid, and temps in the 80's all day long!!  Perfect wouldn't you say?  I was up at 4:30 with way too much pain in my lower back and right hip...yep I did too much weeding in the front flowerbed yesterday.  Something I know I shouldn't do, but do I listen to my body? NO...and I suffer the consequences. 
Much like when I take matters in my own hands not waiting to God's guidance!  I pray constantly for more patience, but we all know we are given more things to be patient about don't we? 
My prayers continue to be with those who were shot at the Theater in Colorado..and all the families of those who didn't survive.  We are experiencing so much suffering all over the world by people who have let Satin take over their lives in one way or another..we must pray for those who lose contact with reality!
Praise be to God for HIS guidance,peace and grace!!!

Having a great day!

Things have finally settled down, and I'm truly feeling great!!!  I've gotten so much done the past couple days and it feels really good to get organized.  Isn't that always the way?  Seems if we get off course we feel dissatisfied with ourselves...hummm it's the same when we get off course with our daily walk and talk with God.  He's always listening to us, but I know I don't always take the time to give back.  I think that's why my life gets off wack how about you?  If I don't get into HIS work and pray early in the morning, my day just doesn't feel the same...there's something missing.
 Here are a couple things I've created...oh and there is a group on FB called Art Abandonment Group where many Artists and Artisans all over the country are leaving ATCs and other items around town as a Gift to anyone that finds it...I'm loving participating too. These are some I'm leaving around town. Blessings to all, and have a wonderful 4th of July~~

Thanks be to God we made it thru the last couple days

I think it was Thursday things started to happen..I was having problems with my back (ole' back isn't want it used to be) Dewey took me to Urgent Care where we sat for an hr before being seen....The dr was straight forward in saying with discs that are degenerating the main thing was to determine if there is any neurological problems going on....there wasn't.  he wrote a perscription for Predisone and after taking the first 6 pills the back started to settle down!! sigh!!!
I can't remember if it was Thursday night or Friday that we lost all power to the house do to a serve storm that downed many trees all over the area...reached down to Cities all around us too.  Many are still without power today...and will be for 5 or 6 more days.   We borrowed some fans from our daughter, and a generator was offered by a neighbor (that needed fixing before we could us it).  We couldn't save the frozen foods...another sigh...
Worst of all the poor pugs (can't take high heat or cold) were panting so much their tongues were blue.  Finally we had to take them out in the truck and drive around with the air on.  It helped some, but as soon as we got back in the house they were panting hard again...we did it a couple times...I have to digress here as we didn't get the fans or generator till later in the evening..dah!!
Any whoooo we got into bed all stinky and hot hoping to get some sleep as we are totally exhausted.   Around 1 am in the morning we heard the air come on...Yeppie another blessings!!!  I have to ya (most of you already know) that was 2 very hard days!!
Now for the more positive news...I was able to created some new paintings during those 2 days too!  Here are some photos of some...Blessings to all and am praying that if you've been through rough times do to weather or anything else that you are doing better now...(((hugs)))

A little about me!

Am married to a great guy and we've raised 5 of his and my children...they have blessed us with 14 grandchildren.  My passion is creating all forms of art, and handmade jewelry.  On the side I still make some bouquets for weddings and enjoy playing with our 3 pugs.  Living in the mountains gives us such a sense of freedom as we are on 5 acres filled with tall old trees surrounding our little home...we have all kinds of wildlife visiting us daily!!!
