Happy New Year!

Once again Christmas has come and gone.  I pray you all had a wonderful time with your families and friends.  As we all make New Year resolutions, some are to lose weight, get more exercise, spend more time reading, more time with their parents and families, get their home organized or cleaned out and so forth and so on....mine is to get ME in finer tuned with my Lord.  We go to Church and are very involved and I love my Lord so much but I still want a deeper relationship with HIM.  I feel our world is changing and we need to know HIS Word and know HIM like never before.   I pray this for all of us. 
Proverbs 4:20-22 My son, attend to MY words: incline thine ear unto MY sayings, let them NOT depart from thine eyes: keep them in the midst of thine heart.  For they are LIFE unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. 
Have a wonderful 2014.  Savor every moment.  God has been so good to us! 
I will be posting a free cross stitch chart for you very soon.

God Bless You all!

Hi everyone!
Well, it is me again!  Surprise, surprise.  Didn't hear from me in a long time and now two times in a row!!  Wow....lol!!!
I hope you are through your Christmas shopping...at least doing better than I am.  There was only three weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas so it is coming on quickly.  I always get so excited this time of year and reminisce about times past when I was a little girl.  My Daddy had one of those BIG and I mean BIG 8 ml. motion cameras that if you got very close to it, it was Synge your hair!  lol He loved taking pictures of me getting up in the morning to see my presents for the first time.  He was a Truck Driver for over 40 years and I was always so proud of him.  He worked so hard and was a Godly man.  He got up every morning around 6 and read his Bible and prayed.  Always took us to Church.  But he was also, always so tired at Christmas because he had usually come in from a long trip and then been up all night for Christmas.  Bless His heart.  Mother loved to cook but her specialty was cakes and pies and Chocolate Eclair's.  Yummy.  She loved the Lord so much and prayed for so many.  She taught me so many good values.  Thank you Mother. 
I pray you will take this time to think back on some good times and then share them with your children, grandchildren or friends.  I know they will enjoy the stories of times past. 
Isn't it funny...when you think back...it isn't the presents you remember but the times you had with your families and friends.  Those are the "moments"!!  Those wonderful memories that you carry in your heart. 
Here is another chart for you.  I had plans last year to sell this one but never got around to it...so it is now free to you!  Enjoy!
God Bless You, as always,
Nancy

Merry Christmas!

Wow...it has been too long since I have been on my blog. I am sooo very sorry. Other things have really kept me busy for quite a while.

This has been some year, hasn't it! With our economy and everything else that has gone on, it seems everyone is just hanging on and praying! What better thing to do than pray! That is exactly what we need. It seems our Country has forgotten where our true blessings come from.  Our Lord is faithful when we put our trust in Him.  I pray we all will take time this season to look around and see how truly blessed we are and what we have to be thankful for.  Not in the "things" we own...but in life's true riches...families, love, health, being able to worship our Lord, freedom and sooo much more! 

I pray you all have a wonderful, Merry Christmas and that your homes are full of His love, joy and peace.

Below you will find  a small free chart for you...It would look really nice to do on green aida but please choose whatever fabrics and colors you want...make it your own.


God Bless You all,
Nancy

Blessings Everyone!!

First, I would like to ask any of you if you stitch any of the charts I give away and would like to share a picture of them with me...please send them to my email address as I would love to post them on my blog.

WOW!!! This has been one week around here to remember!  Some of you are probably feeling the same way.  We didn't have any power for over 4 days.  Some people in our area are just now getting it back on.  Trees are down everywhere.  It is truly a disaster in some places.  I praise the Lord we didn't have more problems than just the power.  It really makes you stop and think about what we are really blessed to have and also if there were a nationwide emergency in this country, what could we and would we do.  I know our cell phones didn't work for a while here either.  The Lord says we are not to be fearful and to put our trust in Him.  In times like this our faith is truly tested.  We prayed a lot.  I had never even heard of a "derecho" storm before last week.  The description of a "derecho" storm is: widespread, long-lived, straight-line windstorm that is associated with a fast-moving band of severe thunderstorms.  There wasn't even any rain associated with the storm...just terrible wind which came in a second.  Over 80 MPH here in our area.  OK...enough about that!  We are in air conditioning now...our daughters tree is being cut up in her backyard, taking 3 days to cut that one up!! It is huge.  It blew it over out of the ground!  I said enough right...lol 

I hope you are enjoying your summer.  Going on vacations, spending time with families and just enjoying this wonderful time of year.  I just love the summer.  Green grass, flowers, long days, cooler nights, cookouts, swimming and on and on!  I hope you are doing some stitching in between all your running around.  It is time to get ready for fall believe that or not.  It is just around the corner.  Boy, it is just like my Mama used to say, time flies when you get older, faster and faster!  That is the TRUTH!  It seems you get up in the morning and then you are getting ready for bed again. 

I have another free chart for you.  Enjoy your stitching and just please don't sell my designs or kit them. 

Have a wonderful week and until next time.

Blessings,

Nancy

Hi Friends!!!
What a great day to be stitching!!! I can't even imagine my what my life would have been up to now without this wonderful outlet!! I love seeing all the great blogs now where you ladies are showing your wonderful cross stitch pieces.
As you can tell, my favorite cross stitch is samplers and primitives. I started loving samplers before I even knew there was such a thing as counted cross stitch. I worked several on stamped cross stitch and fell in love.
I would love to hear from you as to what is your favorite type! Do you love florals, animals, alphabets, sayings or samplers like me! If you have a minute...let me know. I love to hear from you girls.
Here is another of my FREE designs for you. Please enjoy. Just don't kit or sell. Thanks!
Blessings to you as always,
Nancy

Hi Friends!
So good to write to you again this afternoon!  I do hope you are having a good spring and looking forward to a wonderful Mothers Day.  Whether you are a Mother or are celebrating the day with your Mother, daughters, sisters or friends....enjoy the day!!!  I want to say, "thank you to all the Mothers out there for taking the most important job -position-career there is on the face of the planet, as far as I am concerned, seriously and I hope, joyfully and thankfully.  You are so blessed that the Lord has given you children in your care to raise. And when there are trying days, and I know there are since I have raised 3 children myself, be grateful for every moment, every second, every night you kiss them on their checks and say prayers with them!  You are a blessed woman.  A Mother is a valuable person and so very loved by our heavenly Father.  In those trying times remember that the Joy of the Lord is your Strength  (Neh. 8:10) and He will always, always be there for you. 
Here is another FREE chart for you...enjoy!  Please don't kit or sell. 
Have a wonderful rest of your week and until next time!
In His Love,
Nancy

Hi Everyone!


What a beautiful day here in Virginia! We have been having such wonderful warm weather. It has been in the 70's. Even with the thunderstorms it has been glorious! I just love this time of year. All the trees are starting to come alive and there are sooo many with blossoms and color! I hope you are enjoying this time of year, wherever you live. The Lord has made such a beautiful place for us.


My good friend, Carole, and she is also my "Sis" from Arizona, a retired school teacher and wonderful Christian ask me to do a chart "Live by Faith, not Fear".....sooo, here it is for you. It is taken from the scripture in Mark 4:40. This is especially for you Carole...I hope you will all enjoy it.


I have a book call: The complete book of Zingers by Croft M. Pentz that has really neat sermon quotes including some for you to ponder on FAITH and FEAR....

Faith can never overdraw its account.
Part-time faith, like a part-time job, will not fully support you.
Faith is a spiritual life in action.
Faith never grows in a disobedient heart.
When you cease to use faith, you lose it.
Feed your faith and your doubt will starve to death.
You don't trust God until you trust Him for the impossible.
The way to take the fear out of living is to put faith in the Lord.
There are "365 Fear nots" in the Bible---one for each day!!!!
Faith and fear cannot live together......

Have a wonderful day and as always be blessed!

Nancy
