Hi there...

I can't believe summer is coming to a close!  We can here the Katydid's just about all the time at our home! I think our dogs don't like the sound very much.  It brings back memories to me of my childhood.  My grandmother had Weeping Willow trees in her front yard and we lived with her until I was about 6 years old and every day after lunch we would go out on the large front porch and there was that big swing!  She sat on the end of it and I would lay down on the swing with my head in her apron...I can still remember the smell of the fried apples or green beans or whatever she had cooked that day and she would rub my hair until I went to sleep watching those weeping willow trees and listening to the Katydid's way off in the distance and her talking to me, telling me stories about Jesus...about her life...or just about anything that came to her mind that day.  You know, that wasn't a costly thing...it wasn't taking me to the movies or buying me an expensive video game to keep me occupied or taking me to the mall and spending money on me but her time, her words, they meant the world to me. I knew she loved me because she spent time with me.  I loved her talks with me.  And the same with my Mother and my Daddy.  We really start thinking about what is important in life...it isn't what we have..or don't have...it is the moments we share with those we love.  They are the real valuable, priceless jewels we possess.  No one can take them away from us...our love for our family.  Every moment is important and our words can change another persons life, for good or for bad.  

God Bless You All,

John 13:34-35  A  new commandment I give unto you.  That ye love one another: as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.  By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

June 27, 2018

It has been a long time since I have posted on this blog or even designed a chart!  I know if any of you have looked on here from time to time you are probably surprised.  I am not going to give excuses or reasons, just that I hope I can be better at blogging this time.  

If any of you have worked up any of my charts, I would love for you to email me a picture of them.  It makes me happy to see that they are being worked and enjoyed. 

And as usual, I am going to give Praise to our Lord for His goodness.  I know some of you are going through really difficult things.  We too,  have gone through really difficult things, still do!  But our Lord has always, always seen us through.  He is faithful!
Our Lord did not say that we wouldn't as long as we live on this earth but what He did say is that He would be there beside us to carry us through.  I feel that some of you that are reading this are hurting. 
The Lord is MY Shepherd, I shall not want!  Psalm 23...He restores MY soul....He IS with me.....!  Those are just a part of Psalm 23.  Psalm 86: 7 says in the day of my trouble, I will call to you, for you will answer me!!
His word is truth...it is alive!  We can count on His word when there is nothing else to count on!  We can put our faith in it when there is no one else to put our faith in!  He loves us even when we are unlovable.  Sometimes all we can do is call out His name...JESUS!!  JESUS!!  JESUS!!!

I trust we all have our faith in Him. He will sustain us!  He is the way and the truth!  In today's world there are so many things pulling at us to get us away from our Lord Jesus.  Take just a few minutes and read his Word..praise Him ....raise your hands to the heavens and give Jesus praise!  Pray to your heavenly Lord..He hears your every word.  He has never loved you more than He does right today!!! His love is NEVER changing!  

I am going to TRY to design again...I can't promise anything at this point because I don't want to say something and then not do it.  It seems my time slips away. 

Summer is here! I can't believe it!!  My favorite time of year!! I love warm weather!! The beautiful flowers, the smell of cut grass and being outside.  It seems the sky is so much prettier and the clouds where we live in the summertime.  

Anyway, I pray you all have a glorious summer.  Lots of laughter and fun with family and friends.  

God bless you all!

This is the most wonderful time of year! 
There are so many things happening all around us!  As a Christian,  I find myself realizing that of all times my faith has to be strong.  I cannot be weak because I know there will be times that all of our faith will be tested.  I praise the Lord for what He did for us.  He came to this earth to save us...He died on the cross to save us!  We are celebrating our Lord.  God in the flesh!  The one that loves us the most.  The one that all we have to do is call out His name...Jesus and He is right there for us.  We are blessed.   I pray each of you are praying for your families, your friends to pray more...seek the Lord more...get into His Word more....Hear from Him more and put the desires of this world aside.  Pray for the lost and allow the Lord to lead you where you will go. 
He is faithful even when we are not.  He loves the unlovable....He loves us when we have failed...when we have messed up....when we are unworthy...Praise the Lord!  All we have to do is go to Him and say I'm sorry!  Our sins are as far as from the east to the west...and further.  The spans of the skies.....Hallelujah!!
I am thankful that I can write this on my blog...that we have freedom in America right now! 
I just want to give Him Praise on my little blog for all He has done for me.  Thank you Lord for saving me...for getting me through hard times and for all those times I didn't desire it and you were still there!  For forgiving me of all my sins!  I love you Lord!  I pray for all those that read my blog that they will be blessed by You and if they aren't saved, that there hearts will turn to you, Lord!
I pray they will have a wonderful Christmas with their families and friends.  That you will be safe...lots of laughter and remember where all your true blessings came from.
God bless you all!

Free Chart "Fruit of the Spirit"

Hi again...
We had more snow last night!  I heard on TV this morning that a man up north is selling "snow" and shipping it out to people that want snow!  I guess people will buy anything.  Since the Country is mostly covered in snow right now he is probably shipping pretty far!  Wow...what an entrepreneur!  Can't even imagine how you do that!
We are just trying to stay warm and get out of our driveway!  lol  That is a task in itself....My husband was concerned for the birds and he bought a big bag of seed for them.  We sometimes don't think of all the little critters that are all around us. 
Matthew 6:26 says Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

So when my husband wanted to feed the birds, I thought about that verse.  The Lord supplying the food for them and also the Lord leading my husband to help in a time of need the birds were feed. 
How much more should we do for our brothers and sisters when we see a need in their lives. 

1 John 3:18 Little children, let us stop just saying we love people; let us really love them, and show it by our actions.
It is easy to say we love but love is an action word only. 
This snow is a perfect time to share our "love" with someone in need.  There is a lot of people that are stranded without a ride, getting to the store, to the doctor, without food, shoveling a driveway...whatever...there are needs.  Reach out, share your love of our Savior.  You will receive a blessing too!
Here is a FREE chart for you.  "FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT"
I hope you enjoy....Use any colors or fabrics you desire!
Blessings as always,

Hi everyone...

Happy late Valentines Day!!

We have had sooo much snow and I am sure a lot of you have too.  Cabin fever here we come!  They are calling for more this weekend...NO...NO!  Please, enough is enough. Just get rid of some of these germs all around!  I don't know if it does or not but I hope it does. 

Anyway, I pray you all had a fabulous Valentine's Day with your sweetie!  I can't believe it is almost March and Easter time already.  Time flies by just like my Mom said, and the older you get the faster it goes...I sure don't understand that one!  But it is true. 

All I do know is that the Lord has sure been good to me and I have to always give a testimony to His goodness!  Without Him, I don't know what or where I would be.  I once heard a minister say that miracles pass us by everyday and we don't see them.  If we only knew all the good things that have passed us by because we weren't listening to the voice of God it would amaze us but not only that...we would be astonished at the bad things the Lord has protected us from!  He is right there to help us all the time!  Praise His Name forever.

I am including a picture of one of my charts called "Love Never Fails" that Robin Brown stitched and sent me.  It looks fantastic and I wanted to share with you.  Thank you Robin for sending it to me.  I hope you all enjoy my free charts. 

Have a blessed week and talk to you soon!

Merry Christmas....
Hope you have had a great thanksgiving and are getting all your shopping done.
I haven't been on here in quite a while...lots of things going on...as most of you probably can relate too.....life gets in the way sometimes.  Praise the Lord though, He is always there for us to see us through.....from the smallest to our biggest problems. 
Sometimes we have to just stop...and listen to what the Lord is wanting to tell us.  We pray and then we don't take the time to listen to His voice.  He wants to communicate with us more than we ever realize.  Just to take a few minutes out of our busy day and spend with our precious Savior will make our day go so much better.  This is a busy time for all of us...family, friends, cooking, children, grandchildren...church events, office parties, all the things take away from our quiet time.  Just take a few moments.  Relax...talk to the one who created the universe and YOU.  You are so special to Him.  Lets all remember why we are celebrating this time of year.  He was born......then so He could die on the cross for our sins because He loves you and me so very much. Praise the Lord, He is alive again.... Thank you Lord for all you have done for us.  We praise your Holy Name.  We give honor and glory to You today for who you are and what you have done for all of us.  Without you we can do nothing. 
We pray you and your family have a wonderful Christmas.  God Bless You all...have a safe and happy time.  Nancy

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!
