So many blogs and new ideas....

You guessed it - so little time!  Well if you haven't checked out, I suggest you do.  It's addicting and oh so full of great ideas - both crochet and otherwise.  I could spend hours on end just browsing through some of the pins.  I've come across some really cool new blogs you might want to check out.

I am really enjoying reading their posts and admiring their amazing creative talent!

Last night I was working on the snowman scarf for my Mom's neighbor.  It's taking a little longer because of the detail, but here is a pic of how it looks so far.  Not sure I would more of these on a regular basis as it's time consuming, but I think it's pretty cute.

Now, on a side note -- I am going through an emotional time.  My head and heart are bouncing off the walls.  Everything on the radio reminds me of something that just sets my heart racing and my head spinning.  It's almost too much to bare but I can't turn away for fear of a missed opportunity at something amazing.  I know in a round about way I am heading for heartache.  Talk about a lesson in life.  How do you guys cope with stuff like this??  I know the saying, "God doesn't give you anything you can't handle".  Does God test you?  Does he test your will or your faith?

  1. The scarf is so cute!!!

    Yes, the Lord does test us and if we fail, we can count on His testing us again. I've gone through some difficult things, some of my own making, others someone else's. I was talking to a co-worker who was concerned about having surgery and she was saying she had to turn it over to God. I faced that several years ago, when my youngest brother had cancer at 30 some years of age. I came to the realization that worrying does no good, the Bible says so. So at that moment I let go and I prayed, I asked others to pray and I didn't worry. He's now been in remission for 5 years. I've had several surgeries since then and I don't worry. What it comes down to, I know where I'm headed if something happens to me so why worry? When times get really tough, I ask my friends to pray for me and I pray a lot! When I'm anxious, I pray. When I'm working and I'm exhausted, I pray. I know I sound like a religious freak, but I'm not. I just know that when I pray and talk to the Lord, He helps me. God doesn't give us things we can't handle and He will help us to get through anything that comes our way. If you need to chat my email is, email me.


  2. Happy New Year Red. I am a firm believer in that God doesn't give you more than you can handle.

  3. Thank you both so much! I'm a little better now - mostly because I know worrying won't change anything and I have to at some point just let it go and leave it in God's hands.
