The Best Things in Life...

It is Friday!!! It has been a productive week... I stayed home all week! No road running... that is until today! Going with my hubby to Ludington to the county fair! WooHoo! And then to a concert/outreach some friends of ours are doing at "Friday Night Live" in Ludington!

I just had a small melt-down... when those ghosts from your past try to make you feel less than!  I am thankful I have my best friend, aka my hubby, who will listen to me & help me see the truth!  It was a great reminder that I am called to do my assignment... not envy someone else's assignment!  We all have those things we are called to by God... we are all different, so our assignments are all different too! I just need to soak in the place God has me right now! Patience... Preparation... Perseverance... which all is a part of Purpose!

So I will share a card I was inspired to make by a store bought card I got for my birthday:

I am going to spend my day being grateFUL for the best "things" in life that God has placed before me today!

Treat Yourself...

It is a breezy, cloudy day here in northern Michigan! Can't say I mind it... last week was very hot & humid! I like the weather to be mixed up a little... at least for a day or two!

I have so many things going through my head... do I get at some packing... do I do some book work... do I do more cleaning... read a book... or do I just have some stamping fun??? Hmmm... choices, choices! *Ü*

I did do a little crafting yesterday... I made a paper mug from a video I saw of Traci Cornelius. I had the Stampin' Up Modern Medley DSP in my stash & finally used it!!! Yay!

And there is still time to get in on the Designer Series Paper in July Sale... check it out HERE & then contact me with your order!

I also wanted to share the link to "Coffee Cup Corner"... the other blog I write... please take a moment to check it out... I hope you are blessed!

Good Direction!

It is Friday, July 12th... the end of my birthday week! ;)  I did have a very nice birthday on Monday... my hubby treated me to a wonderful steak dinner that he prepared with his own hands & he gave me a zero gravity lawn chair... very comfy!

I am having a hard time to keep moving today... I will let you in on a little secret... my hubby & I put an offer in on a beautiful 121 year old house in Ludington, MI!  Now, the waiting for this starts... will she except... will she counter???  I know it is out of our hands, so I am trying to keep myself calmly laid back & not too hyper... I know that if I get too excited for a prolonged wait... I will be exhausted! So instead I have very little motivation today!  We are just praying for the situation & for the seller's heart... no matter the outcome we only want to show God's love to her... our testimony is way more important than any house deal! Believing God will be glorified whether this becomes our home or not! Prayers would be appreciated too, please!

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths." 
Proverbs 3:5-6
