Sweetly Blessed

Back to school (for the kiddos) back to routine for me. I still have some projects to finish. I completed the hat for Steve and his son...sorry I gave them away before I got photos, but the one I am making for my dad will look just the same, and I will put it up.

I tried to make the booties for my nieces baby. I have come to the conclusion that I have lost my bootie mojo. I keep messing up, then ripping back (which takes a lot longer than it sounds like) then I finally finish the bootie. It comes out too big. UUGGHH I should have known to tighten my tension from the last 6 booties I have made. I just have to lay that project down and make the scrapbooking project that I have much more control over.

I have been reading my bible with more heart lately, and been really looking to the Lord for my everything. Now that I am doing it more often, I am realizing that in the past month I haven't been going to Jesus as often as I should have been. Blessings are flowing in the way of my teaching. I teach on Sundays to the 2 and 3 year olds, and on Monday, Thursday, and Friday
to the 1st and 2nd graders. I have been praying before I go into it, and the Holy Spirit has been gracing my toungue with wisdom. I have to be careful to remember though that I am constantly fighting with my sinful fleshy self, and that the closer I get to Jesus, that there is a very real enemy out there who wants nothing of the sort because he hates me. I know that i have not, and probably never will be tempted by Satan himself as he is NOT omni present, that he can only be in one place at one time, and probably has bigger fish to fry...however one third of the angels fell with him, and Satan has set in motion a plan for all of us to fail with thier help.

All that being said I am so thankful that there is a true and living God who IS omni present and who wants the best for me, and can defeat my enemy easy.

  1. Yay! You have your very own spot :) I'm linking you to mine (if it's ok) so I can stay updated! I'm just wondering if I should name the link "Jolene and Kurtiebaby" or "Jolene and Kurt." :) lol... Happy blogging!!! It's so fun to glance back at "archives" of the Lord's faithfulness and provision....
