Nothing Surprises God

Nothing which touches my life is a surprise to God!  God does not get blindsided.

God never becomes overwhelmed!  Yet he empathizes with those who do. He doesn't judge or add pressure- He is simply God - always available.

God never becomes depressed, yet he holds the hand of the soul who clings to hope like grains of sand slipping through their fingers.

God never becomes psychotic or hears voices, yet He's waiting as the creator spirit hovers over those troubled souls.   The compassionate Savior receives the returning one from the gray fog of a mental trance. 

God never becomes anxious, yet He is there pacing back and forth as sweaty hands wring themselves together.....silently pleading for an end to this frenetic feeling.

God never is dyslexic, yet He understands the embarrassment which accompanies confusing moments and dis-organization.

God never becomes Suicidal, yet He sheds unmeasured hot tears for those who grapple with P.T.S.D.

God never becomes calloused or indifferent towards persons diagnosed with mental illnesses.  God will never stigmatize,  judge or discriminate against any of the people who struggle with these conditions.

God never fails, and He never breaks His promises.  He will never take advantage of you.  God is always loyal and never disenfranchises anyone.  God is only capable of loving, protecting and caring for us.

Most Importantly of All:


God "ALWAYS" has time to listen and He will never leave you or forsake you!!!

Re-purposing Vintage Hifi cabinets

These are three vintage stereo cabinet makeovers that my husband and I have repurposed.  They make great storage units, not to mention they are colorful and beautiful.  The coral one is my absolute favorite.  The addition of the waverly fabric is a perfect finishing touch.  

Below left: this cabinet had a complete front face which we removed and then added the three spindles back into the middle for support.  I have since moved this to my studio for stowing away my jewelry cases after each show.  The smaller turquoise cabinet houses files and extra printer paper.



Business and Burdens

Today is one of those days when life has come crashing in all around me.I feel myself sinking beneath the load of frustration, stress and disappointment. I can't win at life from the popularity contest standpoint.For me, I have never been able to break that barrier and it has not really bothered me.Every once in a while, though, I feel the desire to soar and to be the one people talk good about.I'd like to have the world see me for who I am and even more I'd love for every person I know to wear a piece of our jewelry. I'd like the words I write and the pictures I post to get tons of likes...seriously, why else do it, right?!I often don't get the response that I seek and some times it gets the best of me and sends me into a bit of a tizzy.And...if you are honest, you might feel the same way too.Here we are just trying to stand out and make our place in the world.It can be so frustrating!

The Unwelcomed Visitor

He came without an invitation.He had been lurking in the shadows for days.I'd get a glimpse of his face now and then, and wonder why he was hanging around.Often he would retreated to the shadows, I'd breathe a momentary sigh of relief, still wondering when he would make his presence fully known. Today, he finally came and entered without hesitation or warning.I had tried to bolt the door shut, but he managed to push past me.His dreary presence was uncomfortable, his disposition gloomy.He sidled next to me and whispered his intent.My soul shuddered!Not again, "I whispered!"It made no difference.He was here and I had to abide his stay no matter how long the visit. It wasn't a choice I made that beckoned him to come.I had not invited him, nor was I desirous of his visitation.He just came like he always does.He sneaks up on us, often finally making an entrance when least expected.I pondered why and contemplated his persistence.He is relentless.How long would he stay th…
