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!!!

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!
Hey, I am just being honest.Iengage to be engaged.I reach out to build a new c…

The Music Lives On

Today I was standing on my tip toes singing at the top of my lungs.  The sound reverberated and echoed throughout the house.  It was thrilling to my soul and physically invigorating.  I was working hard, because these lungs of mine are a bit out of shape.  It took all the wind I had to fill my lungs and belt the sound from deep inside.  The words to an old gospel song filled our home with music and it made me melt inside. I remembered how much I love singing and playing the piano.  It was a bittersweet moment.  And for just a few minutes I reflected on the memories of making music. 
I am a classically trained musician and for years I made my living teaching and performing. I would never have imagined that I would trade music for another occupation, but I did. I sold my beautiful Yamaha piano 7 years ago, and our family gave up our worldly good in exchange for the road less traveled...literally!  We bought an RV and hit the road with nothing more than faith and dreams in our pockets. …

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.
