Where Does the Time Go?

Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God,  and saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.” (Mark 1:14-15)

Such a simple message, and the only way to keep our joy is to know Jesus and to walk with Him daily!

I can hardly believe it has been over four months since I blogged. I have been in my second semester of school to earn a bachelor degree in business AND working full time. My old apartment flooded at the end of July in a torrential storm and I moved to a new apartment, but just across the street in the same complex. Because of the move, my sewing supplies are now a little more organized, and now I can put together some new creations.  My sewing machine is in the shop, but I have the fabulous thrift store find I bought for my daughter-in-law, an old Signature, from M Wards. It sews like a charm, better than the newer Sears Kenmore that is now in the shop. I unintentionally abuse my machine by sewing through heavy fabrics and the tinker shop says the needle shaft is aluminum and it cracked. Well, I was working in the sewing machine department at Sears when I found that gem of a bargain on closeout for  about $60.00. Now the tinker shop says that the repair on my $60.00 Kenmore will cost $170.00. Sheesh. Whatever! They just got themselves a trade-in, that is if I can work out a deal with them. I just haven't had a chance to get back to the shop to check it out. I would love to just find another gem just like this old Signature that I ( I mean my daughter-in-law) is now blessed with.

Speaking of blessings, the picture on the right is four of God's greatest blessings to me; four of my six grandchildren, gathered together last Christmas, 2010. I have two new blessings, a baby grand daughter and a baby grandson, who were born in May and June, respectively.  Yes I will add another picture of them too. They are my newest inspiration, and have given me the motivation to carve out some time to create some more hats and bibs like this:

May God Bless You and Keep You in His Loving Care!
