Welcome to my eclectic journey of my life and delights. This year my theme is surrendering my writing pen to the true author, Jesus Christ, while looking forward to the future, reflecting on the past and dancing through my journey.

Ducky Post!

I just believe there are times of weakness which become counterfeited strength.  That is my story and I am sticking with it, as my excuse for my moment of weakness, which resulted in two baby ducks coming to our house. 
My client had two baby ducklings in a box under a warming light when I arrived to work.  Their chirping drew me in with their sound and  "awe" came off my lips.  Benjamin and Joshua would so enjoy watching these little birds grow up, began my mental moment of lost sanity.
My weakness has become a strength.  I LOVE MAKING MEMORIES, and these little ducklings are making memories.  Even my adult children have joined in the fun.  I Instagram or send a picture text of our ducky adventures, and although I usually don't receive text messages back from my adult children, well the ducks invoke a reaction.

Recently our time has been making "Ducky" memories, as my hidden farm girl heart is revealed, or a desire for a simpler life.  My home school heart talks about the stories we have read, Ping and Make Way for Duckling.

Grand Mommy has ducks....temporary that is.

Grandson...all three, came to see the ducks!  Yes, I live in a subdivision, and yes, we will re-enter them back into a natural habitat.

Another adventure has been my decorating business.
My precious friend, Angela of Collected Yarn, rolled up her sleeves to join me in a wallpaper day, at my son's home.  I wished you could have seen some of the Lucy and Ethel moments.  Although the finish product wasn't exactly how all expected, we had a fun day of refreshing our wall papering skills.

Another client just needed some new touches on some warn dining room chairs.  Off came the cushions and on came new material.
Amazing how changing out the cushion seats can liven up a room.

My large decorating job is piling up.  Paint, Paint, Paint...can I say that one more time?  Paint can change everything.  Wednesday this week the re-upholstered furniture and drapes will be installed in three of the rooms.  I brought in a artist to paint a design on the ceiling of the dining room.  It is all coming along.  My son, who is the contractor, said the other day, "Mom, if you would stop picking things out, I could get finished."  That is the joy of re-doing your home...there is always something else that can be changed.

All the walls, crown and fireplace have been painted.  I love how the fireplace becomes the center piece.  Final pictures will be coming...these are just a few of my Instagram fast shots.

Kitchen updated - left black granite counter tops, painted cabinets in white with antique glaze,(honey oak begone), back splash added, and first new accent for kitchen...chicken that matchs the swirls of the back splash and kitchen valance.
More updated picture...before and after...to come.

Saturday before Easter became Grandsons day with Joshua and Maverick.  Uncle Ben and Joshua decorated cookies, and Maverick, ie handsome, enjoyed being with everyone and seeing Grand Mommy's ducks.

This is where I have been.  I am excited to roll out the decorating project after the big reveal this Wednesday...may my 53-year-old nerves come down!!
Where we are weak He is strong!  Yes, Jesus loves me!

He is Alive!

Easter...Resurrection...my sins paid for on the cross.  This season always puts me in a quiet mood, as I spend time before the Lord.  This year, this season was even more precious, as my eight-year-old participated with more understanding.  Our devotionals walked the road to the Cross, the Grave and the Empty Tomb.  His tender heart convicted me more than once.  My readings from Bread and Wine - Readings for Lent and Easter, brought my spirit and soul much needed reflection.

I pray this season, you too, will hear His voice and rejoice in the truth of the cross and the resurrection.

Happy Easter!!

I am learning how to do InstaGram and I have been posting pictures from my decorating job.  Somehow I just can't get it all done these days. I do so miss blogging and hope to be back soon.

As I prepare my heart for the Easter/Passover season I heard this song.  As in the past, I love to share the songs that are stirring and strengthening my walk with my Savior.  After the meeting on Human Trafficking I needed to be reminded that God is still on His throne and holds us all in His hands.

 I hope you are encouraged by these words and song.  Here is my Sunday Singing, dedicated to my Grandmother.

Words and music Newsboys

In this time of desperation
When all we know is doubt and fear
There is only One Foundation
We believe, We believe
In this broken generation
When all is dark, You help us see
There is only One Salvation
We believe, We believe

We believe in God the Father
We believe in Jesus Christ
We believe in the Holy Spirit
And He's given us new life
We believe in the crucifixion
We believe that He conquered death
We believe in the resurrection
And He's comin' back again, we believe

So, let our faith be more than anthems
Greater than the songs we sing
And in our weakness and temptations
We believe, We believe!

We believe in God the Father!
We believe in Jesus Christ!
We believe in the Holy Spirit!
And He's given us new life!
We believe in the crucifixion!
We believe that He conquered death!
We believe in the resurrection!
And He's comin' back again!

Let the lost be found and the dead be raised!
In the here and now, let love invade!
Let the church live love our God will see
We believe, We believe!
And the gates of hell will not prevail!
For the power of God, has torn the vail!
Now we know Your love will never fail!
We believe, We believe!

We believe in God the Father
We believe in Jesus Christ
We believe in the Holy Spirit
And He's given us new life!
We believe in the crucifixion!
We believe that He conquered death!
We believe in the resurrection!
And He's comin' back,
He's comin' back again!
He's comin' back again!
We believe!
We believe
