Sunday Verses


Happy Sunday! I have always been more of an optimist, believe in the power of positive thinking. But, some days it is just hard to focus on the positive.  On these days, when I remember,  I force myself to stop the stinkin' thinkin' by mentally listing 10 things I am thankful for. I have also kept a gratitude journal throughout various tough life times and believe that it can be life changing.  This week when you find yourself grumbling and focusing on the bad, stop and think about and be thankful for the good things in your life.

Live Edge Reclaimed Wood Table

A new load of reclaimed barn wood means I get to play in the workshop.

I got three long hunks of reclaimed, live edge wood and decided one need to be used as a sofa table (or entry table).

More Courage on MORE Mondays

easy ways to overcome fears
Have you seen this video of a girl who faced 100 of her fears in 100 days?!
easy way to face our fears
Video HERE

Wow, super brave, right?  It got me to thinking, what are my fears and how can I overcome them.  I have some little fears such as, "Do I look like an idiot wearing this?" and the BIG ones, "What if my child dies while driving to school."

Sunday Verses

inspiring verse for Easter Sunday
Happy Easter! Today we celebrate the empty tomb. We celebrate Jesus's victory over death. We remember the hope of his promises and are assured that Jesus will do what he says he will do, we need only to believe. May today remind you that there is victory over death, light in the dark places, healing where there is pain, hope when things seem hopeless. Rejoice and rest--Jesus has conquered the grave!

Old Grate Industrial Table

I definitely believe in the saying, "One man's trash, is another man's treasure" and I am sure the former owners of our 1931 schoolhouse thought these old grates (I found three tucked in a corner of the basement) were junk.

More Patience

ways to more patient

Boy, I am becoming more and more aware of my own impatience and the impatient world we are living in.  


We live in a time when instant gratification is rampant and it has created impatient, angry people.
