If you are interested in painting furniture she sells an e-book with great instructions!
I love to create things, and I love to learn how to do something new.  It's really hard to keep my attention on something so I often start new projects and have new ideas.  In the last few years, I've learned to sew; specifically quilt, make hair bows for little girls, to machine embroider, make memo boards, make my own laundry detergent and cleaning supplies, the list goes on and on.

To my family the fact that I've started researching how to do something else is not new.   I always research for days and even weeks before I start something.  There are things that I'd like to do that are way beyond my ability, but then there are somethings that I see and think "Hey, I can do that!" Of course my family just wonders how long it will keep my attention.

Anyway I've been researching how to redo furniture and I've found some really cool blogs that I'd like to share.  Hopefully over the next few weeks I'll have a few pieces of my own to share.  I may never sell anything but I have a few pieces in my house that are older than dirt that need a fresh look.

A Greater Yes

Good Morning!  I very rarely post on Sunday mornings because I'm super busy getting ready for church but this morning I wanted to take just a minute to post a song I heard this weekend.  You see I am at our annual church convention and we are blessed to have many talented musicians & singers in our organization.  Yesterday one of the sisters sang this song and it seemed like the words spoke to my heart.  I hope you enjoy it too!
Here are the lyrics.....

Verse 1:
It starts with a desire, planted deep within your heart
You pray in faith, and wait for God to move
Time passes and you wonder
Did He hear me when I called?
Should I even have prayed that prayer at all

You never pray a prayer, your Father will not answer
He can't ignore His child's earnest request
While you're waiting and believing
For what you thought was best
Trust God if He says no….. You're still Blessed
There must be a greater yes

Verse 2:
There comes a time when child-like faith
Must graduate to trust
Trials come and you're convinced you're on your own
But the teacher's often silent
During the hardest test
But He'll answer when It's time with what is best

Sometimes God will answer - just like we prayed
Then other times what's on His mind
Is a better plan, a another way, a greater yes
