remodel of my craft room, it's Done! and it's awesome!

In the beginning I used anything I could get my hands on for storage and it was good. But I had a dream>

Some day I wanted cabinets to put my stuff in. I promise it will be neat and tidy!!!
That someday has come. Some friends Johanna and Craig saw my vision and came across some cabinets..

With their help, Well them doing most everything I saw my dream come true!

Gary did all the peg board work and I love it all!

My little piece of Heaven, til God calls me home=:)

Comfort Squares Dedication

At Church I started a new ministry with several friends. Joan Baumgardner, Robyn Crandell, Darleen Minnich, Beth Werner.The person I attribute our name : Comfort Sowers" to is Mary Ellen Brown


This ministry is based on 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 "praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God"

We have made Comfort squares, which are butterflies for women, signifying new life and Christian fish for men, signifying Fishers of men. There are prayer strings attached and each time a knot is tied a prayer is said for the person who possesses the Comfort Square.

6/13/2010 is the dedication ceremony for the squares being offered to the congregation for the first time, ( although we have already given out 6)

Sean Jr Spent the night

This isn't a new thing Sean has spent many nights at our house. He really likes it in the summer, because he can go swimming. So we did! Then we took him to a playground he had never been to, and we did some crafts, Always have to do crafts when you come to Grandma's.

Before he came over, he asked his dad.. "What time does Grandma's open?" He was very anxious. For all my grandkids, I am open 24-7 365!
