Handmade Tuesdays 5.1.12

Happy May Day! I cannot believe it is May already, crazy!! Forgive me for not posting, I ran the Country Music 1/2 Marathon on Saturday and have continually refreshed to see if they posted the pictures yet as I cannot wait for them. Truth be told, my training was basically non-existant so I had fun during my walk/run (and am in a LOT of pain right now because of it). I gave peace and thumbs up to all the cameras, danced at mile 9 and ran across the finish line.

Oh a more serious note, thank you for your prayers. Life is very crazy right now and I really have no idea why certain things happen the way they do but I just know that God is in control and until I am content naked in a field with nothing but the Good Lord than nothing else will ever give me contentment. Let me see what you have for me this week!

  5. Congratulations on this accomplishment! My sister and I did this last september and it felt so good to hold hands and run across the finish line!!

    And you are speaking the truth about contentment and who it comes from. Enjoy the journey and know that, as a fellow sister in Christ, I will be praying for you.

  6. Hello and good morning! There are mean, bitty ants taking up residence in my garden. I wanted to get rid of the pests without icky chemical sprays. I’m sharing a simple recipe for Ant Deterrent (#131). It works great and is simple to make. Thanks for hosting the party once again. Have a great week!
