Back to Normal????

Is there such a thing? I think we all have a definition of what is "normal" to us.

Whatever it is for you, I hope you find your way back to your "normal" this year. We have been on a roller coaster ride in the last two years. I have learned so much about myself and others. I have also learned more about how amazing my God is and how much he loves me!

As we start a new year, we are more settled. We are still on a journey. I am excited to see where God will take us this year. The more I think about our life and our family, I really don't know what our "normal" is. I really don't think I want a "normal" life. I want to be in God's will. I want to do what He wants me to do. I want to be faithful to Him. He is always faithful to me!

Deuteronomy 7:9
"Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the FAITHFUL God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS."

I don't want a "normal" life. I pray you don't either!

ZOUT Action Foam....is the best stain remover ever!!! Yes, I spelled it correctly! Zout! I started using Zout about four months ago. A friend was cooking supper for us. As she splattered and soiled her shirt while cooking, she merely went and sprayed this product directly on her shirt she was wearing. I was shocked! It immediately started to disappear! I have been very pleased with this product until this week. Now I am in love with this stuff! I had grease stains on the front of one of my best shirts. I immediately sprayed Zout on the stain and washed it the next day. I didn't think about the stain, so without checking for it I put it in the dryer. The stain was still there. "Okay," I thought. I will try this one more time. So I put more Zout on the already washed in and dried grease stain. Your hand could not cover the area of the stain! To my amazement, after the second wash with Zout the dried grease stain was gone!!!! I will not buy anything else again!!!

You can find Zout at your local store. The price is comparative to the other brands. It comes in a bright red bottle. DO NOT CONFUSE this red bottle with another name brand item. I also used the other "name brand" item in the red bottle... After using their brand, my shirts look like I had sprayed oil on them on purpose! I hope you will try it and let me know if you like it as much as I do!

My mod-podge Christmas....

This Christmas was wonderful...full of special times with family and friends! I wanted to make something special for Christmas gifts this year. The grandparents and special friends are getting harder to buy for! They either have everything I can't afford or I don't want to buy what I can afford! So, as I started on this journey I was inspired to buy a few unfinished wood pieces. As I began to think about what I could do, pictures of the kids came to mind. I didn't want to ruin any good pictures so I decided to just print them from the computer. As I kept going with this thought it just all came together. The kids painted the wood. We found a cute tray for grandma, a closable box for Granny and Nana Pat. I used a circular piece for Nanny. I collected some pictures when they were younger to the present. I wasn't so sure about the "mod-podge" at first. I had some air bubles and was just praying all the pics wouldn't be smudged. They were awesome. A priceless gift for just a little effort!

I made rectangled wood signs for some friends. Some were sports related, others quoted great scriptures! I will continue this throughout the year. Thank you, God for the inspiration!!!
