Retired bookkeeper with creative "gifts"
I'm here to...
Open up my circle of contact with believers
Learning more about the Bible, deepening my relationship with Jesus,
discovering new ways to express my God given creativity, especially in ways when I can repurpose, refit, recycle, or reuse items that ordinarily are considered useless, expired, or worn out.
I'm passionate about...
Sharing God's love, my dogs, my daughter & my grands..& please don't tell them what order they fell!
My story with God
I accepted Christ as my Savior 53 yrs ago @ age of 12. By time I was a senior in high school, I had a part time job which involved weekend work & I started missing church more & more frequently. I started spending more time w/ people I worked, not knowing whether they were Christian or not, partying & having fun. It wasn't long & I was married & then another year passed & I was a mother. Before my daughter turned five, I was divorced. What I'm getting at is... my life just sorta happened... It didn't scare me or make me mad or angry. I loved my life but not necessarily the way certain things had unfolded (like the end of my marriage) I had ups & downs but we all do... down was not for me!
The foundation of my Christian life was only based on my "Sunday School" learnings.. up until the time I started to work at 17...then my church attendance fell off. I thought I had a good understanding of the Bible & I knew my faith was strong but I didn't know how to live my life for Christ. I got caught up in living my life for those around me.. my family, first, which I really did not come to see until nearly a half century had passed. Whew! I've never really written about this, only thought it & tried to tell a couple of people, not many, it's too hard. Well, my daughter grew up, had some truly hard times & ended up making some bad decisions which cost her dearly.. but she did have a good foundation (raised in the church from 3 1/2 up & I got her into the school our church opened when she started 2nd grade which she graduated from). She got herself straightened out & during her time at rehab, I spent a lot of time in prayer & examining my relationship with God. My daughter getting lost & finding her way back showed me how lost I'd been. She went to work at the faith based rehab program after completing their one year program & continued in their employ for over 5 or 6 years. During the last couple years, we started taking college classes together which focused mainly on the Bible or religious based subjects. I learned then how little I had known about the Bible previously but it was such an enjoyable experience I wish we could have continued on forever.
Sorry I went on & on but I don't tell short stories well!:( I got off on the wrong foot with God by not putting Him first. When I was a child, I heard "family first" and I remembered it and took it to heart. I guess I thought God would understand. I also had to learn how to "let go & let God" ... not to have worry about every little do what I could & have faith God will take care of the rest.. that He is the only one who sees the big picture...
I want now to live my life in service to Him but I'm not sure exactly what His will for the rest of my life ..maybe if I can just discover His will for me for today...
Other stuff about me:
I am currently using copper wire to make things like angels, crosses, miniature baskets (some with heart tops).. some only large enough for one jelly bean & others large enough for one egg. I also make hair barrettes of sorts & bracelets. I make miniature vases with flowers from 1 1/2" tall up to about 4 1/2" tall. The flowers are either simple twisted wire flowers or they have tiny, delicately, hand painted petals & leaves. I often make custom orders with names or initials for pendants or Keychain.
Previously, I've made handbags from recycled denim. I've also made beautiful cashmere clutches. I crocheted for a few of years until my family told me they had all the afghans they needed for awhile!:) The birth of my first grandson was really the event that brought out the artist in me, literally. I began drawing when he was six weeks old & I spent so much time holding him while he slept. Later on I experimented with pastels & oils.
But I've gone overboard with each way of artistic expression.. to the point I ended up quitting... the wire crafts have been the only craft that I can actually stop and start and not spend 8 - 10 hours a day every day doing.
