The kids and I came up to the beautiful Smoky Mountains for a few days of rest and will be joined by my sweet hubby tomorrow night. I can’t wait for him to arrive. I need him to be here because, once again, I feel like a part of me is missing. Last week it was the kids at camp, and now it’s my man. I’m ready for my whole family to be together and stay together for more than just a few days.
This is what I am looking at while I am drinking my coffee and reading my Bible and playing on my computer.
And this is my Bible! This is the Word of God! This is Truth! This is full of His promises!
Right now, I am leaning on His promise to fill me and my family with strength as my mom has just, this day, been diagnosed with breast cancer.
I am claiming His promise that we CAN do all things through Him who gives us strength.
I am believing that by the stripes on Jesus’ back, my mom IS healed!
I am trusting that this is the road that God wants us to travel right now and we will do it with Him holding our hands and directing us every step of the way.
I believe the Word when it says that with God all things are possible!
Can I just tell you what God is to me?
He is my Strength! He is my Fortress! He is my Peace! He is my Comforter! He is my Provider! He is my Father! He is my Daddy! He is full of wisdom! He in control, and I fully trust in His perfect will!
He holds my mama in His hands and He knows just what she needs!
He knows what you need today also. Don’t ever forget that, sweet friends.
This sign hangs on the wall in the cabin that we are staying in. How perfect that God would put us in a cabin full of pictures and signs that speak to my family so clearly during this time. I thank Him and praise Him for that gift.
I will definitely be casting my cares upon the Lord, because I know full well that He cares for me!!!
If you believe in the power of prayer like I do, please pray for my mom. Her name is Judy.
I love you all.

Hello to all of my friends! Hope you are all doing wonderful!!
I have been so excited over the last few weeks to have found some really neat Etsy shops out there.
Since I am now an Etsy shop owner myself, I really like to look around at what others are doing with their shops.
Inspiration, you know!
Take a quick look at what I have found and where I have found it and then take a few minutes and check out the shops for yourself.
I found this wonderful green wall sconce over at Blue Ridge Altered Art.
You know I love that chippy green!
My next purchase came from another great shop called Post Road Vintage.
I got two of these flower frogs with hangers to use with my blue green jars.
She has some great stuff in her shop!
Are you thinking that I order a lot of stuff from Etsy? I really don’t. I have just treated myself a little over the last month while also supporting some fellow Etsy friends.
Okay, last shop but certainly not the least one.
I ordered a beautiful little peat pot of lavender from a gorgeous shop called Junk to Joy. Not only did I get my lovely bouquet of lavender, but Becky also included a few other little surprises. (I think it was an early birthday gift and she didn’t even know it was my birthday)
Look at what I got…
Can you believe all of these pretties in one package?
Didn’t I tell you this was a sweeeeet package from Junk to Joy?
I have found so many more shop owners out there that are just as fantastic. I’ll introduce you to them sometime soon.
If you go visiting any of these shops, let them know Amy sent you.
Have a great Monday and God bless!
