God's gift to me today.

Sometimes in life you can get really low, look around and wonder "where am I and does anyone know I'm even here." You pray that God hears your cries, knows how sad you are and that He will bring someone or something into your life to show you how much He loves you and to soften your pain. So often we miss His answer to our prayers. We get busy going about our life, plugging through another day, and we simply miss Him. Today...God sent my best friend.
You see, I've been low lately...wondering if anyone knows I'm still here, knows I'm struggling. Well, God knew. My best friend, Sandy, texted me today and wanted my input on her new blog. She said she wanted to know what I thought of it and if it would be something I would keep reading if I just came across it. After work I came home, looked it up and read it. To my surprise, she had wrote about our friendship and what I meant to her. Through tears I read what she had wrote. You see, I love her and she loves sisters. Like God himself, before either of us were ever born, made us best friends. It was designed this way. Any we've always known this. It was, from the beginning, always easy for us to be friends. We knew we had each others matter what. We've been through it all. Sadness, sickness, a little breakin-the-law too (that's a secret though). But until I read what she wrote, I had no idea how she saw me. I didn't know I was that special in her eyes.
Isn't it the same with God? We don't see ourselves as He sees us. Today, He showed me that...through my friend Sandy. And the funny thing is, He knew that I would probably only get it...coming from her.
Thank you Sandy. Thank you for loving me and for being my friend. My life would have been so different without you in it. I can't even imagine.

CrossStitchCrazy 2012 (Facebook)

Yes...I know. It's been over a year since I've posted anything. However, not too many people actually follow my blog so I doubt anyone's all broken up over this. LOL
New year...2012! I have joined a project on Facebook called CrossStitchCrazy 2012 and this is day 1 & 2 of my progress. These are WIP's (works in progress) so don't think I'm that fast. The way it works is we all start a new (or WIP) for the first 15 days of January. Then throughout the year we work on all 15 projects and 'hopefully' finish them by the end of the year...sharing along the way.
Thanksgiving & Christmas was very strange this year. Almost felt like I was just watching them go by. Oh's a new year and I wish everyone the best year ever. I'll keep posting my progress.

Saying Goodbye

Sunday, November 7, 2010, God called home a BC friend...Jonnie B. McCoy...after a yearlong battle. Jonnie enjoyed the outdoors and spending time with her family. She was a vibrant, kind and giving person full of joy and laughter. Even though this past year was filled with fear and uncertainty, and in the end a lot of pain and suffering, she remained strong and brave. About a week before she passed when asked about how she was doing she said "It's a win-win situation. If I beat this...I win. If I die, I go home to see Jesus and I win." When I heard those words I knew she had beaten her illness. Because God had already beaten it with Jesus' salvation, Jonnie was free. It would not weigh her down and keep her in bondage.
Jonnie is the first BC friend that I've lost and the poingnancy is staggering. We pray for healing and restoration and we know God answers prayers, we just never prepare ourselves for Him saying "no". He has his reasons for taking her home now and we will have to trust Him on that. I'm happy she's not suffering any longer and I will miss her, but I know I will see her in Heaven. God Bless Jonnie!

Think Pink!

This is really nice. I found this on someone's blog and decided to repost to mine.

Pink is the color of hope to a Breast Cancer Survivor!

Autumn, Pumpkins, everybody ready?

I started looking today for pumpkin soup recipes and found a nice website I wanted to share. I've never made pumpkin soup, which is strange considering I love pumpkins. I'll give one a try and let you know how it turns out.

Newest Cross Stitch / Mirabilia - Autumn in my Garden

I just started this over Labor Day weekend and I already love it. The colors make me long for the leaves to start changing on the trees. I love this time of year. I'm going to stick with this one until it's finished. I'll post pics of my progress.
Happy September!

Just getting started and realizing this is hard. I feel old 'cause I'm sure there are younger people this kind of stuff comes second nature to. Anyway, I'm gonna figure it out. I want this site to be about 2 least. My breast cancer survival and my cross stitch projects. My two biggest passions.

Anyway, watch for more info.

Thanks! Chelle
