I took the back cushion off and applied twine instead ( a buck for a roll of 100 ft at target dollar racks) then redid the cushion in the blue flowered material!! I love it now only 3 more to go!So these chairs were my grandma's, and at first glance I didn't see any potential in them what- so- ever!! Then one my second go around I was enlightened!! How I love them now!

This was exactly what I needed today! So I thought I would share with my wonderful blog land friends!!
And by the way hello new followers hope you enjoyed your visit to my world!

After living what I felt was a 'decent' life, my time on earth came to the end. The first thing I remember is sitting on a bench in the waiting room of what I thought to be a court house.The doors opened and I was instructed to come in and have a seat by the defense table.As I looked around I saw the 'prosecutor.'He was a villainous looking gent who snarled as he stared at me.  He definitely was the most evil person I have ever seen.I sat down and looked to my left and there sat My Attorney,  kind and gentle looking man whose appearance seemed so familiar to me, I felt I knew Him. The corner door flew open and there appeared the Judge in full flowing robes.He commanded an awesome presence as He moved across the room I couldn't take my eyes off Him.As He took His seat behind the bench, He said, 'Let us begin.'The prosecutor rose and said,'My name is Satan and I am here to show you why this man belongs in hell.'He proceeded to tell of lies that I told, things that I stole, and In the past when I cheated others. Satan told of other horrible Perversions that were once in my life and the more he spoke, the further down in my seat I sank. I was so embarrassed that I couldn't look at anyone, even my own Attorney, as the Devil told of sins that even I had completely forgotten about. As upset as I was at Satan for telling all these things about me, I was equally upset at My Attorney who sat there silently not offering any form of defense at all. I know I had been guilty of those things, but I had done some good in my life - couldn't that at least equal out part of the harm I'd done? Satan finished with a fury and said, 'This man belongs in hell, he is guilty of all that I have charged and there is not a person who can prove otherwise.' When it was His turn, My Attorney first asked if He might approach the bench.  The Judge allowed this over the strong objection of Satan, and beckoned Him to come forward..As He got up and started walking, I was able to see Him in His full splendor and majesty. I realized why He seemed so familiar; this was Jesus Christ representing me, my God and Savior. He stopped at the bench and softly said to the Judge, 'Hi, Dad,' and then He turned to address the court.'Satan was correct in saying that this man had sinned, I won't deny any of these allegations. And, yes, the wages of sin is death, and this man deserves to be punished.'Jesus took a deep breath and turned to His Father with outstretched arms and proclaimed, 'However, I died on the cross so that this person might have eternal life and he has accepted Me as his Savior, so he is Mine.' Jesus continued with, 'His name is written in the Book of Life,  and no one can snatch him from Me.Satan still does not understand yet.  This man is not to be given justice, but rather mercy.'As Jesus sat down, He quietly paused, looked at His Father and said, 'There is nothing else that needs to be done.''I've done it all.'The Judge lifted His mighty hand and slammed the gavel down.  The following words bellowed from His lips...'This man is free.  The penalty for him has already been paid in full.  'Case dismissed.'As Jesus led me away, I could hear Satan ranting and raving, 'I won't give up, I will win the next one.' I asked Jesus as He gave me my instructions where to go next, 'Have you ever lost a case?' Christ lovingly smiled and said,'Everyone that has come to Me and asked Me to represent them has received the same verdict as you, ~Paid In Full~. Passing this on to anyone you consider a friend,(As I have done here), will bless you both.'Stop telling God how big your storm is. Instead, tell the storm how big your God is!' Thank You God!!!!!!

Is constently moving, changing, sometimes we get so caught up in it that we forget to bask in the moments,in small moments with our children, husband and friends.

I had a quiet drive to pheonix to pick up my step daughter from school for the weekend, as I got close I saw 2 younger children walking down the road, and I was takin back to my 13 birthday party it was rainy and my mom had made me a huge brownie with tweety bird on top( yes old school tweety was cool, heck at one point I had my room and all my bedding and bathroom done in tweety bird!) after the party was over we headed to get gas and I remember looking out the window thinking next 14 then 15 and then 16........ Fast forward to 16 I met the prince charmin, 17 engaged, and by 18 I was married with a 5 month old ( yes we had our first baby together before we were married), by 20 we were on the verge on divorce with 2 childrenin the mix and at that point it wasn't looking like it was going to be a pretty one, but thank God above my parent and sister and brothers stepped in and really helped guide us and be there for both of us! We worked hard and prayed harder for our marriage and family to work through our problems! Well we are happy as ever 3 yrs later! That little angel we had when we got married starts school this year. We have 4 healthy beatiful happy children running around our house at any given time and through the day sometimes I forget to slow down and enjoy their little quirks and soak in their innocence, my goal from now on is to sit down and color or play toys with them more often, I want to incourage a deep faith in Christ, inspire creativity and love and hope!
