So, what now……

After my last post I had a bit of down time.  I haven’t turned on my computer in a few days.  Just needed a break to sort through things.

So where am I at.  Good question.  As the leaves are changing, I feel as though I am going through change as well.  Certain life situations are forcing some of that change.  But I fill that I am being pushed into a more relaxed pace of life.  Which is something that I should not complain about but I like to be busy and doing things with and for others.

In order to dedicate my time and energy into our family situation I have postponed the Online Teen Girls Bible Study.  A weekly commitment is just something that I can not do right now.  Plus registration were down and I had a few cancellations.  So we will try for January and see if it is a go then.

I am still doing the online book study.  To be honest it is mainly selfish reasons that I am doing it.  I have a hard time sticking it out with book studies; and I learn a lot more by teaching a study rather than taking a study.  Plus I have paid for the webinar room for the year so I might as well use it.  Right?  This is a study that I have wanted to do for a while and it will be great doing it with a group of new and old friends!

I have also had God talking to me about our finances.  So I am dedicated to getting things in order and hopefully sticking to it.  I am sure there will be a few posts about that in the near future.

I am excited about taking time to relax and spend time with my family.  We are heading back to B.C. for treatments for Acacia.  Hopefully things will continue to improve for her.  I will write a post about her situation soon.  I am also spending a lot of time crocheting.  I can not believe how much I enjoy it.  Yesterday I went to a friend’s house to teach her a pattern, it is a great activity to do while visiting!  My husband and friends keep telling me to start and Etsy store.  But I don’t know if I want to start anything else.  If it starts becoming a job maybe I won’t like it anymore?  Right now I have dedicated to making hats for all the birthday parties my daughters get invited to.  I have started naming the hats after the birthday boys and girls.  Here’s my latest:

So that is what life is looking like right now.  I am looking forward to the book study and see what God wants to teach me and how I am going to grow as a person between now and next summer.  Life is a journey!


  1. I'm sorry to hear about the teen study, but happy you're keeping the fresh brewed life study. I can't wait to start. I've even calendared it so that I don't double book myself. :)

    I love your toques. I agree with your friends and family about selling them. If you don't want to comment to Etsy, what about ebay or kijjiji or even craft shows (little time commitment, have to inventory)?

  2. Did you have 1 person sign up for the study? Maybe you have to think past the numbers!!

    Your toques are amazing...think of where(wear) your gift could take you...I'm sure there are less fortunate children even in your own back yard who could use something warm on their head in your winter months. My friend asked the church ladies to donate material, she made scarves, attached a little word of encouragement and gave some away as well as selling a further herself in God's work.(she was partly fundraising to go to Africa)
    Have a great day!
    Together in Christ


I love to hear your thoughts, please feel free to share with me.
