thursday trilogy

one)
I am trying to get back into a regular system of blogging. I miss it. I am so thankful that I am feeling almost back to myself again. On Sunday, I was talking with a wonderful woman who has gone through immense pain in her lifetime. She asked how I was. I wanted to say, "I feel amazing." But feeling sheepish, I instead told her that I was doing well. She said to me, "Do you almost feel like you shouldn't feel as good as you do?" "Yes! Yes, yes--I do!" "That's grace, Sarah", she said. And that summed everything up for me. I shouldn't feel as great as I do--emotionally or physically. But, I do because of the grace that God has bestowed upon me. And not only have I, in a very personal way, known the grace of God through a peace that has passed every ounce of my human understanding, I have known God's grace on a new level--His grace manifested to me through the prayers of so many on our behalf.

thursday trilogy
friday favorite

Some of my very favorite blogs are those that are organized in such a way-- in that each day has a specific venue. One of my goals for this year is to use my blog more for the purpose of Cranny, while retaining elements of our everyday life.

I am so thankful for the outlet Cranny has been for me. I am also thankful for my husband and his amazing ideas. We chatted about Cranny ideas while we laid in bed the other night and he just was full of grand ideas for the etsy shop. Speaking of, I am still wanting to fulfill my tenth state deal for Cranny. It's coming-- as soon as I finish all of my projects for the itty bitties;-)

thanks for reading!

  6. hi friends,
    I don't know if you will get this--so I should probably shoot you an email. The Lord took our second baby and the process of a miscarriage just knocked me out for a while. That, and being so nauseous for the first nine weeks of the pregnancy! But God has been so good and I have seen His hand through every step of this trial! I will share more in the future--but that is the basic reason for my disappearance;-) thanks for sticking with me!
