Sewing, blessings, and plans

 

Warning: This post has no particular topic and is very rambling.

It feels like every post I’ve shared for the last few weeks has begun with “Things have been so busy” or “I’ve been so busy sewing….” This has been a very full month, and quite truthfully I don’t see things slowing down anytime soon.  Sewing jobs keep pouring in. The Lord is really blessing my little sewing business and opened a door last week for me to begin designing and threadcreating a modest dress line for a clothing company based in Florida.  I’ll share more on that later ;)

I didn’t realize just how MUCH I sew until the other night and we were out with some married friends, Jathan and Nikki. Nikki was asking me about how kept from being bored the months we were in Waco and I said “Oh it wasn’t that bad, I---" Jathan finished my sentence for me, in a rather high voice “I had my sewing machine with me”. We all got a good laugh from that.

March is here. This is one of our busy birthday months with 6 family birthdays coming up. There are several birthday parties in our future and spring break is on it’s way ;) For many years now Jacob and his family and our pastor’s family and a few others from church have always gone to the deerlease for spring break and this year will be no exception.

Last weekend my sister Wendi can and stayed several nights with us.  We had such a good time with lots of giggles and BBC chick flicks. I can’t believe that she will be 13 this year. Where has time gone?

I am more thankful everyday for the ability to be a stay-at-home wife. I am so blessed. I get to stay at home and do the things I love—take care of the house and sew.  The Lord has taken care of us down to the smallest detail and we have wanted for nothing this first year of marriage.  When we first married Jacob wasn’t sure we  could make it on one income, especially with the all of  debt that he had.  A little more than a year later, after doing things according to the Word, we will be completely out of debt by the end of this year. When you do things right and in line with God’s Word, He takes care of the rest.

On another note, please keep some dear friends of ours in your prayers—they lost their home to a fire last Sunday night. Everyone was alright, with the exception of the loss of some pets. Please hold them up in prayer.
