as of lately

so it takes ME coming to my own blog to see that I haven't written anything in a week! geez louise! 

I've got alot to spill, so bear with me if you'd like for a long post! I'd also like to apologize to the wonderful sponsors on my sidebar, because I've been crappy at supporting and promoting you! Please come back and renew for November! lol 

To be honest, I have been feeling a bit down in the dumps. My mind is pre-occupied, worry filled and with a 100 things going on in my brain at one time, does that happen to you too? I know I have built up stress because I am getting a  cold sore--ewwww! lol. Time to pile that Carmex on!

This Wednesday is my doctors appointment following up from the bronch with my pulmonary doctor. I am not sure if i mentioned this in my last post, but if we change my trache again, we're going to do it with me in the hospital for at least one night stay to make sure I am breathing properly and everything's ok. As of Wednesday, my plans are up in the air.

Seriously, I sometimes think that God uses other plans, His plans, to get in the way (as my humanity sees it slightly) of my plans for my own good, of course. Having these breaks of normal routine can drive one crazy with the uncertainty or "interruptions" of daily life, but at these exact times, I learn to trust MORE and confide MORE into my heavely father. At these times, I turn MORE quiet (because believe it or not, i am a loud person!) and with more silence I listen better to what He is saying. 

 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
---Romans 8:28

I don't always hear what is He is trying to tell me because I've become distracted with the noise of the world, but sometimes, these trials or worries MAKE me bury within in my shell of solitude and just be still. 

I could sure use being more still, because I get anxious and feel like i HAVE to move. I am restless. God helps me rest.

Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
---psalm 46:10

Sigh. Let's move on.

Last week, i made cards in prep for a holiday boutique that my stepmom is hosting in a couple weeks! She'll sell my cards for me there! 
My sister is going to sell her fancy picture frames! If I had planned better, I would have noticed that I was running out of blank cards & envelopes.

I will have to get creative and just find, cut and fold in half some blank cardstock. {workin with what i got yo!} This serves as a reminder for me to buy a pack of black and white cardstock and/or a pack of neutral colors in addition to stocking up on blank card packages! 
Hopefully this weekend I'll be able to get to Michael's!

Here is a fave I made:

On Saturday, my caregiver Sofia and I stopped by a couple yard sales in my neighborhood. I scored a cute scarf for my hair for 50cents. I also got the dvd, Waitress, starring Keri Russell! 

We also got a [hopefully] working VCR! Remember those things? lol. I have a small collection of VHS movies at my dad's house that i'd just love to see again!

That scarf is too cute and it makes even better when you know you got such a deal.
I went to thrift store yesterday and bought a skull candle for Halloween for .50cents. I'm so happy!

I love that you can find God in your circumstances and that you take the time to be still and learn what he's trying to teach you! That's something I'm working on, too! xoxo

I love your scarf, B! And I'm so excited for your cards to be sold! I will pray that you hear God's words, and that you cast your worries on Him. I have verses for you; the first is Psalm 55:22, "Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken." and the other is, 1 Peter 5:7, "Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."

Love you!♥
