I am proud to report that I am one step closer to my craft room being more organized and manageable.
There are a few truths to be had, the first of which I am realising even more that the word “no” needs to be a bigger part of my vocabulary. I am thrilled to receive items from folks that they feel I can use, especially for the hospice craft club. Honest truth is I will graciously accept items and often if they are damaged or unusable they are trashed. If they are usable and do not fit the purpose for the club they are donated to our thrift store.
I need to make concise easy to read and understand list(s) of supplies needed for upcoming projects. Giving myself permission and a reminder that it doesn’t have to be perfect. The love of the folks I work with are the completeness and perfection far beyond what I can imagine. 2 Corinthians 4:7 ” However, we possess this precious treasure [the divine Light of the Gospel] in [frail, human] vessels of earth, that the grandeur and exceeding greatness of the power may be shown to be from God and not from ourselves.” Amplified bible . This verse is also translated to us being broken pots. I figure if God himself refers to us as earthen and fragile vessels yet uses us for his glory that is really what life is about.
On a side note Happy 19th Anniversary Michael. Thank you for your loving yet strong leadership in our home. Stamp happy and be a blessing! Until next time…..
