Just wanted to share a few of my Valentine decorations with you …

long heart chain from sheet music

This chain of hearts was inspired by Jill Ruth & Co. but instead of sewing it, I punched a couple slits in the top and bottom of each heart and strung some ribbon through.  I embellished it with a couple vintage paper flowers and hung it with an old vintage brooch.

At the beginning of the year, I had created some framed new years resolutions … ‘Choose Joy’, ‘Scatter Kindness”, and “Simplify” that were inspirations from my daughter.  Since the background was red, just adding a couple stuffed linen hearts by them transforms them into great Valentine decorations.

Happy New Year!

Reflecting on 2011, I have many blessings that I am so thankful for … my family, my faith, my health, and my friends.  As I look forward to 2012, there is one area of my life that I would like to work on …

I need to heed Psalm 46:10, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth”.  I get so busy sometimes that I’m not listening to what’s going on around me.  There are times that I just need to slow down and share God’s love with those around me …

Happy Thanksgiving

Psalm 28:7 –The LORD is my strength and my shield; My heart trusts in Him, and he helps me.  My heart leaps for joy, And with my song I praise Him.

Count Your Blessings (Unknown Author)

I’ve never made a fortune,
and it’s probably too late now.
But I don’t worry about that much,
I’m happy anyhow.

And as I go along life’s way,
I’m reaping better than I sowed.
I’m drinking from my saucer,
‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

Haven’t got a lot of riches,
and sometimes the going’s tough.
But I’ve got loving ones all around me,
and that makes me rich enough.

I thank God for his blessings,
and the mercies He’s bestowed.
I’m drinking from my saucer,
‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

I remember times when things went wrong,
My faith wore somewhat thin.
But all at once the dark clouds broke,
and the sun peeped through again.

So Lord, help me not to gripe,
about the tough rows I have hoed.
I’m drinking from my saucer,
‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

If God gives me strength and courage,
When the way grows steep and rough.
I’ll not ask for other blessings,
I’m already blessed enough.

And may I never be too busy,
to help others bear their loads.
Then I’ll keep drinking from my saucer,
‘Cause my cup has overflowed.
