Monday Makings and Prayers Requested

Good morning dear friends!  Hope this cold Monday morning finds you rested from your weekend.  I have been working away on Christmas items lately, so I thought I would share some pictures with you before I get to some sad news.

All these are or will be listed in my Etsy or Ebay shops.  Today I'm going to work on some snow people and other goodies for the upcoming holidays. 

Last night I revamped my long neglected Selling Blog and I have some items listed there as well...including a couple of extra washboards I picked up last week when I purchased a bunch of them.

Now for the sad news....I wasn't going to share this until I knew it was okay to go ahead and do so....Last Friday, October 21, my dear son, Drew and new daughter-in-law, Maria experienced a miscarriage, and lost their baby.  You will recall I had just posted about the baby a few weeks back, and it is with much sadness that I tell you all this.  After a trip to the ER and several doctor's appointments, Maria found out that she has a polyp or growth of some kind, which prevented the pregnancy for progressing.  She will find out more this week, but I am asking for a wave of prayers for God's blessings on her...that the spot, once biopsied, is benign, and that the doctor can eradicate it and Maria will be as good as new.  If you can spare the time, you can extend your well wishes to Maria over at her blog, The Frenzied Fox Artwork.  She would love to have your support and prayers...while you are there, why not become a follower of her blog too...that would mean so much to her as well!

In other news, last Thursday I donned my rubber gloves and canned 13 jars of hot peppers for Mr. Whimzies - he loves them. 

We also had Drew & Maria over for dinner and I whipped up this yummy apple pie...which by now is just a memory - mmm mmm good!

I pray that you will treasure today and show your family how much they mean to you.  Life is so precious.

Autumn Blessings Friends

  9. After I thought about it, I thought that some may see my first sentence in my comment as heartless, what I mean by "it will all work out in the end, if it's not worked out, it's not the end" is to never give up hope. Kendra
