One happy girl!

I have finished one of the 4 "wips" I have going...this one is for my daughter Emily.  She loves...loves...loves hedgehogs...
so I made her this little pillow...well not little it is 17x17.

She has been going through a hard time these past few months...being 15 is so hard and it is complicated for her with the challenges of her added mental health issues.  So there are a lot of people praying for her right now and hopefully a cuddly soft pillow to hug when she is feeling not good.  It is made out of flannel so it is especially cuddly...

Sometimes I wonder why life is so darn hard...our family has had a lot of struggles this past hubby's job was deleted ,our oldest child moving out,  my ongoing health issues, 1 daughter with Autism spectrum disorder and another with a list of struggles including ADD, OCD, low frustration tolerance and depression.  Yet I still feel God's hand in my life His encouragement and love so ever present.  I could not imagine my life without my faith.  It is this faith and trust in Christ that pushes me to be creative and share with others...not only my crafts but my faith in Him as well.

There is no easy path for us here in this world, the only straight path leads to a relationship with Jesus and after that you just hang on to Him as the world swirls around you.  I am so blessed, yes I said it, blessed even with all the trials of life I still hold onto the Truth of Jesus and His promises to me, in that I never waiver!

Blessings to you all...
