"Love" & "Joy" to You!

What a great day! A broken relationship with a coworker was restored today~~~I feel quite blessed.

Tonight is doggie training night. I played hooky! Actually, Rich is the dog training student with Sierra, our border-collie/Lab mix. I'm at home working on a necklace. It's chrysocola, and I'll post it when I finish it in a few days. These prehnite earrings are from last November. I loved stamping the copper!

Inspiring quote from Karen Kingsbury's novel "Rejoice":

"I believe with all my heart the secret is in our attitude. Life's circumstances don't improve by being anxious or angry or upset. But God calls us to rise above our circumstances, and that starts first in our attitudes."

"From Philippians 4:4- Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!"

I'm rejoicing, my friends. God bless you all.

Chris, I LOVE these! They look like they'd be so much fun to wear! I also love the inspiration. The older I get, the more I believe it. Worry gets you nowhere, it's best to just give it to God, and pray for strength. Bless you, sweet friend.

These are really beautiful Chris. Your stamping is so perfect~I love them.
And, yes, Rejoice! I know your heart is singing right now. Restoration is such a freeing experience isn't it? Please pray that restoration can be spread in my family, because we have many, many fragments in it.
Love you my sister~
