Silence is golden

Or so they say! Um, yeah – it’s all about summer, Cheyenne Frontier days, the Air Show and VBS prep here. I haven’t touched a crafty thing in the past few weeks.

It looks like I’ll be gone for another few weeks since VBS is next week then we have company coming for a few weeks. I’ll be back though.

How is your summer?

Silent Sabbath

This verse has been rolling around in my head the last few days. I’ve become a person that gets frustrated way too easily. I need to chill and change my heart focus. So with this verse and a lot of prayer – I’m trying to figure this out.

The good person out of hte good treasure of the heart prodcues good, and the evil person out of the evil treasure produces evil; for it is out of the abundance of the heart that the mouth speaks.  Luke 6:45 RSV

Some music to think on too:

This song reminds me that hard times draw me closer to Him. I don’t want to run from the hard times. I want to sink into them by sinking into Him and trusting Him to teach me, grow me and change me.

Home Management Notebook

Over the years, I have attempted to put together a home management notebook. I always thought it was a very good idea to be organized in this manner. The past attempts to follow one specific system has not worked out. This left me feeling like I failed yet again. I was also left floudering. I enjoy lists and writing things down. Problem is I’d write them on this note pad or that notepad then loose the notes. That habit does not lead to productivity. Matter of fact, it leads to a lot of frustrations and more feelings of failure.

I’ve been praying about our home lately. My prayers have been in regards to peacefulness and productivity. I’ve since tripped upon this website and that website full of wonderful printable lists. Oh boy!! 🙂 These websites made my list loving heart go pitter pat with happiness.

The printables from are free unless you want to buy them in download packs.

Listplanit has 3 different memberships that you can pay for. One is for just printing. The 2nd is for downloading and the third is a professional membership. I have not read anything about the professional membership. I went for the printing membership a few days ago. I truly enjoy being able to print whatever I want, when I want.

Through this journey today, I have discovered that I truly enjoy mind mapping my goals. I am so excited about seeing my goals in this manner. This will help me break the big goals into smaller goals then into step by step processes to reach the goals. Phew, I’m so excited!

Here’s the outside of my notebook:

Front of binder

Side of binder

I am going to have to look into where I got the success art for the front of my binder. I know it is on the web somewhere. I’ll edit this post once I find it again.

Do you have a home management binder? If so, will you share?

In memory

I know it’s nearing the end of the day but the sentiment isn’t any less lacking. It’s taken me all day of pondering, remembering and thinking to create this post. Give your family members an extra big hug today. Say a prayer of Thanksgiving for those that have given their lives. Please don’t forget those that are deployed and their family members back home.

May God be with each and everyone of us in this beautiful country.

lost the scrapbooking mojo

Where did the scrapbooking mojo go? I haven’t wanted to scrapbook the last 3 saturday nights. This is so frustrating! I have 4 photo books full of pictures. I’m not lacking things to scrap, I’m lacking the passion. I don’t want to just through pictures on paper without some heart in it. Not fun!

What do you do when you lose your passion for a craft? I need some help!

Silent Sabbath

Matthew 6:25-34 New Living Translation

25 “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? 27 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?

28 “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, 29 yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?

31 “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ 32These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. 33Seek the Kingdom of God[d] above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.

34 “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.
