Tuesday Love!

I am currently working on so many crochet projects that it is overwhelming.  I eat, sleep and play thnking about crocheting new and old projects.  I wake up with new designs in my head.  I have started so many but do not complete them because of orders or life's circumstances.

Recently I had the most life changing, mind altering circumstance happen in my life.  My son (who is 19 years old) was almost fatally wounded leaving a party.  The blessing is that he is alive!  He is walking, talking, laughing and PRAYING, thanks to the mercy of God!!!

With this act of mercy, grace and unselfish love that God has placed in my life and the life of my family I have a renewed since of power.  The scripture, "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength" takes on a new meaning.

Now, I know and believe that this new calling on my life to crochet and create beautiful clothing and accessories is reachable.  There is no one who can stop me from meeting this goal but me.  Once God equips you with life and a gift it is up to you to nurture it, to believe in it and to multiply it.  God gives you a gift to be a blessing to yourself, your family and others. 

With this new profound sense of awesome power you will see beautiful crocheted and (eventually) knitted items manifesting on behalf of Lovepetals Crochet.  Im not saying that there wont be days that I wont be discouraged, Im only human, but I will say that I wont let it overwhelm me.  I will use my son's life to remind me that tomorrow isnt promised so I must push forward and make the most of today.  I hope you will follow me on this journey.  It will be a wild and bumpy ride but I believe it will be well worth it.
