I think of you often when I'm feeling overwhelmed. It's so hard sometimes having so many kids....."shoveling in a snow storm" comes to me often too. I keep thinking that God would have us thrive, even in times as these....but when you feel like you're just keeping your head above water,.....I think of that psalm that says that we wait IN HOPE because he is our help....

do you feel that you loose hope? I do. When that happens, it's all a steep slippery slope from there. It's hard to hang on to hope when all is falling apart around you. I can't imagine doing this without God's grace, help, power and unconditional love....

Your list is tempting....1000 things is alot! I guess you can do it in stages.....

Fresh Flowers, you have a lovely blog. And the list of 1000 Things, that's an excellent challenge. I scrolled down to check out the pix of your quilts - it's really nice the way you've used your work to decorate different rooms of your home. Bright Blessings . . . Starr http://sidekicks.ning.com
