Five Minute Friday - {After}

It's Friday and it took me awhile to get to the computer to write but we're finally there.  Five Minute Friday is a generous community of people who simply take five minutes to write on a suggested theme, without worrying or editing or thinking too much about it.  Then we all link up and encourage each other.  Want to play along?  Our prompt for today is:

AFTER...

Go...

After we cleaned up yesterday and had everything de-cluttered and vacuumed and looking fabulous we decided to mess it up again in the very best of ways.
My legless dolls..we named them all Leg-o-less!!




We had a crafty day and even one of the four boys joined in because there were no electronics today and won't be for awhile...so imaginations are beginning to unfurl as they disconnect from screens.

Ephesians 2 tells us our before and after in vivid detail.  We were sinners. After the tree, after the garden was closed to us, God had a plan that gives us the most amazing after.

He's always cleaning up our messes and we're always making new ones.  He cleans up after us with a cross and an empty tomb, sweeping away the mess we've made.
Grandma came over, too!

The timer is almost up and I can't concentrate because the kids are after me to make supper and let them have pop and giving me suggestions and asking questions and I guess the timer is going off and it is now after five...

STOP...

Then you link up at Lisa Jo's and go encourage someone else by reading their post and commenting...that's all for today.

Love your leg-less dolls.... will they stay that way? What is the story on that! I admire crafty people... I am not so much crafty. Looks like you have a great time with your kids.

Your legless dolls remind me that I ordered one...last April? Speaking of distractable. OY! I envy your craft room. It looks awesome! I wish we didn't have screens today or I'm glad for them, I don't know which. I was in bed for most of it. I love that you sound so much like me...minus the sewing...and crafting...and...

"After the tree, after the garden was closed to us, God had a plan that gives us the most amazing after." Yes, thank you for that! Thanks for writing amidst the chaos of life and kids!

I love my craft room, too!! We spilled out a little yesterday. The dolls are a little business I started and those are the ones I'm working on right now. They are called 'Button Beauties' when they have all their parts!
