amazing grace...

how sweet the sound. Of all the songs in the whole world, NOTHING touches my heart like this song. Chris Tomlin is singing it for me at the moment. My parents are on their way home. Yes, i cried many tears last night. But God is a strong tower and those who run to Him will be safe. So i just ran and ran. It's times like these that one realize the price you have to pay.
And in it all i am totally overwhelmed by His grace and His love. That no one who believes in Him, will ever be fatherless. Beautiful grace.

Thanks to ya'll who left the kindest most heart warming comments. I know i asked for it, but i have realized that if you don't ask, you don't receive. And the more specific you ask, the more specific you receive. So thank you, now i know.

I am doing some house cleaning today and i have to buy some groceries. I am expecting a Making Memories box soon and that means that i have lots of work to do. The designersnotes.com class is starting to fill up! If you have registered, please go to our private chat room {scroll down when you're in your profile page and you will find it} and introduce yourself. I have set up a "hello" thread. You just have to bear with me on this, i will write about this daily! Just because i cannot wait! Oh, and here is another sneak peek! (for those who is stressing about it: NO! you will not be water coloring hearts, i did that for you! but it's part of the class!free smileys)

I read this last night and wanted to share with ya'll. Psalm 103 for the message.
He forgives your sins—every one.
He heals your diseases—every one.
He redeems you from hell—saves your life!
He crowns you with love and mercy—a paradise crown.
He wraps you in goodness—beauty eternal.
He renews your youth—you're always young in his presence.

yes, amazing grace!
love and a kiss


ps... i will be drawing a number for Friday's post later in the week, so stay tuned!

Wilna, I just want you to know I love the light and happiness I find on a consistent basis on your blog. Thank you for sharing yourself with us. I left this the other day...but it got lost. I wanted to know if you would share more detailed glimpses. The layers of your work are amazing! And without being able to actually see them in person, I'm afraid we miss out on so many details.

THANK YOU for being you Wilna!
I LOVE coming to your blog and reading your thoughts....always inspiring.
And, YES, I'm sure it was hard to see your parents go. I believe you said you'd be going home for a visit this year.....those months will go by quickly.

Hi Wilna! I haven't checked your blog for a few days, since it's been fairly busy around here. I do love your blog though...it's always so uplifting and I love the verses you always have posted at the bottom :D I'm so sorry to hear your parents are gone back now...(((HUGS)))

My house is fairly quiet at the moment, so I'm just relaxing in that for a moment. I think you might already know, but I'm babysitting a 7 month old these days, so it's been fun remembering how to deal with babies again hehe. It's good practice heh! The kids think it is great, so that is cool.

Anyways, I really should take full advantage of his naptime and go get something else done haha. So have a great day!

Hi Wilna!
Thanks for more inspiration - beautiful words from Psalm 103! I'm off to check out that class thing ... we'll see, my little ones keep me pretty much booked but some art time for Momma is so needed. The art you posted today looks so interesting - would love some detail on how you created it.

Wilna, I've been away a bit (under the weather, but all right now). So, I haven't been by. I'm so glad to have the opportunity to stop in and connect a bit. Your blog is so refreshing and you are so inspiring -- which is a perfect word for you, really! Thanks so much for your honest and good approach to life. I love that He is so much a part of you and what you do and that you do such honor to Him. Such a great thing! Also, I wanted to give you a big HUG!!! My parents don't live quite as far, but it is still hard to say goodbye. So, I have sympathy and many HUGS for you! Take care and thanks so much for everything!
