We're having a Winter Storm today here in Kansas. Lots of snow, cold, blowing snow. The sun is out now, it's BEAUTIFUL.
Wanted to share one of my latest creations with you all today. Above is a close up of one of the items. I have a set of two Shabby Pantry Boxes for Easter listed on eBay right now. I'm so happy with the way they turned out. You can see all my listings if you click on my Miss Pootsie's Banner at the bottom of our blog or,
Also wanted to share this lovely little devotion I found this morning. I found it at http://www.rbc.org/odb/odb-02-03-08.shtml

It Looks Bad
READ: Psalm 12
I will set him in the safety for which he yearns. —Psalm 12:5
King David looked out at the world and was troubled. He didn’t need the Internet to paint a bleak picture of society or The New York Times to remind him of crime and suffering. Even without a cable news show to give him all the bad news, he saw the evil.
He looked around and saw that “the godly man ceases.” He noticed that “the faithful disappear.” In his world, everyone spoke “idly” to his neighbor “with flattering lips and a double heart” (Ps. 12:1-2).
This description may sound like the theme of a TV show, but it was life, circa 1,000 BC. While we may view society’s evils as much worse than anything before, David reminds us that evil is not a 21st-century innovation.
But David’s words also give us hope. Notice his reaction to the bad news he bore. In verse 1, he turned to God and cried, “Help!” Then he implored God with specific needs. The response he got was positive. God promised that because He rules righteously, He would provide protection and safety (vv.5-7).
When you are discouraged by all the bad news, cry out for God’s help. Then bask in the confidence of His assurance. Three thousand years after David, God is still, and always will be, in control. —Dave Branon
When through life’s darkened maze I go,
And troubles overwhelm my soul,
Oh, grant me, Lord, the faith to know,
That You are always in control.
—D. De Haan
We have nothing to fear, because God is in control.
That devotional spoke VOLUMES to me this morning. I hope God can speak to you through it too. We just have to TRUST GOD and have FAITH in HIM. How about if I pray for you and you pray for me? Send me a comment so I'll know who to pray for.
