Hey friends, how are you today? How was your week? Was it stressful or did you trust and rely on the Lord a bit more than last week? I’ve been rather stressed this week, completely my fault though.  Being anxious over things I can’t control is rather instinctive for me. It’s that pesky desire to be the general manger of the Universe rearing its ugly head again. You see, I’ve been known to try to solve my problems and of course, other people’s problems, my way, using my own wisdom. Of course, we both know this will never end well.  I always have to make a conscious decision to surrender my problems over to the Lord.  Usually I have to do this several times a day, because I keep taking it back from Him. Some things, I have found, is easier to surrender to the Lord than others, especially those that are very close to us; yet of course this is exactly what I’ve been called to do.  My issues and troubles are safe and best in the hands of the Living, Almighty God.  He can handle it.fullsizeoutput_c98Can you believe this temperature? That was the absolutely, beautiful temperature that made its way to my neck of the woods yesterday.  Jackets were unnecessary, kids were playing in the park, people were riding their bikes and I went running outside.  It was a fantastic day.  We started off with 61 degrees today, but the temperature is falling like a rock and by the end of this day, we will be enjoying a wonderful 31 degrees, c’est la vie.200 blog postGuess what? Guess what? Guess what’s today? No, it’s not my birthday, that’s in May, just in case you were wondering.  It’s not our anniversary either, that’s in July, just in case you wanted to know.  It’s not the blog’s birthday either, that’s is May too.  Yep, we do share the same birthday.  Today; today is Becoming His Tapestry’s 200thblog post! Can you believe it? I can’t! 200 posts! Wow!bHTI remember, almost three years ago, when I began this blog, my prayer was, “Lord, please let me be consistent and help me to persevere”.  I had started another blog before; it probably lasted just about a year, before it fell to the wayside (all by itself, of course). I really, really wanted to do this and I knew I needed the Lord’s help to stay the course.  I have good intentions, but several incomplete projects are still awaiting my arrival.  But this was important to me, I really, really wanted to do this, primarily for me.   Our first born was getting ready for college and the second had just a few years, before she too left. I had to do this then, or it would never be done.pro-31-30I hoped to be an encouragement to others as I had been encouraged. I hoped that others would ‘see’ and know that my Great and Mighty God is faithful and true.  I wanted, my new friends, to believe in the wonder and beauty of the grace and mercy of a Loving God.  But I also needed them to realize that this Wonderful God cared not only of our spiritual life, He cared about the whole person; all aspects of us from head to toe.  He cares about our desires and our disappointments. He cared about what we cared about; whether that was our children, homeschool, natural hair, or losing that weight, because He loves completely. I wished that they would accept the Lord as their Savior, if they hadn’t yet.  I prayed that I would challenge my friends to come on this journey with me, of surrender and trust in the Great God of the Universe.  I hoped I did just that! Happy 200thblog post to me.  What are a few of your accomplishments? And again, how are you doing? How was your week?

    I too struggle with that control thing, not sure why I think I am better at controlling my life than the Creator who not only created me, but Everything. Silly human me.

  5. Congrats on the milestone! Blogging is a bit of a stress reliever to me. Your posts are encouraging and help me know I’m not alone so I’m glad you’re here!

    We enjoyed a couple days of nice weather too. And then more cold. But soon we will have the warm days again. I’m inside today and getting ready to enjoy some herbal tea and maybe a good book! I’m also actually editing photos, which I haven’t done in about two months!

  6. I totally relate to what you wrote about trying to be in control of the things we can’t control. Our solutions are not God’s solutions. Thanks for this!
    Congratulations on your 200th post. Keep it going!

    1. I could remember counting every single word, when I had to write a paper at school 😂😂. I never seemed to have enough words; now because of Christ, we are 200 posts later. I am amazed! My teachers would be proud 😂😂😂. We will keep that between us 😂😂😂😂😂
