I always tend to do most things backwards so we will start with the therapy first.
After a somewhat blue day Tuesday I just had to get away so I decided to go antiquing at one of my favorite stores. My plan was to go there
and spend a few hours rummaging through old books and postcards
that are almost a dime a dozen since they are closing soon.
Had to go on to plan B when I arrived and they were not open.
So...I hit the antique malls in the same town instead.
Knowing I didn't have a lot of money to spend I thought I did pretty well ~

These wire easels were only $2.59 each, but then they were 40% off so I got the two they had for 1.55 each. I can always use easels and these are even pretty ones~ (purchased them at the craft part of one antique mall)
Close up of the easel without the postcard so you can see the pretty scroll work ~ Have you ever seen such a cute salt and pepper set ??? ADORABLE is all I can say ~ I had to get this sign...anyone who really knows me knows that *I LOVE chocolate* so this was perfect...even the colors ~Speaking of emotions...
I let my emotions get the best of me some days even though I try so hard not to. I spent the better part of the morning and some of the afternoon Tuesday
falling apart and crying over a family situation that involves
this precious little granddaughter of mine.
All the while knowing there is absolutely nothing in my power
that I can do to change anything.
As a mom I want to fix things , but I can't do that anymore.
However, I do know a God who is all powerful and He alone can change hearts...
praying for that today.
I can see Him working, but I want everything fixed instantly and completely.
I need to learn that these things do not happen on my terms, but on God's terms and according to His perfect timing.
I really had to make myself stop the tears because we had friends coming over for dinner (which haven't been here in a long time and we did have a great time with them) Sometimes I think if I just have a good all out bawling session maybe I could get it out of my system. I think it is probably even good for the soul.
Cast all your cares upon Him; for He careth for you.
I Peter 5:7
Asking you to pray with me... Blessings~
