I'm in a rut.
Actually, I'm in several ruts.
Ruts all over the place! Mostly stemming from unwanted change that's happening in my life.  The past couple years have seen changes at my church...not bad changes, but changes just the same. This year there will be changes in my family life, and changes in the workplace. Again, nothing really bad, but definitely different. I don't like change. I don't cope with it well. Right now I feel like the changes are coming at me from every direction...including from within! There are even physical changes going on...and not the kind of changes I want!

I'm working on getting out of the rut I'm in. Partly because I don't like being in it...mostly because when I'm in one it's because my focus isn't where God wants it to be. So I'm working on it.  I'm trying to change my focus, and I'm praying that I'll graciously adjust to the changes. 

In the meantime, I don't want my blog to go too long between posts, so I took some random photos of my craft room.  I thought I'd share them here today.  My goodness...I have a lot of stuff!
That's something that I think will never change!!


"Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by

 the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern

 what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and

 perfect." Romans 12:2

I've never been a big fan of change either. I hope you work yourself out of your rut soon.
I enjoyed looking around your craft room

Oh my dear friend I know exactly what you are speaking of. I've had so many changes over the past few years, its unreal. I too have changed in some ways myself, which was my reasoning for creating a new blog. Eventually we come to terms with changes, but they can leave repercussions they seem to change us in some ways. I'm sending up a prayer for you hun, may the Lord bless you with peace as you face each new change. Blessings on you dear Marie ♡

Oh, and I enjoyed seeing all your crafty things. That room must seem like a refuge for you. Creating and crafting away all your cares :)
