SALT - Serenity

What exciting times for the SALT team, we're pleased to have announced the new team and we're slowly getting to know each other. What a blessing to have Unity in Christ, and the common bond of being able to be creative. Thank you to all of our readers and participants, we trust you will be blessed through our endeavours to be SALT!

It was my turn to set the challenge. I have to confess it crept up on me all of a sudden, so I quickly got inspiration for theme from a bookmark that I have stuck near my computer -

God Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Reinhold Niebuhr.
I've had a busy week, going to London, visiting an aunt and friends, then making our way on Eurostar to Disney Land Paris all with 3 young boys. From time to time I would contemplate the theme, and again I have to confess I deffinately was not feeling serene at times. The mixture of hormones and the overwhelming nature of Disney, and dealing with the children left me frustrated and moody. However on the Sunday we ventured into Paris to find an English speaking church and was greatly blessed by the ministry. One of the things that the speaker said was being calm was a choice. We had a time of prayer in small groups where we asked to share a worry or concern, I asked for prayer in dealing with the children. God is so good, he helped and the last few days have been marked with a sense of more calmness and serenity! So, after my busy week of not feeling serene, I've come to realise serenity doesn't just come to those who think about it, it has to accompany an action. A deliberate putting of one's faith in God, acknowledging the gift of his Son Jesus, being deeply sorry for the sins we've committed, the acceptance of forgiveness and then living a life that glorifies God and what he has done. It is in this truth that we find true serenity and the ability to call on God to keep changing us and help us to take control of our minds so we can be SERENE.

Please enjoy the contributions from the team, if you are inspired please create and tell us, we'd love to see what you make.

The Jailbreak event for Endometrriosis UK went really well, apparantly the winning team got to Rome!

Here is some pics of some ladies with the corsages they made on my `Make it' stall. The blue corsage was made by a 12yr old boy for his Mum! Aaaw!

SALT - New Life, and other stuff

Lythan set the theme this week of New Life on SALT this week, please check out what she has written.

We're about to announce our new design team on SALT, had a few technical issues, so watch this space!

Found this picture of Luke when he was a couple of weeks old. One of my bridesmaid's parents came to visit and they took this pic! So Nicola's mum if you're reading this, I have you to thank!

The birth of a baby is such a blessing, but the greatest thing for me is the potential that child's life has in Christ, living a life for God, in his Will and to his Glory. Having a son for me also reminds me of THE great sacrifice and gift that was made by God himself, when he gave Jesus to die on the cross - for me!

Paper - Anna Griffin, Melissa Frances, Basic Grey
Flowers - Prima

Punches - Martha Stewart, The Punch Bunch
Stash - Buttons, lace, floss, brads

You may have noticed (if you're a regular reader...do I have any?!) that I've not been blogging as much. I've been trying to cut down on computer time and prioritise a bit more. I have to say that home life has seemed a bit calmer, of course there are still trials, but I have felt better equipped to face them. Crafting time has not been as much of a priority as I've been busy with other things. It's all good though, all part of me growing and maturing and learning to be more like Jesus.

I was a very proud mummy this last week, as Luke came third in his recitation at his school Eisteddfod! He also got 2nd for the tallest daffodil in his class - no we didn't grow it, Tom got it from the garden at his work! So luke won the grand total of 30p this yr, 10p more than last year.

The other thing we're busy with at the moment, is going to EuroDisney! Tom managed to win, yes WIN! a trip there, including hotel, and Eurostar and £200 spending money (which we've already spent on getting the passports for all the family!) So we're off to London next wk, staying with my folks, visiting an aunt and seeing afore mentioned bridesmaid all before going to Paris on the Friday. Woohoo, I'm secretly quite excited!
