Finding Peace

John 14: 27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid

It is easy to run in circles- overcome by stress. 

But this God- who draws broken, scared, angry, hurting, people to Himself seeks to give us peace. 

This peace that is beyond anything the world understands. 

This peace that is found in meeting God in calm and quiet- letting Him still our hearts. 

This is peace- the kind I find when I take a moment to be still before my Creator and let Him calm and soothe my heart.

When Parenting feels like hell

Being a parent is by far one of the most difficult tasks a human will ever endure.

There are days when you feel you will pull your hair out- or go mad or lose it.

There are days when your kids will scream, whine, make faces at you, disobey, speak disrespectfully, hit, fight and cry. In fact- these might well be the majority of those days.

But there are days when your kids love you to the moon and back and you will look at them with pride and love and such joy.

But what do you do when this moment- this phase is so hellish?

My oldest is going through a phase (at least I hope that is what it is). He is nearly 7- and getting him to obey today and act respectully and do his homework, etc IS SO difficult. He mades faces, behaves and talksrudely, and does all manner of things which leave me wondering if this is really my child.

How can we survive these days? For me prayer is tops when I face a child I no longer know how to deal with. God alone can grant wisdom in these situations.

I did some reading on parenting this evening and liked this article- on correctly behavior.

This day has come to a close- the kids are calmly sleeping and I am mentally preparing for another day. Hoping and praying that tomorrow is more peaceful and my boy gets his joyful selt back-

 Oh LORD, grant us patience as parents and wisdom to guide these little people.

My Baby is 3

Today my youngest turned 3! Wow, it seems so big in so many ways. 

This sweet little boy with his happy spirit and easy smile. He is enthusiastic about nearly everything. He is going through a stage where things are AMAZING! He loved his new CAT bulldozer today and said it was AMAZING! Cute! 

He is such a little talker- continually conversing with himself at nap time- when he is supposed to be sleeping. 

He plays so well with his sister- she is like a little Mommy to him at times- precious. 

This dear child who entrance into this world healed so many fears I'd had of birth- he has so blessed our lives! 

Thank heaven for little boys!

Gifts that Hug your Mom

A mother is usually the most important person we will ever know in our lives. She is the one through which life comes to our fragile bodies. She is the one who sacrificed self-comfort, sleep, her own flesh for YOU. She is the one who gave hugs, kissed owies and prayed for you. 

A Mom is someone no one wants to do without! 

Mother's Day is a day when we stop and try to shower our special women with attention, to show them how much we really do appreciate all they have done! 

I don't know about you- but as a Mom I love knowing that my little ones took the time to make me a card, or sing me a song, or pick me some flowers to show they cared. 

For a lot of us our Moms are just far away that our arms too short to give that hug we long to give and money isn't enough to get us to her doorstep for this special day. 

My Mom loves knowing she is loved- in whatever way I can show it best. For me that is to create something or buy something just for HER. 

I created my silk scarves with the love and beauty of spring and peace in them. They make perfect Mom gifts- believe me- I know. My Mom loves getting them from me :) 

Perhaps you don't see a scarf in the colors  you desire, or maybe you want something so unique you need a custom order. Maybe a favorite quote, or song, or favorite flower. . . 

I have lots of new spring scarves in my shop and all custom orders need to be placed by April 10 to be sure to give me time to paint them and ship them. I can even include a beautiful card for your Mom with a special message just for you! 

So why not spoil your Mom, or perhaps send someone a hint of how you'd like to be spoiled and "hugged" with a silk scarf around your neck this Mom's Day. 

You are the best Mom your child has right now! Love yourself! And know that you are SPECIAL!
