Alright, so here we begin with what I think is the next craze. How to make your own personal journal. I think I mentioned them in an earlier post. So, here is my first one that I made. The first one didn’t turn out bad.
I don’t want to buy a ‘Filofax’ at least not yet. Although, it does sound like a good buy for a person on the go that has to stick to a daily regimen.
So, for a lot less, less money, I made one from a mead composition notebook. For now, until I find one more durable or I’ll purchase a small three ring binder.
Still doing my research of how I’m going to use these journals. Which would probably be one for each different are in my life. In which would consist of a devotional, blogging and you-tube, baking, and time management/marketing journal. Ya, I already have quite a few.
It’s that time of the year! My baking time begins. With so many birthdays and holidays around the corner, One is always trying to get as much done as possible. And if you can put a smile on someone’s face, that’s even better.
My husbands birthday kicked off the first cake of the season. Now next comes my eldest son. November 19th. I have some ideas but still doing a bit more research. Definitely, German chocolate!
Ya, as for my writing. Still working on that. Didn’t really put that much effort into it this past spring and summer. Which I regret. I know I really need to work on it. It’s the face of the cake. I know it has to look nice. lol
The chocolate frosting came out to be the right color as for the purple. I was really pleased. Both were home made. The cake bread as well.
Let me start with this. I had a pre-paid phone where you add minutes as you go along. But being tired of running out of minutes and using the minutes sparingly, My son convinced me to go on a monthly plan. Even though at first I was totally against it. When he saw the flip phone I purchased, He said ‘no’ and purchased a smart phone for me instead.
Now on the other end. My eldest landed a good paying job, in which we’re all still in awe about.
Now, it so happened that I got myself in a bit of a jam. One that I just in no way forsee.
As I drove to pick up a few pizzas, the business parking lot was jammed. So I went to a different parking lot thinking ‘I’ll just run in and out’ What could possibly happen? No pizzas were ready and there was an 8 min wait. Immediately, I thought. Go get the car and bring it back to this parking lot. Ha, ha ha. Did you think I’d listen, NO! Obviously 8 mins was a long time. And when I got back to the car, yap, you guessed it. I had gotten the boot.
Now, never having experienced this and I have to admit ‘I panicked!’ I just was beside myself. So here I was blowing up my son’s phones. ( In which I might add, my eldest son just bought himself a new I-phone) and also came with cash to bail me out.
Now, I know people don’t believe in miracles these days. But just like I did not forsee this happening. God did! The timing for this situation was just providential.
If this would of happened 4 or 6 months ago. The outcome would of been and I’m also sure of it, a lot worst! Were not perfect and were going to make mistake but when your faithful to Christ, He’s faithful to you. You can count on Him to take care of you. In whatever storm we put ourselves in. He’s there to help us get through it all the time.
Now ya. I could say ‘It just a coincidence’ That it just happen to fall during this time. But as far as I’m concerned, this was just a darn good MIRACLE!!!!!
