The Difference

"Peace is not the absence of trouble, 
but the presence of God in the trouble"Sheila Walsh 

This weekend I spent two wonderful days with 7000  at the
Women of Faith conference.
One of the guest speakers was Sheila Walsh, a wonderful woman of God and author from Scotland. 

There is no way to condence her sharing into a few words but the Lord truly is using this woman to bring the promises of God to light in womens lives.

She shared that peace has become a trendy word again, as it was in the 70's.  But true peace used in John 4:27 uses the greek word  ειρήνη  that means 
"Total well being and security because 
God's presence is with you."

There is a place where peace can always be found.  
At the feet of Jesus and with His promises we choose to hold onto.

The bigger the trouble the faster you should run home to Him.

Blessings, Debbie

Bathroom Redo

This week I want to share my utility/bath makeover for 
Blue Monday and  Metamorphosis Monday. 
Make sure you click on their buttons on my side bar to visit!

When we moved in 8 years ago we redid the whole house with a tuscan theme.  I've gottten tired of the colors, so thought I would start with the utility/bath room. We live on the lake and I want a more casual theme. I want to paint all the woodwork white, it's cheep stuff not good wood.  The utility room was my practice room to see if it was something my hubby would want in the whole house.  He still isn't convinced but closer... Here is my new Blue room.

The framed picture is one I just enlarged on our computer from a photo we took in Florida a few years back.
I have several old windows and used one for the frame.
I used the cabinet we took down when we stacked the washer and dryer under the top one for more storage. I just flipped it so the handles were at the top. 
 I bought 3 floor tiles for the top.  They fit perfect. 
Having the dog dishes in there isn't pretty but with a 145 lb dog you don't want her mess in the rest of the house!


I love how much brighter it feels.
Just for fun thought I would share this.  
Hubby and I were playing scrabble on the computor 
and this came up on his turn. 
 Honesty we didn't change them!  
I guess it takes knowing the alphabet to have an IQ!

Pray you have a wonderful week and thanks for coming by!

Pink Saturday Miracle Makeover

Here brother, kiss me right here.

Miracles happen every day.  

We have to have open minds and eyes fixed on what's important to see them.  Going through my pictures I wondered what I wanted to share for this Miracle Makeover Weekend and Pink Saturday.  

This is one of my favorite pictures of my two youngest grandchildren. She was 3 days old, is now in 1st grade, my how time flys! 

I love makeovers for special people.  A few years back I did one for a cancer patient.  Here is my link to that picture

I pray that many of you choose to link and like in as many areas as you can!  Blessings, Debbie

Flowers and Goodwill find

When I saw this sweet vase at the Goodwill I knew I wanted it.  It was only $4. with half off!!! I tried to look up the arttist name but couldn't find anything so it's not worth anything as far as I know but I just fell in love with the soft pink and blues.


Amazing, it's been close to 100 with 105-110 heat index and I still have flowers blooming.  We have a well so I can water all I want. .
Our rosee of shanon is in full bloom

one of the small mini rose bushes

even my baby breath and some of my day lilies are still beautiful.

Thanks for stopping by! Blessings, Debbie

Single shot

{this moment}
A Friday ritual inspired by Soulemama. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

Blessings, Debbie
