    I love love love the second picture. Speaks volumes–your bible on top of the decorating magazines–which if you are anything like me,the magazines don't get read. Just a lofty ambition. All you really need right now is the large cup of joe or tea and the Word of God to get you through.

    Ah, but you are doing what is most important in life. Blogging, crafting, etc. are fun and rewarding endeavors but being there with a friend in the Word is the most important thing. Your friend is truly blessed to have you. But, I do think the Flamin' Cheetos would be a better pick. . . .

      You're right! Times like these put things into perspective and remind me what's important. And I'll have to try the Flamin Cheetos next!

    Life is all about mountain peaks and valleys, isn't it? Just know that your valley won't be forever..in fact, you are climbing to the peak again right now 🙂 Saying a prayer for you as you walk with your friend! Have you tried Raisonettes with popcorn?? They're my little guilty pleasure 🙂

      Thank you so much for your prayers! No, I haven't tried that combo, but chocolate always helps!

    Julie, I love your blog and the fact you reflect on real life. What you give is truly beauty beyond decorating and crafts. It is your heart. A friend gave me a quote when I was going through Breast Cancer-"Friends are angels who lift us to our feet when our spirits have trouble remembering how to fly." Anon You have my prayers for strength and peace for you and your friend. God BlessYou Both. -Debra

    Praying for you right now. Life is really, really hard and Jesus said it would be so (John 16:33). Makes us long for our real Home.
