Whatever Your Hand Finds To Do…

“Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might.”  Ecclesiastes 9:10a

I am 50 years old, in menopause.  I have multiple sclerosis and trigeminal neuralgia.  I struggle with OCD and some of my fears border on phobias.   All that being said, I truly strive to be a prayer warrior and a productive member of society.  (The productive member of society part is difficult because I, in truth, could be a hermit !)

January follows a hectic holiday season and, at least in western PA, is a cold and snowy month.   It is easy for me to burrow my head and stop participating in life ~~ a feat also made easier by the fact that I no longer have children living at home.

The Lord convicted me of my “checking out of life” status today by reminding me of the verse in Ecclesiastes.  I was up most of the night with flu-like symptoms and could have stayed in bed.  However, armed with this verse, I made a pot of coffee, got dressed, made a list, turned on my Ipod and set my timer (45 minutes of work, 15 minutes of play).  It is 1:36 p.m. and my list is completed!!  I now have the freedom to bury my head in my pillow again !!

I thought I’d share a few pictures of the jewelry I made this month ~~ I especially like the pink earrings ❤

2nd edition of this design... in pink
