I am a woman searching for my inner goddess and using fabrics, words and photography as my road map. I find great comfort and order in my creative efforts and hope that in sharing them you find a peace also. Welcome and Be Blessed!

Turned down but still outta tune

The music has been downsized to more appropriate wave lengths- the dishes say thanks. I can't say that I discovered the actually emotions plaguing me, they remain like mice skittering across the kitchen floor- you think you see them but you were not really certain.

I have a friend named Bertie. Bertie is perhaps the most powerful prayer warrior I know. She is totally devoted to prayer. Monday she was having a very normal day, sent her kids and hubby off to school and work and no doubt Bertie got busy praying for the day and all the requests before her. She received a call late that afternoon that her son Shawn had collapsed during a soccer game and they had to intubate him right there on the field. Shawn never regained consciousness and died later that night. He had just turned 18. Shawn was a totally sold out child of God and never doubted where his strength came from. No doubt when he heard the Lord call his name on that soccer field he recognized it and followed as he had for so many years.

I find myself wondering why when a person dies we say "rest in peace". If they have a relationship with Jesus then they are totally at peace- at peace with no pain and no suffering. Shouldn't we be praying that those left behind can "rest in peace"? Sleep comes only after hours of tears, sometimes days of tears. Peace never does seem to come to some.

For my dear friend Bertie I prayer that she will "rest in peace". We are only on earth for a season and some seasons are cut way too short by our earthly clocks but God is the Lord over All and that includes the seasons, our seasons and our clocks. But when our clock chimes that last time on earth we will be placed in that last season of our lives- eternity. I know where Shawn is and he is all smiles today. I know where my friend Bertie will be at the end of her earthly season and I am hoping that I have a house on the same block as hers!
Be Blessed Dear Ones! You are appreciated.

Red Queen's Mission Statement

I believe that things can always be cured with a hug and a cup of tea, fixed with either a needle and thread, duct tape, WD40 or coke, and that prayer works every time. I take in strays whether in animal or childlike form. I have been mother to many for a time and this is my way of keeping up with some of those straying children that I miss. I appreciate shock value and use it often to remind people that the world is round and colorful and we are not all living in square brown cardboard boxes with little holes cut in for windows. Look for the warm fuzzies- God delivers them up fresh every day just to say- I think you are pretty darned special- so special that I have your picture up on my fridge for life and I am sending you a hug to remind you that you matter to me.
